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. 

親愛的家長:

一年一度的中秋佳節即將到來了!相信您也開始計劃和家人共度美好時光!
中秋節是我們的三大節日之一,今年中文部依然會持續與學生一同慶祝。
為了讓學生在今年也可繼續有中國文化的傳承,我們中文部在此將會教導以及讓學生體驗這特別的中國文化。由於月餅有許多種口味,歡迎家長把家裡有多餘的月餅,請學生帶給各班的老師,或是放置辦公室(標註「EMS中文部」),讓學生有機會嚐到各地不同口味的月餅。我們會在九月二十八和二十九日一起享用,同時也彼此祝福。中文部也將購買柚子給每個學生,做柚子相關的手工藝。謝謝各位家長的支持!
