2019-20 GIPA BOOK

What is the GIPA Book?

The GIPA Book is an annual memory book that beautifully showcases our German program students. It's a fantastic way to preserve your child's memories of their school experience and classmates. The GIPA Book measures 8.5" x 11" and is printed in full color on high-quality glossy stock.

The GIPA Book is produced by a staff of unpaid parent volunteers who dedicate many months to the Book's creation. To help GIPA cover the cost of producing the Book, in addition to selling the Book we also sell personal dedications and corporate advertisements. Any money left over after paying for printing expenses goes right back to GIPA to benefit the students of the German language program.
