Where: Castro Valley Blvd. & Redwood Road
The Castro Valley Fall Festival that MERC participated in this past weekend, 9/13 & 9/14, was a great success. At the event, MERC hosted an information booth to distribute school flyers, answer questions, host games and give away prizes. We were able to introduce our school to many people who visited our booth. We hope to see many new families join our school this fall.
We wish to extend our appreciation to the parents and teachers who signed up for setting up, cleaning up and hosting the booth on shifts during the two-day event. We also want to thank the MERC families that visited our booth and showed support.
Many MERC students who came along with their parents gave a great deal of help as well. It was amazing to watch the children’s enthusiasm in hosting the games, handing out souvenirs, and demonstrating the skills of Chinese YoYo. We were happily surprised to see many of our former students who stopped by our booth and greeted their teachers. They expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to learn Chinese at MERC years ago. They also shared that they have greatly benefited from the foundation of the Chinese language skills built at MERC.
We are grateful for the warm and positive spirit from everyone. Thank you all for a joyful and memorable experience in working together as a team.
