Dear Parents,
We’ve reached the 6th week of the quarter and it’s time to pause momentarily. The mid-quarter mark serves as a time to alert parents when students’ product grades (academic content) are at the remediation level (K5) or have fallen below 73% (MS). In addition to this general invite from me to visit PowerSchool, our administrative assistants will also send a specific email to you if a teacher submitted a comment to communicate any concerns. (Note: A teacher comment constitutes a progress report.)

The first five weeks of quarter one is probably the hardest grading period of the school year. No grades and/or no comments therefore simply mean we haven’t gathered sufficient data at this point. The quarter one report card will deliver all we promised at the Meet the Teacher Night. For your convenience, here’s my presentation again. I’m more than happy to meet with you to continue to explain our SBE vision. Furthermore, if you have any questions about your child’s progress at this time, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with the teacher.

Respectfully,
Mr. Myburgh

親愛的家長:
我們已經到了本學季的第六週,學期暫告一段落的時刻,此季的成績報告提醒父母假如學生的表現成果(學術內容)處於有待加強(幼稚園到五年級)或低於百分之七十三(中學)時,除了參考PowerSchool之外,如果任何一位老師提交了評語以表達任何疑慮,我們的行政助理還會向您發送一封特定的電子郵件。 (——學習進度報告是由老師的評語集結而成。)

第一學季的頭五個星期可能是一整學年最難評分的時期,因此,沒有成績和/或沒有評語意味著我們目前還沒有收集到足夠的數據,就如我們在「懇親會」所承諾,第一學季的成績單將提供所有的資料。為了方便起見,這裡是我的講稿,我非常樂意跟各位見面,繼續詳細的解說我們SBE的願景您對您孩子的學習進度有任何疑問,我鼓勵您安排與老師會面。
Mr. Myburgh敬上

Moon Festival Celebration from the EMS Chinese Department 中文部中秋節文化活動
Dear Parents,
We are so excited that Moon Festival is coming soon. Are you all ready to celebrate this special holiday with family and friends?

Moon Festival is one of the biggest holidays in Chinese culture. Our Chinese department will continue our tradition to celebrate this special holiday with all students. Since there are so many different types/flavors of mooncakes, we welcome any extra mooncakes donated from Morrison families. You can have your child bring them to their classroom or drop them off at the front office (labeled “EMS Chinese”).  This way, we all get to try different styles of moon cakes and celebrate the holiday on Oct. 3 & 4 together. The Chinese Department will purchase pomelos, a Moon Festival fruit, for each student. We will enjoy the fruit and make some crafts with the fruit. Thanks for your support. Please see the pictures from last year celebration 🙂


親愛的家長:
一年一度的中秋佳節即將到來了!相信您也開始計劃和家人共度美好時光!
中秋節是我們的三大節日之一,今年中文部依然會持續與學生一同慶祝。

為了讓學生在今年也可繼續有中國文化的傳承,我們中文部在此將會教導以及讓學生體驗這特別的中國文化。​由於月餅有許多種口味,歡迎家長家裡有多餘的月餅,請學生帶給各班的老師,或是放置辦公室(標註「EMS中文部」)​,讓學生有機會嚐到各地不同口味的月餅。我們會在十月三、四日​一起享用,同時也彼此祝福。中文部也將購買柚子給每個學生,做柚子相關的手工藝。謝謝各位家長的支持!(附上去年慶祝的相片^_^)
