GIS celebrates Fasching!

Did you know that Fasching, or Karneval is on February 9th? There is still time to brainstorm and make yourself or your child a costume! We celebrate this school-wide tradition every year at the school, by allowing our students to dress up, participate in a costume parade, watch a staff-led play, and even indulge in a Krapfen donut (watch out for the one filled with mustard, though!).
