PCLS Newsletter 12/2 – Speech Contest Part I

Dear Parents/Guardians/Teachers:

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time with family and friends!

This Sunday, we will distribute PCLS 2018-2019 Directory to our families and teachers.  Special thanks to Zoe Chen for her dedication to design our beautiful directory.  Each family will receive only ONE directory so one of your children will receive directory in his/her language class.

There is a Financial Workshop by AIG Financial Network, Carol Lee MBA, CLU. 3:30-4:30 in Room 231.   She will talk about Planning for family financial security – How do families protect assets from creditors or in the event of critical, chronic or terminal illness.  You will learn very useful information from this workshop.

We are gearing up for preparations for Chinese New Year! We would greatly appreciate donations (value of $20 and above) of Raffle Prizes for the raffle during our New year’s festivities.  All the donations go to our raffle which helps as a fundraiser for the school. We will be accepting the donations starting this Sunday until 1/13/19.  Please drop off the items to either Sylvia or Sophia in the cafeteria.
