Good Evening East-West,

We arrived in Hangzhou early this morning and had a very busy day! After enjoying an energy packed buffet breakfast, we were on our way to our sister school. There we had a meeting with the principal and some student ambassadors, a campus tour, and the opportunity to sit in on some AP classes.

While many of us stayed indoors during the first snow storm of the year, a few of our high school students spent the day shoveling snow for seniors in our neighborhood.  Darren Huang, Jia He, Sen Xu, Andy Gao, and Corey Cheung (not pictured) helped clear walkways, steps and common driveways for senior citizens. The list of homes that need their assistance increases each year.  Thankfully our group of students who volunteer their time in this endeavor continues to grow.  Go East-West!
