SILC Youth Dance at FON 2011 - Chunari Chunari / Marjaani Marjaani

Kaikottikkali: Adults Dance

Dear SILC Students, Parents, Teachers and Volunteers:

Hope you all have had fun at Festival of Nations this week. I  couldn't attend the event yesterday, but I did attend FON today. I heard SILC dancers (children, youth and adults)  rocked the stage with their performances.  I have posted some pictures and links I have recived from SILC community. I have also bumped into the photos / videos posted by SILC and FON community at youtube and Facebook as well.


Thank you and congratulations to all SILC performers for thier  performances at FON.  Please send me any pictures and video you have taken at FON. I will archive the best of these at silcblogs for future reference and record.

Note that we have two more weeks of SILC classes and both are big days - Holi Celebrations (May 14th) and SILC Graduation (May 21st)

May 12 - Deadline for sending the articles for SILC Graduation Year Book.  The deadlie is extended by four days to get the articles for the year book. Please send your articles to Shiv Bhatia, Assistant Principal - directly

May 14 - Holi Celebrations:  We will be celebrating Holi next week. I just checked whether forecast for next saturday. Looks like we are going to have a good day with 60 degrees - the perfect weather to celebrate Holi.   Language classes will be held as usual. After the language classes, we will go outside the school  and celebrate Holi with colored powders (dry colors for sure; and wet colors if weather permits).   So, wear something you do not mind getting messy - because it will sure gets messy and it is going to be lot of fun.

May 21 - Graduation:  All our studetns from languages and electives classes will be show casing what they have learned on this day.  We will also release SILC graduation book. This is the final day of the SILC for the current academic year and should not be missed.  Please ensure that you resolve other conflicts and attend this event.

And thank you for sending your nominations for Uma Nambudiripad Volunteer award.  Our volunteer coordinator Natarajan Raman will be working with his team to chose one of the nominees and will let us all know all about the receipeint of this award on the graduation day.

Also note that there is a "Samarpanam" event  - an evening of Bharatnatyam by local artists at Hindu Temple of MN (MapleGrove) on Sunday, May 15th at 4:30 PM. If you are interested in Indian classical dances, this is an event you do not want to miss. Our very own SILC dance teacher - Neelam Malhotra - is also performing at this event along with the other teachers in twin cities.  The tickets are $15 adults and $10 students/children. Tickets are available at the door on the day of the event. 

Wishing you all another wonderful week.
