Walk-a-Thon for Nepal

Dear Families,

As you know, Nepal has been recently devastated by an earthquake.  The Nepalese need our support.  To actively be global citizens, we are holding a “Walk-a-Thon” this Friday to raise both awareness and monies which will be donated to a group that is on the ground in Nepal working to help those most directly impacted.  We are asking each student to donate a minimum of 10 rmb and walk with their classmates as a show of support to the people of Nepal.  This will take place from 8:00-9:00 at the Sports Field.  We welcome any family members to join us as well.  Together, we can make a positive impact.
