SILC: Weekly Digest (05/15/2011)

SILC: Holi Celebrations (05-14-2011)

Dear SILC Students, Parents, Teachers and Volunteers:

It is wonderful to play Holi outside the school in the drizzle yesterday. Some of you almost dropped out of the fun due to the drizzle. I am sure you are all glad now to venture out to have fun. Color and some drizzle is great combo. Pictures speak 1000 words and watch the fun we had in this album.

My family and I went to Hindu Temple of MN today to watch Samparnam - Indian Classical Dance program by twin cities dance teachers and their students; It is nice to see so many SILC members there. Special appreciation to Neelam Malhotra - our dance teacher, and Samykuta and Divya - SILC students. We are all proud to have you as part of SILC family.

Next Saturday 21st is the big day at SILC - it is graduation day;  All our langauge and elective classes will be presenting what they are learning through out the academic year. This is also a perfect day to bring a family or two along with you to show them what your children are learnign at SILC. Please feel free to bring a friend or family with you.

Please note that the graduation event will be held in the auditorium. So, please ensure that you directly come to the auditorium by 9:45 AM and settle down in your seats. We will start the program with vande mataram at 10:00 am and the children need to be on stage before that.

We are looking for some additional volunteers to setup the stage and to make the arrangements (projector, mike, screen, speakers). Please contact Shiv Bhatia or show up at 9:30 to help us out.

I will send out another mid-week summary of the finalized graduation schedule. Printed copies will also be made available for you to pick up upon arrival. However, here is an inkling of the outline.
of the schedule. We will have language and elective classes to come up on stage class-wise to show / perform what they have learned. In the end, we will also invite all the volunteers, teachers and SILC board members to come up on stage to see the people who worked hard to make this year a success. The graudation event will be followed by light snack in the cafetaria.

We expect to wrap up the event by 1 PM. Please ensure that you get a copy of the year book and certificate (all students and volunteers will get one) before you leave SILC.

Please note that I have finally managed to upload the pictures from Social Studies Day. See the Weekly Digest dated 03/27/2011 or click here to see the pictures.  On seeing these pictures, you will get an idea of how the graduation day is going to be.

See you all next week along with your friends and family.
