The Asian Club was formed as a way for our Asian student population to gather and share the uniqueness of their culture with one another. We gather once a month before school in Mrs. To's classroom. The students learn the traditions of the Asian culture through crafts, discussions, taste testing, and much more! We also prepare for one of the most important holidays, Tet, which is Vietnamese New Year. Our students enjoy the opportunity to speak their native language with one another and to learn new words.
Our charity project this year is to help raise money for a nonprofit organization called Room to Read. It is an organization that believes changing the world begins with educating the children. They have helped to build schools, supply classroom furniture, and build libraries in impoverished countries, Vietnam being one of them. Our first goal is $65, which will supply puzzles, games, and educational toys for one library.
