Community Engagement

Freiwilligenarbeit 社区参与度

Research shows numerous benefits to children, their parents and their school when parents volunteer at the school. 

It increases adult-child communication, increases students' overall academic success and creates a positive, cooperative, and inclusive atmosphere. Volunteering plays such a vital role in enriching your child’s educational experience here at German International School.  

GIS families are asked to complete and record volunteer hours each school year. Hours can be completed by any family member, friend or alumni. We enjoy getting to work with the entire family on various projects throughout the year.

The tiered-level recognition system for our volunteers:

  • Basic Level = required for each family, 25 hrs
  • VIP Level = 50 hours or more, school-wide recognition and GIS gift
  • Über Level = 75 hours, school-wide recognition, GIS gift, invitation to cocktail hour
  • Exuberant Level = 125 hours, school-wide recognition, GIS gift, invitation to the 1995 Club Dinner

Families who choose GIS have a deep commitment to the school’s mission and philosophy. Parent involvement gives the school a rich, nurturing environment and provides parents opportunities to work closely with the faculty, form relationships with other parents, and become invested in the our community.

We thank GIS families anad friends for sharing their valuable time with us. We’re ready for a fun year of working and playing together, making GIS a great place to be! Please review the many ways you can engage in our community as a volunteer.
