Roundtables at the Berlin Metropolitan School are aimed at both educating and fostering discussions amongst all stakeholders of the community, with the central purpose of extending key components of our culture, vision and mission statement. We will welcome Silke Friedrich, Executive Director, who will offer a presentation on school program developments, building and facility improvements, as well as important upcoming accreditations BMS will pursue. Parents are cordially invited to attend the evening´s presentation and ensuing discussion on November 4, 2015 beginning at 7:00pm.

ELC Lantern Parade and Diwali Celebration!
Wednesday, Nov. 11th, 4:45-6:15pm
Looking forward to Halloween over the October holidays? Here are some fun things to read/watch/do with your kids!
* An amusing series of stories about a witch and her black cat: Winnie the witch (Winnie's website offers up some spooky activities and coloring pages as well).
* Another funny tale about a witch, from the creators of the Gruffalo: Room on the Broom.
* For those early readers (or parents who enjoy an amusing read-aloud), Arnold Lobel's "Owl at Home" is a wonderful collection of short chapters on Owl's antics at home. The second chapter, in which Owl is tormented by two strange bumps at the end of his bed, could be deemed a short and spooky tale.
