We can kiss September goodbye and welcome great October. I bet many of us can't wait for the National Holiday, week off. Here is a small recap of this month, we had both a Morning Coffee and Moon Cake Class with great turn outs, people were very supportive. We would like for everyone to be just as engaged or more this month coming up. We have plenty of fun events scheduled and hope you can form part of it.
October 10th is our first ever LFA Luncheon at Waldorf Astoria from 12-2:30pm. It will be a nice buffet style menu with wine included for only 200rmbs to be paid at the door. Menu can be found here. Restaurant did request all payments to be done via wechat, alipay or local chinese bank card. We are looking forward to seeing many new faces there. If you are interested in attending please scan the QR code so we can make sure we have enough food for everyone.
Also another great asset to our school LFA Parent Mrs. Waan Crozier, will also be instructing a Thai Cooking Class. If you like Thai, this lady can cook! So make sure not to miss out, class will be the 22nd of October from 10-13:00pm, and the cost will be the shared ingredient cost.
Finally what all kids have been looking forward to, HALLOWEEN!!! Your HELP is NEEDED!
As you may already know this has been one of the biggest celebrations in school that kids love. The school always host a parade in the morning and by the afternoon kids go trick and treating through the secondary corridors. Dressing up is encouraged but, we do ask that all costumes remain within school guidelines; modest, no weapons: swords, knife, bats,etc.... and not scary. There are many young children and no one needs to be frighten. Parents may also dress up but we ask they follow same rules, as children. Do note that in order for the children to have as much fun as possible, we need HELP!
The LFA is responsible of purchasing trick and treat bags, decorations, small gifts that bring joy to the children but it can not be made possible without your help. So we ask for donations of candy, small dried fruit, tattoos and small little toys for their bags. Trick and Treating is an event for primary level student so this year we are trying to somehow include secondary level student with a little bit of join as well. Donation of cupcakes for secondary level student would be much appreciated. If YOU could assist with baking or treating the secondary students we ask that you let us know through the Halloween helpers wechat first before just sending baked goods.
MORE HELP, we need parents to come decorate the classroom doors that the kids will trick and treat to and the cafeteria as well as the corridors. An other group to help take door decoration and store away for next year. The LFA can only be as active as the support comes in so we ask that you help out and get involved, lets inspire our kids to lend a helping hand. please join the wechat group if you can help.
Enjoy the long week off and lets plan to get busy!
另外我们的家委会成员Mrs. Waan Crozier，将为我们指导一个泰式料理课程。如果您喜欢泰式料理，这位女士就是料理能手！请不要错过这次机会，课程将于10月22日，10点-13：00，费用由参与的家长均摊。
最后是所有的孩子万分期待的万圣节！我们需要你们的帮助！大家可能已经知道万圣节是学校孩子们最喜欢的庆祝活动之一。学校通常在上午举办游行，下午孩子们会到中学部玩“Treak or Treat”的游戏。鼓励家长们给孩子进行万圣节装扮，但我们希望装扮的服饰能符合学校的规定：端正的；无武器：剑，刀，蝙蝠等等；非恐怖的装扮。
家委会负责购买“Treak or Treat”游戏里孩子们喜欢的袋子，装饰，小礼物等，但是没有大家的帮助无法完成所有的工作。所以我们要求大家捐献一些糖果，小的水果干，临时可洗文身和袋子上的小玩具。这个游戏以前只有小学部的孩子们参与，今年我们想可以让中学的孩子们也能参与。如果您可以协助我们提供一些烘焙的食物，或者根据我们要求招待中学孩子们，在送来东西之前请通过万圣节帮手的微信号与我们联系。
我们需要家长们来帮忙装饰玩“Treak or Treat”游戏的教室门口，还有餐厅，以及走廊。另一组将帮助移除装饰物并放到储藏室供下一年使用。家委会需要行动上的支持，所以我们希望大家能够积极参与，让我们激励孩子们身处援助之手。如果您想要提供帮助的话，请关注微信。
