Dharma School News – November 2022


Dharma School Registration Forms Due

If you have not yet submitted your Dharma School student registration form for this year, please do so.  It will help us get an accurate headcount for this year’s Dharma School classes that allow us to determine class groupings and funding for classroom activities.

Dharma School Theme for the 2022-23 Academic Year

The Dharma School teachers have decided to hold a contest for this year’s Dharma School theme that will be incorporated into lessons and Dharma Talks throughout the year.  A $50 Amazon gift card will be awarded to the student whose theme is selected.

MVBT Taiko

MVBT Taiko held a “Taste of Taiko” event on Sunday, October 2, to give interested Dharma School students and adults the opportunity to try taiko.  Regular taiko classes are now underway!

Halloween Parade

Please wear your Halloween costumes to the Temple on Sunday, October 29!  We would like to see all of our students dress up for the annual Halloween parade immediately following service in the hondo before the students are excused for class.
