02/2021   Thank you all so much for participating so numerous in our survey about the project of Haus 5 FG (65,5% participation rate!). Thereby the results are very significant.   Haus-5-Umfrage-Survey-Report   As you can see from the complete results, they are also very clear. In evidence are two major issues: security and age of the pupils. Also your concerns about the communication will be taken into account and addressed.   These concerns were brought to all the Stakeholders involved - ESM, EPO, IKG and BMBF in a high-level meeting held on Friday 29.01.2021.   We will follow the development of this project very closely and inform you further....

12/2020   Thanks to the availability of office space in the ESM Primary School in Fasangarten, thanks to the generous approval of the school management, and also in view of the uncertain future of the EPO premises, we decided to move our offices to ESM Fasangarten. We will occupy two nice little and comfortable offices on the ground floor of Haus 3. We thank again the school for this possibility.   The move is planned for the 9th of December 2020.   This move brings various advantages for us. The main advantage is that we will be "on the spot", to better support all the kids and our service partners, and also to improve our collaboration with the school.   Our new postal address is: Elternvereinigung der Europäischen Schule München e.V. Auguste-Kent-Platz 2 81549 München   Please note our updated phone numbers (office hours stay Mo to Fri, 9:00 – 12:00): 089 6281 64311 0176 2171 9798   You can always reach as at our usual e-mail...

  10/2020 Herewith I invite you to our general assembly on the 3rd of November 2020. The assembly will be held online with a dedicated meeting-software. Further information with respect to this will follow. Here you can find the draft agenda (only in German). EV-ESM_General_Assembly_2020 The pandemic has also hit our parents’ association. We and our service-partners had to rapidly adapt at the situation with always changing procedures and instructions from the medical authorities, the Bavarian ministry and the school. This brought our organizational capabilities to its limits. As you know, the school start this year was far from perfect, and we regret this very much. But I can assure you, that all our board members and all our staff, together with the school and with our service partners, did and still do their best to find a solution to every problem. I would like to thank here again the school and our service partners for their good...

09/2020   ASSOCIATION   Finally, also our newsletter for the new school year! We apologize for not being able to send it earlier. The school management decided which education model should finally be implemented only a few days before school start. Also, the Bavarian authorities did not really help us in this situation. This caused the necessity to rapidly modify/adapt all our services. Notwithstanding some problems, we are now on the good run and managed to start all of them. You have already received information directly from our service partners. Below  are some further details.   New marking system We inform you here about an initiative of parents of the ES Brussels who plan to file a complaint in Germany (Normenkontrollantrag) till November 2020 against the new marking system in the ES. A teleconference by parents representatives of the ES Brussels is planned for Monday, September 7th from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.. Interested parents can contact directly Mrs. Renate...

  05/2020 Information about the Partial Opening of ESM   Transport As the concerned parents have already been informed separately, the school buses for primary school classes P1 and P5 are being organized. The school buses will also be available for the planned opening of the school for P2, P3 and P4. You will receive information about this in a timely manner. Unfortunately, kindergarten children are not allowed in the school buses at the moment because we cannot guarantee the requirement of travelling with their siblings. All shuttle buses between ESM and EPO remain canceled as no garderie services are allowed at the moment.   Garderie Due to the precaution not to mix the pupils, the after school care is cancelled until further notice. Regarding the final bill, RUF has now decided not to charge the parents for June. This is a compensation for the services not provided by RUF as from mid-March to June. RUF will continue to integrate the salary...

As you read in the message from ESM Director Anton Hrovath on March 13th, 2020, the European School Munich stays closed until then. Extra-curricular Activities The school closure also applies to our entire offer of extra-curricular activities. It is not yet clear if the courses continue as of April 20th, 2020.
