It was an exciting night! See you in 2017.

We all had a great time with Santa at the Christmas party. The real exciting raffle came at the very end!

Thank you for the generosity of many parents and board members, our Santa Claus’s hands were getting tired drawing out so many winning tickets. Our official photographer, Vice Principal Amy’s husband, took lots of great pictures to capture the moments for us to share. Here are the ones with winning smiles, plus all the class pictures with Santa in here.





Christmas Party on Friday Dec 16!

Time really flies, and 2016 is near the end! As usual, we are having our Christmas Fund Raising Party at the school before taking the two weeks off.

Besides having fun at the classroom party and taking class picture with Santa, we invited a professional photographer who will take a high resolution digital picture of your child/family/friends with Santa in a picturesque backdrop for seasonal greetings. $5 donations to the school are welcome!

This year, we are very fortunate that one of our new board members has donated hundreds of dollars as raffle prizes. So make sure to purchase the fund raising $1 raffle ticket and stay around after school to win a stuffed monkey car, flurry baby sheep, and hundred of dollars!

Thanksgiving is the time to give.

In supporting our community, Student Council is hosting the Second Harvest Food Drive on Friday 11/18. It is a blessing to be able to give to others.

Student Council is running a competition where the class with the most donations (=points) by the end of the month will win a pizza party! Details are here.

Many ways to donate:

  • Cash/Check payable to WVCLS. We can give receipts for tax deduction.
  • Unopened & non-perishable food on Nov 18
  • Online directly any time in Nov. Please write in your name to get class points.

On behalf of the school and the Second Harvest Food Bank, we thank you for your support.

It was so much fun in Family Fun Fund Raising Night!

Many many thanks to our Student Council and our PTA Co-Director Ken Law in organizing the Family Fun Night. The whole school had so much fun playing so many games, and the Pearl Milk Tea were all sold out!

Archery, Basketball, Bean Bag Toss

Bowling, Chopsticks, Lollipop Draw

Mini-Golf, Shuffleboarding

We would also want to thank Quickly Milk Tea for providing their continuous support to our fund raising event.

Oct 28 Family Fun Night, with Pearl Milk Tea!

Our Student Council is organizing a Family Fun Night, from 9 to 10pm, at the Student Service Center. Purchase your Pearl Milk Tea along the way to support the school!

The Student Service Center will be filled with games, including Archery, Bean Bag Toss, Lollipop Draw, Basketball, Bowling, Mini-Golf, Soccer, and Shuffleboarding. At the same time, Student Council is holding a fund-raising Pearl Milk Tea event to support our school. So when your child is hot and sweaty playing the games, treat them with a cool cup of pearl milk tea!

To assure a pearl milk tea will be ready for your child, you can pre-order by submitting the form. Then pay when you pick up your order on Oct 28.

Oct 21, free showing of “我愛香港” episodes, room B108

Thanks to our PTA directors, Olivia & Ken Law, we will have a free showing of couple episodes of “我愛香港” in room B108, starting at 7:10pm. All parents are welcomed to come watch the shows.

“我愛香港” is the latest series of game shows produced by Hong Kong TVB and had started broadcasting in August this year. More details are in their wiki page.

A light refreshment will be provided. See you in B108!

Great turnout in All Parents Meeting. Here is a summary.

We have good participation in our Meeting last Friday, enjoying organic grapes and moon-cakes. Here is a summary for some of us who were not able to attend.

  1. Usual parade of volunteering board members. We are very happy to welcome new members Heidi Wong, Lydia Chan, and Ken Law.
  2. With many generous donations from parents and their matching companies, we were able to reduce last year deficit down to $5500.
  3. With a reduced enrollment and rising cost, we are projecting a $23,000 deficit for the coming year. Will need a lot of hard work to reduce it this year.
  4. We gave out scholarships to 5 students last year totaling $3500.
  5. Two of our AP class students had passed the College Board Chinese AP test.
  6. In the coming year, in addition to the usual activities, we plan to add:
    • Parents Nights. This will be some topics of interest to our parents. If you have any interesting topics, feel free to contact PTA Co-Director Olivia.
    • Summer Exchange Program. This will be a summer exchange program involving SJSU and a Chinese University for our students. Interested parents can contact Marketing / Public Relations Director Lydia for more details.
