Dear Parents,
Thank you for attending last week’s Meet-the-Teacher Day event. It was a joy to see so many of you on campus. For those of you who could not make the event or missed my presentation, here is the slide deck (Principal’s Welcome 2020-21). We will be scheduling a Parent Workshop to answer more questions about the Mandarin curriculum.

 With changes to this year’s Meet the Teacher event, I would also like to get some feedback from you for future planning. Please take a moment to fill out this MTTD Survey, as well as the EMS PAC Interest Survey

 Progress reports are going home this Friday. Please be sure to check MasteryConnect and/or PowerSchool for updated information. The beginning of the year is very busy with building learning routines, so classes may not have many standards assessed at this time. If there are specific concerns, your child’s teacher will leave a comment in PowerSchool. The EMS Office will send home a reminder on Friday if your child has a progress report. 

 Have a wonderful week!
Blessings,
Scott Finch

親愛的家長:
非常感謝您參與上週的班親會,很開心那天看到許多的家長來到學校。那天無法來參加班親會或是沒有參與到我的簡報時段的家長可以點此連結來看當天的簡報。針對中文部新的課綱,我們將會擇日舉行說明會來回答家長們的問題。
因著今年度的親師座談會有些微變動,我希望能參考家長們的反饋以便安排日後親師座談會的計畫。煩請家長填寫上週的班親會反饋調查表。同時,也請填寫國中小學家長會意願調查表
學生的學習進度成績單將在這週五寄出。您可以在MasteryConnet/PowerSchool上查看。由於新學期剛開始不久,班級教室常規都需要一些時間來建立並讓學生習慣教室常規。因此,目前學生可能有些科目的學習指標還沒被測試。但是如果學生有特別需要加強的部分,老師將會在PowerSchool 上給予評語並提醒學生需要加強的部分。若是您的孩子已經有一些測試的成績了,這週五您將會收到我們國中小學辦公室寄給您的學習進度成績單。
祝有美好的一週!
方校長
