The Parents’ Association supports the family-life balance of our members by offering services like Childminding, Afternoon Activities, Transport and Holiday Camps. We represent the voice of all ESF Parents in a variety of committees and support the school on everything that happens outside the classroom and contributes to the school community.

Greetings, you monsters, witches and ghosts!
It is time again, on Friday, November 11, 2016: The European School Parents' Association invites you from the classes P2 to P5 to celebrate Halloween! Because of the limited capacity and because we know from experience that many of the P1 children are too young, we have decided with the school directors to have this party from P2 and up only.
We have a great offer of games and activities and a special surprise show for you. Please come in costume!
We will again party in the Modular Building. Please register online until November 10. No registrations are possible when the maximum number is reached and only registered children will be admitted. If your registered child cannot participate be so kind to let us know so other children get the opportunity.
Do not come without a registration! We do not want to send home sad children. Thank you!
For children who are registered with Childminding you can, if necessary, extend the Childminding time until 18:00h and they will - after dressing up - be brought directly to the party. Please note that on the registration form and inform Childminding as well: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is mandatory, please use the links below and bring the printed registration confirmation to the party:
Where: Sports room and canteen in the new Modular Building. Access via Gate M (footpath to Nordwestzentrum next to the Secondary building), parking possible on the school parking lot until 20:00h
When: 18:00h (entry and registration from 17:30h, pay in cash)
Entry: €5.00 for children of PA members, €10.00 for everybody else, but ESF students only! Please bring change to speed things up!
The party will take place without parents. There will be enough Childminding staff.
Support by parents required für buffet/distribution of drinks, registration, supervision, and especially the tedious cleanup: Please contact email@example.com by October 23 noting the time slot when you are available. Info and schedule will be sent via email.
We will take care of “hot dinner” and drinks, but we ask all parents to donate cakes and snacks. Thank you! Please bring to registration in the evening or during the day to the secondary canteen – Ms. Gothe or her team.
The Parents' Assoctiation's Halloween Team is looking forward to see you!
Insa Jung, Klaudia Mager and Felix Walderdorff

as announced in the last PA Newsletter's article “Upcoming Talks”, these last months we have been working on the proposal to arrange an annual series of talks on school-related issues. We are glad to inform you that the first appointment with an expert advisor is coming soon.
The topic of the talk is “Social Media Use” and will be held by Dr. Patricia Napiorkowski Lubbe. The same topic will be delivered at school, for the benefit of some secondary school classes.
Here follows the complete program.
We look forward to seeing you at the forthcoming event

Our school bus service is growing and the capacity of our morning buses overbooked from October onwards. That is why the PA has decided to start a new Bus Line S (South, or Sachenhausen?) from next Tuesday, 4 October. This is valid for the morning buses only.
The following stops will be served by the new bus line:
|07:25 h||Former Line A||01 – Südfriedhof West||Darmstädter Landstraße|
|07:30 h||Former Line A||02 – Darmstädter Landstraße Mitte||Darmstädter Landstraße|
|07:35 h||Former Line C||03 – Wasserweg||Wasserweg|
|07:40 h||Former Line O||04 – European Central Bank – Visitors Parking||Sonnemannstraße|
As you can see the departure times are mostly unchanged with the exception of the departure from the ECB which will be 15 minutes later than previously. This is made possible because the bus no longer needs to pick up children on the way from the ECB to the school. The parents of children using the stops have been informed.
I hope and expect that everything will run smoothly. Our school bus provider, Urberacher Omnibusbetrieb, has the experience to run the new line without problems, and the school security as well as the teachers who pick up children in the morning are or will be informed.
All the best
PA Activities Coordinator

Summer holidays come to an end at the ESF next Monday. The nine-week break has been used for renovation and repair works as well as improvements of the infrastructure. Thus, students and teachers can enjoy a new surface on the sport field. Furthermore, the free-flow concept has been introduced at the canteen of the Secondary Cycle by putting in new seating, creating self-service facilities and offering one of the three choices as freshly prepared meal. Children in Pre-Primary and Primary 1 will benefit from newly installed air-conditioning in the South facing classrooms of the Modular Building.
