Dates to Remember:
Tea at the Garmisch Ritz - Mrs. D and her daughter provided the fourth grade with a wonderful, elegant full English Tea. We had Victoria sponge cake; tea cakes; mince pies; scones with jam and clotted cream; cucumber sandwiches; marmite sandwiches, meringues, and cookies -- and, of course, English tea. It was a fabulously delicous spread. A very special THANK YOU to Mrs. Dfor treating us to this wonderful afternoon tea. - pictures
GEMS Holiday Program - Thank you to the entire Garmisch community for supporting the
school Holiday Program. The children had a wonderful time performing for all of you.- pictures
Hockey Day - Hockey Day was a huge success. Students learned some new skills in hockey while they worked on teamwork and sportsmanship with some great professionals! The older student mentors were outstanding in their leadership. - pictures
Turkey Trot -The Turkey Trot was a lot of fun. 3rd through 8th graders had to run two laps while K through 3rd graders had run one lap. However, a couple of Kindergarteners and 3rd Graders were unstoppable and decided to run a second lap. Thank you PTA and parents for your support with participation and snacks. - pictures
Pajama Day - Students had a blast coming to school in their pajamas! Student council sponsored the event to raise money to purchase flowers for outside the school. - pictures
