Dear East-West Parents and Guardians,
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) holds regular monthly meetings on the first Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. You are warmly invited and strongly encouraged to attend our next monthly meeting, to be held on Saturday, January 8th.
Our meeting will open with a Breakfast Buffet celebrating the Filipino New Year's tradition. You don't know what that is? Well, please come to find out and hear a bit about the many waves of immigration to the Philippines -- which include Chinese, Spanish, and Muslim settlers. We expect this will be a festive and informative experience for all.
The business portion of the meeting is designed to give parents tools and information they can use to help their children get the most from their education. We will hear from Chinese teacher Ms. Chang about the school's award from Hanban-Asia Society, which will provide us with exchange opportunities with China and $10,000 a year to improve our Chinese language program. Our high school guidance counselor, Mrs. Park, will provide information about the financial aid process for college. The meeting will go on to cover news and information specific to East-West from the PTA, Principal Mr. Sherman, and Assistant Principals Ms. Oh and Ms. Panday. And finally, we will allow plenty of time for a question and answer period so that concerns of the parents can be addressed by the administration. The meeting will end at approximately 11:20 PM.
As always, we will have translation services for Spanish and Chinese speaking parents.
We hope you can join us on Saturday, January 8th.
