프린스턴 한국학교 주최  “한국 가곡과 아리아의 밤 ”

*음악 프로그램은 7시30분에 시작 합니다.

장소: 킹스톤교회 (Kingston Presbyterian Church)
주최: 프린스톤한국학교

“네”
“잘 보세요. 이렇게 반달 모양으로 송편을 빚는 거예요”
“ 아, 재미있다”

학생들은 물론 한국말도 배우고 이처럼 문화 체험학습으로 추석에 송편도 빚으며 한국역사도 공부합니다. 프린스톤 한국학교는 차세대들을 교육하기 위하여 18년 전에 교포들에 의하여 세워진 학교입니다. 우리 학생들은 이런 과정을 통하여 나의 정체성을 찾으며 푸른 하늘을 높이 날 수 있는 튼튼한 날개를 단 지도자적 힘을 키울 것입니다. 그리하여 늠름하게 세계를 향해 달려가는 한국계 미국인으로 잘 살아갈 것입니다.
이번에도 기금 모금을 위한 ‘한국 가곡 및 아리아의 밤’을 아래와 같이 가집니다. 학교는 학생들의 등록금 만으로는 학교 운영이 어렵습니다. 이때껏 지역 사회의 뜻있는 분들의 성금으로 유지해 왔음에 감사합니다. (프린스톤한국학교는 뉴저지주에 등록된 비영리단체이기 때문에 기부금으로 내신 금액은 세금 공제 혜택을 받을 수 있습니다.)
이날 저녁은 물론 모금을 위한 자리이긴 하지만, 학교 또한 우리 지역사회의 이웃 여러분들께서 늘 물심양면으로 학교에 베플어 주신 그 사랑에 보답하는 자리로 마련하고 있습니다. 음악을 사랑하시는 분들께서는 누구나 무료로 이 음악회에 오셔서 아름다운 가을 저녁을 저희와 함께 보내시는 즐거움을 나누시기 바랍니다. 음악회는 저녁 일곱 시 반에 시작합니다.
늘 우리 학교를 후원해 주신 데에 깊이 감사 드리면서 금년에도 우리의 꿈나무들을 잘 키울 수 있도록 마음써 주실 줄 알고 기다리겠습니다.

Place: Korean School (Kingston Presbyterian Church)
Auspices: Korean American Institute of Princeton

“Children, did you wash your hands?”
“Yes, we did.”
“Watch carefully. This is how you make the half-moon shape of ‘Songpyun’.” (Songpyun is a Korean rice cake for the Moon Festival.)

Princeton Korean School students are not only learning Korean language but experiencing Korean culture firsthand, such as by making Songpyun. The Princeton Korean School was started 18 years ago by first generation Koreans to educate future generations. We strongly believe this education process will enable our children to grow with a deep-rooted Korean identity, which can otherwise be lost in the melting pot. Our ultimate goal is to help our young Korean Americans contribute productively to the global community, as Korean Americans.

This year we again invite you and your family* to join us for another heartfelt celebration of Korean culture at the Korean American Institute of Princeton’s (KAIP’s) Annual Fundraising Event. The KAIP is a non-profit organization that carries out its mission through the Princeton Korean School. Generous contributions from friends in the community have been the main source for its operating budget, and we are so grateful for the continuous support.

This event is KAIP’s primary fundraiser. We also want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for our sponsors and patrons. Please come and enjoy performances of traditional Korean folk songs as well as Western arias by accomplished professional opera singers (this music program is open to all, free of charge for music lovers). The music program starts at 7:30 P.M.

We kindly ask you to support the KAIP by joining us** during the evening of November 8th—in the middle of the Great Season—and we would appreciate your generous donation for this good cause.

Sincerely,

KAIP – Board of Trustees, PTA and Teachers’ Association

 

The Don H. Liu Scholarship

Founded in 2014 by the Asian American Bar Association of New York (“AABANY”) and the Asian American Law Fund of New York (“AALFNY”), the Don H. Liu Scholarship Program seeks to identify and cultivate future Asian American leaders of the legal profession in order to address the single most important issue facing Asian American professionals today – the barrier to advancement.

Asian Americans remain grossly underrepresented in positions of influence, leadership and power within the legal profession. The number of Asian American partners in law firms and general counsels in our largest corporations do not reflect the diversity that can be found in today’s law school classes or the ranks of junior associates at law firms.
