Xin Nian Kuai Le! Welcome to the Year of the Dog.
This week I’d like to announce a new initiative that I am confident will further our partnership. Prior to the CNY break the teachers and I set out to simplify our homework communication platforms so parents are able to find all assignments in one place. It will be good for you to know that all our grades 3-8 students have already successfully tracked their assignments on THIS NEW HW SITE . Also, the system we’re proposing is in its second iteration after we obtained excellent feedback from a small group of parents. Please note that the above link is available on the school’s website by following the screenshot below.
Please take note of the following conventions as you navigate content:
- Teachers will always post HW on the day they assign it. Unless a different date is added in parenthesis, the expected due date is always the following day.
- Team leaders will add major events, field trips, etc. in the side column so all teachers are sensitive to the HW load.
- Posted assignments will always be complete in and of itself. Where students are referred to another location, a working hyperlink will be provided.
- The following hashtags will automatically highlight a cell. #test, #quiz,#assessment. An exclamation mark (!) anywhere in the cell will also work. This will help alert students and parents to the importance of the content.
We sincerely hope this will make it easier for you as a parent to find all your EMS children’s HW in one place. Of course, teachers will continue to use PowerSchool to update grades and communicate missing assignments. Please feel free to communicate your feedback with us.
- 以下標籤會自動強調一個單元格。#test, #quiz, #assessment, 在單元格中任何驚嘆號（！）也會有此作用。這將有助於提醒學生和家長注意內容的重要性。

BEES ON CAMPUS 校區內的蜜蜂
Every year, as spring approaches, our campus turns into a bit of a honey pot. This year the bees are particularly drawn to the trees between the plaza and the EMS sidewalk. Honey bees are mostly harmless, unless one is allergic to bee stings. Our teachers are aware of this situation and have reminded their students to not climb these trees, shake them or throw objects into them. If the bees aren’t agitated, they shouldn’t bother the students.
Furthermore, our general manager has not spotted any nests, which are often found underground. We feel the situation is under control and no additional measures are needed at this point.
Our nurses are checking medical records to see if we have any students who are highly allergic to bees. If you know your child has a bee allergy, it would be helpful to email the clinic at Taichungclinic@mca.org.tw.
Parents, please rest assured that the clinic is equipped to deal with emergencies.
