NWCS PTA Weekly Email 3/10/2011

PTA This week:

1.  河北杂技团访问西雅图表演 ( Acrobat Show by Chinese Acrobats of Hebei )

上周的通知发出以后有不少家长回信订票. 我们已和剧场协商, 以下是我们能提供给大家的价格:

a.     May 8th at 3:00 PM - $30 adult and $20 youth   --à $24 adult, $18 youth
b.     May 8th at 7:00 PM- $30 adult and $20 youth    --à $24 adult, $18 youth
c.     May 9th (Monday) at 1:30 PM - $9 all tickets      --à $8 all tickets
d.    Service charge per ticket:  $3                           --à waived.

如果还有有意购买门票的家庭或个人, 请向PTAemail告知人数(分大人和孩子)和场次. (8 3pm的场可能加购较难)

另外, 剧场和我们准备在58号安排一个由我们学校的同学与杂技团的演员们(多为十几岁)共同参与的免费晚餐. 这是一个让孩子们接触演员, 并锻炼中文,交往的好机会. 尤其是如果孩子们刚看过3:00pm的演出, 会有不少感兴趣的话题进行交流. 一周的报名已经接近我们计划的人数, 可以再接受少量报名. 我们希望出席的孩子有一定的中文交流能力. 演员们在陌生的环境里,可能会有些腼腆.希望我们的孩子们能带动他们, 让他们感到放松和开心.

Regarding the show by the Chinese Acrobats of Hebei at Kirkland Performing Arts Center, many parents have contacted PTA to make reservations. As a group purchase PTA has negotiated the price down with KPC. Please see above price update for information. If you would like to buy tickets but haven’t emailed PTA to reserve, please do so. ( Please note that seats in the 5/8 3pm slot may be limited )

Also, we would like to host a community luncheon with the Chinese Acrobats of Hebei and our students.  It would be offered free of charge.  The purpose is to give our students an opportunity to speak Mandarin with a professional troupe of traveling artists.  We also feel that the acrobats’ visit to Kirkland will be made more special by meeting members of the local community (their English is limited and have few chances to meet their audiences while on tour). The luncheon will be held after the 3:00pm show.  Please contact PTA if you and/or your family are interested. We are mostly full but can take a few more people.

2.  春节节目DVD   ( DVD of NWCS CNY Show )
我们会再制作一些春节联欢的DVD. 有意购买的家长请本周到PTA desk购买, $5一张
We’ll have some more CNY DVDs for people to buy. $5 per disc at PTA desk.
