The Hugo/Dodson Family has been at GISB for ten years. Alec is actively engaged as Treasurer of the school’s Board and the children are involved with student council, peer tutoring, and athletic activities at and outside of school. Both parents, Anna and Alec, are native English speakers, and are proud of their fully-bilingual children. Last summer the kids led the way when the family traveled together for the first time to Germany.
Meet Our Families
The Pappert/Bagehorn Family has been at GISB since 2012. They particularly enjoy the individual attention their child receives and the cooperative, supportive learning environment. Ulrike, who attended international schools around the world herself, treasures the school’s multiculturalism. As co-chair of the Parents’ Association, she creates an inclusive environment among the merry band of parents who coordinate school community and fundraising events.
The Grigsby/Gidionsen family has been at GISB since 2013. Skadi is German, Taran is American, and both are committed to an outstanding educational experience for 7-year-old Felix. Skadi and Taran love listening to their son joyfully talk about his day at school. Whether bursting with his experience building race cars from recycled materials or recounting his after school adventures during the annual Ski Week, Felix’s infectious enthusiasm mirrors the whole family’s engaged participation.
