About German Club

The AHS German Club allows current and former students, along with those who are just interested in the German culture, to get together and learn more about the countries where German is spoken and the people who speak that language. Activities include dining at German restaurants in the area, attending plays and concerts, watching films, competing at the state German festival in spring and --everybody's favorite -- the annual trip to Oktoberfest in Helen Georgia. We bring the party!


New for 2019-2020

AHS participated in an exchange with the Regine-Hildebrandt-Gesamtschule in Birkenwerder, Germany (near Berlin) as part of the German-American Partnership Program. During the month of September, 20 Berliners stayed in the homes of AHS students and attended our school and got to know our customs and community.  A group of 15 had planned to go to Berlin on the second part of the exchange, but unfortunately, the trip was cancelled due to the CoViD-19 pandemic.  The group hopes to make up the trip in summer 2021.
 
Planning for a second round of the GAPP exchange will begin during the 2020-2021 school year.  Participants will be sought to host a group coming from Berlin in September 2021 and travel to Berlin in May 2022.  Talk to Herr Brown if you are interested:  kbrown@alcoaschools.net
