Yes, everything is slightly different these days and yes, we can’t meet in big groups at school. So what? We won’t be defeated and the PTO has come up with some ideas on how we can still have a fun time together. Here is what is coming up:
Virtual Coffee Morning, Friday, September 11 at 9:30 (ZOOM)
A great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, ask questions, chat and enjoy a relaxed coffee or tea together. Staff and parents, everyone is welcome to join. This event is free.
We are planning to have these virtual coffee mornings once a month. If there is interest, we can also arrange to talk about specific topics that could be school-related or not.
Please sign up on this Wejoinin sheet so that we can send the Zoom call link to you.
Erlangen City Tour, Wednesday, September 16 at 8:45 (Meeting at school)
This is one of the rare occasions where we can meet up in person because this is a walk outside. We will, of course, keep our distance to each other and we won’t go inside anywhere. The meeting point is outside the FIS main entrance and we will do a round tour and come back to the FIS. Staff and parents, everyone is welcome to join. This event is free.
We will show you the neighborhood of the FIS and walk into town, pointing out where you find shops, libraries, restaurants, etc. and try to answer as many questions as possible. It’s always a pleasant and fun time and even if you have been living in Erlangen for some time, you might find out something new. The walk is approx. 2 hours.
Please sign up here so that we know who to expect on the day.
Virtual Wine tasting, October 16 at 19:30 (ZOOM)
This is a FIS first, and we promise to make it an entertaining night! In cooperation with wine experts and merchants ‘Passion & Wine’ we are offering a night of wine tasting in the comfort of your own home. Staff and parents, everyone is welcome to join.
For EUR 55 per household, you will be sent 3 bottles of wine as well as instructions to prepare for the evening and a 1.5 to 2 hours guided wine tasting with two expert sommeliers. On the night we all come together in a ZOOM call and the experts take it from there. You will learn about wine facts but the evening is mainly meant to be fun. So come and join us. Spaces are limited. Look out for more information on the FIS Facebook page and Slack.
Please sign up here and for further instructions.
We are constantly looking into new ways to bring the FIS community together and rest assured, more events will follow! If you have any ideas or like to get involved please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Staff or parents, everyone is welcome. We will continue to publish upcoming events in the FIS Newsletter as well as Slack and FIS Social Media. If you are not signed up to Slack yet, please follow this link.
