Thank-you for your support to "Family Fun Night" last week. Many families purchased pearl milk tea, popcorn, and tickets to the game. The kids had a fabulous time. The fundraiser sponsored by the Student Council was a success.
This week, the school is having their monthly board meeting to discuss school matters. All parents are invited to attend and participate in room B108. There will not be any badminton this week because of the Board meeting. Next badminton session is Dec. 13 because of other school functions and the Thanksgiving holiday.
Next Friday, Nov. 8 is class observation. Parents are encouraged to attend their child's class during the first half hour to observe the classroom and give feedback to the Board. Forms can be picked up in the hallway to fill out. Please return the forms to the Student Center.
Nov. 15, the school has invited a college counsellor to visit and talk about what parents can do to help their child prepare for college. The talk will be from 7:15pm to 8:00 pm in room B108. After the talk, there will be a question and answer session where parents can ask specific questions. Hope to see you there.
As the holiday season approaches, you might want to consider donating to WVCLS and have your employer match your donation. This is a great way to help the school financially.
Finally, the school would like to remind the parents about their volunteer duty. Mandatory volunteer service is one way the school is trying to keep the tuition low. If you are unable to volunteer on the assigned date, you can ask another parent to swap the date. But you must notify the school in advance that another parent will be replacing you. Thank-you for your cooperation.
Don't forget to move your clocks one hour forward this Sunday morning as we go back to standard time.
