Next Sunday, May 26- Memorial Day Weekend Holiday - No school.

Many thanks to the Vice Principal Joey Wong for a very joyful Mother's Day event. A special thanks to the Director of Boston OCAC of Taiwan, Mr. Ou, who joined us in celebration.

We, the Lexington Chinese School, are always supportive to our community. This year, we co-hosting a meaningful event to bring 6 documentaries of Taiwan to the Boston area (all with English Subtitle). We believed this is a great opportunities for our kids to know their parents' motherland (majority of our kids' parents are immigrants from Taiwan). We also hope, through these movies, to inspire our kids more into Chinese learning. Limited numbers of group discount tickets will be available to LCS families in the LCS hallway booth.

Last week’s Mother’s Day Program
A BIG thank-you goes to all Mother’s Day event helpers. Particularly Margaret Kuo, for hosting the program and the astonishing decoration that turned BHS cafeteria into a ballroom; Eric Wang for A/V technical support and DJ’ing; Bobby Lu, Chi-Wang Lin, and Kuan-Chun Huang whose bulging biceps made moving heavy tables a breeze; all the jaw-dropping performance from LCS parents transforming the event into a “LCS got talent”; and those parents offering help but I forgot to ask your name. Shame on me. Again, thank you all and hope you enjoyed our mother’s day program.

2. Every year, Parent Representatives offer the scholarship for LCS students who achieve 750 points or more on their SAT II Chinese Test. We encourage all students who qualified to apply for this scholarship by clicking on the link: SAT II Chinese Test Application. The application deadline is May 31st.

Executive Secretary - Liping Cheng | secretary@lcs-chinese.org

On your parent duty day, please report to the Executive Secretary in the cafeteria by 1:55 to get your assignment in order to facilitate arranging duties.

Please note, for the parents who plan to do the parent duty next year, you will have two options when you register. You can choose either both parents do the parent duty on one Sunday, or one parent does the parent duty on two consecutive Sundays. I am hoping those options can make things easier for everybody -- so we might have less parents who need to switch their parent duty dates. Please plan ahead for your choice.
