PROGRESS REPORTS 近程成績
It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the 1st quarter! Progress reports will be posted in PowerSchool today, and parents will be notified by email if their child has received a progress report.
BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB
Would you like to honor your child on their birthday and help the library program as well? You can do this by donating NT$500 to the library and choosing a new library book as your child’s Birthday Book. The cost reflects the average price of new hardback books. A special name plate with your child’s photo, name, and current grade level will be placed in the front of that new library book to commemorate it as your child’s Birthday Book.
This year, we will put the book selection online at: go.mca.org.tw/macbirthdaybookclub
Starting Thursday, September 2 at 9:00am, you can access the Birthday Book Club website and select a Birthday Book Club book for your child. After you choose a book, the library will put a payment envelope in your child’s backpack to take home to you. Please pay within 1 week. The last day for Birthday Book selection will be Friday, September 10.
We will present the Birthday Book selection to your child and they will be the first to check out the new book. They will also receive a card and small gift from the library on their birthday or half-birthday (if their birthday is in the summer). Other students, for as long as the book remains in the library, will be able to see your child’s name and photo in the book after your child has read the book and returned it to the library.
If you would like to participate in this optional event, please choose a book from the website and fill out the form. If you have any questions, please let us know.
MS PE UNIFORMS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
Middle School Parents: All sizes of PE uniforms are in stock. Parents who still need to purchase uniforms for their children may do so from the front office after school. Uniforms will be sold until September 10, 2021.
Any parents planning to volunteer regularly throughout the school year must adhere to school requirements for volunteers. Please read through Procedure 535 if you will be volunteering more than 10 hours per year at school authorized events.
In order to ensure child safety within the school community, all volunteers must complete the following tasks before they begin service:
- Morrison’s Child Safety Training (on-line video)
- Background Check: Apply for a Police Criminal Record Certificate at personal expense or provide one from their own passport country. (The General Manager may assist in the process of applying for a certificate from Taiwan.)
Even if you have completed child safety training in the past, all current volunteers must complete the new training, which involves watching an online video and receiving a completion certificate. The certificate is good for 2 years.
