For many years GIPA and the second-grade families have hosted 1st grade students and their families for a welcome picnic. It is a great chance to meet other families in the program, meet the teachers, and reconnect with friends after the summer. This event has been so successful that for 2017-2018 we are having a similar picnic for middle school families. The idea is to have the 7th grade welcome the new 6th graders to the German program at Carver Middle School.
This year the picnic will be hosted at Matheson Hammock Park Saturday Aug 26. See this PDF flyer for more information.
To incoming 6th graders and returning 7th graders and Board members: Please try to make it! It is always a show of support to the new incoming parents who are much calmer going into the German journey after speaking to some experts 😉
