Are you IN?

Did you know, that donating can be fun and may serve you very well personally? Die Annual Giving Campaign at the DSW makes it possible:

This April, every Friday at 11.30 am, two great prizes will be raffled off among the “Givers of the Week” – one for parents and one for children (More than one child? More than one prize!)


Winning family No.1: The DSW invites the whole class of your child to a round of ice cream.

Winning family No. 2: Personal parking spot until the next Annual Giving Campaign (transferrable).


Winning family No.1: Your child’s favorite song will be aired throughout the school.

Winning family No. 2: Park & Party – personal parking spot for all main events at the school (Summer Festival – Back-To-School Night – 5K-Oktoberfest – St. Martin’s Parade – Christmas Market)

Week 3:

Winning family No.1: Your child may spend one break in the Teacher’s Lounge and have his picture taken with the teacher(s) of his choice.

Winning family No. 2.: Park & Party (see above)

Week 4:

Winning family No.1: Pizza Lunch with the Head of School in her conference room for your child and three friends.

Winning family No. 2.: Park & Party (see above)

All winners will be featured with their pictures on the school monitors, the Wednesday Mail and the Website.

Are you IN? True to our Motto, the heart of the campaign is the idea of school spirit; the hope, that the participation among colleagues and families is as high as possible. This is not about how much you give, it’s about all of us coming together as a community. The names of all donors will appear on the homepage of this website. A 100% participation rate among families and colleagues would send a fantastic signal within and outside the school community. How about donating today?

If we can raise $20.000 by April 30, we will put three great projects into action. And as a bonus: The first 40 donors who give more than $199 Dollars will be invited by the German Ambassador to a reception in his residence.

Thank you so much for your support!

Kind regards,

Your Development-Team.
