Dear Huaxia Members:

As the 2012-2013 administration team of Huaxia Chinese School of Greater New York (HXGNY), we are pleased to announce that we made significant progress in preparing for the new school year on our new campus at Purchase College, SUNY.  Here is a summary of what we,along with many devoted volunteers, have accomplished in a short week.

  1. The HXGNY web site http://www.hxgny.org is now open to public.
  2. Under the leadership of Prof. Jun Lin and Dr. DaChun Yao, the new school admin and parent council team have been formed. We welcome more people to join us. Our teams are committed to serve the community with dedication and hard work.
  3. Dedicated teaching staff is crucial for the school.  We are glad to inform everyone that at this point, many former HXNY teachers will join HXGNY, among them are 19 language class teachers and 15 culture class teachers.  These include all the MLP and Mei Zhou Hua Yu experimental class teachers, and many Standard Chinese class teachers.  Discussions with other teachers are ongoing.  We expect more will join us before school year starts.  We have also recruited new teachers with strong educational credentials.  We’d like to express our gratitude to all teachers.  Please click here for Teachers’ Credentials.
  4. We have drafted the curriculum for the new school year.  Depending on student enrollment, we will offer Mei Zhou Hua Yu and Standard Chinese classes from first to ninth grades, MLP class from first to fifth grades. To help parents choose the suitable class, we provide a class selection guide on our web site.  Please check out ourLanguage Class Selection.
  5. In addition to all the language classes, we are also going to offer over 20 culture classes, among which you can find traditional HXNY classes like folk dancing, chess, etc, and new offerings such as yoga for kids, iPad apps design and introduction to finance, etc.  If you have talents and ideas and are willing to lead innovative culture classes that will stimulate students’ interests and expand their knowledge, we want to hear from you.  Please check out our Culture Class Selection.
  6. To help parents have a more enjoyable time on the new campus, we have planned a number of parents’ clubs such as the poker and chess or book clubs.  Various seminars will be provided throughout the school year. We have obtained permission to use some of SUNY’s facilities such as the soccer field and gym.  We are still in discussion with SUNY to use other facilities including the professional dance studio, swimming pool and tennis courts.
  7. We have successfully negotiated with SUNY to allow all school students and members to access all the cafeterias at SUNY purchase.  We are also contemplating to provide pre-ordered Chinese food based on demand.
  8. Our online registration system will be fully functional shortly.  The registration will start on August 8.

On the beautiful campus of SUNY Purchase, HXGNY will honor Huaxia’s tradition of volunteerism, nurture innovation and focus on education. Through the tireless effort of the entire volunteer team, with the help and support of all the Huaxia members, we are confident that HXGNY will become a vibrant and cohesive Chinese community and we will fulfill our mission of providing a great education to our children on Chinese language and culture.

For students who want to join the Chinese Folk Dance class, here is a letter from the teacher.
