NEWS

Share Your Job/Occupation!

We are learning vocabulary for jobs/occupations in Mandarin! It would be AMAZING if we could extend students' learning by having parent volunteers come in to share about their careers! We will conduct this during centers, so you will be working with a group of 5-6 students at a time. Please inform our room parents if you are interested, so we can plan for this to happen! Thank you very much for considering this learning opportunity for our students!

End of School Year Help

Would anyone be available to help before school or after school this week? Please sign up through our room parents' email! Thank you for your help!

Last Homework Packet

This week's homework packets will be the LAST packets for the year. (*Students cheer "Yay!"*) Students will NOT need to turn in the packets. It is optional for them to complete and they can remain at home.

Summer Packet

Please keep a lookout for a summer information packet on resources, strategies, and tips for keeping their Mandarin fresh over the summer!
