Hello, Parents and Guardians of TMHS German Students!
My name is Brenda Bauske, and I am the TMHS German teacher. My students call me "Frau Bauske" ("Mrs. Bauske"). We've had a great couple of days in German class to start off our school year. I have been delighted to meet your student and look forward to working with you all and introducing you to the many opportunities available to German students at TMHS this year.
There are a few important matters I need to bring to your attention.
1) Supplies for class: please provide your student with a 3-ring binder (1 or 1 1/2 inch will suffice), a set of 5 dividers for the binder (students may use colored paper or post-it notes on the side of paper to create sections instead of buying dividers), loose-leaf paper for inside the binder, and pens/pencils by Monday, Aug. 26th.
2) Please subscribe to two of my pages on my teacher website
to receive class updates: first, my "Introduction" page
, and second, your student's class page
located via a link on the bottom of the "Introduction" page. Here is a link for my "Introduction" page (click on "subscribe" on the right side, return to the "Introduction" page, scroll down and select the appropriate class page, and click "subscribe" again, so you are subscribed to both): https://tmhs.tomballisd.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1243772&type=u&pREC_ID=1741300
3) There are many opportunities available to TMHS German students both in and outside the classroom this year. Students are encouraged to join German Club ("Deutschklub"), earn membership into the German Honor Society, participate in our field trips ("German Saturday" in November), volunteer at the Tomball German festivals (there are two yearly - one in December and one in March/April), compete in regional and state German contests in February, and even join me in traveling to Germany in the summer of 2021 (we'll start signing up for the trip this fall). More specific information will be coming to you once our busy first week is over.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not reply to this email but rather send me an email to email@example.com
or call and leave me a message at (281) 357-3230 ext. 1049
. I am happy to discuss them with you.
Beste Grüße (Best regards),
TMHS German Teacher
