John Gomes Elementary

Good evening Gomes Parents! Please read below for a message from some parents looking for volunteers for the upcoming annual Chinese Lunar New Year staff luncheon at Gomes.


Dear Gomes parents,

Happy New Year and I hope you all had a relaxing and wonderful winter break.

As we commence the year 2018, another new year celebration awaits in February, the Chinese Lunar New Year (Feb 16).

Year after year Gomes had celebrated this joyous event by hosting a hot luncheon for teachers and staff.

This year's luncheon will be held on Wednesday, Feb 21st, 2018 in Rm 413 (from 11:30am - 1:30pm).

The event is made possible with contribution from Gomes parents.

We will be outside the office during pick-up time (2:30-2:55pm) if you would like to donate in person, or you can send your donation through Paypal to me (please include your name):

In addition, we are also asking parent volunteers to help out on the event day (i.e. cook for teacher luncheon, pick up food order, bring in food items, set up room decoration, etc). 

Please refer to the following link to sign up. Thanks!

We appreciate and thank you in advance for your continuous support.

Please feel free to forward this email to other parents and help spread the words.

Finally, we wish everybody a happy, healthy, and prosperous year ahead and we are looking forward to an unforgettable Lunar New Year celebration this year!

P.S. If you have a WeChat account and would like to receive more information on the Chinese New Year event, please let us know and we can add you into the group. Thanks.
