Moon Festival Announcement from EMS Chinese Department

Dear Parents,

We are so excited that the Moon Festival is coming soon. Are you all ready to celebrate this special holiday with family and friends?

The Moon Festival is one of the biggest holidays in Chinese culture, and the Chinese department will continue our tradition to celebrate this special holiday with all students. Since there are so many different types/flavors of mooncakes, we welcome any extra mooncakes donated from Morrison families. You can have your child bring them to their classroom or drop them off at the front office (labeled “EMS Chinese”).  This way, we all get to try different styles of moon cakes and celebrate the holiday on September 28 and 29 together. Chinese Department will purchase pomelos, the traditional Moon Festival fruit, for each student. We will enjoy the fruit and make some crafts with the fruit. Thanks for your support. 



Students in grades K-5 have weekly chapels on Tuesdays at 8:10am, either in the auditorium or in Commons. MS students will have chapels mostly on Wednesdays at 8:10am, unless they join a K8 chapel on a Tuesday. Parents are always welcome to join our chapel services! The schedule for September is below:

September 29- K5 (Auditorium) 9/29 幼兒園到五年級 (禮堂)
September 30- MS (Commons) 9/30 國中部 (地下室Commons)
