Dear CASPY Families,
All of us here at the Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth at Yale University hope that this message finds you and your family well.
With our Saturday, October 29th just a couple of weeks away, we're excited to release the official Fall 2016 CASPY Day Registration form. The deadline for registration is October 14th at 11:59 PM EST.
**Please note the date change. We have previously sent out an email saying that CASPY would be on November 5th but due to room booking issues, CASPY will now be a week earlier.**
Once you sign up, please expect a confirmation of registration email by the Sunday night after your registration.
Since we rely on accurate numbers for planning, we ask that if you sign up but find out that you are unable to attend, to please let us know ASAP.
Below, please check out a SAMPLE schedule, taken from our Spring 2016 event. PLEASE NOTE that small details may change, but generally, it will be the same program.
If you have any questions regarding either the registration form or process, we're here for you to reach out to. We will send out details about our Fall 2016 event in the near future. Enjoy the coming months, and we cannot wait to see you once again on October 29th.
Thank you so much!
Chelsea Guo and Jiaqi Liu
