MISI Hungarian School - 2017 Fall Semester Registration

MISI Hungarian School Registration

The classes are designed to provide the children the opportunity to succeed to read and write in Hungarian, with particular emphasis on reading and conversation. Our position is that by acquiring an ability to read in Hungarian the student is provided an indirect means of continued proficiency in the language, and that through reading they might learn about and develop an interest in the Hungarian culture.

In light of these developments, we have begun to organize the language classes.

We are hopeful that the children and the parents will find the Hungarian lessons useful. We will do our best to give the children a foundation in the Hungarian language that they will be able to use later. It is also our hope that the successful implementation of this two-course series will provide a foundation for the continuation of a Hungarian school. It is our hope that the children will acquire a structural and thematic approach to the Hungarian language, in reading and writing through these classes, but that they also  arouse an interest in a continued understanding and appreciation of Hungarian culture.

May 21, 2017

Read report in pdf form

Dear MISI Parents,

    It hasn't been that long that we wrapped the MISI Hungarian School 2016-17 school year. It is hard to believe that we have just completed our third year of operation. Besides the eight 90 minute sessions that comprised each semester, we offered a number of other activities for the children and their families.

  • Tanchaz dance workshop and party with Hungarian visiting artists
  • Visiting Hungarian musicians talk about folk music to the Nagymokus class
  • Dezso Acs demonstrating to the students how grape pressing is accomplished during our harvest unit. The children were able to try out the miniature press and sample the results.
  • Agnes and Laszlo Fulop spoke with the Nagymokus class about the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and their personal part in the events.
  • The children presented a folk play to the MN Hungarians community during the fall dinner.
  • The children celebrated Farsang and decorated masks, wore costumes and did some folk dancing.
  • The children participated in the 1848 commemoration with verses and singing.
  • Easter was celebrated with an egg hunt outside.
  • In December, we celebrated Mikulas Nap with the children.
  • The children made cards that they decorated and shared with a Hungarian weekend school in Germany.
  • The children received cards made by a Hungarian weekend school in Ireland.
  • A few of our students took part in an on-line recitation competition. This was also open to all children in our community. Participants were: Sebastian Kiss, Nori Varga, Zsofi Varga and Katica Owen.
  • There was also a drawing contest and a number of our students, Daniel Fox, Kira Koerner and Sophie Koerner took part.
  • There was an Easter camp held in Hungary (organized by the Rákóczi Szövetség) that a number of children from our Hungarian community attended including children from MISI.
  • And, of course, our Mother's Day celebration that also capped the end of the school year.
