Principal - Jo-ey Wong | principal@lcs-chinese.org

1. Thank-you to parents, parent representatives, and LCS staff for a productive and informational parent meeting. A big shout-out to some TAs, students, and volunteers (Shih-Yi Chen, Jerry Chen) for organizing and delivering textbooks to classrooms.

2. A couple of requests from BHS, i.e. our landlord— (A) desks and chairs in the hallway are not to be moved, (B) keep clean and return tables and chairs in cafeteria where you first see them. Let’s keep items in the classrooms and library where they are.

3. A friendly reminder that food or drinks are allowed only in cafeteria, not in classrooms nor library. BHS does not expect to see food-/drink-related wastes in the trash bins of classrooms or library.

4. Be on time to pick up your kids after class or activities. I may be wrong but your kids might rather be with you than with a staff member after school.

5. We will have an Information Session for bilingual class parents (in English) this Sunday (9/15/2019) at 2:30pm in Little Theater. Bring your questions and we will do our best answering them.
