We the People
American Youth Cultural Art Club
On Saturday, December 1st, Hamilton's American Youth Cultural Art Club presented a dance performance on the stage of the 2018 Arizona Asian Festival.
From costumes to practices, Chairman David Tang planned and arranged the event. President Lily Ma along with four other members, Catherine Fang, Esther Lu, and Diana Huynh participated in the dance. The whole show used with weeks of preparation with the hardships from all the members, not to mention Mrs. Kuo's substantial support.
Originating from the cave paintings of Dunhuang, China from over a thousand year ago, the traditional dance displayed a scene of flying fairies dancing elegantly through the sky with ribbons. The show became the spotlight of the festival; the club received numerous compliments and applauds from the audience afterward.
Our team wants more and more students who are interested in world culture or simply performing, to join our club. The next show is in February and you might be another star of the show! For more information, please see https://davidtang963.wixsite.com/aycac.
Si Se Puede
Jasmine Mercado from Chandler-Gilbert Community College spoke to both ELD classes about community college and university, and she also shared her journey to enter and be successful in college. Ms. Mercado is a graduate of Chandler High School, so they connected with her through that as well.
In addition, Alberto Esparza of Si Se Puede presented the ELD program with laptop donations in conjunction with State Farm Insurance; more laptops will be provided in the future as well. Mr. Esparza gifted one laptop to Ubah Hashi, who was ELD student of the year. These will be very helpful to replace the computers currently in the classroom for activities, such as Rosetta Stone, to build students’ language acquisition.
