Fasching (also known as Karneval) is a time of festivity and having fun. A time to laugh, be silly, and poke fun at politics, economics, and other regular rules. In Germany, particularly in the Rhineland area, the tradition can be traced to medieval times where many countries existed under harsh rules. Many towns dress up, host parades and elaborate floats. On February 22 at both of our campuses, we encourage kids to dress up (think Halloween) and the younger grades will have a parade around school at 11:45. We’ll offer donut holes and fruit for everyone to celebrate!
