4. Spring Semester “Mark the day”

Please mark the days in advance and I ask you to participate in the events with us;

February 17– Korean Drumming Performance in Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM).

This event is the Lunar New Year celebration event that BADM hosts every year.

We are grateful and very excited about this event because our school has been invited to represent the Korean community. Please join us as a member of the Korean Community. The more we are engaged, the more friends our children can make! There will be other Asian community group performances and crafts tables. This is a great opportunity to entertain yet educate our children to know more about Asian cultures.
