MAC ANNUAL FUND 馬禮遜年度募款計畫
Each year we ask our parent community to assist the school with some specific items in areas such as classrooms, student activities, and community events. The goal of the Annual Fund is to cultivate a broad-based donor culture among the school’s primary constituents to enhance student learning. Please consider supporting the school by going to our Annual Fund Site and choosing something you would like to give money towards. Some of the items will directly benefit our students in the EMS!
We have greatly appreciated your support in the past and because of your generosity, we continue to make Morrison Academy a better place. Credit card donations can be made here.
每一年我們都會邀請馬禮遜的家長們參與在年度捐款的項目裡,特別針對教室裡的硬體,支持學生們的各樣活動,和社區活動上。年度募款的目的是期許能在學校裡營造一個願意給予的文化,目的是幫助學生們有更好的學習環境。歡迎您到我們的年度捐款網站上勾選您感興趣且願意支持的項目,有一些捐款的項目將直接幫助到我們國中國小部的學生們!我們感謝您一路以來的支持和陪伴,因為您的慷慨給予,馬禮遜美國學校將會持續成長茁壯。若您想使用信用卡進行捐款,請點選這裡, 非常感謝您的參與。

Elementary Library Dance Party 小學部圖書館舞會
Wednesday, October 28 3:30pm to 4:00pm
Recently, the elementary library shelves were all fitted with wheels so we can move them around easily and make space for events in the library. We would like to celebrate by pushing the shelves to the side and having a DANCE PARTY for elementary students after school on the same day as the Storybook Character Parade. Some MS students will lead dances that the students know from PE class. Parents are welcome to join in. Book character costumes are optional but welcomed.
10/28 星期三 下午3:30到4點
下星期三是繪本角色遊行日,我們在同一天的下課後在圖書館也將舉辦一場舞會來一同慶祝,在圖書館裡專屬我們小學部的書櫃在近期都改成了有輪子的書櫃,所以我們可以很輕鬆的調整騰出空間來做活動。我們會請幾位國中生來帶領我們跳舞,舞步會像在體育課學的雷同。歡迎家長們一起來共襄盛舉,您不一定要打扮成繪本的角色一樣也可以來參加喔!
