A weekly newsletter curated by our Family Liaison
Dear Yu Ying Families,
This month is Women’s History Month and the theme for 2023 is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” Students are encouraged to ask the women in their family to share a bit of their history and reflect on what stories they have to tell.
We’re just about half way through March and there’s still so much going on! Read on for more info about GLEE and upcoming community events!
