March Principal's Message
The month of February seems to have flown by so quickly. I hope that everyone had a great Family Day weekend. February was a short and exciting month for our school. We celebrated the Lunar New Year on February 13th with a Dragon and Lion dance to bring in the year of the Dog. We had an afternoon of festivities for all students and an evening program to finish off the day of celebration. We had over 400 guests in attendance for our performance.
We’d like to thank all the parents who volunteered their time to help make the day so successful. We had over 40 volunteers supporting our school learning community. We also thank the numerous students for their energy and support. The student planning committee led by Katie Q and Tia W did a fantastic job planning for our celebration.
Thank you to our staff members who devoted their time into ensuring another successful Lunar New Year celebration. The following teachers were on the planning committee headed by Ms. Angela Chen: Ms. Zhao, Ms. Ly, Miss Nguyen, Dr. Ma, Mr. Chang, Miss Ma, Ms. Cao, Ms. Lu and Ms. Fenwick.
I hope that families will enjoy the upcoming spring break. Thank you for all of the ongoing support of our school.
Ms. Bea Ko, Principal
