- 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
