The 21st century is the core period of the “Information Age”, and students need to be able to locate, assess, and represent new information quickly. Our school requires each student to have a 7-8in Android-based Tablet to access our digital libraries, use academic apps, and utilize other forms of education technologies. Students are using digital technologies to connect with other students, not only in their country but across the globe, to engage in self-directed learning in areas of personal expertise and interest. We have also added a computer lab to add ICT to our curriculum.

21世纪是“信息时代”的核心时期,学生需要能够快速定位、评估和表达新的信息。我们学校要求每个学生都拥有一个7-8英寸的笔记本电脑,用于访问我们的数字图书馆,使用学术应用程序,并利用其他形式的教育技术。学生正在使用数字技术与其他学生进行交流,不仅是他们所在的国家,而且是与全世界沟通,是在个人专长和兴趣领域进行自我导向性学习。我们还增加了一个计算机实验室,用于我们的ICT课程。

PARENT INVOLVEMENT
家长参与
We hope you will be an active participant in your child’s education and our school community. Please keep track of your child’s assignments and teach them to be responsible. Talk to your child about keeping his or her school desk orderly so papers that need to come home don’t get lost. Teach your child how to use a calendar or personal planner to help stay organized. We also need volunteers to help decorate for school shows, celebrations and for Reading Moms.

我们希望您能积极参与您孩子的教育,投入于我们的学校社区。请关注孩子的作业情况,并教育他们对自己的学习负责。告诉您的孩子应该自己把学校的书桌收拾得井井有条,以免自己的资料遗失。请教会您的孩子如何使用日历或个人时间计划来帮助孩子有效地进行自我管理。我们还需要志愿者,在学校举行庆祝活动时,帮助布置学校活动场地,以及和孩子进行共读活动。
DISCIPLINARY POLICIES
惩罚原则
Please review school rules and school code of conduct with your child. The rules cover expectations for things like student behavior, dress codes, use of electronic devices, and acceptable language. It’s important for your child to know what’s expected at school and that you’ll support the school’s consequences when expectations aren’t met. It’s easiest for students when school expectations match the ones at home, so kids see both environments as safe and caring places that work together as a team.

请和孩子一起回顾学校的规章制度,以及学校的行为准则。这些规则涵盖了对学生行为、着装规范、电子设备的使用,以及可接受的语言等方面的期望。对于您的孩子来说,了解学校对他们的期望很重要。因为当期望没有达到时,您需要支持学校的处理方式,接受学校的处理结果。对学生来说,当学校的期望值与家庭的期望值相符时,学生会更容易实现期望。因此,孩子们会把两个环境都看成是安全的、充满爱心的地方,这两个环境也将共同为孩子成长而努力。
We thank you and hope to have a wonderful year!
我们衷心感谢您,希望您有个美好的一年!

All the Best
此致
敬礼
