Millburn Chinese School






各位家长,



大家好! 本周日11月19号上午9点中文学校正常上课。上课期间,请在本周前收到邮件并已经核实了名字和学费退款金额的家长,到办公室领取退款支票。

本周日,我们也将迎来《第二届秋之韵中华文化竞赛》写字与作文比赛的展览和评分环节。希望您的孩子已经完成了他们的参赛作品。展览将设在高中餐厅,届时将为每个班级设一块三折的展板,所有孩子的作品都将贴在自己班级的展板上。9:00开始上课的各班将于大概9:30开始展览和评分;其余班级的参赛作品将于大概11:20开始。展览和评分将于12:00结束。

所有到场的家长可以领取一张评分表,评选您心目中每个班级的前三名。我们希望所有家长都可以移步学校餐厅,用您的选票为孩子们学习中文的热情添油加薪。在这里,您可以看到我们年龄最小的小朋友用他们稚嫩的笔“画”出的情趣盎然的象形文字;您可以体会到已经有一些中文基础的学生对方块字的间架结构更游刃有余的把握;您还可以欣赏到年纪更大的孩子们付出很多心力完成的命题作文。能用一门非母语的语言写作,本身就值得喝彩。从这些作文中,您不但可以看到他们对中文 词汇和语法的掌握,对写作技巧的运用,也许更重要的,是从字里行间体会这些跨越两种文化的我们的下一代,对一个问题真实的心声和鲜活的思维角度。而这些, 也许会为您理解并与自己的孩子沟通,打开一扇窗口。请您把孩子送到学校之后,驻足餐厅,领取一张评分表。期待并感谢您的参与。

《第二届秋之韵中华文化竞赛》的第二部分是朗诵/ 演讲比赛,旨在为孩子们提供一个加强口语的机会。班级内部比赛将于本周日12月3日举行,每班按照人数多少推举出2-4名获胜者参加12月10日的校级比赛。校级比赛的优胜者将代表学校参加2018年1月6日在李文斯顿中文学校举办的华夏总校演讲比赛。学前小班、CSL、双双一至五级、双双文化一级的学生将参加朗诵比赛;双双文化二至四级的学生将参加演讲比赛。本周日(11月19日)课上各班老师将布置朗诵演讲比赛的内容。具体通知和评分表已经通过邮件和微信发给大家。请据此进行参赛的准备。学校鼓励所有学生参加比赛,并为所有参赛者准备了小奖品。

另外,本周日中文学校也将举办一期心理健康讲座。

时间:11/19周日10-11:30am
地点:Millburn High School Cafeteria
主讲人:Nancy Kislin

Nancy曾经在微信群做了几次青少年心理健康、Vaping的讲座。她有多年心理咨询的实践,尤其了解本地初高中生的情况。她刚在Millburn,Livingston 等举办过关于Screenager, 13 Reasons Why,青少年酗酒抽烟吸毒器具展示等一系列讲座。欢迎大家踊跃参加。

祝大家周末愉快!

Dear parents,

Our school will open as usual at 9am on Nov 19th, 2017. For parents who have confirmed the name and the amount of tuition refund with us through email, the refund checks are available for pick up in our office during the school hours.

The handwriting and writing portion of the annual Charm of Autumn Chinese Cultural Contest is coming to the voting stage this Sunday (November 19). We hope your kids have completed their masterpieces for the contest. Parents’ voting will take place in the cafeteria where each class will have their own tri-fold board displayed with students’ work. Around 9:30am, works from all classes beginning at 9:00 will be ready for voting. For the remaining classes, students’ works will be displayed after they report to class at 10:55. Voting will last until 12 noon.

Every parent will be provided with a voting chart to record his/her top three choices from each class. We highly recommend that you participate in voting. It’ll be fun to see the writing-as-in-drawing style from the youngest kids, the more mature calligraphy from the older ones, and the Chinese essay writing from the most experienced students in our school. To be able to write in another language is in itself something to be cheered for. It’s more thought provoking to read between the lines and understand the values and perspectives of our cross-culture kids. We value and appreciate your input in the process.

Millburn Institute of Talent will be hosting the oral part of the 2017 Charm of Autumn Chinese Cultural Contest on December 3 (within each class) and December 10 (school level). Students in Preschool, CSL, Shuang Shuang Chinese Level 1-5, and Shuang Shuang Culture Level 1 will each recite or read out a piece of writing based on the topics assigned in each class. Students from Shang Shuang Culture level 2-4 will compete for speech-making. Two to four winners from each class (depending on the size of the class) will represent their respective class at the school level. Winners from the school-level contest from each of the three age groups will represent Millburn Institute of Talent at the 1/6/2018 speech contest hosted by Huaxia Chinese School, of which MIOT is a member school. This coming Sunday (11/19) each teacher will make assignment for the oral contest. Detailed notice and voting chart have been distributed to all families. Please help your kids prepare for their contest accordingly. We would like to see every student participate in the contest and we have prepared prize for all participants.

We will also hold a presentation about mental health care of the youth. Please come to join this event.

Time: 10am-11:30am, Nov 19th
Location: Millburn High School Cafeteria
Presenter: Nancy Kislin

Nancy Kislin: psychotherapist, licensed clinical social worker, certified marriage and family therapist, parenting coach, infidelity expert, meditation teacher, and a professor with over 28 years of experience.

Have a great weekend!
