FROGS – Friends of the German International School Washington D.C.
The Friends of the German International School Washington D.C. (FROGS) is a volunteer organization, started by interested parents in 1969, dedicated to:
- Supporting and promoting the German International School Washington D.C.
- Enriching the lives and experiences of our students and their families
- Working together and having fun!
Our success depends on our members – on their personal efforts and commitment and on their financial support through membership dues and donations.
We are always looking for new members! Our goal is for every member of a German International School Washington D.C. organization to be a member of the Friends.
WHAT DO THE FRIENDS DO?
- We organize
- The Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) held at the School in December
- Making and selling Advent Wreaths in November
- Dance Classes for students starting in the 9th Grade
- The Winter Ball, which caps the end of the dance classes
- We run a volunteer handicraft organization the Arts & Crafts Group where everyone can make items to be sold at the Christmas Market.
- We finance student programs and activities (K through 12) that cannot be funded from the GISW’s official budget.
- We actively participate in Welcome Night and Open House events.
- We promote the German International School Washington D.C. !
