家长每周更新 12.10-12.14 Parent Update

亲爱的家长们,大家好!

Dear parents,

时间过得好快,下周孩子们又要进行MAP测试了,看看孩子们经过三个月的学习长进了多少。美国的高校越来越重视MAP测试的成绩,因为它可以从多个角度反映孩子们持续的学业成长。

How time flies! Another MAP testing comes next week to see how much progress students have made during the past 3 months. American universities are putting increasing emphasis on MAP results because they can reflect student’s academic growth in different angles.

24号是孩子们的圣诞义卖活动。今年圣诞义卖筹集的资金通过初中部同学们的投票表决将继续帮助上海医治之家。上海医治之家专门收留残疾的弃婴,每年根据筹得的资金数量帮助弃婴做恢复手术(除了抚养他们之外)。一年级的孩子在用英文写”我眼中的上海”时,充满感情地写到我们在上海更新帮助弃婴。

On Dec. 24thcomes the Flea Market. The money we collect this time will be donated to Shanghai Healing Home once again according to the vote by the middle school students. The organization is committed to taking in abandoned disabled babies and provides them with recovery operations based on the funds they get besides raising them. A G1 student wrote about TAS helping the abandoned babies emotionally when given the topic “Shanghai in my eyes” with the material of what we did last year.

这次圣诞义卖有许多孩子们平时创作的作品,同时也欢迎孩子们订购一些需要的产品进行义卖。学习产品选择,产品定价,广告宣传等市场经济的基本知识。一,二年级欢迎家长志愿者进班帮助和指导,每班可以有5名志愿者协助。

A lot of creations by students will appear in the Flea Market. Besides, we welcome students to orders some necessary goods for sale. They may learn some basic knowledge in market economy such as product selection, price setting and advertising, etc. G1 and G2 parents are welcomed to give directions at the scene. There is a limit of 5 volunteers for each class. 

义卖期间的货币使用更新学校印制的代金券。下周18-20下午3:30-4:00学校门口有财务销售代金券,盼望家长们踊跃购买,24号下午二点后欢迎家长们来学校用代金券购买孩子们义卖的产品,这样孩子们就可以通过自己的劳动帮助到有需要的医治之家的孩子们实现他们的美好梦想!

We will take vouchers as the currency of the Flea Market which will be for sale at the school gate from 3:30 to 4:00 in Dec 18th, 19th, and 20th. We hope you may participate actively! Welcome to purchase students’ products after 2 o’clock on Dec 24thwith the vouchers in your hands so that students have a chance to help those kids in Shanghai Healing Home realize their beautiful dreams with their own efforts.

下周末将进入数九的季节,祝愿大家身体健康!

It’s getting even colder next week. May you all be in good health.
