2015-2016 HXGNY Class Schedule Reform
We have seen great growth and expansion in student enrollment in our school over the last few years. The ever growing student body presented challenges for the school infrastructure in terms of facility spaces, class size and teacher recruitment. After extensive research and discussion, the school administration now presents a 2015-2016 HXGNY Class Schedule Reform Proposal to ensure continued growth of our school and at the same time to improve the quality of the class instructions. In the new schedule, one otpional culture class is added to the existing three-hour curriculum. Language classes in lower grades are changed to two sessions. Special culture classes are created for K and preK students. For details, please click here (http://www.hxgny.org/wp/2015-
May 28th Registration Opens for Existing Families
Registration for the new 2015-2016 school year will begin on 5/28 for existing families. Before the registration system opens, on 5/26 we will publish on our website all language class listing and teacher bios, as well as cultural class descriptions and teacher introductions. Existing families will also receive a special newsletter dedicated to registration issues early next week. We will explain in detail the new four-hour instruction time table, registration policies and frequently asked questions. Please read this newsletter carefully when it comes out.
Once the system opens on 5/28, we encourage all families to submit their registrations and payments early, both to secure their placement in the desired classes and to facilitate our planning for next year. Available space in each class is on a first-come first-served basis. The system gives priority based on time of full tuition payment. If your first-choice class is full, please register for your next most favorable class and send an email to hxgny-waitinglist@
All registrations paid in full before 7/5/2015 will automatically receive a $50/student early registration discount. We strongly recommend you to remit payment via PayPal. Please set up a PayPal account if you don’t already have one. Payments from PayPal will be reflected in your registration record in real time and secure your spot in your desired class. There will be a lag with credit card payments. No checks are accepted for online registrations.
May 31th HXGNY Open House (Registrations Open to All Families)
We will host our annual Open House on 5/31 at our White Plains High School facility. There will be extensive displays of posters about our curriculum, teachers and activities. Parents can talk with school leaders, teachers and other parents to get first-hand experience about our school. They can leaf through textbooks, visit classrooms and gym facilities, and experience the community life here. It is a great opportunity for both new and existing families to learn more about our new school year and new initiatives. Please spread the word and encourage anyone interested to attend this event.
At the Open House, we will have multiple registration counters set up to assist with all registration-related issues. We can help you register new accounts and new classes. We can also assist with any changes to the online registrations you already submitted. In addition to PayPal (most preferred) and credit card, we also take personal checks at on-site registration.
HXGNY Registration Team
Last Sunday (5/17) , HXGNY Activity Department successfully hosted the annual Track & Field Event. With the support of parents and volunteers, more than 90 students participated in this event. Young athletes of 4 to 14 years old competed in 50 meter, 100 meter and 400 meter race, stationary jump, jump rope, potato sack race and tug of war games. The competitions were fierce and fun. Some parents even joined their young children in the tug of war game, leaving beautiful memories for both. Special thanks to all the volunteers and referees for their help and great support.
