Recap – Teacher Training 

Another session of teacher training was held last Sunday (9/15/13). Teachers familiarized themselves with the registration system to manage their own classes and the school website to join forum discussions to exchange teaching ideas. Two teachers (Erhan Ma and Bing Li) shared their teaching experiences – engaging students, age appropriate teaching methods, and professional dedication. The teachers then worked in groups to finalize their teaching plans. Please click here to view pictures of all parents meeting and teacher training.

Parking Lot And Note to Parents

With the joining of many new families, we are running out of parking space close to the main entrance quickly. The administration team worked on this issue and now the west parking lot is added. School staff will open the entrance facing the west parking lot between 9:20 to 9:50 AM for your convenience. Other time please keep this entrance closed for safety issue.  Parents are encouraged to use this big parking lot.由于学生人数增加,原有停车场不够用。请大家使用学校西面的大停车场。早上9:20 到 9:50 有管理人员开专用进口,方便大家从C翼 进入教室。Please be noted that no parents are allowed to stay in classroom during teaching time. Last weeks we were reported by several teachers that some parents were insisted to stay in the classroom or hallway during the whole time. This is a distraction to teacher and students. It severely impacts teacher’s normal activities.

Registration Announcement
