Elementary School celebrates Advent

For the past four weeks, all students of grade 1 to grade 4 met every Monday morning to celebrate Advent – this very special time before Christmas.
Each week, one grade presented music, poems or stories. Afterwards, all students sang our favorite song “Dicke rote Kerzen” together. It was a delight to see how much everyone is looking forward to the holidays!!
