Chinese School Families,
It has been a quiet and beautiful long weekend. Many of my friends took foliage scenic trip around the region and showed off their fall colors through WeChat, and I did not need to go outside to enjoy the breathtaking views of many places.
On Oct. 5th, we were fortunate to have Dr. Randy Cale give us a talk on parenting. I hope many of you have found it inspiriting. If you need further information, you can go to http://terrificparenting.com/
or follow up with Dr. Cale on Facebook or Twitter. This week we have another seminar specifically targeting language study. Please see details below.
1. Seminar “how to encourage kids to learn Chinese at home”
This Sunday afternoon we will host Yuming Si, an experienced educator in Chinese language from Philadelphia, to give us a seminar on how to raise kid’s interests to learn Chinese at home. Yuming has been teaching Chinese since 2006 and started a Chinese school in Philadelphia in 2007. Since 2009, he has been editing a set of eight Chinese textbooks “Holistic Education” to address the needs of textbooks suitable for American born Chinese. You can find more information on http://www.holisticedu.us/index.html.
The seminar agenda is listed below.
To avoid disturbance to the speaker, I will need parents to go in and out the auditorium from the back door on second floor during the seminar. Parents sitting outside the auditorium should also try their best to lower their voice to keep the hallway quiet. All of audience would appreciate your cooperation.

The annual Chinese Story Telling Contest for the school year of 2014-2015 will be held on Sunday, November 9th, at the CCC building (1:00PM – 4:00PM). The deadline for registration is October 26. Please refer to attached announcement for details. We are looking for parents to participate in the judge team. If you like to get involved, please contact Vice Principal Xufeng Sun (email@example.com).
3. Youth Team Activity
The youth team held its first volunteering activity at Eddy center in Troy. It was well received by the senior residents there. We should all be proud of them being able to share their time and care with others. We also thank the parents who encouraged their kids to volunteer and provided the transportation. Please see attached report from the presidents Ryan and Jeffrey. Stay tuned for next activity.
With that, I will wrap up this weekly update and see you on Sunday.
