Our Austrian Partner School (Graz International Bilingual School), GIBS, is in Minneapolis for a week and will be shadowing South Students April 18, 21, and 22 of this week.  Students each have a set schedule and shadow guide, and will be identifiable by their South High Visitor's ID.  Austrian teachers, Dr. Martina Pfistermueller-Czar and Mr. Florian Lassnig, will be collaborating with Mr French, teaching classes or observing instruction in other rooms. All students are assigned a shadow guide 


In conjunction with this visit, there will be several co-curricular field trips taking place. This cultural exchange is an invaluable opportunity for the students to practice language skills and expand their world views.
