Open House February 12, 2012 2:00-4:00pm

German Track at the International School of Arizona

A group of parents, the International School of Arizona and the German Consulate in Phoenix are planning a German Track that will start in August 2012. Attached is an overview of the program as well as our poster. If you have the opportunity to hang up the poster, we can send you additional copies in an 11 x 17 format. We are very interested to not only have parents with a german background involved in the program but also americans and other nationalities. Therefore it is important to spread this information as much as possible.

We are looking for parents that are interested in actively working with us to realize this program. Contributions are also welcome. Please contact the International School of Arizona directly if you have any questions, would like to help within the program or would like to donate. You will be contacted by one of the group members. We are very thankful for any help, contributions, input and circulation of the information about the program.

The following events are scheduled within the next couple of weeks:

  • We are going to invite all to an official meeting for the German Track. This meeting is scheduled Mid/End February.
  • On January 29 the German American Chamber of Commerce, Inc., Office for the Western United States has organized a special tour for kids during the exhibition "Das Haus - Innovations in Renewables and Energy Efficiency": tempe.dashaustour.com/international-school-of-arizona-tour-3pm/.
