Dragon Boat Race Team
Looking for a fun summer activity? The Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival is on July 27th and 28th and we need paddlers. Last year our elementary team won the Bronze medal!! We are looking to have at least one adult co-ed boat and one elementary boat entry. Each boat consists of 18 paddlers (minimum 6 females).
Feel free to invite your friends to row - MIP families will be given first priority.

Chinese New Year Fundraiser Success!!!
Our 2nd Annual Chinese New Year Fundraiser and Celebration was a HUGE success! It was an evening of blackjack, mingling, bidding, and laughter... and most importantly we raised close to $60,000!!! We had a great turn-out with over 175 attendees and 115 companies and individuals donating auction items. Our MIP supporters included not only MIP families but incoming 2013-2014 MIP families, those with kindergarteners a few years down the road, CUSD Board Members, Bergeson staff, and members in our community throughout Orange County.
Congratulations to everyone! And a BIG thank you to all who helped make this event successful and fun by donating both time and resources!
