ATS Pongal Celebrations 1/13/2019

Welcome you all to ATS Pongal Celebrations this Sunday 1/13/2019 at the Gym.

Dear Parents,

We wish you all a very Happy Pongal!

 Here comes our long-awaited Pongal cultural program at ATS. 

Once a year we bring this program to entertain and to educate our students about Pongal and our Tamil culture.  It also provides an opportunity to bring out many talents of our students and parents.  This year we are excited to bring the event with the theme of  “தமிழர் நிலத்திணைகள்”. 

 As always our students, parents, choreographers and our cultural team are working hard with great enthusiasm. I invite you all to come with your family and enjoy the program.  Please have a conversation with your children on Pongal, our land, where you are from, what type of landmass you have in your native place and if someone lives in a different land area and what do they do.  This will help our children to relate the event well and enjoy the program better. 

ATS Pongal Celebration:

When: Sunday, January 13 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. 
Theme:  தமிழர் நிலத்திணைகள்
