May 2016 MAC (Mandarin Advisory Committee) Update

Chinese Culture Night Fundraiser and Open House

The Chinese Culture Night Fundraiser was a huge success! The total amount raised was $2,889.50. This money was used for MAC book purchases for MDL classroom use. We would like to thank business and individual sponsors for their generous donations, teachers who organized the performance and enrich the program, close to 30 volunteers who helped with the event, and the wonderful continued support and participation of our families. We also had a good turnout for the open house. Lincoln Center indicated that there was more interest than spots for the incoming K classes this year. Great job for the MAC outreach committee!

MAC Book Purchase

Using part of the money that we raised last year and this year, MAC was able to purchase 126 books/book series for the MDL program at Glenwood. We spend $3,214.35 to purchase about 1/3 of all the books on teachers' wish lists. The books have been delivered to the teachers; and we hope the teachers and students enjoy them. We will continue to fundraise in future events in order to fund all the books needed.

Just some of the many books purchased

End of Year Picnic

MDL parent and MAC social activity committee member LaDonna Huseman is organizing an end of year Picnic on Sunday, June 5, 2016 from 4:00pm-7:00pm at Hargraves Center Park Picnic Shelter, 216 N. Roberson St. Chapel Hill. Please look out for an e-mail from MAC for flyer and sign-up sheet, and please come and join us for some end of year relaxation and fun!
