Dear former GSC graduate,

We are delighted to invite you to our newly founded German School of Connecticut Alumni Club. It will not only be a great tool for you to reconnect with former classmates, but most importantly the Alumni Club will help current and prospective DSD 1 and 2 students learn about your experience with these exams and inform them about future career opportunities.
Over the next couple of years, we hope to develop the Alumni Club into an extensive network of highly qualified professionals that can potentially help and support German School of Connecticut graduates in their search for internships and job placements.
We are very excited to be able to announce the first round of talks on the topic “DSD and Beyond” and cordially invite you to join us! If you would like to get involved as a speaker at any of our future events, please do not hesitate to reach out.

October 20, 2021, at 7:30pm over Zoom
Speaker for the DSD 1: Katherine Riedling
Speaker for the DSD 2: Connor Roché

Dear GSC Community,

Please be aware of our school's COVID policy for returning to in-person learning. If you have not already done so, please fill out the waiver (https://mcusercontent.com/e2ed2d640c9120e288a86b508/files/f4f7dc60-4264-85cf-ad03-18bb0f884237/Waiver.pdf)and bring it to school on the first day or send a scanned copy either to your teacher or to principal@germanschoolct.org. This is a one time requirement.

Please make sure to fill out the attached Health Screening Form every Saturday for anybody who wants to enter the school building. https://mcusercontent.com/e2ed2d640c9120e288a86b508/files/70c2b226-e6c7-c04d-0af0-81ae39985bf1/Health_Screening_Form.pdf

If you have to answer one of the questions with yes, please bring along a negative PCR test no older than 5 days and you or your child can still enter the building.

If you or your child suffers from seasonal allergies, please bring along a doctor’s note.

After traveling either domestically (outside of the Tri-State area) or internationally, please obtain a negative PCR test 3-5 days after you return and bring it to school along with your Health Screening Form.

As a Saturday School we cannot guarantee cohorts, therefore it is very important to adhere to all the safety measures that we have put in place. Thank you for keeping our community safe and our school open:

  • Health Screening Form
  • Mandatory Mask Mandate
  • Social Distancing
  • Ventilation and Filtration
  • Staggered Breaks and Restroom Usage

As a general principle, we will act in accordance with guidance from the CDC, the State of Connecticut, the individual school districts, and our landlords.

We like to share also our Covid 19 presentations for Stamford and West Hartford which were shared with parents during our orientation zoom calls:

Congratulations Zain Athar on your graduation from Columbia College with a BA in Economics-Mathematics and concentration in German Literature and Cultural history. Zain started at the West Hartford campus in the non-native speakers program, but soon after he switched into the heritage learners program. He graduated in 2017 with the DSD-II - Deutsches Sprachdiplom/German Language Certificate. The DSD-II provides proof of German language proficiency required for admission to institutions of higher education in Germany. Despite Covid-19, Zain did an internship in Germany last fall before completing his last semester at Columbia. His quote "it was only because of my great experience with you and GSC that I completed my minor in German". Best wishes for your next adventure from all of us at the German School of CT.
