Involvement with Upcoming Hmong Occasions

There are two significant Hmong-related events happening in St. Paul over the next six weeks. CSE is going to be featured in both.

The We Are Hmong Exhibit at the Minnesota History Center opens March 7 and showcases the culture, history, and impact of the Hmong people. CSE is excited for this exhibit and excited to be a part of it.

To start, the CSE Dance Team was featured on the magazine's cover in anticipation for the exhibit. Then this Saturday, these very dancers will be performing for a private opening ceremony in the morning and the public ceremony in the afternoon to kick off the exhibit.

CSE is also assisting with the upcoming Hmong National Development (HND) Conference. HND is the national body working to represent the Hmong community in the U.S. Every year, they have a conference, and this year's is in St. Paul, April 16-18.

To assist and participate in the conference, CSE is going to be one of two local schools to be toured by organization representatives. Also, Superintendent Mo Chang will be on a panel discussing Hmong charter schools. Finally, CSE will have a booth at the conference, sharing with attendees all about our school.

To help celebrate and recognize the impact of the Hmong community in Minnesota, and to help represent the state and Hmong education, CSE will be at the center of these two very special occasions.

We are honored to help and proud to be able to show all that we do.
