German Club was designed to be a social as well as a civic organization.
See recent pictures on our Facebook page: The Big Walnut German Program
Some of the Social Activities:
~Oktoberfest: an in class celebration during the month of October. Students prepare German and Austrian desserts and German Club furnished Brats and Sauerkraut
~Holiday party/gift exchange. We have a goofy gift exchange in the Innovation Center with snacks, games and singing!
~ Film Nights: 3-4 times a year we clear out the class room in the evening, order pizza and watch a movies in German!
~Club T-Shirt. German officers get a discount on the T-Shirts which is designed by a German Club Member.
~Tasting Day: Around Valentines we have this event in class. Students get to taste chocolates, breads, cheeses, cookies, cakes, coffee and tea from German speaking countries. (What ever I can find locally!)
~Games and fun afternoons. A few times a year, we will meet in the IC after school to play board games, do puzzles etc.
~Awards Day: During class on this day, students receive awards for their participation and achievement regarding different aspects of the German Program. This year, students will also be creating their final exam T-Shirt. They will be able to 'decorate' a T-shirt and use it on their final exam.
~Caroling in local neighborhood
~Classes compete to collect as many items as possible for Friends Who Share, our local food pantry in Sunbury.
~Scholarship to students traveling overseas during the summer.
