On Monday, Aug. 30, our mixed-grade elementary school class started the 2021-2022 school year with a small but beautiful celebration. Under the motto "Glad you're here!" our four new first graders were cheerfully greeted and warmly welcomed into the class community. Older children volunteered to act as mentors for the newcomers and helped them familiarize themselves with new procedures and the learning environment during the first few days.

According to the custom of our school, a tree was planted by the parents - an oak. It symbolizes the elemental force of life and stands for strength and courage.

We wish all children the strength to follow their interests and not to be dissuaded from them, and the courage to face more difficult situations and not to give up.

Be like a real detective
Self-confident and quite cunning
Get to the bottom of everything
Just remember every find
That's how things run smoothly at school.
(Melanie-Luise Braun)
