ASIAN CELEBRATION: It’s that time again! SatPavan, our Bhangra dance teacher, has invited the students to perform during the annual Asian Celebration. This year’s Celebration, held at the Fairgrounds, is scheduled for Feb. 15-16. Our class will perform their Bhangra Dance routine on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 16, at 4:30. Please meet behind the Main Stage by 4:00. Children are admitted free and every dancer’s family will receive one free adult admission ($4.00). The Asian Celebration is an incredible experience. Come early and spend the day! Check the website for more information:
*RSVP: We need to know the names of children that will attend so a ticket can be reserved for your family. If you’ve not yet done so, please let us know whether or not your student will participate. You can send me an e-mail or a note to confirm your student’s attendance. (Also, SatPavan needs to know who will be dancing so she can adapt her choreography to the number of kids attending.)
ALUMINUM CANS NEEDED: We still need clean, 15 oz. aluminum cans for a special art project.
MAY FLOWERS?: We have Narcissus bulbs to plant. If you can come in during the school day and help the children dig holes and plant the bulbs outside, please let me know.
