Week 34 Updates

May 2-6, 2016

Dear Parents,

Open House is finally here! You are cordially invited to this wonderful event with family, friends, and your child. C22 Heroes have been working hard to produce work that showcase their learning in English, Mandarin Language Arts, math, and science. It will be their pleasure to give you a tour of their classroom and tell you about their classwork. :) I understand that this is the first Open House for many of you. I will be sending out a reminder email with more details on Wednesday! :)

Please note that our school has a tradition of touring each classroom the day after Open House. Please try to have your child to arrive to school on time. The tour is scheduled to begin at 9am.

We visited the book fair on Friday and had a preview of the great book selections. For book fair days and hours, please see Principal's Message. Thank you for your attention!

Star of the Day

What: Each student will take turn being the STAR OF THE DAY

Why: -to provide each child an opportunity to share about himself/herself

-to make each child to feel valued (it's THEIR day!)

-to build confidence doing presentation in front of peers

How: All students will be given 3 weeks to work on a poster with fun facts about himself/herself. Then going in number order, each student will take turn being the Star of the Day and present the poster. A handout with requirements and helpful sentence frames was sent home two weeks ago.

When: We will start the presentation beginning the week of April 18. You have the option to bring in the project before the 3 weeks deadline. The child can also bring in the poster on the day that he/she is the star of the day. :)

Principal's Message


1) Better Chinese Online Account

Please CONTINUE to have your child work on Better Chinese reading as part of their daily homework. This is a very valuable resource the school has purchased to help parents in supporting Mandarin learning at home. Once you log-in, you will see the assignment under "Assignment Messages". If you only have access to an iPad, you may download a free application called Puffin Web Browser and it shall allow you to access the BC account.

2) Khan Academy

Please take advantage of Khan Academy as it is a great resource for your child to practice math skills taught in class or challenge with more math concepts. If your child answer more questions correctly, the website will adapt and give harder problems. It will also make the problems easier if the child is struggling with answering them. After enrolling your child to my "class", I will also be able to see his/her progress. If you need specific recommendations or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

In the "add a coach" field, please enter class code 78TY9E

3) Class Facebook and Instagram

Please follow our class on social media to get a glimpse of C22Heroes in actions! It's also another way to connect with one another. You may also share it with friends and family members. :)
