A Cool Summer to everyone!

Filipino Summer School to Start on August 2, Enrollment Going On

Dear Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the Enrollment for the PAAD Filipino Summer School (Paaralan) is now ongoing. Children and adults are welcome to the Summer Paaralan, and enrollment is free of charge courtesy of the PAAD. However, we have rescheduled the starting date of the Paaralan to August 2 to give more people the time and chance to enroll.

Our annual Summer School "Paaralan" will now run every Saturday on August 2, August 9 and August 16 at the Holy Family Church Religious Education Center, 15 Gender Road, Newark, Delaware 19713. Graduation day will be in the afternoon of August 16. Classes will run from 8:30 A.M. to 12:30 PM. On August 9, the classes will be from 8:30 A.M. to 11 A.M. at the Holy Family Church Religious Education Center. The students will then go the Picnic in Glasgow Park, enjoy lunch and then continue with games and other physical activities.

The Summer Paaralan is the centerpiece program of PAAD, where PAAD volunteers teach the Philippine language, literature, folk dancing, history, culture, tradition and Arnis De Mano martial arts to interested Filipino-Americans and their friends. Children enrolling in Arnis De Mano should be 10 years old and above. The Paaralan, a highly successful activity, aims to preserve our Filipino culture and heritage, and integrate those with American values and way of life.

To enroll simply email me the following information to at

Name of student
1. Age
2. If child, name of parents
3. Contact email address
4. Contact telephone number
5. Do you want to enroll your child in Arnis De Mano Martial arts? Please answer Yes or No.

See you all in the Summer Paaralan. Together, we will see all our students (children and adults) expand their knowledge on the Philippine language, culture, tradition, heritage, arts and more. We will also see them meet new friends, play, have fun and interact with one another.

Thank you very much.
Best regards,

Rosie Elazegui
