On May 18th and 24th, CAAS sponsored a ‘Dumpling 101’ demonstration to members of CCS at Syosset High School. The event took place after school in the Consumer Science lab. The students were shown how simple it was to make dough out of flour and water. They were then able to roll out already prepared dough and learned how to make pleats and close up the dumplings. These dumplings were then boiled to be eaten. The making of scallion pancakes was also demonstrated and the students snacked on these as well as pan fried dumplings.

The Roadmap to College Bilingual Seminar 

On May 2nd and 9th CAAS proudly hosted the first ever bilingual (English and Mandarin) 2- part college planning seminar “The Roadmap to College” at Sitan Tai Chi Martial Arts Center.  Over 55 parents and students attended this information packed free program presented by Michael Binder, Founder and President of Your College Navigator, LLC and translated by CAAS member, Michelle Yu.

Middle and high school parents and students learned about what colleges look for in a student, how colleges make their admissions decisions, how students can determine the best college for them, and what students should be doing now to maximize admissions into those schools.

Feedback from parents and students was all positive.  Middle school mom, Xiaowei Sun said, “Michael’s presentation was great!  He shared tons of success stories on how students can stand out when they apply to college.  He focused on teaching us what we can do and not on selling his services.”  Board member and high school mom, Lisa Chen, said, “My son definitely learned some good advice on what he can do better to prepare for college in the next 2 years.”  SHS student, said, “I just signed up for a free consultation with Michael.  I know he will help me handle the stress of selecting and applying to college next year.  I am so glad I attended this seminar!  Thanks for hosting this!”
