Grade 2 - Home News Embracing the Year of the Dragon! We are now heading to the 2nd semester of the school year. A heap of exciting activities and lessons awaits our students. We celebrated the Chinese New Year with a big bang! Laoshi Erni, the Mandarin teacher facilitated the said event with the help of other teachers. We conducted a Mandarin Spelling Bee, which Ophelia got the 1st place, followed by Giovanni for the 2nd place and Christabella for the 3rd place. After the competition, we joined the preschool students in watching the Barongsai performance in the basketball court. After which, we had a short program in the auditorium where everyone performed
and also enjoyed watching others performed on stage. Aside from the busy days of tackling the lessons, we managed to conduct our Spelling Bee and Math Quiz Bee. Our congratulations to Giovanni who reaped the 1st place, Cheryl Nathania, 2nd place, and Belinda, 3rd place for Spelling Bee. For Math Quiz Bee, Belinda got the 1st place, Ariel, 2nd place and Melinda, 3rd place. The following events would not have been possible without the joined effort of all the Language Arts and Math teachers. Our deepest gratitude goes as well to all the par-
