Spring PoemsHeinrich Seidel (1842-1906) - April
    April! April!
    Der weiß nicht, was er will.
    Bald lacht der Himmel klar und rein,
    Bald schaun die Wolken düster drein,
    Bald Regen und bald Sonnenschein!

    Eduard Mörike (1805-1875) - Er ist's
    Frühling läßt sein blaues Band
    wieder flattern durch die Lüfte
    süße wohlbekannte Düfte
    streifen ahnungsvoll das Land

    • 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
