Bridget Veitch received a CLP grant to assist with the hosting of the Spring Festival at LaSalle Language Academy in Chicago, Illinois. The Festival will build community support for the Mandarin program at the school. The objectives of the evening are that the performing guests will educate parents about Chinese traditions, and the student presentations will showcase how much they have learned in Chinese language and culture class. A short term goal for the project is that it will enable parents to experience the successes of the current program by seeing how their children have been positively impacted by it.
