Great Job to the Students in 4:30pm and 5:30pm Classes on Their Uniforms!

Friday, November 9th, 2012

We would like to acknowledge 4:30pm and 5:30pm class for dressing in their winter uniforms! “100% good discipline” as KwanJangNim would say.

However, for 6:30pm class we would like to emphasize that there are still a few students who forgot about their winter uniforms. Please keep in mind, we will not be able to reward black tips for testing to these individuals until they wear their winter uniforms.

We look forward to seeing all of our students dressed appropriately and wish them good luck for December testing.
