Hope to see you there! 
Our students will be performing at 10:50am on Saturday. Plus the YG PTO supports and staffs the Children's Room, so stop by and say HI and play some fun games. YG will also have a booth to promote our school during this school choice season.  Reach out an support our school this year at the Asian Celebration.
You can find the full schedule on the celebration website:

Learn more about technology in our district at Tuesday's PTO meeting.
Steve Menachemson, the 4J Director of Technology, will be coming to talk and answer questions.

In addition: A vote for a $10,000 expenditure request to cover two six-month interns will take place at the meeting. The PTO is asking for the funds to pay for two International Society of Educational and Cultural Exchange interns from Japan for a six month period.  These interns will be a part of the Japanese Assistant Teacher Program and will assist our staff during the school day just as our short term interns have done for years. See last week's newsletter for more detailed info.
See you on the 21st!
