Town markets have a long history in China and have been part of Chinese culture. Early records of the market (over three thousand years ago) can be found in the famous divination book Zhou Yi. The market not only functions as a trading place, but also as a social gathering place for the community. In today’s schools, campus marketing provides a valuable venue for students to practice marketing, self-promotion and inter-personal communication skills. To help students develop extracurricular capability, promote community building, and to help school raise funds for other public events, we will host the 2013 HXGNY Spring Market this Sunday from 12:30-1:30. We welcome all families to come and set up their booths and sell items that are no longer used at home. The goods are limited to school supplies such as 1) books and stationery; 2) toys and sport items; 3) home-made arts and crafts; 4) holiday costumes; 5) Chinese art and craft; 6) peanut-free baked goods or drinks. To emphasize the educational purpose of the event, student participation is required for all the booths. We encourage participating students to create marketing materials such as flyers, posters, price lists, etc. To cover the activity expense, and to fund future events, we recommend a donation of 20-30% of total sale proceeds to the school. Special prizes will be awarded based on booth poster design, sales amount and marketing creativity. Please click here for detailed activity rules and registration form. If you are interested, please email the completed form to Xuemei Ye at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Safety Reminder: Talk to your children about proper behavior and safety guidelines

Recap: 日本围棋大使访问我校(Japanese Go Ambassador Visits HXGNY):
Last Sunday, Apr 7th 2013, two special Japanese guests, Ms. Narumi Osawa and Mr. Mozart Ishizuka, visited Hua Xia Chinese School Greater New York (HXGNY) at the invitation of Mrs. Jie Tang, a well-known Go player at North America and the Go class instructor of HXGNY. Ms. Osawa is a professional Go player (4P) from the Go Institute in Tokyo, and was appointed as the nation’s Go ambassador by Japanese government. The accompanying visitor, Mr. Mozart Ishizuka (5P Go Player), is the president of the Japanese Go Club in New York. The guests were greeted by HXGNY school leaders Dapeng Hu, Jun Lin and Dachun Yao. All the participants shared their zeal and support of spreading Asian culture in North America. In the following three hours, Hua Xia students and parents played matches with Ms. Osawa, Mr. Ishizuka and Ms.Tang on handicapped stones. At the end of this fun event, Ms. Tang shared her thoughts from years of Go teaching, which was summarized as “Go is like life as life is like Go.” Please click here for photos and video. This event has been also reported by several regional media outlets, including bostonese.comEnglish-Chinese Online Journal and China Press. Please click here for details.
Originated in China, glorified as a reflection of ancient oriental wisdom, Go constitutes an important component of traditional Chinese culture. Being Chinese Americans, we shoulder the honor and responsibility of carrying forward this cultural jewel and introduce it to more people in this land, especially to the younger generation. Chinese school makes an ideal platform to carry on this task. Ms. osawa and Mr. Ishizuka’s visit is part of HXGNY’s continuous commitment to Go education.
Recently, a Go Expo was hosted at Harvard University. A documentary film is being created by the event organizers with Mrs. Jie Tang’s facilitation. If you would like to learn more about it, please check out the website http://www.surroundinggamemovie.com/.”
