Message from current PTO:

To maintain the vitality of our PTO and ensure that our School keeps up with the times, one of our tenets is to take in new ideas from new members.  To that end, we the PTO have decided to adopt a tenure system in which each member volunteers for 1.5 years, where the 0.5 year is when old and new members overlap and work together to ensure a seamless transition.   

Therefore, drumroll, our new 2018-2019 MLCCC Weekend School PTO members are:

President: Tang Xiaofeng

Members (in no particular order): Feng Xufang, Xu Lei, Cao Li, Zeng Chuibi, Liu Yan, Wen Xiaoqian, Mao Yingying, Xiao Wen.  

A big round of applause for these 9 magnanimous people!  (Last year’s PTO will still be around to watch over the growth of our children and school.  You are welcome to talk to us anytime!)
