  • Letter to Parents——Mar. 8th, 2012

    Date: 2012.03.08 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 684

    Dear Parents,

    Many thanks to all the people who responded my letters.  Your comments are so positive and encouraging.  I appreciated them and would like to give my gratitude to all of you!  Your comments made up of the best part of my blog!

    Continuing the last month topic——supporting education, I would like to bring up a NCLS project of supporting china education.  A group of people including me organizes a few of activities each year to raise a fund to support Chinese students who have financial difficulties to pursue their academic achievements in China. This project also includes sending NCLS students to a high school in China to experience Chinese student life and teaching English in a Chinese school.  I like this project.  I came from China and joined the graduate school in USA after finished college in China.  I experienced the difficult time periods during the school years.  If someone can give a hand at the needed points,  students with a bright potential would not be drowned in the family financial turmoils and would become a dependable backbone of society.  Thinking of this, I have been a volunteer in the project group in the past two years and actively participated in all the fund-raising events such as talent shows, dance parties, yard sales and book fairs.

    Currently in this month, the project group is organizing the following events:

    March 10th, dance party, BC

    March 18th,  Yard Sale, NCLS

    March 25th, Yard Sale, NCLS

    I hope that all the teachers, parents, family members, and staff can be involved in these events. I distributed the paper copies of the yard sale announcement in January to parents in NCLS and the principal sent the announcement through email to school wide teachers, staff, and parents most recently.

    Here is the Announcement of 2012 Yard Sale:
