We welcomed our 23rd student just a few short weeks ago. Catherine, a former TAS student, joins us from California, and we are very pleased to have her in our class. The girls were especially happy, because it brought their numbers closer to the boys. I was pleasantly surprised when I met Catherine’s parents because I had taught their daughter, Ann, a few years ago in 5th grade.
Here is a photo of Catherine just outside our classroom.
One of the best times at TAS is the celebration during Chinese New Year. Thanks so much to the parent volunteers who helped make the day successful.

We welcomed our 22nd student not long ago. Jessica joins us from Korea, and she is quickly making new friends in class. As you can see from the photo, Jessica’s bright smile is beautiful. We are glad to have you in our class, Jessica.
Here is Jessica with Cheyenne enjoying an activity during our Chinese New Year celebration.

As part of the Community social studies unit, we needed a class name and flag. After careful consideration and voting, the class chose “Dragon Readers” for their name. It’s fitting, as they are a class that loves to read. Here are a few photos of groups of students working on posters that describe what a “Dragon Reader” is.

The four values of the entire school are: Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness. You would be proud of some of our students for fulfilling the value of honesty not long ago. While we were out in the bus parking lot walking Caramel, one of the students found a coin. On the way back to the classroom, we stopped by Mr. Whalen’s office and gave it to him to take care of. Even though it was just 10$NT, our students didn’t even think about not turning it in. It’s nice to see our students doing the right thing.
Here are the students talking to Mr. Whalen
