Next Monday will be the Mid-Autumn Festival Traditionally, it is a day for family to get together and celebrate the harvesting season under the full moon. In Taiwan, family members/ friends usually have a outdoor BBQ party to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival and enjoy the moon-cake. For those who has family members far away, we can celebrate together in LCS!

We will also have our annual fire drill this week. Please follow the instructions of School Staff and evacuate the school as soon as possible to open space.

Notes on Use of BHS Facilities
An incident was reported during our school hours last Sunday (9/16). In one boy’s bathroom, someone removed all urinal screens and placed them inside vanity sinks. This likely is a prank but the intention of such act is not fully understood.

I would like to remind to all LCS staff, teachers, parents, and students that it is our responsibility to keep Belmont High School clean and orderly during our rental use. Items in the classrooms, library, bathrooms, gyms, and any BHS facilities, are not to be altered. If you see something out of order or seems wrong, please report to any staff in the office (Rm 146). Thank you!
