ASIAN CELEBRATION 2017 IS THIS WEEKEND!! Students from our class have been invited to participate in the Bhangra dance performances during the 2017 Asian celebration. This amazing event is held at the Lane Events Center on Saturday and Sunday, February 18 and 19. Admission is free for kids and $6.00 a day for adults but families of children that participate will receive one free adult admission for both days of the festival! Please let me know if your student will participate and I’ll be sure your name is on the free admission list. The dance they have been practicing is wonderfully energetic. Our kids are scheduled to dance on Sunday at 4:30. Please arrive by 4:00 and check in with Azusa or me behind the main stage when you arrive. Bhangra dance instructor, SatPavan encourages girls to wear a colorful outfit-skirt or pants. Boys are asked to wear jeans and a plain, light colored shirt. We’ll have a colorful sash and headband for them to wear. Hope you and your student can attend! Visit this website for more information: http://asiancelebration.org

GEOGRAPHY: The students have been studying about Africa; it’s countries, flags, landmarks and biomes. This week, thanks to artist Helen Liu, they will create African-style masks. Today we learned about the importance of preserving the native people’s culture through masks and ceremonial dancing. Ask your student to describe types of African masks. If you have books or other materials that support our studies, please consider sharing with the classroom.

Thanks for sharing your kind and caring children.
