Thank you, Dads!

Last Friday, April 22nd, Pudong Elementary School hosted our annual “Date with Dad” event. We had over 250 people participate in the event that included a wide variety of activities such as playing board games, building forts, playing gaga ball, noodle samurai wars, and many of the Dads’ favorite… being “rolled” in the bubble balls. It was an afternoon of fun and connections and one that many of our students will recall when they think back on their elementary years. We want to thank the Dads and guests who came out to participate in this event. And a very special thank you goes to two special staff members, Eric Nicolai and Magsi Magsumbol, without their creativity, hard work, and dedication, this event would not have been possible.
Be sure to turn in your mission sheet for the Date with Dad raffle to win a dinner date with dad at Blue Frog!
Teacher Appreciation Week – Thank you to the PTSA!
Build Community: We will build a strong community of educators, parents, and students knowing that the quality of relationships in the community is a direct and key determinant of the quality of student learning. A huge thank you to our Pudong PTSA for organizing an amazing Teacher Appreciation week. Pudong Elementary teachers and teaching assistants very much appreciated all lovely food and gifts that were prepared last week. We would also like to thank all of the parents who supervised children during the lunch hour so that our faculty and staff could attend the Luncheon on Thursday. We are so lucky to be part of a community that comes together to support one another.
