This Week (8 of 30)

The Halloween Festivity for this week was a great success! There were 12 parent volunteers dressed in traditional clothing from different Chinese dynasties, regions, and roles. The children had a chance to admire and learn about the great textile culture passed down from thousands of years ago. The parent volunteers also had a great time putting on something they never thought they could! It is a wonderful experience for all. We also would like to thank the concession stand for giving out treats every Halloween, just to see the children smile! Happy Halloween!
