German Club Hosts a Range of Traditional Festivities

Posted on November 21, 2016 by


The German Club at Fleetwood focuses primarily on the culture of German-speaking countries and has a wide variety of activities planned for the 2016-2017 school year. Many of the students involved are high school students, but German teacher Mrs. Christine Moll was generous enough to expand this opportunity to her middle school students. There are many fun activities planned for this year. The group meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 3:15 to 4:00. Each meeting is no longer than 45 minutes. Many events include making German foods and making different German crafts.

The next activity for the club is on Tuesday, 15 November. From 6:00 to 10:00, participants are going to visit the Reading Liederkranz. On 1 November through 1 December, students are selling Advent Calendars as well. The calendars count down the days until Christmas. As each day passes, students open up a little door, and hidden in there is a little piece of rich German milk chocolate.

The club’s favorite activity over the years has been Spaghetti Eis. The German word eis is pronounced as ice, and it perfectly describes what kind of spaghetti it makes. It’s ice cream! They press vanilla ice cream through a Spätzle press to make it look like noodles. Who wouldn’t want to eat spaghetti ice cream?

If you or a friend is interested in joining this awesome and interactive club, contact Frau Moll in room 14!
