Many thanks to Ričardas Černiauskas for coordinating last week’s performance of the JAUNIMĖLIS ENSEMBLE. The audience and the performers had a wonderful time.
We continue to celebrate Lithuania’s Centennial all year. Think of fun ways to do so at home: learn 100 new Lith words; walk 100 miles; read 100 pages of Lith text; eat 100 cepelinai or koldūnai; say something nice to others 100 times….
YARD DUTY – PLEASE VOLUNTEER FOR YARD DUTY EVEN IF IT’S NOT YOUR TURN. WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS , AND WE ARE ALWAYS SHORT-HANDED . WE CANNOT EXPECT THE TEACHERS TO DO IT ALL. PARENTS SHOULD HELP KEEP THEIR CHILDREN SAFE .
