Though already open for a year, this event was a celebration of many reasons:
* the move into our first building at 650 W. International Airport Road
* the official recognition of Rilke Schule by the Federal Republic of Germany with a presentation of a "big check" for €15,000
* and the hand-over of the state-of-the-art playground structure from the parents to the school *a celebration of our principal, teachers, staff, and parents for being committed and dedicated to our school thoroughout the first spirited year.
* and last but not least, the celebration of "mission accomplished", the completion of the founding years that began in March 2006.
Rilke Schule is presented with a big check in the amount of €15,000 in support of the German program at the school. Petra Nickerson holds Gov. Palin's proclamation that declares Oct. 1, 2008 Rilke Schule Grand Opening Day.
