Seventeen high school students and their two teachers from Greven, Germany are currently visiting DeForest Area High School. According to Lisa Manicke, DAHS German Teacher, “The program is sponsored by GAPP (German American Partnership Program), and is a short-term exchange program subsidized by the German and American governments and supported by the Goethe Institut.” German students are staying with DAHS students and their families, attending classes, and seeing the sites of the DeForest area (and a little bit of Wisconsin) from October 3rd until the 17th.
On Friday, October 10, several of the German students visited with students at Eagle Point and Windsor Elementary Schools.
DeForest Area High School students also traveled to Germany, June 14-July 5. Every other year, Manicke takes students from DeForest to their partner school in Greven, Germany, where they also live with host families and attend school for three weeks.
