Good News! We got approval to go to Eugene in order to attend the Madsen concert on November 14, 2011 (Monday). There will be no charge for the bus or for the concert (thanks to the generous support of the Goethe Institute and Grants Pass High School), but students need to bring food or money for food. The bad news is that I can only take one bus and therefore access is limited. German 3 and 4 students get first priority, and then German 2 students are admitted on a "first-come-first-serve" basis. I reserve the right to exclude students based on their in-class behavior. Permission slips are on their way, but if German 2 students get their parents to send me an email that says they have permission to attend, I can reserve a spot for them (provided I still have space). Here is the link to familiarize yourself with some of their songs:www.stepintogerman.org . More links will follow.
