Dear Friends and Family~
THANKS TO YOU....XIE XIE!!!...My spelling bee team from last year raised the most funds for our public school: Broadway Elementary- the Mandarin-immersion school based in Venice, CA whose pilot program started 7 years ago.
Every year, our dedicated parents fundraise to help pay for the Mandarin-speaking teaching assistants that is critical in assisting the Mandarin teachers.
It's an education like no public school has offered on the Westside here in LA, and Los Angeles Unified School District is not responsible to provide Mandarin-speaking teaching assistants to our program.
So as it becomes, it is our burden to provide these shortcomings to our children that come from all colors of the rainbow wanting to learn Mandarin at our school.
I have Russell who has been in the program since Kindergarten and now in June he will graduate 5th grade; Olivia is sailing thru 2nd grade and little Lauren is completing her kinder year learning Mandarin as well.
The results are mind-boggling after a few months, these Kinder kids are spouting off Mandarin like you wouldn't believe.
This is a program that needs to survive!
Any amount is GREATLY appreciated.
I am trying to get all my facebook friends to donate $1.00 each....can it happen?? I hope so!
THANK YOU for your support.
PS - If you donate to my cause I will happily buy you a ticket to the event for dinner/drinks for a few laughs!
