Newsletter April 2018


Dear Parents, Friends, Students and Teachers!

With April comes warmer weather hopefully and our last few classes of German for the school year.

Due to our snowday in March, our term will continue to April 19th which
will be the final day of class.
As a replacement to our regular closing ceremonies, the German Heritage Language School is hosting a "Frühlingssportfest mit Mini-WM" this year. On Saturday April 14, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm, we're going to play soccer and traditional German games like Sackhüpfen and Eierlaufen on Field 4 at the BMO Soccer Centre (Field 4 has its own entrance on the left side of the main entrance).
Everyone is welcome - children, siblings, parents, grandparents, our adult students, teachers, Board members, but please RSVP here
(indicating the number of people) or with your respective teachers! Please bring snacks (finger food) for our potluck, water, and indoor shoes.

Important Dates:
April 14: Saturday, 2:00 to 4:00 pm Frühlingssportfest mit Mini-WM
BMO Soccer Centre Field 4
210 Thomas Raddall Dr, Halifax
- please bring snacks to share
