Parent Café - We Miss You!

Each Thursday, the German School invites parents, teachers and staff to the Parent Café in the cafeteria from 8:00 to 10:00 am. Every third Thursday of the month, speakers are invited to present a parenting-related topic such as “Positive Parenting Techniques in an Age of Electronic Excess” orStrategies to Help Your Child Establish Organization Routines at School and at Home“. Unfortunately, the turnout at our Parent Café has been very low. We would like to find out why and would appreciate your feedback. 

- Are the topics not interesting enough?

- Is Thursday not a good day?

- Is 8:00 am too early?

Please let us know how we can make our Parent Café a success. Please email Kerstin Hopkins at khopkins@dswash.org or call 301.767.3815. Thank you!
