Important Message from School
五月十九號原本排定是上課日,因收到校區的通知這一天與地主學校的畢業生活動時間衝突,校舍不外借,以至被迫取消所有課程。

關於此事校方感到非常抱歉,但已無法在學期結束之前安排出補課的時間。校方提出補償辦法,將提供每位學生 10 元園遊會餐飲券,在五月二十六號園遊會也就是最後一天上課日,在學校現場發放。學生可用來購買食物、飲品和紀念品,但不折換現金!校方十五年來第一次舉辦大型活動,希望在這個文化園遊會及社區開放日大家玩得開心!

We regret to inform you that classes on May 19 will be cancelled. Recently, the Facilities Rental Department of the School District notified us that there would be a schedule conflict with the graduation event in Charlotte Wood Middle School. Unfortunately, the limited time left in the academic year does not allow us to reschedule any lessons.

Canceling class is a complicated decision that affects students, teachers and families. The administration of Bay Valley Chinese School apologizes for any inconveniences this may have caused.

In order to compensate for your losses, BVCS will provide each student a Carnival Coupon for $10 worth of food and beverages at the 15th Anniversary Carnival on May 26, the last day of school. Such coupons will be passed out at the reception on the day of event. These coupons have no cash value and can only be used to exchange for food, beverage, and souvenirs.

May 26 marks the first school Carnival in our 15 years of history. This special event will be open to the community, where everyone is welcome. Once again, we apologize for the cancellation of class on May 19, and hope that everyone will have a great time at the Carnival.

***Two New Enrichment Classes for school year 2017-2018***

1. 說故事學中文 Learning Chinese Through Stories

適合三年級以上的學生/ Suitable for students above 3rd grade
藉由故事讓小朋友們喜歡聽中文、說中文。課堂老師會依照故事內容,讓孩子用一張紙做出自己的彩繪書,寫出故事中的基本文字。完成後孩子們可自由發揮想像力和創造力,用中文說出彩繪書裡的故事。

This class aims at engaging students' interest in listening and speaking Chinese by means of storytelling. Based on the storyline, the teacher would instruct students to use a piece of paper to make a pop-up picture booklet, and to practice using the core vocabulary that made up the story in their design. At the end, students are encouraged to use their creativity and imagination to tell the story in their own booklets.

2. 兒童文化體驗課Cultural Kaleidoscope for Children
此全新課程適合七歲以上學生,無中文基礎也能夠輕鬆參與。透過豐富多單元課程領略中華文化之美,探索中文的獨特魅力。 運用童謠唱遊延伸語言學習, 體驗太極功夫學習肢體運動。做燈籠學剪紙、編中國結、畫中國水墨畫、寫毛筆字體驗另類藝術的情境。以有趣的方式來認識古老而有活力的中華文化。

Curriculum:
Lasting for the entire academic year, is divided into 4 series of classes: Nursery Rhymes, Chinese Calligraphy & Painting, Tai Chi, and Chinese Crafts Making

Introduction:
No Chinese language skill prerequisite. By means of active participation and hands-on activities, this Cultural Kaleidoscope course, taught by local experts, provides a window into some of the many facets of Chinese cultural traditions, as well as the charm of Chinese language. Nursery rhymes sing-along offers an entertaining and effortless way to develop students' vocabulary. The fundamental techniques associated with Chinese calligraphy and ink-wash painting open up to students the ancient Chinese art forms. The amazingly fluid motions of Tai Chi introduce students to the Chinese concepts of balancing the yin and the yang. Chinese crafts are the part and parcels of Chinese livelihood. Making Chinese crafts such as lanterns, Chinese knots, and paper cutting connect students to the world of Chinese aesthetic beauty. In short, our teachers are holding your children's hands to explore and appreciate the most celebrated aspects of Chinese culture through a myriad of fun activities.
