Education Seminar – America’s Public and Private School System

Time: Sunday 01/26 9:45AM – 11:45AM
Location: Cafeteria

Do you know all the programs that are available to your children at school?  What is the right channel to get your needs and wants heard in the US school system?  Have you explored private school options but don’t know what questions to ask?  How can public and private school programs help you if your child has special talents or needs? Have you ever encountered a situation that you and school take different stands on issues?
PCE club has invited the experts and parents in both public and private school systems to host our 122th event – a panel discussion on the US school system.
The goals of this event are to:
1) Help parents to learn the major differences between public and private schools, advantages and disadvantages of both school systems;
2) Share knowledge/information and experience of attending public vs private schools;
3)  Discuss how to best leverage the public and private education resources;
4) Share best practices how to choose the right school for your children;
5) Exchange ideas on how to deal with schools when things go wrong.

She also want to share the video clip to parents before so that we will have some discussion around that:

New Adult Culture class – Bagua Walking Meditation

Bagua walking meditation  walking in a circle while holding fixed postures. It will energize and strengthen the body while calming the mind, and refining and purifying the spirit. The exercise will open and harmonize the meridians of the body and promote overall fitness.
Proven effects of practicing Bagua: Bagua calls for practitioners to assume twisted spine positions which not only help stretch the spine, but also enhance blood circulation to all organs. As a result, practicing Bagua can help prevent cardiovascular diseases, cerebral vascular diseases, osteoporosis, and among others. Furthermore, a person can become more flexible and agile as a result of constantly changing direction during practice.

八卦内功,是一种以掌法变换和行步走转为主的内家武功,柔中有刚。走八卦可以在强身健体的同时,平静净化你的头脑和心灵。坚持走八卦还可以帮助你打通经脉,以促进身体的整体健康。
经实践证明的走八卦的功效:走八卦要求练习者的脊柱处于扭转的姿势。这种姿势不仅可以拉伸脊柱,也同时促进血液在各个器官间的循环。所以走八卦可以帮助预防心脑血管疾病,骨质疏松症,等其他多种疾病。同时,因为行走过程中需要定时转换方向,走八卦还可以增强一个人的灵敏度。
