Thanksgiving Spirit

Weekly Update from the Director - November 10, 2023  
Dear GISC Community,
Just a quick greeting to you in the spirit of Thanksgiving. Every morning, your children meet me enthusiastically at the front door, and as a rule, our students run into the school building, ready to learn and greet their friends and their teachers. On that note, please know how much I appreciate our students and our teachers as I could not think of a better way to get the day started in contemplating the joy of learning.
Thank you, vielen Dank!
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to remind ourselves how gratitude builds a better world. There are clear benefits to the recipient of gratitude messages, and I am sure you are aware of the many benefits for the giver or messenger of gratitude – there is scientific evidence of how practicing gratitude helps us.
I invite you to join me in expressing thanks to our school community by making a gift to the GISC Fund – it is tops on my list for giving and receiving.
Thank you,
German International School Chicago is a preschool through 8th grade school that prepares students to become well-rounded, creative, and responsible global citizens. We provide students with a rigorous German-English bilingual education in a supportive and individualized learning environment.
