Dear Parents of 1D,
I hope your are finding this weekly check-in helpful. Please do use the brief “teaching points” as way to encourage your children to talk more about what they are learning in school and/or to make home connections to their school day.

Mid-Autumn Festival and Chuseok are quickly approaching. The Chinese teachers are preparing some activities for the students and I will be reading books and stories centered on these holidays as well, but I’d like to invite you to come in and share a favorite story, pictures, costume, food, or craft with the children that would increase their understanding of these holidays. If you would like to come in, please just send me an email and I’ll get back to you so we can set up a time and day for you to share.
Thanks for reading! Lisa
