Looking forward to seeing you there.
Your PTA Team including Julia
Yes .... it's time again for PTA's last Bake Sale of this year.
Spring is in the air..... So lets unlock those creating and baking skills of yours and have a last fantastic Bake Sale on Wednesday 14th. We call on you to help us provide baked goods of all kinds (or other special treats) to make this day a SPRINGtacular event with delicious donations.
If you are planning to bake something, please bring your items to the Atrium of House 2 on the morning of the sale or drop it at the Blue Box. Please remember to label your plates (there are still some plates, etc. left from the last Bake Sale which will be there for you). You can be sure the kids will enjoy your delicious treats!
On Wednesday 14th please make sure your children have some money so they can enjoy the delicious treats. And if you are available it would be wonderful if you could help us selling the baked goods during school time to the kids! Follow the link and choose times that will work for you. Please feel free to sign up for more than one shift. You do not have to register or create an account with signup.com. If you are unsure, please drop us a note and we can sign you up manually.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Two levels of German classes are planned to start at the second week of March, taught by an experienced teacher right on the BBIS campus, Katja Holtmann.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The BBIS Players is a great place to get to know other BBIS parents, with informal games such as Mah Jong, Bunco, and more!
If you have a favorite game, be sure to let us know, and you can host a game event as well!
Watch for events and sign up whenever it suits you, just be aware that some games do have limited space so please keep up to date with RSVPs so others interested have the chance to attend. Can't wait to see you at a new event soon!

You haven't revceived our latest newsletter? Maybe you should become a PTA member! :-)
Here you can read it - or simply re-read the newsletter online.
We have already announced it, 16 countries are involved so far in the SummerFest on 9th of June 2018 to set up their booth with their unique food, drinks and/or games…. not all are addressed yet.
For those who already know that they want to participate and plan to bring something from their home country, don’t forget to do so, maybe you will be at home during this February Break.
The rough plan looks like last year. And we definitely will try (like every year) to get the whole school involved in this event.
Therefore we need your help! If you have any ideas, suggestions or if you just want to participate as a volunteer at our biggest event of the year, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. We will send out an Email to all parents at BBIS for more detailed information soon.
First SummerFest Meeting: Tuesday, 20th Feb at 8.15 – 10 am in the PTA Lounge (House 4)
All past PTA groups have built up a well-functioning community.
It’s always a gift when former and experienced PTA members like Kerstin, Julia, Katharina and Ira take over leading PTA positions like for this year. And not to forget Konstanze, who is responsible to fill out a job (Communication) that is really visible to everyone.
Unfortunately, for professional and personal reasons they have said in advance that they will do so only for this year (except one – Kerstin).
We all think and hope, we have aroused your interest and are certain that among you are people who feel comfortable in one of the vacant positions:

Dine Around The World No 2 - three fantastic hosts, over 30 guests, delicious food, anough to drink, to talk and to laugh and a surprise for each party - quartet 'CONNECTION' jumped in and sang a few songs - what a great evening!
HUGE THANK YOU to our always up to date organizer Anja Köhler, our wonderful hosts Andra Hoermann, Lissetth Fitzgerald, Pam McGuinness and all their unique guests with their so tasty food from around the world!
About 20 parents attended a Coffee Morning to learn more about the Extended Essay (IBDP) and the Reflective Project (IBCP) that was organised from the IBDP/CP Parent Group and the Secondary School on January 25.
Don't miss the next date: March 8, "What are TOK and PPS", again at 8 am in the Cafeteria.
On February 3rd, we have planned our second wonderful "Dine Around the World" where parents host dinners at home.
How does it work? You register either as a dinner host in which case you are happy to welcome some BBIS guests in your home on February 3rd. All you have to do is offer your home, your hospitality and some non alcoholic drinks - and your guests will bring the food dishes, wine and drinks. A party consists of 8 - 14 people including you as the host.
Or you register as a guest. Don't hesitate to do so - even if you come on your own. You won't be able to choose the "table" as you will only receive this information shortly before the dinner is held. The organizers will put together suitable dinner groups and try to make sure that your way is as short as possible.
Please contact Anja Koehler or the PTA if you want to participate.
On January 25th the IBDP/CP Parent Group will have a Coffee Morning about the Extended Essay (DP)/The Reflective Project (CP). Feel free to join at 8 am in the Cafeteria.

This year at the primary School Concert on December 7th, we sold homemade cookies, coffee and tea. It was well received and we managed to raise over 300€. This will help us fund our PTA Grant programm. Thank you so much to Susi, Audrey, Andressa, Astrid, Hannah, Julia's mother-in-law and Antje from apetito for your lovely cookies and Weckmänner.
During the last weeks we met for a christmas-ish working lunch. We discussed topics like the Winter Bazaar, the Culture Rooms Day, the Summerfest, the grants and much more - and we had a lovely lunch, sponsored by Julia and Kerstin (thx for the delicious soup), in Julia's home. Thank you!
A great success was our traditional Winter Bazaar on November 28/29. What a great time we all had!
It’s such a joy to watch our little and not so little excited and supportive customers, how they choose and let wrap their secret presents!
Huge Thank You to our secret helpers - female AND male - for another successful community building event!
