Newsletter 12 September 2014

各位包校集体成员,

尽管本周只有4个上学日,校园生活还是相当紧张忙碌的。通过选举,包校的学生会终于成立了。所有的学生会成员都是由学生自己推选出来的,这些孩子们已经在积极思考如何才能传递广大学生的心声并通过自己的行动去影响和发展学校。他们在全校集会上大方自信的谈吐给大家留下了深刻的印象。

我谨代表包校全体员工向各位家长和学生表示衷心的感谢,是你们让今年的教师节如此特别。家校协力会的献花、周三中午的百家宴以及我们收到的来自学生和家长的贴心贺卡都让我们觉得能成为包校一员是多么的幸运。我们的工作有了您的支持才更有意义。

感谢出席本周1-2年级家长信息会的所有家长们。借着此次机会,家长们也选出了各自班级的班代。他们会将大家的想法和观点带到家校协力会会议中进行探讨。随着时间的推移,相信我们会有更多机会可以见面交流。

五年级的学生及老师将于下周前往南北湖进行露营,我们也为他们感到激动和兴奋!本周三,体育组老师们组织了五年级露营信息分享会,为家长们介绍了相关的活动安排。我们希望孩子们都能安全、尽兴地体验即将到来的探险活动,也希望他们到时候能与我们分享这一周的经历。

感谢大家支持“不戴校帽,不在户外玩耍”的政策。现在,我们的学生都已经能严格执行这项规定了。

祝您周末愉快!

放学后请勿在校园玩耍

放学时孩子从教室出来后,请家长直接把他们接回家。我们需要保持武定西路的交通顺畅,因此请勿将车停在该路段上等候玩耍的孩子。学校操场上的活动设施在15:50以后将不对学生开放。请家长也不要长时间与老师们攀谈聊天,这是为了保证孩子放学后的监护和安全。

晚留看管在东楼2220教室

如您不得不在下午4点以后来接孩子,请前往东楼2220晚留看管教室。我们希望家长能理解,该服务是为了帮助那些因交通状况而晚到的家长,我们不是为孩子在放学后留校做作业而设置此服务的。如您需要让孩子放学后留在校内写作业,请报名拓展课的“作业俱乐部”。感谢您的理解和配合。

家庭数学派对

家庭数学派对由加州大学伯克利分校劳伦斯科学馆发起,是一项让家长和孩子一起学习数学的活动,强调培养孩子们对数学的自信,通过老师与家长的共同反馈来鼓励孩子。在包校的家庭数学派对上,家长和孩子在傍晚时候一起参与数学活动、做游戏和分享美食。家庭数学派对将于本月陆续开始。请记下您孩子所在班级的派对时间,尽量安排前来参加—— 派对会十分有趣!

来自家校协力会的消息

9月16日下午2点到4点,我们会在学校西楼1104会议室召开新学期的首次PTA会议,希望各班的班代和年代务必出席,同时,我们也欢迎其他家长出席。本次会议的议题如下:

-       学费安排

-       年度基金

-       学生报告卡

-       校长信息

来自图书馆的信息

亲爱的家长,

阅读是我们家中最受欢迎的一项家庭活动。每天睡前,我和我女儿的讲故事时间都是一天中最让我们期待的时光。当然,购书就是我们的第二大爱好了。在此,我将把贝克图书俱乐部介绍给您和您的孩子,希望您也能和您的孩子一起享受家庭阅读的乐趣。

今天,您的孩子将会非常兴奋地将贝克图书俱乐部的图书目录带回家,选择您孩子和您(如果您和我一样也是一个儿童读物爱好者的话)喜爱的书籍,并在线完成订单。这样您无需担忧孩子在带钱去学校的过程中将它们遗失。如果您的孩子不小心遗失了订购目录,没有关系,您同样可以在网站上找到电子版目录,网址: http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2

本次订购的截止日期为2014年9月26日。特别提醒,您所订购的书籍将会在6周内送达学校,并且图书馆不代为收取任何贝克图书俱乐部的订购书款。

祝您在此次订购中有所收获!

手足口病

本周学校发现一例患手口足病的学生,根据学校的规章制度,也为了避免交叉感染,该班级已遵循特殊安排进行每日的学习与活动。本星期以来我们每天都测量体温、做好监察工作,希望这仅是一例个案,学校集体能尽早恢复常规运作。

学校已加强了教室消毒、开窗通风等工作。若您的孩子近期手、足、口腔等部位的皮疹或疱疹症状及时医院就诊,并告知班主任和校医,校医联系电话:61671999-1-8131/8132。

平时做到以下几点:

1. 保持良好的个人及环境卫生,勤洗手。

2. 注意饮食卫生,防止饮食被肠道病毒污染。不喝生水,不吃生冷食物。均衡饮食、适量运动、充足休息,避免过度疲劳。

3. 每天开窗通风数次,保持室内空气新鲜;

4. 尽量不带孩子到人多拥挤、空气污浊的场所,减少被感染的机会。

红十字少儿住院基金

根据市教委、物价局规定,学校将统一为学生代办代收医疗保险——“红十字少儿住院基金”。本学年开始不再在学期开始时统一征收杂费,因此该保费需要家长另外支付。星期二是学校发放书面通知的日子,由于提交回执的截止日期紧迫,给家长预留填写的时间较短反而不利于我们回收表格,因此我们将于今天发放通知,请您注意查收。该保险的具体内容请参见附件中的文件。

Moodle:查看每周学习内容

Moodle是什么?

Moodle是一个课程管理系统(CMS)-也称为一个学习管理系统(LMS)或虚拟学习环境(VLE)。包玉刚实验学校的Moodle网站提供每周7天,每天24小时的在线服务,它也有密码保护。每个学生都提供个人“登录”。父母可以使用相同的登录名和登录密码来追踪孩子的功课。每个班级都有自己的Moodle页面,用于递交完成的作业和学习进程的调整。即便学生没有来学校参加学习,他们也能使用Moodle来跟上每一个课程的进度。

我怎么查看每周学习内容呢?

遵循以下简单步骤:

第一步:点击以下链接来登录Moodle

http://moodle.ykpaoschool.cn/login/index.php

第二步:输入您的孩子的学号作为用户名并输入密码

第三步:点击班级

第四步:点击每周学习内容

我们会把密码于9月16日(周二)张贴在学生的家庭作业日志上,该系统将于916日恢复使用

年度基金

去年在包校家长的无私支持下,年度基金第一年取得了非常大的成功。在校家庭中有近69%参与了年度基金,共募款人民币514万元,远远超越200万元的募集目标。这让我们非常感动与骄傲,衷心感谢每一位的支持、信任和无私付出。

上一个学年所募集的资金已经切实帮助学校开展了8个领域的26个项目。接下来的几周时间里,我们将和大家逐一分享各项目的进展情况及取得的成果。本周,我们将为大家介绍图书馆发展以及校园环境优化这两个项目。

1、图书馆发展

  • 图书馆是包校学习的核心场所之一,也是学生们最喜爱的设施之一。我们在2014年暑假对小学部图书馆进行了扩建,使学生们能够拥有更多的空间来享受阅读,也为教师们创造了查阅参考资料的区域。同时,还为小学部图书馆购买了探索课程相关书籍以及英语学科教学资料等。
  • 上学年,年度基金还支持了中学部黄秀英纪念图书馆的持续发展。着重增加了非小说类图书的馆藏,从2014年1月至今,新增入库书籍5409册,其中小说类2090册,非小说类3319册,英文书籍占一半以上。
  • 读书周期间,我们还有幸邀请到了两位知名作家Sarah Brennan女士和沈石溪先生访问小学部,与学生零距离接触,一起分享了很多有趣的故事和想法。

2、校园环境优化

  • 由于上海频繁遭遇雾霾天气,为避免空气污染对包校学生及教职员工的健康造成伤害,年度基金在原有基础上,利用捐款超额部分增加了校园环境优化的项目,及时为中小学校区配备了空气净化器。

-     小学部已安装77台空气净化器,覆盖了小学部所有教室、办公室、体育馆、图书馆、礼堂和走廊。

-     中学部已安装296台空气净化器,覆盖中学部所有宿舍和教室、实验室、教师办公室、食堂、学生中心等。

-     根据实时监测,中小学校区内的空气质量明显优于校外,取得了显著成果(6月的18个工作日中,校内空气94%为优,6%为良;同期上海市读数6%为优,44%为良,22%为轻度污染,28%为中度污染)。

  • 暑假期间,年度基金还为松江校区引进了具备世界先进工艺的水质净化系统,工程已于8月中完工。此次水质改造项目采用了全球领先的专业水处理设备及系统制造公司Pentair。针对学校的具体情况对原有水泵房中水质作了如下处理:

-     多介质过滤器滤除原水带来的细小颗粒、悬浮物、胶体、藻类等杂志。

-     活性炭去除原水中有机物及游离氯及金属离子等。

-     紫外线消毒在不使用任何化学药物的情况下杀灭水或空气中所有的细菌病毒。

-     精密过滤器截留水中细微颗粒以及防止细小微粒及杀灭细菌体进入产水系统,确保产水颗粒物完全达标。根据8月末的检测结果,中学部的水质在浑浊度、细菌总数及总大肠杆菌指标上,均明显优于市政自来水及净化水标准

来自音乐组的信息

除钢琴俱乐部外,所有的音乐活动现在都已开课。提醒所有学习木管以及铜管乐器的学生,管乐团训练将于每周三下午16:00-17:00在东楼三楼合奏室2进行。管乐团面向学习管乐器的学生开放(例如:笛子、单簧管、双簧管、萨克斯、小号、长号等等),但加入管乐团的前提条件是学生对该乐器的演奏已超过初级水平。

从本学期开始,周五合唱团将取代原先的周二及周六合唱团,所有喜欢唱歌的学生都可以报名。排练地点是西楼五楼的礼堂 , 周五合唱团也将参与校音乐会的演出。想要参加周五合唱团的学生无需面试,每周五中午直接去礼堂参加就可以了。

钢琴俱乐部

由于之前负责钢琴俱乐部的张洪燕老师休产假,因此有一些信息断档,大家对于钢琴俱乐部是什么样的俱乐部都有些困惑,也不清楚面试流程,许多学生在没有准备的情况下就参加了面试。在看了面试结果以后,我们决定再给学生们一次机会展现自己真正的实力。另外,我们发现有些学生在没有学过钢琴的前提下也报名参加了钢琴俱乐部的甄选。

钢琴俱乐部并非是让学生学习弹奏钢琴的小组 。之前没有学过钢琴的学生是不能够参加的。重新安排的甄选将由几部分组成:学生们将要弹奏一小段自己已经学过的曲子,并且接受一段识谱测试,然后将会被问及一些钢琴学习的经历。

音乐组将会在下周三及周四中午重新安排面试。对此造成的不便,我们深表歉意。综合考虑下来,我们觉得这是最公平的解决方案。

周六音乐项目也将于本周六全面启动(913日)

初级中国民乐团                      09:00 – 10:00

包校足球大师

让我们祝贺上个周末参加在上海瑞可碧橄榄球运动俱乐部举行的上海大师足球锦标赛的全体包校家长和友人!广大教师和家长群体的参与也让本次大赛精彩异常。感谢参加比赛的每一个人,我们也希望该赛事能成为包校的传统活动。

校队甄选甄选时间延长

自校队成员甄选活动开始,各年级同学们就对此表现出了极大的热情和兴趣,我们很高兴地向大家宣布,我们将延长运动队的甄选期限。有兴趣参加甄选的同学可以抓紧这几周的午休时段和其他相关时段进行训练和选拔。总教练会根据以下条件挑选参加即将到来的各项赛事:

  1. 准时出席各项训练并有良好的出勤率
  2. 态度积极并有团队合作精神
  3. 具有一定能力和技术水平

游泳课

如果学生不能上体育课或游泳课,则需要提交医生开具的病假单或父母的请假信。根据包校政策,如果学生能来校学习,这意味着他/她有能力完成各学科的学习,包括游泳课。如果学生应咳嗽或感冒而无法参加游泳课的话,他/她应当在家休养,其原因有二:A) 有助于学生尽快恢复健康 B) 减少病菌传染给其他学生的机会。这对其他学生和家长也非常公平。只有当学生骨折或出现类似严重的状况时才可以不用上游泳课。我们是老师,同时也为人父母,我们应当在任何情况下都保持公正公平并坚持合理的原则。因此,请不要把因病而不能参加游泳课的学生送来上学。

非常感谢您的支持!

2014-2015学年第一学期足球队

我们计划建立一支一年级球队,并在二至四年级各建两支球队,此外,在五年级建立11岁以下年龄段球队并集合一支拥有杰出球员的11岁以下年龄段球队。

以上一至四年级的代表队将参加周日在上海美国学校举行的’Sport for Life’足球比赛,比赛时间为上午10点中午,比赛日期为:10月19日、11月2、9、23日和12月7日。

坚持参与常规训练的学生将受邀参加比赛,赛事开始前,学校将派发统一队服。

今年的比赛

我们将为每个年级指派一位主教练并希望每个年级都能有20-24名球员(第一学期里一年级的要求例外)。这也就意味着每个年级有两支队伍。主教练将负责一支球队,我们仍需要帮手来负责同年级里的另一支球队。在此,我提议有兴趣的家长踊跃报名来支持我们的学生们。除了一年级外,二、三、四年级各需要两位志愿者家长合作担任教练一职。一年级在第一个赛季只有一支球队,因此待第二个赛季时,我们才需要两位一年级志愿者家长。

如果第一学期的五个比赛日您都能坚持带队的话,请联系您孩子所在年级的家校协力会代表。欲知更多详情,您也可以发电邮给Mike Young老师,他的邮件地址是michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn

游泳队

由于包校学生游泳水平的不断提升,我们推行了一套行之有效的流程来帮助我们选拔有潜力的选手。

第一步:游泳老师在游泳课上挑选资质较好或非常有潜力的学生去参加其所在年级团队体育活动时段的游泳训练

第二步:游泳老师袁斌会趁团队体育活动训练的时候观察学生表现并挑选出游泳能手参加游泳晨训

第三步: Johnny教练会在游泳晨训时负责观察并最终挑选出合适人选加入包校游泳队。游泳队成员每周需要参加2次游泳晨训,具体日子要视家长们的时间而定。常规训练课可确保学生有足够的运动量以让他们有最佳的竞技状态。不能坚持常规训练的学生需将校队名额让给其他同学。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Although it has only been a four day week, we have extremely busy. We have now elected our Year 5 Student Council. All members were chosen by their peers and they are already working to consider how they might influence and develop the school through their actions and by representing the ‘voice’ of the wider student body. The easy confidence with which the students explained this to the whole school this week was very impressive.

On behalf of all members of the staff I would like to thank you and the students for making Teachers Day such a special one. The presentation of flowers by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the staff lunch provided on Wednesday, along with the kind and thoughtful messages we received from students and parents remind us how lucky we are to be part of the Y K Pao school community. Our work is so much more rewarding because of the support we receive from you.

Thank you to all parents who attended the Year 1 and 2 Information Evening this week. We hope that you found it a useful forum and that you were able to elect your class representative who can reflect your views to the Parent Teacher Association. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet with you as the year progresses.

We are very excited for our Year 5 students (and their teachers) who will be attending the Year 5 trip to Nan Bei Hu Lake next week. We held an information evening on Wednesday to hear about the planned activities. We look forward to reporting back on how the week goes and we wish them well with the adventures that await them.

Thank you for supporting our ‘No Hat No Play’ routine. Our students, almost without exception, have adapted to this very well.

Have a good weekend.

No playing after school

Please take you child home directly after they come down from the classroom. We need to keep the traffic moving on West Wuding Road so please do not stay while your child plays on the equipment. The playing facilities on the school grounds are not open to students after 3:50pm. For student safety, parents please do not talk with the teachers for a long time and do make sure that your child is well supervised.

Late supervision in Room 2220 East Building

If you arrive later than 4pm to pick up your child you will find him/her in Room 2220 of the East Building. Please understand that this service is only there to support those parents who are bit late due to the traffic situation, it is not homework time or a facility for students to stay after school. If you want your child to finish his/her homework at school after school is over, s/he can attend homework club, provided through the after school Enrichment Programme.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Family Maths

Family Maths was started by the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley. It is a programme that focuses on parents and children doing maths together – the emphasis being on building the child’s confidence with maths and receiving encouraging feedback from both teachers and parents. On Family Maths evenings at YK Pao School parents and children take part in maths activities, play maths games and share food. The first Family Maths evenings begin in September. Please make a note of the dates for your child’s class and make every effort to come along – they are so much fun!

Message from PTA

The first PTA meeting of the year will be held at 14:00-16:00 on 16th September in the Conference Room 1104. All class reps and year reps are expected to attend the meeting and we welcome parents who are interested as well. The agenda of this meeting is followed as:

-       Fees Arrangement

-       Annul Fund

-       Report Card

-       Principal Corner

 

Message from the Library

Dear Parents

Reading is one of the most beloved family activities in my house. The story time my daughter and I spend together before bedtime is always the highlight of the day. Shopping for books is our second favourite. Now, we invite you and your little ones to enjoy the fun together with our Baker Book Club!

Please share your child’s excitement when s/he brings you a Baker Book Club catalogue. You are able to choose your child’s (or your, if you are a big children’s book fan like me) next favourite book(s) together and place an order ONLINE! No need to worry about the lost money on the way to school or on the playground. If, unfortunately, your little one has lost the catalogue, thanks to the technology, you are still able to read the e-catalogue at: http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2

The deadline for placing your book order is September 26, 2014. Please be reminded that your order will arrive at YK Pao in approximately 6 weeks, and that the Library does NOT take money from your child(ren) for Baker Book Club.

Happy Book Shopping!

Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease (HFMD)

We have had one case of Hand Foot and Mouth Disease and so according to school policies the class has been working by themselves and not mixing with other students. We have also been checking everyone’s temperature when they arrive at school. We hope this is an isolated case and we can get back to normal soon.

The school has strengthened its work on disinfection and ventilation in classrooms. If your child contracts red rashes on their hands, feet or inside their mouth, please take him/her to the hospital for medical attention. Please also inform your child’s class teacher and school nurse at 61671999 -1- 8131/ 8132.

To help prevent contracting the disease, please:

1. Maintain personal sanitation and hygiene; wash your hands often with liquid soap.

2. Pay attention to food hygiene to avoid gastro-intestinal viruses. Do not drink unboiled or unfiltered water. Do not eat raw food or food that has been frozen. Eat a balanced, nutritious diet, take proper exercise, and avoid becoming overtired.

3. Open a window throughout the day to allow ventilation.

4. Avoid possible exposure to infection by not taking your child to crowded public places.

Red Cross Hospitalization Foundation

In accordance with the regulations of the Shanghai Education Committee and the Shanghai Price Bureau, the School will be allowed to collect fee and purchase the insurance called “Red Cross Hospitalization Foundation” for students. Parents should make a personal contribution to this insurance policy as the school no longer collects miscellaneous fees at the beginning of each semester. Although Tuesday is designated as Notice Day for distributing hard-copy notices to parents, it will be a rush for parents if we issue the notice out next Tuesday, so we will hand them out today. Please check it and refer to the attached for details.

Moodle: Accessing Weekly Outlines

What is Moodle?

Moodle is a Course Management System (CMS) – also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). While the YKPS Moodle Site is available 24/7 on the Internet, it is also password-protected. Each student has an individual “login”. Parents can use the same login to keep track of their student’s classwork. Each YKPS class has its own Moodle page, used for curriculum delivery and assignment scheduling. Even when students miss school, they are able to use Moodle to stay current with what is happening in each of their classes.

How do I find weekly outlines?

Follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Log onto Moodle by going here: http://moodle.ykpaoschool.cn/login/index.php

Step 2: Enter your child’s student number as user name and the password

Step 3: Click on a class.

Step 4: Click on the Weekly Outline.

The password will be posted on Homework Dairy on 16th of September for your reference and the system will be back on service on September 16th as well.

Annual Fund

With the generous support from parents, our first Annual Fund was launched with great success. Together, we raised a total of RMB 5.14million, which far exceeded our original target of RMB 2 million. We saw a participation rate of 68.8% from current families, which was extremely heartwarming for the School. We commemorated the launch of the Annual Fund with a remarkable first year, and this could not have been done without your generous donations.

In the past school year, the Annual Fund has substantially help the School in supporting 26 projects in 8 areas. We are very happy to share with you the progress of each project and the results achieved in the coming weeks. This week we will update you on two areas: Library Development and Environmental Quality Measures.

1. Library Development

  • The libraries are the heart of learning at YK Pao School and are our students’ favorite place. With the growing collection of books and heavy usage, the Primary School Library was expanded in the summer of 2014. The newly designed library will allow students to read in a more spacious atmosphere as well as allow for the creation of a teacher reference area. The Annual Fund also supported the purchase of more EU books and English teaching resources.
  • The Annual Fund also supported the continued development of the Huang Sue Ing Memorial Library collection with a focus on the non-fiction collection. From January 2014 to date, 5,409 books have been purchased, including 2,090 fiction books and 3,319 non-fiction books. More than half of these new books are English books.
  • For Book Week 2014, we were very lucky to have two well-known authors visit YK Pao School, Mrs. Sarah Brennan and Mr. Shixi Shen. Both authors shared many stories and ideas with our students, and took the time to sign a number of their books for our school library.

2. Environmental Quality Measures.

  • Due to the frequent hazy weather in Shanghai, with the support of The Annual Fund, we have equipped both campuses with air purifiers to minimize air pollution and potential health damage.

-     The Annual Fund was used to purchase 77 air purifiers for all classrooms, offices, the gym, library, and hallways and corridors at the Primary School.

-     296 air purifiers were purchased for all classrooms, dormitories, labs, offices, cafeteria and student center at the Secondary School.

-     According to real-time monitoring, air quality at both campuses has seen significant improvement. (Attachment: AQI distribution of air quality readings in June 2014)

  • During the summer holiday, the Annual Fund supported the installation of a state-of-the-art water purification system at the Secondary Division campus. The project was finished in the middle of August. This water purification project adopted one of the world’s leading water treatment equipment and systems manufacturer, Pentair. According to the specific conditions of our campus, we made the following changes within the water pump house:

-     Multi-media filters to allow for the filtration of tiny particles, suspended solids, colloid, algae and other impurities in the water

-     Activated carbon to remove organic matter and to free chlorine and metal ions that was in the water

-     Ultraviolet disinfection to eradicate all bacteria in the water or air without using any chemicals

-     Precision filters to intercept the fine particles in the water and to prevent them from entering the water production system, to ensure that the water completely reaches the desired standards. According to test result at the end of August, campus water has been largely improved above the water quality standards of municipal tap water and purified water.

Message from the Music Department

Except for Piano Club, all activities are now up and running. A reminder to all WIND and BRASS players that WIND ENSEMBLE takes place on Wednesdays from 4pm until 5pm in Ensemble Room 2 in the Music Department, East Building. This ensemble is open to students who are learning a wind or brass instrument (e.g. flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, trumpet, euphonium, trombone etc.). Students do however need to know the basic notes before joining.

This year, FRIDAY CHOIR replaces the former Tuesday and Saturday choirs and is open to anyone who likes to sing. The rehearsals take place in the Auditorium and the choir takes part in the major school concerts. Students do not need to audition, they just need to turn up.

Piano Club

With Ms Carol being away, there has been some confusion as to what Piano Club is and what students have to do for the audition. As a result, many students turned up to their audition unprepared. Looking through the results of the audition, it was decided that we would give students another chance to show what they can do. It was also clear that some students have not learned the piano before.

Piano club is not a club to join for piano lessons. Students who have not learnt the piano will not be able to join. The re-audition will consist of the student playing a part of a piece that they have learnt, a short piece of sight reading and a basic interview about their piano playing.

The Music Department will reallocate times for next Wednesday and Thursday lunchtimes and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We feel that this is the fairest solution to all concerned.

Saturday Music Programme starts this Saturday (13th September):

Percussion Club                    09:00 – 10:00

Beginner Chinese Ensemble           09:00 – 10:00

Chinese Ensemble                10:00 – 11:00

Message from PE Department

YKPS Masters Football

Congratulations to the Parents and friends of YKPS who participated in the Shanghai Master’s Football Tournament last weekend at Shanghai Rugby Club. It was a fantastic event with participation from a great range of YKPS teachers and parents. Thank you to all who took part, this will hopefully become a tradition in our YKPS Community.

School Team Tryouts – Extended

Due to incredible interest and enthusiasm from all age groups in the recent weeks of tryouts, we are delighted to announce all tryout periods for all the school teams have been extended. This means any student who tried out for any school team during recent weeks, is welcome to participate and practice in any school team during the lunchtime and before school training sessions. The Head Coach will then choose their teams for the upcoming tournaments and matches based on:  1. Attendance and punctuality at these training sessions. 2. Attitude and cooperation. 3. Ability and Skill level.

Swimming Classes

If a student cannot participate in PE class or swimming class, a note from a doctor or parent is required. Our YKPS policy is if a student is in school, then that student is expected to swim. If a student has a cough or a cold and is unable to swim, then please keep him / her at home for two reasons: A) to recover good health and B) to minimise infecting other students with their sickness. This is fair and just for all other parents and students. Only in the event of a broken limb or something serious of that nature we shall excuse a student. We as teachers are also parents and we shall exercise fairness and common sense at all times, but sending your child to school when unfit to swim is not reasonable.

Many thanks for your support on this matter

Football Teams Semester 1 2014 / 2015

We are planning to have one team in Year 1, 2 teams at Year 2, 2 teams at Year 3, 2 teams at Year 4 and the YKPS Under 11 Team for Year 5 and any other outstanding players.

The above representative teams from Year 1 to Year 4 play in the Sunday Sport For Life Competitions held at Shanghai American School from 10 am to midday on the following five dates: Sunday October 19, November 2, 9, 23 and the final date on December 7.

Students that practice regularly will be invited to play and will be given uniforms closer to the starting date.

Matches for the Year

A Head Coach for each Year Group will be appointed and we hope to have 20 – 24 students per Year (with the exception of Year 1 in Semester 1). This would mean two teams at each age group. The Head Coach will take one team, but we need help for the second team. This is where I am asking the parents to step forward and support us. Rather than bring in coaches who have no connection with the students, I am asking for two parents per age group to join to run one team. That means two parents from Year 4, two parents from Year 3, two parents from Year 2 and none as yet from Year 1 as there will be only one team until season two, when we shall need two parents.

I would ask you to contact the PTA rep from your child’s Year Group if you are able to commit to 5 Sunday mornings in Semester 1 to help run a team in which your child will be playing. If you would like to know more please email me on michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn and I can give you more details.

Swimming Team

As our standard of swimming continues to rise, we have piloted and had success with the following steps for selection to the YKPS Swim Team for Primary Students.

1 – In swimming class time, the teacher notices students with ability or potential. These students are invited to Team Sports Swimming during curriculum time.

2 – The students in Team Sports Swimming Practice will be put through their paces by Teacher Yuan Bin. The most able will be invited to join the Early Morning Swimming Practice.

3 – During the Early Morning Swimming Practice, Coach Johnny casts his eye over the students and he will select the students most appropriate for the YKPS Swim Team. All students will be expected to attend 2 morning Trainings per week (days up to you as parents depending on your commitments). With this regular practice our students will get enough “swimming kilometres” per week to be competitive. Students who do not attend regularly will be left out of the swim team and we shall invite replacements.

Some additional dates for the older students in teams:

Newsletter 05 September 2014

各位包校集体成员,

这一周真是愉快的一周!管弦乐团、合唱团、和声小合唱的成员甄选活动正如火如荼地进行中,体育组的老师们也在为学校积极挑选有意愿并合适的学生加入足球、游泳、排球、曲棍球、无板篮球等团队,校园里热闹非凡。此外,我们五年级的学生本周也在紧锣密鼓地筹备着学生会的选举事宜。今天,竞选学生们热情洋溢地表述了自己对学生会工作的想法和见解并卯足了劲儿为自己拉票。孩子们对事物的认识和观点以及他们的演讲水平都让人印象深刻,我们再一次为他们卓越的能力、一流的口才和高情商而感到折服。下周,我们会公布最终当选学生会成员的学生名单。

下周,我们将举行一、二年级家长信息会和五年级南北湖露营活动的信息介绍会,我们期待到时与各位家长会面。此外,本学年的第一场家校协力会会议也将于近期召开。

我们祝愿所有代表包校参加本周末在浦东举行的足球活动的家长和员工们好运。感谢Mike Young老师和体育部门的积极努力,是他们促成了此次活动最终成形,同时,我们也要感谢家长们慷慨地支付了报名费和队服的费用。

学校规定假期外的学生请假制度

由于包玉刚集体成员有着不同的国际背景,一些家长会在学期中给学生请假,并要求学校提供额外的作业。如需请假,请参考以下程序:

1) 家长如需为孩子请病假,请:

早上8点之前发电邮给班主任老师,并抄送给校医丁琳:lin.ding@ykpaoschool.cn,或者如果你无法   登陆到互联网,请:8:30之前打电话到学校前台(021-61671999)

2) 家长若在学期中为孩子请事假,须以书面形式向校长提出申请。校长将以书面形式答复准假或不准假。将于放假前最后一天发放。

另请留意,每一学年学生的事假天数最高限额为6天。超出6天的事假将被作为未被批准的事假记录在学生报告卡上。

3) 如果学生请三天或以上病假,学校将尽力根据家庭要求为其提供家庭作业,帮助其跟上班级学习进度。其它任何原因的请假,学校不负责为其提供家庭作业,但会通过Moodle给家长提供周概要。

4) 关于请假的补考政策

缺席外部测试:无论学生因何种原因请假而缺席正规的外部测试,将没有补考机会,也没有成绩,老师将做缺考处理。

缺席内部测试:

如果学生因病假或因经校长允准的事假缺席内部总结性测试如期中/期末测试,只要在请假后一周内返校,即可进行补测。而一周以上的请假恕不再补测。

如果学生因未经允准的事假而造成缺席任何内部总结性测试,则将没有补考机会。

以上政策也可在家庭作业日志的第七页找到,供您参阅。

来自家委会的信息

在9月11日和22日家长信息会上,我们将进行班代选举。 班代主要的职责是起到家长和老师沟通的桥梁作用,特别是要寻求一些共性的要求和认知。

具体的工作如,建立微信群,参加家委会月度会议,每学期组织一次班级活动等。良好的班级氛围一定有助于孩子们健康快乐的成长,希望每个班级都能选举出优秀的班代。

Moodle:查看每周学习内容

Moodle是什么?

Moodle是一个课程管理系统(CMS)-也称为一个学习管理系统(LMS)或虚拟学习环境(VLE)。包玉刚实验学校的Moodle网站提供每周7天,每天24小时的在线服务,它也有密码保护。每个学生都提供个人“登录”。父母可以使用相同的登录名和登录密码来追踪孩子的功课。每个班级都有自己的Moodle页面,用于递交完成的作业和学习进程的调整。即便学生没有来学校参加学习,他们也能使用Moodle来跟上每一个课程的进度。

我怎么查看每周学习内容呢?

遵循以下简单步骤:

第一步:点击以下链接来登录Moodle

http://moodle.ykpaoschool.cn/login/index.php

第二步:输入您的孩子的学号作为用户名并输入密码

第三步:点击班级

第四步:点击每周学习内容

我们会把密码于9月16日(周二)张贴在学生的家庭作业日志上,该系统将于9月16日恢复使用。

2014-2015学年第一学期足球队

我们计划建立一支一年级球队,并在二至四年级各建两支球队,此外,在五年级建立11岁以下年龄段球队并集合一支拥有杰出球员的11岁以下年龄段球队。

以上一至四年级的代表队将参加周日在上海美国学校举行的’Sport for Life’足球比赛,比赛时间为上午10点中午,比赛日期为:10月19日、11月2、9、23日和12月7日。

坚持参与常规训练的学生将受邀参加比赛,赛事开始前,学校将派发统一队服。

今年的比赛

我们将为每个年级指派一位主教练并希望每个年级都能有20-24名球员(第一学期里一年级的要求例外)。这也就意味着每个年级有两支队伍。主教练将负责一支球队,我们仍需要帮手来负责同年级里的另一支球队。在此,我提议有兴趣的家长踊跃报名来支持我们的学生们。除了一年级外,二、三、四年级各需要两位志愿者家长合作担任教练一职。一年级在第一个赛季只有一支球队,因此待第二个赛季时,我们才需要两位一年级志愿者家长。

如果第一学期的五个比赛日您都能坚持带队的话,请联系您孩子所在年级的家校协力会代表。欲知更多详情,您也可以发电邮给Mike Young老师,他的邮件地址是michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn

游泳队

由于包校学生游泳水平的不断提升,我们推行了一套行之有效的流程来帮助我们选拔有潜力的选手。

第一步:游泳老师在游泳课上挑选资质较好或非常有潜力的学生去参加其所在年级团队体育活动时段的游泳训练

第二步:游泳老师袁斌会趁团队体育活动训练的时候观察学生表现并挑选出游泳能手参加游泳晨训

第三步: Johnny教练会在游泳晨训时负责观察并最终挑选出合适人选加入包校游泳队。游泳队成员每周需要参加2次游泳晨训,具体日子要视家长们的时间而定。常规训练课可确保学生有足够的运动量以让他们有最佳的竞技状态。不能坚持常规训练的学生需将校队名额让给其他同学。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

What a wonderful week! The school has been alive with auditions for orchestra, choir, ensembles and with try-outs for football, swimming, volleyball, hockey, netball and whole range of other activities. In addition, our Year 5 students have been busy preparing for student council elections. Today, they presented their ideas and suggestions and tried to persuade their Year 4 and 5 peers to support them. The quality and range of the speeches was very impressive and demonstrated, once again, what articulate, thoughtful and capable students we have. The final roles of the council members will be announced next week.

We are looking forward to next week’s Parent Presentation Evening for Year 1 and Year 2 parents, the meeting to outline the Year 5 Camp trip to Nan Bei Hu lake and to meeting with members of the PTA.

We wish all parents and staff who are representing YK Pao School at an International Masters Football event in Pudong this weekend the best of luck. Thanks to Mike Young of the PE Department who has facilitated this opportunity and to those parents who contributed to the entry fee and team strip. It promises to be a challenging two day tournament!

Student Taking Leave outside Advertised Holidays

Due to the international nature of the YK Pao School community, some parents take their children out of School during term time, often requesting additional homework from School. Please refer to the following procedure of leave application:

If a child is absent due to sickness, the parents must inform:

a) Send the homeroom teacher an email before 8am and cc the school nurse Ding Lin (lin.ding@ykpaoschool.cn)

Or if you cannot access the internet, please ring the School office by telephone before 8:30am (021-61671999)

b) Parents must apply in writing to the Principal if they wish their child to take personal leave during semester time.  The Principal will reply in writing granting or declining this leave. Holiday homework will only be issued on the last school day before holiday.

Please be aware that student personal leave should be no more than 6 days per year.  Any day taken over this number will be recorded on his/her school report as personal unexcused leave.

c) If a student is sick for an extended period of three or more days the School will endeavour to provide homework so that the student can keep up with the class.  If the student is absent for any other reason then the School is not obligated to provide homework other than that provided the weekly outline through moodle to parents.

d) Re-take of Assessment Policy for Leave

Re-take of Formal External Assessments: No matter for what reason a student is absent when formal external assessments are administered, the student may not re-take the assessment and no grade will be recorded. Teachers will record the student as ABSENT.

Re-take of Internal Summative Assessments:

If a student is absent because of sick leave or approved personal leave when summative assessments such as the Mid-semester/End-semester Assessments are administered, the student is allowed to re-take the assessment if he or she is back at School within one week. If more than one week, students may not re-take the assessments.

If a student is absent because of unapproved personal leave when any summative assessment is administered, she or he may not re-take the assessment.

The Policy above is also posted on Page 7 of the Homework Dairy just for your reference.

Message from PTA

We are going to elect class representatives during the Parent Information Meeting on 11th and 22nd of September. Class Reps help facilitate communication between class teachers and the families as a bridge to seek more common understanding and collaboration.

Class Reps’ responsibilities are to attend the monthly PTA meetings, to organise one class activity per semester, to set up wechat group for the class and so on. A well and positive climate within the class will definitely conduce to students a healthy and joyful growth. We sincerely hope that every class gets excellent Class Reps this year.

Message from the Library

Dear Parents

Have you visited our Library lately? Have your little ones told you with excitement how different our Library is? I am thrilled to present the hub of the school, our Library, where everyone already enjoyed a lot before its big change. It is even more so with the extension project during summer. New space has been created, more shelves are to be installed, and, of course, more great books for little bookworms! Please visit us and enjoy yourself!

With the start of new school year, I am proud to present our Primary Library website: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/primary_library where you’d find practical information about our Library, such as user’s policy, available online databases (please contact any of our Library staff for username & password,) new books, reading suggestions, and many more!

Many children at YK Pao School have enjoyed our eBook Library, TumbleBook Library (www.tumblebooklibrary.com) a lot, and I hope your little ones are not missing it! It is an online eBook database for Primary age children where you’ll find picture books, fictions, non-fictions, graphic novels, even videos! Looking for audio books? No problem! All books come with an audio function that you and your little ones are able to sit and enjoy stories told by professional storytellers, some stories are read by the author him/herself!

Lastly, I’d like to invite our Year 5 students as part of our Library Team, because we are recruiting new Student Librarians!! If your Year 5 child is an avid reader like me, being a Student Librarian would benefit him/her with one extra book for loan; if your Year 5 child is interested in how Library functions, being a Student Librarian would equip him/her with all Library skills; if your Year 5 loves to help, there is no better place than a Library! Please encourage your Year 5 child to apply for this great opportunity.

I wish all the big readers, small readers, tiny readers, a very happy Moon Festival!

Tuesday – Notice Day

Tuesday is designated as Notice Day for distributing hard-copy notices to parents. Please make a note of this and remember to ask younger children to take them out of their backpacks and give them to you.

No Hat, No Play

As the weather is still hot, we strictly implement the No Hat, No Play policy. All students are expected to have their Pao cap at school and to wear this when they are outside at break times, for team sports or PE. Please ensure your child has a Pao cap with their name in it at school.

Moodle: Accessing Weekly Outlines

What is Moodle?

Moodle is a Course Management System (CMS) – also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). While the YKPS Moodle Site is available 24/7 on the Internet, it is also password-protected. Each student has an individual “login”. Parents can use the same login to keep track of their student’s classwork. Each YKPS class has its own Moodle page, used for curriculum delivery and assignment scheduling. Even when students miss school, they are able to use Moodle to stay current with what is happening in each of their classes.

How do I find weekly outlines?

Follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Log onto Moodle by going here: http://moodle.ykpaoschool.cn/login/index.php

Step 2: Enter your child’s student number as user name and the password

Step 3: Click on a class.

Step 4: Click on the Weekly Outline.

The password will be posted on Homework Dairy on 16th of September for your reference and the system will be back on service on September 16th as well.

Receiving Gifts Policy at Pao School

Teachers’ Day is approaching and some parents want to express their gratitude to our teachers for their hard work. At YK Pao School, however, our gift-receiving policy does not allow staff to receive gifts of significant value. Gifts such as flowers, chocolates or cards prior to festivals, etc are acceptable. The YK Pao School PTA will advise parents on appropriate ways to express their appreciation to teachers.

Admission Office and Extension Programs Office

Due to school’s ongoing development and improvement, Students Affairs Office has been separated into two departments by their functions in the new school year. They are Admission Office and Extension Programs Office.

Admission Office is in charge of student recruitment, admission event supporting, student registration system management, parents’ information updating and other parents and students services. If there are any concerns, please contact us at 61671999*8104

The Extension Programs Office is responsible for the extension programs at the primary division and summer camp programs. Jobs include the design of the EP curriculum, recruitment of teaching staff, recruitment of students, cooperation with training institutions, and summer camps planning as well as promotion, students’ recruitment, camp management and operation. Please feel free to contact with us at 61671999*8108.

Football Teams Semester 1 2014 / 2015

We are planning to have one team in Year 1, 2 teams at Year 2, 2 teams at Year 3, 2 teams at Year 4 and the YKPS Under 11 Team for Year 5 and any other outstanding players.

The above representative teams from Year 1 to Year 4 play in the Sunday Sport For Life Competitions held at Shanghai American School from 10 am to midday on the following five dates: Sunday October 19, November 2, 9, 23 and the final date on December 7.

Students that practice regularly will be invited to play and will be given uniforms closer to the starting date.

Games for the Year

A Head Coach for each Year Group will be appointed and we hope to have 20 – 24 students per Year (with the exception of Year 1 in Semester 1). This would mean two teams at each age group. The Head Coach will take one team, but we need help for the second team. This is where I am asking the parents to step forward and support us. Rather than bring in coaches who have no connection with the students, I am asking for two parents per age group to join to run one team. That means two parents from Year 4, two parents from Year 3, two parents from Year 2 and none as yet from Year 1 as there will be only one team until season two, when we shall need two parents.

I would ask you to contact the PTA rep from your child’s Year Group if you are able to commit to 5 Sunday mornings in Semester 1 to help run a team in which your child will be playing. If you would like to know more please email me on michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn and I can give you more details.

Swimming Team

As our standard of swimming continues to rise, we have piloted and had success with the following steps for selection to the YKPS Swim Team for Primary Students.

1 – In swimming class time, the teacher notices students with ability or potential. These students are invited to Team Sports Swimming during curriculum time.

2 – The students in Team Sports Swimming Practice will be put through their paces by Teacher Yuan Bin. The most able will be invited to join the Early Morning Swimming Practice.

3 – During the Early Morning Swimming Practice, Coach Johnny casts his eye over the students and he will select the students most appropriate for the YKPS Swim Team. All students will be expected to attend 2 morning Trainings per week (days up to you as parents depending on your commitments). With this regular practice our students will get enough “swimming kilometres” per week to be competitive. Students who do not attend regularly will be left out of the swim team and we shall invite replacements.

Some additional dates for the older students in teams:

Newsletter 29 August 2014

各位包校集体成员,

新学年的第一周忙碌而又精彩,而充满学生们的校园也再一次恢复了活力。这学期我们迎来了133名新学生(约占学生总数的25%),校园里有了他们的存在而更加充实,我们也一起度过了愉快而有趣的一周。老师和学生们还在忙着相互了解,学校的管理系统和各项常规也已逐步开始运行以确保学校正常运作。一年级的新生们现在已经完全融入到了新环境之中,他们的适应能力给我们留下了深刻的印象,其他各年级的转学生们也表现得不错。

今年,我们也有一批新员工加入包校集体,他们也已适应了新的工作环境和氛围。师生之间的关系也非常融洽。

若没有家长的支持,学校是无法正常运转的。我们要感谢各位家长的配合让学校的各项工作在新学年里得以顺利展开。一如既往地,我们要求包校集体成员在上学和放学的高峰时段不将车停靠在武定路上。随意停靠将严重影响交通,也会对学生造成安全隐患。孩子们的健康与安全是我们首要关心的大事。还望家长们理解与配合。

感谢所有前来参加新学年第一场社交活动的家长们。本次活动给我们彼此了解的机会。由于预计周五是个雨天,我们将活动地点安排在了室内。

相信有不少的包校成员都留意到,在暑假里学校进行了一系列的整修施工。是家长们对年度基金活动的慷慨捐助使得学校改善校园环境的愿望得以实现。扩建后的图书馆更加明亮宽敞,孩子们都开心极了!

想要提醒大家的是,学生处(负责招生及拓展项目)、校服间、总务部门(负责校车、学校设施及校舍管理)已搬至东楼一楼的东区。铺有弹簧支撑的轻木地板且设施先进的新舞蹈房就位于东楼三楼,学校的钢琴练习室也已整修一新并加装了隔音设置。除此以外,我们还重新设计了美术教室,部分行政员工办公室和校长办公室也有所调整。我要衷心感谢确保这些整修工作得以推进完成的每一个人。

我们也对学校的餐厅进行了改进,现在的餐厅增设了很多座位,供餐设备和冷藏柜也所有改善。学生们对于这些改变都纷纷给出了积极正面的反馈,我们也希望能在将来和大家分享这些包校新变化。

展望新的一年,学校课程的发展与完善将成为长宁和松江校区的几项工作重点之一。鉴于小学部毕业生去松江中学部继续学习的比率持续走高,确保中小学课程连贯性和衔接度的工作就显得至关重要,我们将尽可能地把课程衔接得更加合理流畅。中小学部的课程主管们为了实现这一目标也已经开始研讨与合作。

学生的领导能力也是我们要发展的方面。我们已经在着手发展学生会,让学生真正有机会来展示他们的领导能力,分享他们关于如何能让学校发展得更好的一些观点和想法。我们的五年级学生已接受挑战来思考高效的领导能力有哪些特质,以及履行这些重要责任需要哪些技能。

您可以想象,我们已经在真正意义上开始了新学年,忙碌、激动、目标明确!

我们期待,与您一起携手,共创一个欢乐多多、收获满满的新学年。

早晨开车送孩子

感谢所有努力配合学校规定的家长们!现在,大多孩子能在下车前提前做好准备,由学校高层管理员工将他们接下车,然后沿着弄堂走到校门口。请记住,这是一个快速“下车”的过程,家长或司机不应下车。我们的员工会在那里协助学生下车。让我们共同合作,确保武定西路的交通顺畅。为了不阻碍交通并让车流畅行,请不要将车辆停在武定路上。如您想见老师,请下车并让司机将车停在其它地方。

新生分学院

如果您的孩子是一年级新生或转学生,相信他们已经跟您分享了一些关于充满梦幻色彩的学院系统。本周他们都被那只带有一双眼睛的神奇的“分院帽”给分入到春、夏、秋、冬这四个不同学院。还有很多孩子因在校表现积极良好而受到了老师颁发的学院分,家长们也可效仿此系统在家建立类似的机制,发掘孩子们的闪光点并予以鼓励。

一年级老师会与新生家长们分享班级新成员小Q熊的信息,届时请家长们和自己的孩子也聊聊这个话题。

包校礼物收受政策

教师节临近,一些家长想表达对老师辛苦工作的谢意,我们是理解的。但包校规定,员工不能接受贵重礼物。用鲜花、巧克力或贺卡之类的礼物略表心意则可以接受。家校协力会将为家长们提供一些有关谢师的合理建议。

来自校医的信息

经教育局批准,学校准备为每一位在校学生购买“平安学平险”,家长无需另外缴纳保费,具体内容请参见附件中的文件(仅有中文版本)。如果您不需要购买此保险,请在9月2日前告知校医Maggie,邮箱是Maggie.liu@ykpaoschool.cn,谢谢配合。

Ping __-’An Insurance Introduction 平安学平险简介

Ping ‘An Insurance Introduction 平安保险条款

校服

穿着正确的校服上学是学生在包校学习的重要一部分。学生穿校服看上去大方漂亮,并可以培养他们对学校的归属感。周一我们进行每周的第一次升旗,这是一个正式的场合。因此学生必须穿正装校服。家庭作业日志里有学校期望学生遵守的着装标准。一周的其它时间里,学生应穿开领短袖衫或学院T恤。请不要自行混搭,如:领带应该仅与白衬衣搭配,而不是搭配开领短袖衫,连衣裙里面应与衬衣搭配。请记住周一正装要搭配黑色皮鞋,其他日子和穿运动鞋。Crocs、凉鞋等不能穿到学校来。音乐剧《爱丽丝梦游仙境》和其他音乐活动的宣传T恤并不属于校服单品,因此不能作为学校日常服装。

一年级新生及转校生:请家长训练孩子们在每个校服单品上做好标记,如,帽子、游泳帽等,如果不加标记,在物品遗失后,孩子将很难辨认出属于自己的物品。

校服购买

学校后勤部将只在每周二及周四下午接受校服购买,提醒家长注意,谢谢配合。

失物招领

为了更好地管理失物招领柜,学校每周开放三个时段给学生们在失物招领柜里寻找物品,且由五年级的小小管理员管理并帮助学生们寻找。

我们希望家长也能督促孩子养成保管好个人物品的良好习惯,并请家长协助在每件学生物品上注明姓名,以便在丢失后能够寻回。

敬请留意失物招领柜最新的开放时间:

对学生的开放时间:周一-周五10:25-10:45 和12:15-13:15

对家长开放的时间:每周五15:45-16:45

来自体育部的信息

体育部老师们欢迎各位,让我们一起携手迎接2014-15学年的到来!我们很高兴地向大家宣布,本学期我们为孩子们建立了种类繁多的运动队,其中包括一至五年级足球队、女子足球队、无板篮球队、橄榄球队、排球队、乒乓球队、篮球队、田径队和游泳队!各个校队的人员选拔将于开学第二、第三周进行。选拔活动将于午间和团队体育时间进行,具体安排如下,我们也会在集会时向学生宣布这些信息。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had a wonderful first week of the Academic Year. The school feels alive again now that all the students have returned. With 133 new students (about 25% of the school population) it has been a busy, enjoyable and very interesting week. Teachers and students are busy getting to know one another and the systems and routines are being well established to ensure that the school runs smoothly. We have been particularly impressed with our Year 1 students who have settled confidently. Our transfer students in other Year groups also appear to be doing very well.

We also have a considerable number of new staff who all seem to have settled extremely quickly. The rapport between staff and students is excellent, too.

No school can function smoothly without the support of parents. We would like to thank you for helping us establish such a strong start to the year.  As always, we would request that there is no parking on Wuding Lane at school drop-off and pick-up times. Doing so seriously affects the the whole community and can make the area more hazardous for students. Their health and safety is our prime concern.

Thank you to all parents who attended the start of year social get-together this evening. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know one another. In anticipation of the rain, we made arrangements for the event to take place inside the West Building.

I am sure that existing members of the community will have noticed the building work that has taken place over the Summer. The generosity of donors to our Annual Fund have made these improvements possible. The library improvements are wonderful and the student reaction has been terrific.

For information, the Student Affairs Office (Admissions and Extra Curricular and Extension Programmes Office), The Uniform Shop and the General Services Department (Buses, Facilities, Buildings) have been re-located together on the First Floor of the East building. Also in the East building, we have a brand new ‘state-of the art’ dance studio on the third floor with a light wood sprung floor, refurbished and sound proofed music practice rooms, re-designed Art Rooms and some minor re-location of the Principals and other Administrative Offices.

Our sincere thanks to everybody who has enabled these improvements.

We have an improved Cafeteria also which now has extra seating and improved serving facilities and cold storage. The students have already commented very positively on these developments. We look forward to sharing these with you as the year progresses.

Looking forward, the school has some important priorities. The continuing development of our curriculum will be a focus across the Changning and Songjiang campuses. Given the high percentage of students transferring to the secondary campus, it is vital that we work hard to ensure progression and continuity so that the educational provision is as seamless and natural as we can make it. Already, staff from both campuses have met to outline how this will be achieved.

Student leadership is an area that we are looking to develop, too. Plans are already underway to develop a Student Council that will provide genuine opportunities for students to demonstrate leadership, share their views and opinions as to how the school might be developed. Our Year 5 students have been challenged to think about the qualities of effective leadership and the skills that will be required to carry out these important responsibilities.

As you will imagine, we are already extremely busy and we start the year with a genuine sense of excitement and purpose.

We look forward, in partnership with you, to a rewarding, productive and very happy year.

Morning Car Drop-offs

Thank you to all the parents who are making this time of the day a safe and manageable task! Most cars arrive now with children ready to be helped out by the senior staff. They are then escorted over to the lane where they walk down towards the school gate. Please remember that this is a quick ‘drop-and-go’ time. Parents or drivers are not required to get out of their cars as staff are available to assist students. We all need to work together to make sure the traffic on Wuding Xi Lu keeps moving. Please do not park on Wuding Xi Lu before School as extra cars parked there slow traffic and cause disruptions. If you want to see teachers please get dropped off and have your driver park elsewhere.

New Houses for New Students

If your child is new to Y1 or has just joined our school, s/he might have already shared lots with you about the house system. All students were sorted into Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter houses this week by a wonderful ‘Sorting Hat’ with Eyes!  Many children have been given house points by their teacher for being POSITIVE and GOOD. Parents can create a similar system at home to encourage children being good!

New Y1 parents please talk to your children about the new classmate Q bear, Y1 teachers will share more inform with you on that topic!

Receiving Gifts Policy at Pao School

Teachers’ Day is approaching and some parents want to express their gratitude to our teachers for their hard work. At YK Pao School, however, our gift-receiving policy does not allow staff to receive gifts of significant value. Gifts such as flowers, chocolates or cards prior to festivals, etc are acceptable. The YK Pao School PTA will advise parents on appropriate ways to express their appreciation to teachers.

Uniform

Wearing the correct uniform to School is an important part of being at YK Pao School. Students look very smart in their uniforms and develop a sense of belonging to the School. On Mondays we raise the flag and it is a formal occasion. Therefore, students must wear their formal uniform. There is a guide in the Homework Diary for your reference. On other days students should wear their polo or House T-shirts. Please do not mix and match uniform items. For example, ties are only worn with the white shirt and not with the polo shirt, and dresses should always be worn with a shirt underneath. Please also note that black leather shoes should be worn with the formal uniform on Monday and sports shoes on other days.  Crocs, sandals, etc are not to be worn to School. Clothing such as t-shirts from Alice in Wonderland and Musical activities are not considered uniform and therefore are not to be worn to school on regular class days.

New Y1 students and transfer students: parents please help your children or train them, to LABEL each of the items of uniform such as their hat or swimming cap. Your child will not be able to find or reclaim their belongings without name labels.

Uniform Purchase

Uniform purchase is available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons every week. Thanks for your cooperation.

Lost & Found Opening Schedule

To enable students who have lost items to retrieve them sooner, the Lost & Found cupboard will open three times during the week. Year 5 monitors will manage the cupboard and help students to search for their property.

Parents are encouraged to instill in their children the habit of taking care of their property. Please remember that every item of clothing and property should have your child’s name on it to make identification easier.

New Lost & Found opening times:

Student: Monday – Friday, 10:25-10:45 and 12:15-13:15

Parents: Friday, 15:45-16:45

There are a very limited number of places this year – some parents have already applied. Places will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. The lessons allocation will be dependent on numbers and standards. The deadline for applications will be Friday 5th September.

The list for Piano Club has now been put up in the Music Department. Anyone wishing to be auditioned for Piano Club must write their name on the list by next Thursday (4th September). Auditions will take place the following week (beginning Tuesday 8th September). Please note that due to numbers, this activity is open to students from year 2 to year 5.

Newsletter 22 August 2014

各位包校集体成员,

大家好!希望大家都度过了一个轻松愉快的暑假,也希望您与家人和朋友共享了美好的欢聚时光。

今年,学校借着暑假期间进行了一系列的施工工程,我们对学校图书馆进行了扩建和整修、行政办公室也得到了更合理地安排、漂亮的舞蹈房即将对学生开放、艺术教室也有了新的格局,此外,我们还改进了学校餐厅并在暑假里顺利地完成了所有的装修工作。学校之所以能焕然一新很大程度上要感谢家长们对年度基金活动的大力支持和慷慨解囊。

今年的暑假活动营获得了巨大成功。此外,我们的教学和行政员工还利用暑假参加了专业培训,其中包括新的校务管理系统“PowerSchool”的设置与推行。这个新的系统将帮助包校成员间的信息分享更为快捷、互动更加多样高效。一些重要的革新信息我们会在系统正式启用前与您分享。

本学期,小学部迎来了15名新员工,我们的教职员工也已于本周全部回校并为开学做好了准备。在入职培训和全体员工回归后的培训会议上,我们的创办人用他们对教育事业的热诚和独到的见解以及对包校办学的愿景继续鼓舞、激励我们大家朝着相同的目标开启新的航程。

今天,当我见到来校的一年级新生时,我真切地感受到了一股活力和热情又回到了校园。我们很期待下周一全体孩子们的回归,学校里有了孩子才会显得生机勃勃!

我们希望今明两天的家访活动进行得顺利,也希望预约会面的家长们能借此机会与孩子的班主任老师好好交流一番。正是这类重要而富有意义的会面帮助我们建立起了家校互助的合作关系。

我建议家长们能花些时间仔细阅读学校每周发出的校长来信,每封来信都包含了很多重要信息。本周的校长来信是新学年的第一封信,里面涵盖了许多开学后的常规要求,我们希望包校成员们能重视信里的内容。校长来信只是我们与您沟通的一种手段,您还可以从学生的家校联系册和年级信中获取更多的学校信息。

我们期待能与您建立更为紧密的合作关系,并在包校为孩子们创建更优越的学习环境和氛围。对我们来说,没有什么比提高孩子的学业成就和社交能力更重要的了。

武定西路校区早晨送孩子

任何车辆不能驶入1251弄弄堂内

任何车辆不能进入1251弄的弄堂内。所有车辆必须从江苏路进入武定西路,将车靠边停在不到1251弄的地方。学校两名员工将等候在那里为孩子开车门,并帮助他们下车。司机或家长应留在车内,孩子下车后,请尽快将车驶离。这是为了确保车辆最短时间的停留。

学生将在包校员工的引领下在弄堂人行道上步行至校门口。任何时候,学生都不必穿越马路。

从周一起,家长早晨不能进入校园,除非已提前与我校老师预约见面。所有访客必须出示接送卡或者在门卫处登记并佩戴访客卡。

请告知您的司机这些信息,以便他们全力与包校员工合作。

由于校园禁止停车、校园周围的停车位有限等因素,请想要参加升旗仪式的一年级新生家长尽量选择公共交通或出租车来校送学生。

接送卡

我们将于8月25日(周一),即开学第一天为所有学生发放新的接送卡。家长或监护人来接学生时必须向保安和老师出示此卡方可将学生带出校园。如您有任何疑问,请联系学生处何敏老师 (Stella He):61671999-8000

校服

学生每周一和开学第一天必须穿正装校服。附件里是校服规范,供家长们参阅。

SUMMER1_bilingual

无坚果学校

由于我校有一些学生有食物过敏的问题,因此我们在此宣布,包校是一所“无坚果学校”。请不要将任何坚果或带有坚果成分的食物带到学校来。

课表

排课对行政员工而言是一项充满挑战的任务。通常,第一周是课表的试运行期。若运行正常,随后我们将定稿,班主任会将班级的课表贴在学生的家校联系簿上。

政府教学资源

作为一所中国学校,包校在每学期开学时会获得一些政府发放的教学资源。其中一些内容对我校课程有辅助作用,但大部分内容与我们相关性不大。学科老师会与学生分享如何使用这些资源,例如,一些本地教材可以放在家里,有时将它们作为辅助资料,而另一些仅作为学生的参考书放在家里。老师会提前告知学生这些信息。

开学第一天安排

8月25日(周一)我们将遵照特殊时间表。升旗仪式照常进行,如果天气条件允许,就在足球场上进行升旗仪式。晨会以后,欢迎新生家长与孩子一起参加在礼堂举行的欢迎集会。一、二年级集会在8:40-9:00进行,三、四、五年级集会在9:10-9:30进行。

由于场地有限,我们不希望家长送孩子进教室,老师将在门口迎接并引领学生进班级。感谢您的理解与配合。

一年级英语

进入我校的孩子,有些有英语背景,有些没有。为了为各种英语基础的学生提供以学生为主体的课程,学生在英语课上被分在两个大层中学习:英语基础班和英语主流班。

英语基础班

为那些接触英语的机会比较有限的学生或英语是第二语言的学生所设定的能提供支持和帮助的班级。采用的教材可加速学生学习的效果,通过有针对性的教学手段为学生进行英语语言学习打下坚实的基础。

英语主流班

为那些在英语各方面都有一定基础的学生所设定的班级,该班采用分级教材。

每层的课程和教学资源都根据学生的学习需求度身定制。根据8月22日刚刚进行的一年级英语测试的数据,学生都分入了相应的英语学习组。在接下来的两周中,老师将仔细观察他们的学习情况,可能根据实际情况做出微调。在上学期家长会上,我们与家长分享了一些学习资源,感谢所有使用这些资源的家长们的支持。英语分组将在预定的时间内完成。

拓展课课程

温馨提示:课外拓展课程报名截止日期为8月26日。请家长们按时提交报名表,谢谢!

家长老师非正式会面-烧烤活动

我们诚挚地邀请所有家长参加8月29日(下周五)晚18:00在操场举行的家长老师非正式会面活动。这是包校集体在新学年里的第一个社交活动。您将有机会同家校协力会的成员、包校老师和其他新成员见面。希望大家踊跃参加。

此外,我们还为刚经历了班级重组的四年级学生家长在烧烤活动开始前安排了一个小型见面会,家长们可以借着此次机会和四年级团队先见上一面。家长见面会将于17:30-18:00在礼堂举行。

**请注意,学校将不提供停车服务**

员工事宜

本月,我们很荣幸地迎来了14位新教学员工加入包校,其中包括中方助教和语言支持助教。8月13日开始的员工培训进行得很成功。新老师对这里的新工作感到十分兴奋。有关老师的更多信息,家长们可以稍后通过家庭作业日志得到了解。

如果有足够需求量,我们还计划开设木管乐器课(笛子、单簧管、萨克斯)和声乐课。同样的,对于管弦乐团和管乐团来说,这些乐器的学习者也将炙手可热。如果您的孩子有兴趣,请联系音乐组。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Greetings! We hope that you have all had a restful and relaxing summer during which you have been able to spend quality time with family and friends.

School has been extremely busy over the summer break with some wonderful developments taking place. Our school library has been extended and refurbished, we have new administrative offices, a stunning new dance room, re-modelled art rooms, improvements in the cafeteria and complete re-decoration. This has been possible, in large part, because of your generous contributions to our Annual Fund.

Our Summer Camps were also a huge success and many of our teaching and Administrative staff used the time to further their own professional development. Part of this work has involved the setting up and implementation of a new computer-based administrative system called ‘PowerSchool’ which will enable all members of the community to share information and interact more productively. Important and progressive changes are on the way and we will be giving you more information as the system is rolled-out.

We have welcomed 15 new staff in the primary Division and all staff have been in school this week preparing for the semester which lies ahead. Our Founders have been a part of this orientation and induction programme and their energy, vision and insight continue to inspire us.

There is already a tangible energy and enthusiasm which has been fuelled again today by meeting many of our new Year 1 students. We are all really looking forward to welcoming the students back on Monday. Schools are strange places without them!

We hope that the home visits are going well and that those who registered for appointments have had opportunities to meet with your child’s teacher. These are important formative meetings which help us to develop important partnerships between home and school.

Please do take the time to read our weekly Newsletters carefully. They always contain some extremely important information. This first one of the year outlines some important routines for the start of the year and we would encourage every family to be aware of the contents. It is just one vehicle for communicating with you. Others include the student diary and the year group letter.

We look forward, in partnership with you, to providing an excellent environment for learning at YK Pao School. Nothing is more important to us than the academic and social development of your children.

Morning Drop-off at Wuding Road Campus

No cars are permitted to drive down Lane 1251

All cars must approach the school down West Wuding Road from Jiangsu Road and pull up before the entrance to Lane 1251. The two staff members on duty will open the car doors and get students out of the cars. Drivers/parents should stay in their cars and move off as soon as the students are out of the cars. This will ensure as quick a drop-off as possible.

Students will walk down the west side footpath directed by YK Pao School staff and in through the gate. At no time will students have to cross the road.

Unless parents have made appointments to see staff they will not be permitted to enter the campus from this Monday morning. All visitors must show their pick-up card or sign in and wear a Visitor tag so it can be seen easily.

Please inform your driver of these regulations so they can cooperate fully with YK Pao School staff.

Year 1 parents wishing to attend the first morning Flag raising should come by public transport or taxi as there is no parking on campus and very limited parking in the environs.

Pick-up Card

New pick-up cards will be issued to all Years students and transfer students on the first day, Monday 25th August. Parents or guardians who are picking up students must show this card to Security and the student’s teachers before taking the student off the campus. Should you have any inquiries please contact Ms Stella He from the Student Affairs Office at: 61671999-8000

School Uniform

Students must wear the formal uniform every Monday and on the first day of school. A guide for the school uniform is attached for your reference.

Nut-free School

As we have several students with food allergies we are declaring YK Pao School a ‘nut-free school’.  Please do not send nuts or nut products to school in treats or snacks.

Timetable

As usual, the timetable is always a challenging project for our administration staff. The first week of school will be a trial period for the timetable and, if everything runs smoothly, it will be finalised and inserted into the homework diary at the beginning of week two.

Government Resources

As a Chinese school, YK Pao School receives government resources at the beginning of each semester. Some of the content of these resources is useful to support our school curriculum; much of it, however,is not relevant. Subject teachers will provide students with information on how these resources should be used.  For instance, some of the books will be kept at home but are sometimes used as supplementary materials, while others are only for students’ reference at home.

Arrangements for the First Day

On Monday, 25th August, we will be using a modified timetable. We will start by raising the flag as usual on the soccer pitch, weather permitting.  After morning exercise, new parents are welcome to attend the welcome assembly with students in the auditorium. Years 1/2 students will have their assembly between 8:40 and 9:00 am, Years 3/4/5 students will have their assembly between 9:10 and 9:30 am.

Due to the limited space, we do not wish parents to accompany their children to the classroom. Our teachers will welcome students outside and guide them to the classrooms. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Year 1 English

Some children enter our School with an English-speaking background and some with a non-English-speaking background. In order to provide a child-centered programme for this diversity of English language backgrounds the children are streamed into two broad groups; Foundation and Mainstream.

Foundation

A supported class for children with limited exposure to English – or with English as an Additional Language.  Classes follow an accelerated curriculum providing a solid foundation for their developing English through targeted approaches.

Mainstream

A class for children who have a foundation in most areas of English, following a grade-level curriculum.

The programmes and resources are designed and chosen to meet the needs of each group. Using the data collected from the recent Year One Assessment Day on Friday 22nd August, students have been placed into appropriate classes. Students will be closely monitored in the next two weeks and there might be some minor adjustments. Thank you to those parents who used the resources we shared with you in a previous Parent Meeting late last semester. Your support is appreciated. Classes will be confirmed in due course.

Enrichment Programme

Just a kind reminder, the deadline of EP enrollment is August 26th. Please submit your application on time. Thank you!

Parent –Teacher BBQ

We cordially invite all parents to meet with staff informally at a Barbeque on Friday August 29th at 6.00 p.m. This will be an opportunity to for us to host our first community event of the year. You will have the opportunity to meet members of the school PTA Committee at this event, and to meet the newest members of our school community. Do please try to come!

A small session for Y4 parents whose children have just been through class blending recently is arranged right before the BBQ, so Y4 parents will be able to meet the teaching team first at 17:30 – 18:00 in the Auditorium.

**Please note that the school has no facilities for parking**

Staffing

We are pleased to welcome the 14 new teaching members of staff, including our Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Language Support Teaching Assistants. We have run a very successful orientation and training programme from 13th August and our new teachers are excited about their new careers here in Shanghai. More detailed information will be shared with parents and students in the Homework Diaries.

中国文化周

为期9天的中国文化周活动于本周二顺利落下帷幕了。本次文化周活动,老师们围绕着各个年级的主题,为孩子们设计了丰富多彩的活动。孩子们通过活动,在玩中学,在学中玩,体验了中国传统文化。在“中文演讲日”的展示活动中,孩子们也通过演讲、戏剧、展览等方式,向老师和家长们展现了自己的学习成果。感谢家长们对于语文组活动一直以来的支持!

来自体育组的信息

学校运动服

所有离开包校小学部的学生应将学校的运动服交还给各自的教练。下一学年仍在包校就读的学生则可继续保存自己的运动装备。假期后,若学生觉得运动装备的尺寸已偏小,请将衣服洗净后还给教练以便学校派发新的运动装备。

家长/老师足球队

我很高兴地在此宣布,我们将组建一支由家长和老师为成员的足球队参加于9月6日星期六和9月7日星期天在浦东外高桥五洲大道的上海橄榄球俱乐部举行的上海亚洲大师七人制足球比赛。本次比赛历时两天,专为40岁以上的足球选手设立(我们也允许招募两位35岁以上的球员)。如果有家长感兴趣的话,请发电子邮件给Michael Young老师,他会与您分享更多信息。邮件地址为:michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn。与此同时,也是各位打响健身之战的时候了!

2014-2015在上海中学举行的周日足球赛

下一赛季在上海美国学校举行的Sports for Life足球赛共有五场。待比赛日期确定后,我们将即刻通知各位家长。

我们将在一至四年级的每个年级设立两支球队。足球队的常规训练为每周两次,分别在午间课休及团队体育课时进行。

我们将为每个年级任命一位教练,并希望每个年级能招募到20-24位小球员,这也就意味着,每个年级需要组建两支球队。在参赛过程中,教练会带领并管理其中一支球队,目前,我们急需有人能支持两支队伍中的另一支球队,因此我们希望能有家长勇挑重担来支持我们。与其外聘与学生毫无情感联系的教练,我们觉得不如每个年级能有两位家长共同合作指导并支持一支球队,即四年级出两位家长、三年级出两位家长、二年级出两位家长,由于一年级在第一赛季只有一支球队,因此暂不需要一年级出志愿家长,待第二赛季开始后,一年级将也需要出两位家长支持其球队了。

如果您有兴趣在第一学期的五个周日率领您孩子所在年级的学生征战球场的话,请联系相关的年级代表。您也可以写信给Michael Young老师获取更多相关信息,他的邮件地址为:michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn

上海学校体育协会赛事

为更好地规划孩子们的运动日程,我们为大家提供以下由上海学校体育协会主办的各项比赛信息:

(参加这些比赛的学生多数为5年级学生和一些老师指定邀请的学生。由于这些比赛的年龄分类为11岁以下年龄段,因此我们在挑选参赛者时也会非常仔细谨慎,特别是为那些有肢体接触的运动项目挑选队员的时候。由于田径、越野赛、乒乓球、网球和击剑的比赛项目更注重技术水平,因此参赛选手的挑选工作并不是最严苛的)

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Well, what a fantastic last week of the school year. The school has been buzzing with activity and preparations for the school holiday and the Summer Camps but we have also been taking the time to reflect upon what a productive year we have had.

The Year 5 Graduation ceremony on Thursday was a wonderful way for our students to mark their final days in Primary School. To have our Founders, Board Members, special guests, parents and teachers there to send our students on their way was truly special. Thank you to all of the parents who attended and made it such a special occasion, and particularly to those parents who spoke so passionately about the school and to those of you who produced the wonderful quilt which will be a long lasting legacy for the graduating class of 2014. I am sure you will join us in thanking each and every member of the school community who has contributed to the learning of this special cohort of students.

We are also preparing for our summer building programme. The last week has seen many of the Administrative staff re-locate to new offices and the library is all set for a renovation and extension, courtesy of this year’s Annual Fund. We look forward to improved accommodation next semester.

Please find attached the information relating to your child’s homeroom teacher and also the calendared events for next year. You will notice that we have added some new events and removed others. As a school we are evolving and making sure that the planned events do not detract too much from our classroom teaching and learning. At the same time, we want our school to continue being a busy, active and dynamic community resource.

Finally, on behalf of all staff we would like to thank you for your tremendous support this year and wish you all a very restful and relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back safely on Monday August 25th.

Chinese Culture Week

A nine-day cultural week ended this Tuesday. This cultural week, teachers designed colorful activities for students around themes for different Years. Students experience Chinese traditional culture through the activities, mixing playing and learning together. During the “Speech Day”, students showed their own learning achievement by speech, drama, and exhibition.  We really appreciate parents’ support to the Mandarin activities!

Staffing

At the beginning and end of each school year we welcome some new staff and, unfortunately, say farewell to others. For different reasons, staff who are leaving are Maureen Giulieri, Jeffrey Reed, Anne Murray, Phuong Phan, Vinci Shi, Tin Hu, Laila Du, Sara Miao, Nancy Zhou, Dorothy Dai and Amy Zhu. We will also say goodbye to Tess Stanton, Jemima Mcneillis, Verity Amos, Andrew Peden and Morgan Yee. We would like to thank the staff named above for their contributions to the school community and wish them all the very best in the future.

We have four Intern Teachers who are making the move up to teacher status. They are Rainbow Huang, May Gou from the Math Team, Jassita Min from the Mandarin Team and Laura as a CAL teacher. With 2~3-year learning and practicing in YK Pao School, these young teachers have grown to be capable of undertaking the teaching tasks on their own. Congratulations to all of them!

We will have four Teachers and several Teaching Assistants join the school community, and below is a brief introduction to these new staff:

Andre Sleigh received a Bachelor degree in Education from Cape Peninsula University of Technology. He has worked in Taipei Fuhsing Private School for 5 years teaching English, Science, Public Speaking, Culture Studies and Drama. He will join us as an English teacher from next semester.

Timothy Gallagher graduated from University of Queensland and holds a Graduate Diploma of Education.

School Sports Uniforms

All students that are leaving Primary should by now have handed sports uniforms back to their coaches. All students that are continuing in YKPS Primary School may keep their kit. Should the kit become too small after the holidays then upon return of the shirt and shorts smelling of lavender, we shall issue your child a new set!

Parent /Teachers Football Team

I am pleased to announce that we shall combine a team of teachers and parents to play soccer in the Shanghai Asia Masters 7 a side Football Competition, to be held on Saturday 6th and Sunday the 7th of September at the Shanghai Rugby Club, Wuzhou Rd, Wai Gao Qiao, Pudong.

The tournament is over two days for footballers over 40 years of age (we are allowed 2 players over 35 years). Should any parent feel that they would like to come along and play, please email me ( michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn ) and I can give you more details. Meanwhile; start the battle for fitness!

Sunday Football at Shanghai High School 2014 / 2015

There will be 5 dates for Sports For Life Football at S.A.S. next season. As soon as we have had confirmation of these dates we shall inform you.

In each Year Group from Year 1 to Year 4, we shall run two teams. Training will be twice a week, done during one lunchtime and during Team Sports class.

A Head Coach for each Year Group will be appointed and we hope to have 20 – 24 students per Year. This would mean two teams at each age group. The Head Coach will take one team and we need help for the second team. This is where I am asking the parents to step forward and support us. Rather than bring in coaches who have no connection with the students, I am asking for two parents per age group to join to run one team. That means two parents from Year 4, two parents from Year 3, two parents from Year 2 and none as yet from Year 1 as there will be only one team until season two, when we shall need two parents.

I would ask you to contact the PTA rep from your child’s Year Group if you are able to commit to 5 Sunday mornings in Semester 1 to help run a team in which your child will be playing. If you would like to know more please email me on michael.young@ykpaoschool.cn and I can give you more details.

To give you a head start on planning your time in sport for your children, here are some dates from the Shanghai Schools Sports Association:

Newsletter 20 June 2014

各位包校集体成员:

我们又度过了忙碌而充实的一周!

本周,中国文化周的活动在各个年级积极开展,其内容也丰富多彩。我们衷心感谢那些支持中国文化周活动的家长们。此类活动的举办让“为孩子打下坚实的中文基础和传承中国文化”的使命得到了充分地体现。感谢中文教学团队为大家呈现了这样一个令人印象深刻的活动。

此外,数学组的活动也深深地吸引了孩子们的注意力,趣味横生的活动让孩子们乐在其中。利用活动来巩固孩子们这一学期所学也是一个不错的方法。

下周一,我们就要派发报告卡了!可以想象得到,这几周老师们为了报告卡有多么忙碌!

这些日子,我们五年级的学生们一直在为下周三的毕业典礼做积极的准备。毕业典礼一直是一个具有特殊意义的活动,也是孩子们成长过渡的一个重要标志。下周一,我们就要揭晓获胜学院的结果了,希望获胜学院的孩子们喜欢学校为他们准备的惊喜派对!该庆祝活动将于周二举行。

下周四,我们会通过邮件与各位家长分享明年的教师安排。

想要提醒各位的是,下周最后一天上学日为星期四!

我们非常期待假期里的校园整修工程能正式启动。扩建图书馆是我们期盼已久的,而在这个夏天,图书馆的扩建工程就要正式动工了。在这里,我们要感谢各位家长的慷慨解囊,是年度基金的支持让我们终于能得偿所愿。

让我们满怀激动的心情去迎接本学期的最后一周吧!

新学年的作息时间表

过去几年来,我们的课表上没有设置两节课之间的“换课/预备”时间,原本是希望所有员工看钟表进行教学安排,但是此举在我们这学科制的学校系统中操作下来有些不便之处,实际操作中这“换课/预备”时间其实是不可避免的一个环节,因此学校经过慎重考虑与协商,决定从明年开始,将此“换课/预备“时间放入课表当中,以方便学生及老师的时间安排。附件是新学年的作息时间表,请查阅。特别提示:  明年的这一调整并不影响孩子们的上学和放学时间。

此外,从新学年开始,我们将实行新的考勤方式。此考勤方式目前已在试行当中,运转良好。具体为:班主任每天早上于8:15-8:20期间在教室内进行考勤,考勤记录统一录入新的学校管理系统Powerschool。因此,8:15分未进入教室的学生将被视为迟到,迟到的学生需去前台老师处报到以便学校做记录。之后系统会自动生成当日的考勤报告,考勤报告的数据将在学期末统一汇总到一起放入学生的报告卡。因为学校考虑校车运行的特殊性,如我校班车的路线和乘坐的人数等因素,校车乘坐者随着班车进校不算为迟到。

所以,我们恳切希望各位家长能够配合学校新的作息时间表与考勤安排,每天按时送孩子们来校读书。谢谢!

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had another very busy week!

Thanks to those parents who have been supporting our Chinese Cultural week activities which have been so varied and interesting across the different year groups. Our mission ‘to give our students a foundation in Chinese language and culture’ has been served so well by these events. A big thank you to the Chinese Teaching team for overseeing such an impressive programme!

Maths activities have also been keeping students very focused. The fun and enjoyment derived have been tangible. It is a lovely way to consolidate this semester’s Maths learning.

School reports will be sent home on Monday! As you might imagine, this has kept teachers very busy.

Year 5 students are busy preparing for their graduation for next Wednesday. This is always a special event and one that marks the important transition to secondary school. We will be announcing the winning House on Monday and members of that House team will enjoy a surprise party on Tuesday!

We will be informing you of next year’s class allocations next week by way of an email on Thursday.

The last day for students will be next Thursday!

We are so looking forward to the new building works over the summer. Our long awaited library expansion will commence! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to our Annual Fund, because you have enabled this long awaited development.

We look forward to a busy last week!

New School Hours and Registration System

In the past few years, we didn’t set a ‘transition time’ between lessons on our timetable. However, in a school run in a subject-based system, it can cause some inconvenience without a clear demarcation. We tried to have the teachers keep an eye on the time and adjust when to stop teaching and have students get ready for the next period, but from the real practice, it is becoming increasingly clear that setting a ‘transition time’ is inevitable. After careful consideration and collaborative consultation, the school has decided to insert ‘transition time’ sessions into the school hours starting from next semester to ensure a better time arrangement for both students and teachers. Attached please kindly find the new school hours timetable just for your reference.  Please be advised that this adjustment will not affect the regular arrival and release time for students.

Furthermore, from next semester we are going to implement a new registration system within the school. We actually have been doing it as a trail currently and it goes well. The new registration steps are:

Homeroom teacher takes attendance in the classroom at 8:15-8:20 and all records will be put into Power School, a new school management system. Thus, the student who enters his/her classroom later than 8:15 will be considered as being late, and the late student has to go to the reception desk for morning registration. Power School will process a registration report according to the records of the day, and all records will be put into the student’s report card at the end of the semester. Students taking a school bus will not be marked late if the bus is delayed.

We, therefore, sincerely hope that you send your child to school on time so that we can work together to carry out the new school hour timetable and the new registration system. Thank you very your understanding and cooperation!

Punctuality is an important life skill.

Message from the Library

Dear Parents,

I am sure you are excited about the upcoming summer holiday, and I hope all your little ones have taken 10 fabulous books to enjoy during the long summer! It is a gentle reminder that the Library will be closed from June 23 (Monday) on and is not open during summer holiday. We look forward to seeing you and your children in August when school starts.

If, unfortunately, your child, Y5 and leaving students in particular, still has any unreturned Library items before the end of the year, we regret to announce that they will not be able to receive their school report.

Happy Book Hunting and Happy Summer Reading!

Optional Parent Teacher Conferences

We have set Tuesday – Wednesday 24th – 25th June to be the days for optional Parent/Teacher Conferences. If you book an appointment with a teacher the discussion in this meeting should be focused on the school report and any concerns you have with it. These two days are normal school days and teachers will be fulfilling their allocated teaching allotments on these days. If you do make an appointment please bring the report with you so this can be viewed during the discussion. Parents who wish to discuss matters other than those pertaining to the report cards can make an appointment with the teachers for another time.

Home Visiting

The visits by new Homeroom Teachers will be made on 22th August and 23th August. We hope that parents will cooperate with the School by setting aside some time for their child’s teacher to visit. We strongly recommend that parents take this opportunity to communicate with their child’s Homeroom Teacher.

If your family will not be in Shanghai during the above two days, it will be taken as an indication that you have waived this opportunity. Please understand that these home visits cannot be rescheduled.
