Here is the rest of SILC schedule.

30th April (Vibha Taal event) : We now have 9 students (from Neelam's class) participating in the dance competition on 30th April 2011. We have one more spot if you (from Neelam's class) are interested. See more details at   There is a registration fee of $20 per participant with 10 member maximum limit.  Please note that the registration is on first come first serve basis and is limited to first 10 students.  SILC will also be paying half of the registration fee ($10 for each for 10 students). So, if your child is in Neelam's class and is interested to participate in this vibha competion, please provide your childrens name (if you have not already given) to Neelam along with $10 check payable to SILC.
Mark your calendars! May 21st is SILC Graduation day where our students show case what they have learned at SILC. Students from preschool, languages and electives (art, dance, tabla, cooking, yoga, sports) will be getting on the stage to perform / show / tell what they have learned. The graduation planning is under way now.  We are working with teachers for the event planning and logistics. Please stay tuned for further details.
We will also release SILC Year book on the graduation day. Please contribute articles (students can write about their experiences in learning at SILC, parents/teachers can share their experiences - first timers at SILC are specially welcome as they usually bring out fresh perspectives), share any photos or art. Please send your articles to Shiv Bhatia (Assistant Principal) who will be coordinating the SILC year book.
Wishing you all another wonderful week.
