Carneval 2016

On Tuesday, February 9, 2016 we will celebrate Carnival with lots of “Helau”, “Alaaf” and great cheer!

Dear Children,

On this special day you can expect great music, donuts, Face Painting and a fashion show. Around 10:30 am, we will go to the Upper School to see a magic show and afterwards we will visit the Head of School, Ms. Palenzatis who very likely will have some treats for us.

Dear Parents, please send your children to Preschool wearing their costumes. If you think that your child might not like to be wearing her or his costume the entire morning, please think about sending a change of clothes. Weather permitting, we will go outside.

Der Kindergartenboogie zur Melodie von „Rucki-Zucki“ (lyrics for our traditional Carnival song)

Das ist der Kindergartenboogie,

Kindergartenboogie, Kindergartenboogie,

den tanzen wir alle so gern!

Und dann den rechten Arm herein

und dann den linken Arm herein

und dann rechten Arm herein

und dann schütteln wir ihn aus.

Das ist der Boogie, Boogie, Boogie

alle drehen sich herum

und dann beginnt’s von vorn.
