SPRING FESTIVAL A HUGE SUCCESS
Thanks to Tim Luu and a small team of dedicated volunteers, plus many donations from parents and local companies, Spring Festival was a wonderful fun occasion, that also resulted in raising over $4000. Tim worked very hard always with a cheerful smile and managed to get many donations. Andrew Tang organized the Silent Auction which raised over $1673.
Gordana Malic organized the delicious food and prizes, Michelle Palibroda organized the games and Jenny Chen organized the bake sale and cake walk. We had many others who volunteered on the evening selling tickets and supervising games and sales. Thank you to our many High School Students who also volunteered and helped with the games that the children loved.

Auditions will begin next week. Students who play an instrument such as piano, violin or guitar should remember to bring their music and instrument on TUESDAY. Parents are asked to help by encouraging participants to practice and helping them to introduce themselves in a nice clear voice.
