If you have pictures from the trip and would like to see them added to the DVD, please get me a CD ASAP. Thanks! - Megowan
p.s. Don't just give me all your pictures, choose the best ones...
CHS kids were in the castles...
...and the silver mines that paid for them!
For some strange reason about half the Cross Country team happens to also be signed up for German this year... Here they are in action.
At the starting line... (Bonus words: "Auf die PlÃ¤tze, fertig, los!")
Our group plus one little one...
Guess who the Germans are...
Loading the Rocket
Before the Rocket ride...
The Discovery was a two hour trip outside the bay. Some students saw five whales
Herr Carlberg is scheduled to summit Mt. Hood, Oregon's highest mountain, early in June. This is a picture of his climbing partner... Wish him luck.
Ich bin gerade aus Deutschland zurÃ¼ckgekommen und habe ein paar super Bilder gemacht... After looking at the pictures, write down five things that are similar to life in Oregon and five things that are different. Look for details!
Water Bridge in Germany... Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long.......now this is engineering!
This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg, near Berlin. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.
If you want to see some great pictures of Germany, just click HERE. It will open in a new window and when you are done, just close it. Enjoy! I thought I should post a picture of Sophie that is recent. She was a little two pound thing in the beginning but she is slowly catching up and now weighs close to 15lbs. She's cute too...
Incumbent Gerhard SchrÃ¶der (SPD) is running against Angela Merkel (CDU) today in the equivalent of the "presidential election" in Germany. Germany's leader is neither a president nor a prime minister but rather a Kanzler (chancellor).
Wahlkampf in Deutschland (extra credit if you can translate the slogans).
Can you figure out why many German toilets have two buttons? The obvious answer is not enough, tell me why.

- Exchange Info and Updates
You need to stay in touch, email and come by the room often if you want to have the latest information regarding the exchange. We have nearly 30 kids involved plus 21 Germans. This is going to be an amazing year to travel. So don't forget to swing by and make sure you know what is going on. I will try to always email out the recent information but seeing me in person is the best way to "stay in the loop" during the busy months ahead. - MEGOWAN
- Welcome to German
Ich bin froh wieder angefangen zu haben. If you are new, please spend some time introducing yourself to me before or after class. I really want to get to know all the new freshmen, transfers and exchange students right away. I hope the trimester is off to a great start for each of you and that you will have a lot of success this year! - Herr Megowan
- 2008 Trip to Germany
We will be taking a group to Germany during the summer of 2008. It is still too early to apply but it is never too early to think about saving up some money, practice your German and talking to your parents. Danke! - Megowan
- German Exchange
The 2008 Exchange will be great but I can only take a limited number of students so if you are interested be sure to let me, Mr. Megowan, know on the first day of the next school year.
On another note... the Exchange website is down for "repairs" but will be up again before summer! - Herr Megowan
