Back to school Newsletter, August 18, 2014

Dear Teachers and Parents,

I cannot believe the summer will be ended and we will soon be starting a new school year.  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer vacation. The first day of our school is Sunday, September 7. Before our school starts, I would like to send out “Back to school” weekly newsletters to you and let you know the news of our school.

First of all, congratulation to our AP students who participated the AP Test last May. All of them received perfect score of 5 except one received 4, which is very good. Thank Lin Lao Shi for her excellent teaching skills and contributions to our school. Lin Lao Shi has done a tremendous job for our Guang Hua Chinese School. Unfortunately, Lin Lao Shi has resigned and we wish her all success in her future endeavor.

Here are the news for this week:

1. Registration: As of today, there are about 1,400 enrollments for the 2014-2015 school year. As our school policy, school may cancel the classes if fewer than 6 students except the Chinese and CES classes. In next two weeks, please check the classes you registered and make changes if you like. We will make some adjustments and let you know the cancellation as soon as we decide.

2. Reminder: Due to renovation of the Physical Education Building (GYM), basketball and badminton classes only open 9 weeks until Nov 9.

3. Guang Hua Orchestra: We may cancel this class if no instructor can be found by August 31.  Please let us know if you know anyone could take this position.

4. Teacher changes for CES1 and Chinese for Adults:

Yvonne Chen will teach CES1 and Chinese for Adults. Ms. Yvonne Chen graduated from Shanghai Teachers’ University. After came to States, she earned two masters, one was M.B.A. and the other one was Education and major in Technology Enhanced Learning. She worked as Asian Affair Director for a company for over 6 years after she graduated.

When Ms. Yvonne had her son, she found that watch her son grow and help him to reach his full potential is more exciting than handle million dollar business. Before her son turned into two, she finally quit her job to devote full herself to her son. She worked at her son’s day care for three years and earned her CDA (Child Development Associate) on 2012.

5. Textbook orders:

a. Students in Kindergarten A, B and C will receive their textbooks at the first day of the school. Please bring a check or cash to purchase from their teachers or parent representatives.

b. For students who are not in KGA, KGB and KGC and who don’t have their textbooks yet, please send a message to Feng Rong at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ASAP and discuss with her about the textbook your child/ren need/s.

6. Tuition payment: Please pay your tuition on time. Full payment must be received by September 14, 2014, the second week of the 2014 fall semester. You can use paypal online to pay your tuition or wait until our school starts. You also can send your payment to our school mail box:
