Christmas holidays 2021

Dear Parents,

As you may have already seen in the press, the education administration of the Senat has brought the start of the Christmas holidays forward.

The Christmas holidays start on December 23rd, 2021 and end on December 31st, 2021. The first day of school is then January 3, 2022.

Parent/Teacher Meeting Day October 26th 10am-5pm

Dear Parents,

Today you will receive the links to the doddle lists of the individual teachers of your children. We hope that we have planned enough appointments!

Since this is the first time we are holding a parent/teacher meeting day in this form, it is impossible to assess whether everything will work as we thought it would.

It would be completely beyond the time frame if all subject teachers spoke to all parents! That is why the subject teachers in the upper classes will give their comments to the class teachers. The class teachers will then pass these on to you. If you still need to talk to individual subject teachers, please let the class teachers know. Talks can then be arranged after the 26th of October.

Flea Market at our school

Finally the time has come again !

On 18 September 2021 from 10 am – 1 pm there will be another flea market in our schoolyard where you can sell your basement treasures.

All sales booths will be set up outside in the schoolyard. When setting up your sales booths, please keep a distance of 2m to the next sales booth and wear medical masks when selling.

Please use the following link to register if you would like to make a sales booth:

flohmarkt@charles-dickens-gs.de

Please bring your own tables for the sales booth.
The booth fee is 10 Euros (table) and 5 Euros (blanket). The proceeds will go to the children of the school.

Open Day

The Open Day 2021 takes place on Saturday the 11.9.2021 from 10:00 till 13:00 am.

Please remember that you have to be vaccinated, recovered or tested and please bring this form for contact tracking.

All other information about registration can be found under “Admission”.

School-Opening for all Children from Wednesday, 9 th June 2021

Dear parents,

As you have probably already learned from the media, all the children from one class can come to school at the same time from Wednesday, 9 June 2021. This email is to inform you of how we plan to organise this development.

The current plan will continue until the summer holidays, with the only change being that all the children in a class should attend and come to school every day. Start and end times, as well as break and meal times, remain the same. Besides subject teaching, the focus in the last two weeks will be on bringing together the two groups that have been separated for months. The teaching staff will carefully initiate this process with excursions, detailed discussions and social learning.

Since compulsory attendance is suspended until the summer holidays, we would be pleased if you could pick up your children immediately after classes or let them go home themselves. However, childcare until 4.00 p.m. is guaranteed if required. In this case, please speak to the educator responsible.

As things stand today, full classroom teaching will continue in the next school year. If there are any changes, we will inform you in good time.

Yours faithfully,

Frank Effenberger

Headmaster
