Welcome back to school and we wish you all a great start to 2019! We begin the new year with a lot of exciting announcements to share:

January PTA Meeting
Please note that our next PTA meeting is on Tuesday, January 15th at 6:30pm in P2. We hope to see you there!

Celebrate Year of Pig in Flash Mob Style 
Join our Zumba style dance to welcome the Lunar New Year at 8am on Wednesday, February 6th.  We will dance to the song Pigsy Pigsy (Bajie Bajie). Pigsy is one of the beloved characters in Chinese classical novel Journey to the West. The song praises the joyful and simple minded nature of the pig, the last animal in Chinese zodiac. Group practice will be held every weekend from now until  February 3rd. Watch out the practice schedule in PTA bulletin board. Practice video: Pigsy Pigsy (Bajie Bajie).
