Preparing for first grade

As an international school, we are happy to incorporate some local German traditions such as that of the obligatory “Schultüte” (school cone) to celebrate starting the 1st Grade. The cone is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little sweeter. On Friday, parents whose children go to Grade 1 in August were invited to come in and craft a “Schultüte” together with their child.

We had a lot of fun and are very proud of the outcome. On the first day of school, in the coming school year,  parents will then fill these cones with treats, school supplies and small gifts. We have a number of very excited future 1st Graders.
