As the corona virus spreads itself through our society during the winter season, our school community is no exception. Many families have met with the challenges of COVID quarantine psychologically as well as practically.
The PA collaborated with the mindfulness coach, Christelle Pillot, in December last year to prepare a document to support families going through COVID quarantine after family members being tested positive.
The resulting document can be accessed here: "How to prepare your COVID quarantine in 12 points".
Special thanks to the families who participated in the workshops to share their quarantine experiences and to Christelle, who donated her time to work on this document.
We hope you will find some of the ideas and suggestions in the document useful. If you need to find further support or to share your experience, please feel free to use the COVID-19 Group in the ESF Classlist.
We wish you lots of positive energies in getting through yet another COVID winter!

"Christmas in a Shoebox" charitable event
Weihnachtspäckchen für Kinder in Not
Every year our school participates in the “Christmas in a Shoebox" charitable event (Weihnachtspäckchen für Kinder in Not). The goal of this campaign is to collect Christmas gifts for children in need who otherwise wouldn’t get any presents at all. The organization Kinderzukunft collects the parcels to be distributed to the beneficiaries.
Last year we collected 905 gifts and this year we would like to make it to 1000. That would mean one thousand children would receive a present this year thanks to ESF.
We believe, together we can make 1000 children smile this Christmas.
Kinderzukunft is an established organization in Germany and it supports around 70,000 children in need in countries such as Romania, Bosnia Herzegovina, and the Ukraine. The packages are distributed to orphanages, hospitals, schools, and poor areas. For some of these children, this present will be the only one they receive for Christmas.

Created two years ago at the ESF on the initiative of parents, we imagined this activity as a way to create a dynamic between the practice of a sport activity and a friendly space open to parents of all ages and all language sections.
We will meet on Tuesdays and/or Fridays at 9:00 am in the Nidda Parc, a few steps from the school. Classes will be held in German and French, but English speakers are also welcome.
The activity is supervised by a private coach and is at the expense of the participants (not subsidized by the PA).
A medical form must be filled out before the activity starts.
For more information on this activity, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
