BVCS' Culture tour to the Blackhawk Museum on Veterans Day (11/11/2022)
Immense Chinese cultural and historical treasure is right around our neighborhood. Situated in Danville is the Blackhawk Museum, in which the "Into China" Gallery houses the finest handcrafted masterpieces that mirror the country's enormous scale and capture the essence of all that culturally embodies China, past and present.

Educational experience at Bay Valley Chinese School is never confined by the bound of classrooms. In an attempt to immerse students into Chinese culture and broaden their cultural consciousness, we had in prior years organized cultural tours to a number of places. This year, we would like to lead a tour to the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. The "Into China" Gallery is of special interest in this field trip. Below are details about this tour.

  Hot   「秋老虎發威!」
這是中國人用來描述入秋之後,天氣還宛如炎炎夏日般酷熱的形容詞。
今年的中秋節,「秋老虎發威」!
戶外飆破華氏百度高溫,灣谷中文學校教室冷氣全開,啊!好舒服啊!

"Autumn Tiger Flexing its Muscles!"
This is a Chinese idiom used to depict how the Fall weather is kidnapped by the Autumn Tiger, who demonstrates its power by inflicting sweltering heat.
The Autumn Tiger flexed its muscles during the Mid-Autumn Festival this year.
As the outdoor temperatures soared to the 100s range, full-blown air-conditioning kept the classrooms in Bay Valley Chinese School nice and cool. Ah, a comfortable environment for our teachers and students!
