Teach a child German and .... their world broadens. They will be able to converse not only with German speaking family and friends but also with the 175 to 200 million other native speakers. Our Annual Fund campaign is now underway. The GSC offers students a path to language fluency and an understanding of German culture. Over the past 40 years we have had hundreds of students pass the Sprachdiplom, the most advanced exam for German-language learners. We keep our classes small to ensure that all our students get the attention that they need.
Our goal is to keep tuition accessible to our families despite continuously rising costs. Tuition and support from Germany contribute to meeting our budget, but we count on our annual fundraising campaign to close the gap. This is where you step in and help: donate online or see our Annual Fund Appeal for additional ways to give.
On Sep 17, 2016 the GSC took part in the 59th German-American Steubenparade on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
Thanks to the generous financial support of the Literary Society foundation over 40 students, parents and teachers were able to participate in the parade on GSC's own float. On a beautiful sunny day, we soaked in the wonderful atmosphere along the way, handed out Gummibärchen and promoted German language learning.
After the parade a group of families continued the celebration at the Radegast Hall, a German-style beer hall, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
With wonderful weather and many, many smiling faces, this year's Steuben Parade was a great success and exciting experience for all participants from the German School of Connecticut.
A replay of the parade will be available shortly at http://totalwebcasting.com/view/?func=VOFF&id=twclient&date=2015-09-19&seq=1. The GSC float is towards the end of the parade. Also watch out for our own Junior Princess Kristina Petzold and Miss German-America 2015, Samantha Hart, a former GSC Teacher and TA.
