Launching of the Filipino School

On Saturday April 26, 2015, The Filipino School had its grand opening at 1:00-3:00 PM and Open House from 4:00-6:00 PM. It opened its portal to the community inviting everybody who is interested in learning more about the Filipino history, culture and language. This Filipino School “takes students on a journey-starting from their current level of knowledge, and building upon that base level of understanding and self-awareness of being a Filipino.” Its main purpose is for the participant to understand his/her own roots in order to find self-identity. They will understand history, embody Filipino values, and communicate in Filipino. Eventually, each one will find self in this journey.

The sweet fresh smell of December air after the rain signals that Christmas is here again. Most of us welcome this moment with a smile because it is the time of the year that is filled with tradition. For now, CTFLC is a tradition that brings happiness and cheers to every membership and their beloved families, though we missed others.  We look at this celebration with anticipation mainly because we hold our last meeting of the year, ratify the organization’s Constitution and By-Laws, elect a new set of officers, enjoy sumptuous dishes, sing carols, play games, and exchange gifts “with a twist.”
