School supplies have been stocked on the store shelves, signaling summer is coming to a close. The 2016-2017 Department of Defense Educational Activity (DODEA) school year is ramping up to begin at the end of August. If you’re new to the area, or have a student switching to a different school, we’ve compiled a list of new student/family orientations throughout the DODEA-Europe districts. Unless otherwise stated, the first day of school for grades 1-12 is Monday, August 29.
