Messages from the Culture Director, Ya-ping Su:

Annual Culture Class open house will take place on April 14. This is a great opportunity for your child(ren) to try out other culture classes and pick their culture class selection for next school year.

We are currently planning culture class offerings for 2019-2020 school year and NEED YOUR HELP to enrich our culture classes.  If you are interested in teaching any culture class, please email culture@pcls.org or stop by Admin area to discuss with us. If you can’t take the teaching position for the entire school year, but can offer some weeks or months, that would work too.
