Good job last week with the Halloween event. Everyone really contributed to make this event a success. All the kids loved the games and the costume contest, and I really hope we can make next year's event even better.
This Saturday, there will be a teacher coming from Taiwan to discuss the difference in the education systems. TYS members are welcome to have lunch with the teacher, and you will be able to express your knowledge about our education system. Please attend this event if you have time.
Lastly, this Saturday night, we have another volunteering event. We will be doing our usual duties, picking up trash, serving food, etc. Please wear your TYS shirt!
Thanks, and have a great week!
Last week's mid-autumn festival was great! All the kids had fun, and everyone really pitched in to help make it a success. The play was a hit, and so were the great sweets that were made for everyone to enjoy.
