新年快樂!  Happy New Year!  I hope everyone has had a very pleasant and restful holiday season.

We will just have 4 weeks to rehearse for our Chinese New Year Celebration which is 2/3/2019 at Montgomery High School.  Please pay attention to the emails sent by your teachers or room parents regarding the rehearsal plan and performance details.

We would greatly appreciate donations (value of $20 and above) of Raffle Prizes for the raffle during our New year’s festivities.  More prizes, more fun!!  All the donations go to our raffle which helps as a fundraiser for the school.  Please drop off the items to Sylvia or Sophia in the cafeteria until 1/13/2019.  We will also provide donation receipt for your tax filing purpose.
