PLEASE WELCOME: Please welcome 19 German students and 2 teachers from the Max Brauer Schule in Hamburg, Germany. They arrived on Sunday night and they’ll have their first day of school on Monday, September 17. Students will be in Indianapolis until October 2 as part of the German-American Partnership Program. The exchange between the two schools is in its 21st year! The students will initially be shadowing their host family partners and will then have a choice of classes beginning Friday, September 21.  North Central students visited our partner school in Hamburg for three weeks this past June and traveled to the capital city of Berlin for four days.  Our students had a wonderful time with their host families and got to know the language, culture, and people of Germany much better. Be sure to say “Guten Tag” to our guests. Thanks in advance for your hospitality!
