The GMIS Lunar New Year Celebration is fast approaching and our kids are hard at work practicing their song and dance numbers for you and their families.


In order to make this event run smoothly, we are asking our very generous community to volunteer some of their time to support our kids, teachers, and staff.  Please note, that as a "thank-you" to all our event volunteers, you and your family will be provided access to the performance VIP seating area.


We thank you for your consideration and efforts!
