  5. springCNY as school holiday petition updates
    • In tonight’s meeting, Board just agreed to put the proposal of Chinese New Year as official school holiday into the agenda in next meeting. They said it is required to let public people be aware about this agenda. The Board will arrange another meeting for official discussion, and meeting location has been approved to be held at MMS auditorium. The date will be announced later (possible in February). Hopefully, it will be after the end of 2nd marking period of  all schools so more students can join. We will need more people to show up, speak and stay during board’s discussion in next meeting. More details will follow! – by Austin Huang
