Deutsche Schule Metro Detroit celebrates the Old Year with our “Deutschtag” and the New Year with the PASCH Award from the Federal Republic of



Troy - On January 7, 2012, Deutsche Schule Metro Detroit received the “PASCH - Schools: Partners for the Future” award from Consul General Onno Hückmann of the Federal Republic of Germany at Honory Consul Fred Hoffman’s office in downtown Detroit. This was an extremely proud day for our school. Thank you to Fred Hoffman for organizing this event. We would also like to thank our staff, volunteers, and especially the talented and highly-qualified German teachers at the Deutsche Schule Metro Detroit. 

The PASCH partner school initiative consists of a worldwide network of 1500 schools which share a common platform of the German language and culture.  PASCH operates in more than one hundred countries with the strong support of the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA), the Goethe-Institut (GI), the Educational Exchange Service of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany (PAD), and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).  It was a great tribute to our school to have earned this recognition and become a part of this global network. 

Our annual “Weihnachtsfeier” was also held at the Niles Center on December 5, 2011.  Each class performed a play or a skit for the parents.  “Bethlehem sucht den Superstar” was performed both at the Deutsche Schule Metro Detroit and at the Birmingham WinterMarkt in early December.  All of the performances were met with loud applause and cheers.  Sankt Nikolaus was greeted with many hugs as he entered the auditorium to hand out treats to our students.  The evening ended with pizza, salads, treats and holiday conversation among the parents and staff.

This year we combined the “Deutschtag” event with our “Weihnachtsfeier” and the school was honored by Fred Hoffman’s visit.  The Deutschtag event was sponsored by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA).  The parents were informed about the PASCH recognition and Fred Hoffman congratulated our school and educated everyone about this award.  At this time, many of our students were awarded gift cards by the ZfA for their participation in the program’s writing competition.  The topic was „Deutschland: Seine Regionen, seine Vielfalt“ .  Each student researched a specific German city or region, created a colorful and informative poster board and presented their project to the judges and parents.  We learned many fun facts about Germany, and it was a great opportunity for our students to strengthen their language and communication skills, as well as their knowledge of Germany. We thank the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA) for all of their support in 2011.

Please join us for Deutsche Schule Metro Detroit’s Annual Open House on Monday, January 30, 2012 from 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm at its Niles Center location in Troy, 201 W. Square Lake Road (19 Mile Road) just west of Livernois. We will have information on our German native and second language and German as a foreign language classes for children ages 1 and up.  We also can provide you with an overview of our German language classes for adults and corporate German language classes. You are welcome to stop by, tour our school and enjoy refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere at our Open House.

Our German language program is based on the Bavarian curriculum, and our German as a foreign language program follows the Common European Framework for languages. All of our teachers are highly-qualified, degreed, professional educators.  Please ask us about our various testing programs.
