Dec. 23- Jan. 7 Christmas Break! 聖誕假期!

Dear Parents,
Well done! Zuò dé hǎo! Jal haess-eo! Yoku yatta! Magaling! Bem feito! Godt klaret! Wel gedaan!

We graciously made it to the end of another quarter packed with a variety of learning opportunities. Teachers were industrious as ever and students enjoyed participating in concerts, sport tournaments, excursions, culture trips, and various Christmas projects. Naturally, we
are all looking forward to a well-deserved Christmas vacation. I’m sure your break is already scheduled with fun-filled and leisurely activities. Personally, I look forward to spending time with family, visit some of our long-time favorite places in Taiwan and fill my down time with interesting books and articles. I’m sure many of us will cycle, hike, ski, fly, dine and visit to our hearts’ delight. We pray for rest, rejuvenation and for your family’s safe return.

As you know, this year’s Christmas project focuses on a caring heart and a giving hand. We are amazed at your giving, donating, supporting, blessing and reaching out. What an incredible community! See you on Friday at the Christmas assembly for a big celebration!

Blessings! Zhùfú! Chugbog! Shukufuku! Mga Pagpapala! Bênçãos! Velsignelser! Seëninge!

我們非常感恩地又到了另一個充滿各種學習機會的學季末,老師們辛勤地工作、學生們享受著參與在音樂會、體育比賽、校外教學、文化之旅和各種聖誕節募款專案活動,當然,我們都等待著期待已久的聖誕假期,我相信你們的假期都已安排了許多充滿樂趣和悠閒的活動。對我而言,我期待與家人共度時光,拜訪我們在台灣一直以來最喜歡去的地方,並在空閒時間閱讀些有趣的書籍和文章,相信我們當中很多人將騎自行車、健行、滑雪、飛行、聚餐和拜訪朋友直到我們心中滿足為止,我們禱告求神給予休息、充電、還有家人安全的回國。
如您所知,今年的聖誕節募款專案著重於一顆關懷的心和付出的手,我們很感激您的給予、捐款、支持、祝福和付出,多麼一個棒的社區啊!希望在星期五的聖誕慶祝聚會見到您!
