Thank you parents!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to the fifth grade and secondary school parents that contributed delicious food to make the 2nd combined Teacher Appreciation Lunch a success. The teachers really enjoyed and appreciated the lunch - it's so neat to see everyone eating and fellowshipping together. There will be one final combined lunch in April with 4th grade parents and secondary parents, please contact us if you are able to contribute. Thank you!
Here are some slides presented during Part 2 of the presentation from St. Stephen's Society. It was an interesting and informative presentation - too bad we ran out of time and had to cut short this program that is intended to be a week-long seminar. We would like to thank Jackie Pullinger and her group of several speakers, some who shared their stories of addiction with us, for working with our school to provide these two seminars as well as others presented to our high school students. If there is enough interest from parents, there was talk of organizing future seminars. Also, a big thank you to our generous parents who donated to the society.

Please join a Parent Seminar

All parents are reminded they are welcome to attend a Parent Seminar with St. Stephen's Society on Saturday, Feb 6th from 2:30 until 4:30pm in the Lu Kao Hwa Theatre. There will be snacks and drinks provided.

This is part two and speakers will be giving ideas about parenting for healthy development during adolescent years and suggesting ways of intervening early to prevent addictive behaviors from developing. Part one was attended by just over 50 people and many stayed to enjoy a light lunch and fellowship after. Following are a few of the informative slides that were presented. We hope to see you there!
