Writing Contest on 3/7: Will take place during language class time. Parents, please be on standby to upload your child(ren)’s writings. Specific details will be e-mailed to parents. See attachments 2 for details.

Word Recognition Contest on 3/28: PCLS will be offering our first-ever words recognition contest this year via Zoom. All students from grades 1 through 10 in both traditional and CSL tracks are invited to participate. To prepare for this contest, students will review the words learned this and the last school year. It will be a great way to reinforce the learning of Chinese characters and vocabulary while getting students into the habit of reviewing with flashcards on a regular basis. See attachments 3 and 4 for details. Please register for this contest via google form here.
