NWCS PTA Weekly Email 3/3/2011

PTA This week:

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

中国河北有杂技的悠久传统, 尤其是沧州吴桥被誉为杂技之乡”. 今年五月初西雅图地区会迎来河北杂技团来美国巡演的一站五月8,9两日, Kirkland Performing Arts Center 将有他们的精彩演出.

西北中文学校PTA准备和剧场合作, 安排购买团体票, 以让大家得以观赏, 并得到一点价格优惠. 以下是零售票价. 另外剧场每张收$3 服务费.
a.      May 8th at 3:00 PM - $30 adult and $20 youth
b.      May 8th at 7:00 PM- $30 adult and $20 youth
c.      May 9th (Monday) at 1:30 PM - $9 all tickets
请有意购买门票的家庭或个人向PTAemail告知人数(分大人和孩子). 如果我们有足够多的人数, 就可以在价格及服务费上有所优惠. 请有意者尽快回信. 83:00pm的空位已经不多了.

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. 请有意参与的家庭和PTA联系.

There will be a performance this May by the Chinese Acrobats of Hebei at Kirkland Performing Arts Center.

NWCS PTA and KPC will work together on group sale arrangements for three performances.  Group sales involve a discount (TBD depending on the number of interested families) and a cap on ticket fees:
a.      May 8th at 3:00 PM - $30 adult and $20 youth
b.      May 8th at 7:00 PM- $30 adult and $20 youth
c.      May 9th (Monday) at 1:30 PM - $9 all tickets
Information about the show can be found here:

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. 

2.  春节节目DVD   ( DVD of NWCS CNY Show )
上周我们准备的春节联欢DVD销售一空, 造成有些家长没有买到. 本周我们会再制作一些供大家购买. 请到PTA desk, $5一张
Last week our DVDs of NWCS Chinese New Year Show were sold out. This week we’ll have some more for people to buy. $5 per disc at PTA desk.
3. 失物招领  (Lost & Found)
上周六在学校大厅里遗留下一个孩子的书包, 黑色并有红黄颜色的图案. 还有一个折叠的小搬运车. 请失主和PTA联系领取.
There was a kid’s backpack left at school’s commons area last Saturday. It’s black in color with red and yellow touches. Also there was a small foldable carrier. Please contact PTA if you are the owner.
