Chinese New Year Event

  • Last year was the first year, I took the whole school on a school wide Chinese field trip to The O'Shaughnessy to see a Chinese dance performance put on by CAAM Chinese Dance Theater. From the positive feedback I received from families, students, and teachers last year, I decided to do it again this year. An estimate on the total cost of this field trip to take the whole school is $5000-$6000. This estimate includes tickets to the show and buses.

    In order to help fund this field trip, I am asking Familes and Friends of HPE to help raise money for the field trip. I have started a Go Fund Me page that you can share with families and friends who would be interested in joining our efforts to bring the Chinese arts to our students at Highland Park Elementary. CAAM Chinese Dance Theater has once again GRACIOUSLY decided to help us with a fundraising campaign to help us raise money towards the tickets and the buses. I believe with both fundraising efforts, we will be able to reach our goal to bring ALL of our students at HPE to this Chinese New Year dance production. 

    Here is the link to the GoFundMe Page: https://www.gofundme.com/g6xayr-chinese-field-trip-chinese-dance&rcid=r01-153814101268-37d64866de34483a&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w
