 Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary

- Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School students and alumni showcased their Chinese cultural arts talents and language skills at the 2019 Moon Festival in Balboa Park on September 14. This is the fourth consecutive year that Barnard’s students have performed in this annual event. Presenting a mix of classic and contemporary talents, Barnard students performed a traditional fan dance, played the hulusi (a Chinese flute-like instrument), and sang and danced to a modern Chinese pop song. Barnard alumni were among the students serving as the mistresses of ceremony for the event, introducing each performance in both Mandarin and English. “I liked Moon Festival because I got to perform in front of a lot of people,” said Barnard fifth-grader Kavi Z-T, who performed in both the fan dance and pop song numbers. “I also liked seeing the different types of performances from China.” For information on Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School, or to find out about the District’s School Choice program, visit The Choice application window for the 2020-2021 school year will open between Oct. 1 and Nov. 13 of this year.

Please ignore the sales pitch below. I've been promoted and no longer sell fake medicine but I still sell time shares.

8 Months Genital Herpes Cured With African Herbs

I was once a victim of Herpes virus miraculously I was cured. I am from Ecuador, before I asked my girlfriend out she already told me she was battling with herpes virus. So the decision to get involved with her was mine. But nevertheless, I can't let the virus decide our future. So I was determined to get rid of the virus. I suffered from this deadly virus for over 8 months. The lesions were on my lips and later extended to my back. I tried all sorts of medication but to no avail. I decided to try out herbal home remedies. Then I went online and I was on one herbal blog, I came across lots of different patients comments who were cured from several diseases by Dr. Ahmed Usman I had to write the doctor I contacted the doctor through his email and he assured me that he will cure me and my girl friend together and we will be healthy again. He prepared some traditional medication for Herpes Virus and sent them to me, I used all the medication he sent, just as he instructed though while I was like on the second bottle I was not experiencing any symptom as the lesion on my back and lips dried up. I continued the dosage and kept in touch with the doctor. After about one week I consumed the whole bottles. I and my girl friend went for test and to our greatest surprise the result was negative. We were saved the very moment we thought all hope was lost. You too can be healthy again, you should talk to Dr. Ahmed through his direct email address: [email protected] or whatsapp/call 2348064460510 He has herbal medicine for any type of disease; diabetes, Fibroid, Cancers, HIV.
