5. Parents are Invited to Check Out the New Classes we Offer this year

-Beginner’s Ballet is designed to introduce young children as young as 4-5 years old to the fundamentals of ballet dance. It teaches children about their body posture, movement, and balance. It will set the foundation for their continued learning of either Chinese Folk dance or Ballet. In addition, we have an accomplished Ballet dancer who is dedicated and passionate to teaching your children.

-Public Speaking and Writing: Our teacher Shelly is an accomplished public speaker herself. Her class will use public speaking as a tool to grow our children’s self-confidence and communication skills from an early age. It is one of the most important skills a child can develop.

-Chinese Chess and Magic Class: Both classes will introduce children to the world of logic and imagination, while Chinese Chess will teach children on thinking prospectively and globally, Magic class will immerse children in their imagination. Both teachers are passionate about what they do. 

6. 2019 Annual Staff Safety and Teaching Training A Great Success:

This year we had a record attendance to our annual mandatory safety training, it shows the high level of professionalism and how much they care about what they do at MLCCC, thanks to everyone making the effort on a Friday evening to be a part of this training.

Worth mentioning is our by-invitation special seminar of Kind-U by Dr. Christine Gorigoitia. This seminar introduces our staff to the basic understanding of motivating children to learn and to behave in class through a Kindness based program. It was a huge success. Thanks, Dr. Christine Gorigoitia!

Look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday!
