The Parent Café – every Thursday

 Your place to converse, meet and enjoy each other’s company

Parents are important – not only for our students but the entire school community! Because we value our DSW parents’ input and opinions, the German School Washington D.C. introduced the new Parent Café. The purpose of the Parent Café is to give you the opportunity to meet, exchange thoughts and share experiences in an informal and casual setting with coffee, tea and small treats. DSW teachers and staff are also more than welcome to join.

Why don’t you come stop by? The Parent Café opens its doors every Thursday morning from 8:00 to 10:00 AM and every Thursday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:00 PM. For a small contribution of $1 you receive a cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea. Like a public café, guests can come and go at any time and stay how long they wish.

We look forward to seeing you at our new Parent Café and wish all guests a wonderful time with interesting conversations.
