  Thank you for your participation in bringing cans and plastic bottles last month.It was successful. We collected $12.50 which will be added to our new building fund.

3.Recycle Project

      As you know we are in process of getting a permit from the city for our new school building. It is a matter of time.

What we have to do now is move to the next step which is fundraising for this project.

   We need a large amount of money, consequently, we are asking everyone’s co-operation to make our dream comes true. As one of our fundraising functions,

   we decided to collect recycle objects, such as plastic bottles and aluminum cans. This is not a big money maker, but we believe every student’s co-operation

   is important.

 

   The collection day will the first Saturday of each month. Please rinse and dry them before students bring them to school.

   The first collection day will be the 3rd of December.
