Dear Parents,

We have reached the halfway mark of  the 2017-2018 school year.  How are you feeling?  We are feeling so proud of our students’ growth and we attribute their success to your support at home.  The immersion experience is life-changing for both the children and the parents because each day we must find new ways to help our children make sense of the world through their multilingual and multicultural lens.  Here is an article about language immersion programs and global citizenship:

我们已经达到了2017-2018 学年的一半大关。 你感觉怎么样? 我们为学生的成长感到骄傲, 我们把他们的成功归功于你在家里的支持。 沉浸式体验对孩子和父母都是一种改变生命的方式, 因为每天我们必须找到新的方法来帮助我们的孩子通过多语种和多文化的镜头来理解世界。 这里有一篇关于语言沉浸计划和全球公民身份的文章:

Traffic Update/交通更新

It has been brought to my attention that we are blocking the thru traffic lane during our drop-off and pick-up times.  In order to respect neighborhood drivers’ rights to the road and prevent ourselves from getting ticketed please follow this new guideline:  When you are waiting to enter the school parking lot, stay to the right of the lane boundary (white line) as much as possible so that thru traffic doesn’t get blocked. If you are parking in the visitor’s parking lot, pull up as close to the parking bumper as possible as to leave enough space for the pick up/drop off lane.  Please take a look at this diagram.  Call the office or email me if you have any questions.  Thank you very much for helping us solve this problem.

我注意到在上学放学接送孩子时有车道堵塞的情况。为了尊重社区行车者的路权及防止我们自己拿到罚款单, 请遵循新的规则:当您在等待进入学校停车场时, 请尽可能行驶靠交通线(白色)右侧,以避免行车道堵塞。 请看以下示意图。 如果有任何疑问,请致电办公室或电邮我。 谢谢您的合作帮我们解决这个问题。

Lunar New Year Assembly/农历新年庆祝会

The Lunar New Year Assembly is our biggest celebration each year.  Teachers and students are working hard to showcase their communal talent and teamwork.  We hope you can join us!  Seats will be limited so we ask that you invite only immediate family members.  We will do our best to record the performance and share with families.  The field will be open for parking.  Doors to the gym will open at 9:00.  Fifth grade students will be selling refreshments so please have cash ready.

我们诚意邀请各位家长一起参加我们狗年农历新年的庆祝会。跟往年一样,由于参加观礼的家长人数居多,我们将会把庆祝表演分成两天。请您按照以下的安排,参加您的孩子表演当天的庆祝会。由于位置的限制,这一次我们的邀请仅发给父母或者监护人.  五年级的学生们会买一些简单的点心和饮料。请他家支持,带现金。 谢谢!
