Was ist eine Schultüte?

The Schultüte (school cone) is a German tradition. On the first day of elementary school (in Germany that means entering first grade), students receive this special present -usually from their parents. It will then be part of your “first day of school picture” and forever be remembered. It’s a long cone that is filled with goodies and closed with a bow on top, also known to some as “Zuckertüte” (yes, that translates to sugar bag…). GSM has adapted this tradition and each student receives a Schultüte from their teacher on the first day. Since elementary school starts with Kindergarten in the US, we have tweaked the tradition a tiny bit, so that no matter what year you are joining GSM you will receive your very own “Schultüte”.
