German International School New York's community isn't limited to our students and faculty: GISNY parents and alumni play an essential role in making GISNY the vibrant, engaged, and diverse school that it is.  
While we come from many different countries and cultures and collectively speak more than 10 native languages at home, we enjoy coming together at breakfasts, art fairs, flea markets, sports days, field trips, class parties, career days, holiday celebrations and so much more.  But these events don't organize themselves; they happen thanks to the creativity and dedication of our parent volunteers.  
We encourage everyone to find a way to get involved and stay connected with GISNY.  Whether it's accompanying your child's class on a field trip to a nature center, becoming a Parents' Association representative, or organizing the annual Holiday Bazaar, your help is welcomed and appreciated!
Would you like to help but aren't sure where to start?  Please email the president of our Parents' Association at for information on open volunteer opportunities.
