German Exchange Returns

On Saturday, March 2, 2019 the German Exchange group will return to the States. As a member of this group I want to thank our community member and German-America, Britta Roper for doing the lion's share of the work to make this experience possible. It was a true learning experience and we were treated so well by our German friends.I would like to acknowledge how well our students represented GD as well. We were flooded with compliments on their abilities to adjust to their new environments and contribute positively to the students at our sister-school. I know I learned so much from this experience and I hope it will be an equally substantial learning experience for our students as well. Thanks to all of them, who are listed below for representing G-D in such a positive light.

The Class of 2020 will be starting up candy sales again! We really appreciate everyone's help with candy donations in the past and were hoping to ask the same from you again. We have been working hard and have been really successful in raising money towards our prom, but we need to continue with this effort. If you would be willing to help out, any candy donation would be really appreciated! If you choose to donate, please send your donations to Mrs. Erickson in Room 124 or to a Class of 2020 Student Council member. Make sure to leave your name on the box so we can thank you for everything you've done!

Thanks from the Class of 2020
