Boys Soccer

The boys soccer team moto is "Good Person, good student, good player" in that order.

The boys soccer needs parental support on game days and certainly during the tournament May 18-21.  I hope that we will have a JV team and will hear in the next 12-24 hours if that will happen.  We will have a very strong team this year and I'm looking forward to competing against the big schools.

Reminders:

1. Every training day, players need four layers of clothing on their upper bodies:

              1. T-Shirt

              2. Long sleeve under armor

              3. Sweatshirt

              4. Rain shell

2. Every player needs one BLACK, long sleeve under armor AND one WHITE long sleeve under armor.  These are for game days to be worn under the uniform.

3. Bring water to training and DON'T SHARE WATER BOTTLES!!!!  COVID-19 may be just a fear right now, but mononucleosis is real and has ALWAYS been in our community.

4. Playing on injuries is a very bad idea.  If your athlete has an injury, I must know about it.

Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team.

The robot kit is reusable from year to year and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming. Teams design and build robots, raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach to earn specific awards. Participants are eligible to apply for $80M+ in college scholarships.

Honors Music Festival

The Honors Music program offers 68 student instrumentalists and 80 vocalists the opportunity to gather together for 5 days to study a variety of band and choral music. After a period of intensive rehearsals conducted by two of America's finest conductors, the students present a concert with a combined band and choral finale. The concert is performed in the Wiesbaden area. The large audience consists of Americans and Germans from the local communities. Students apply through their local high school by submitting a recorded audition. A committee composed of music teachers from DoDEA-Europe schools selects participants.   

International Student Council

These students select their own officers, who then represent their respective constituencies. The major focus of this group is to provide special functions and activities for all the students from the combined international school secondary population.Students enjoy such activities as:volleyball games, dances, and field trips.
