Thank You to a donation from our teacher!

In this time of high tech and at this place of Silicon Valley, we are constantly trying to keep up to the leading edge. The school started out with a slide projector, which was quickly upgraded to a video one, and then doubled to two. But we were still short in many nights.

The school board would like to thank our teacher for her donation of a projector to the school for classroom use. We really appreciate the help!
Teaching a whole classroom of youngsters is really a tiresome and challenging job. We want to give our teachers a big
THANK YOU!

As always, all donations are federal tax deductible. More details are here

Farewell to Santa Claus, thank you for the gift, 2016 is here!

We had a great time with the Santa last year. We all behaved very well and smiled when taking pictures with him.

We want to thank one of our parents, who want to remain anonymous, for donating another $200 to the school! They had been donating every year to the school in the past several years and we are very gracious for their generosity.

Again we have many thanks to our official photographer, Vice Principal Amy’s husband, who took many great pictures for us to share:
