About the Event

Die Narren kommen!

Fasching / Karneval / Fastnacht

Party at the German School 

Feb 9, 2024

Time depends on the class. See schedule below.


Helau! Alaaf! Hoi, hoi, hoi!

Karneval is a tradition celebrated in February in many regions of Germany. Our students will celebrate Karneval on Feb. 9th, 2024 in the hallways of the school and their classrooms.  We will enjoy some Music, Schunkeln, and bring the hallways alive with a fun Polonaise. 

Please send your child in a school-appropriate costume; nothing fancy, last year's Halloween costume will do. Anything resembling a weapon (gun, sword, knife, stick, etc.) should be left at home. 

During the celebration in the classrooms, students will enjoy a traditional pretzel, juice, water, and some fun games! 

Please note:

We are currently working on finding a way to let the parents join in on the fun, and celebrate Karneval with us. Our new location at Warrenville Campus offers many new opportunities and some new challenges compared to our previous location. The event planning is currently still ongoing. 

We will update this description here with further details as soon as they become known. Please revisit this page when the event date in February is drawing closer! 

School ends at 6:30pm!

Watch for more information from your student's teacher.
