To give instruction authenticity and to make learning fun, students participate in a number of cultural activities. Some of them involve the parents and the community.
Each year, teachers and students participate in the Steuben Parade in New York City. Students learn about Advent and other German pre-Christmas customs. Christmas calendars are sold. At Christmas, students present a festive program for their parents and the community.
The West Hartford school participates in the Reimfest of elementary students in Connecticut.
The school year ends with a poetry recitation contest in Stamford and a picnic at both schools.
Students 12-15 are encouraged to take advantage of a summer program in Germany. A three week homestay with a German family, school visits, excursions to castles, old cities, the first printing press and a chocolate factory offer exciting experiences for adventurous youngsters.
Don't forget to check our schedule for all the extra events taking place at our school or where the German School of Connecticut is actively participating!
For those who are interested, a small library of German books and videos is available to all students.
