OBS got into the giving spirit again with our annual Christmas in a Box Children's Advent program. Working with Hilfswerk Osteuropa Mission, OBS families gave generously to support Osteuropa and give gifts for children in Eastern Europe who are less fortunate and/ or who are orphaned. The hundreds of gifts accumulated under the tree in the school entrance over the last two weeks. Fifth Graders, Kay, Josephine and Marilou were excused from class to help this morning move the gifts to the truck, together with PA's Sally, Susanne and Raymond, plus OBS Staffers, Yasmin and Daniel. "It's so wonderful to see all the beautifully wrapped gifts going to help children so far away and to see how much OBS gives back!", says Yasmin. Our OBS presents will be trucked to Serbia, Hungary and Ukraine. A BIG THANK YOU goes out to everyone at OBS who donated a gift for Christmas in a Box!! Thank you for your support and generosity.
Soon after the truck of gifts pulled away, Sally Steptoe and Susanne Rutsch, from the Parent Association, got working on decorating the 4m+ OBS Weihnachtsbaum!
