Dear YK Pao School Community,

What a wonderful Winter Concert! It was a pleasure to end the week on such a high note! Congratulations to everyone who took part, supported and made it such a special evening.

We are delighted to announce that we have been accepted as a member of the Council of International Schools. We look forward to a long and productive association with this excellent organization. Thanks to those members of the community who took the time to engage in the membership process. This really is excellent news.

This is the last week for Mike Young and Toyi Matos who have given excellent service to the school. They will be greatly missed. Together they have built two excellent departments in our school. We wish them well with their relocation to Peru where they will spend more time with family.

Have a great weekend!

Open Morning

The Open Morning for Y1 and Y4 is on December 16th next Tuesday, starting at 7:45 and finishing at 12:15. Parents of Y1 and 4 are very much welcomed to attend the event.

Open Morning provides a good opportunity for parents to get to know the school’s regular routines and their child’s daily life in school. To ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of students’ life in school, we encourage you to visit more classes rather than just stay where your child is, therefore, we are not going to prepare chairs for parents in the classroom, and parents please feel free to walk in and out. Principals will remind you of some tips and matters needing attention for enjoying the event and timetable will be prepared for the

Newsletter 05 December 2014

Dear YK Pao School Community,

The English Speech Day today was a wonderful event. The clear messages about values and citizenship were presented so imaginatively and creatively. The approach of each class was so different. Our sincere thanks go to the teachers in the English department, to the students for their efforts and to you, the parents, who were such a wonderful audience. The confidence, capability and enthusiasm of the students so clearly demonstrated a sense of teamwork and enjoyment.

Our Giving Tree Project culminated in a wonderful visit by some of our students and staff to deliver the donated items to a school for children of migrant workers. It was a truly special occasion and we would like to thank everyone for their support.

This week was extremely important for YK Pao School. We are in the process of seeking membership of an organization called the Council of International Schools. For two days we have been hosting Christine Green, the Regional Accreditation Officer. She spent Thursday with us at Changning and interacted with students, Board members, parents, teachers, Administrative Leaders and Principals. Chris will be engaging the Songjiang community in the same process today. These visits help us to establish effective quality assurance processes, but also, if membership is granted, enable us to join a vibrant and dynamic network of other high quality schools. We hope that this will be the start of a strong, important and very developmental partnership. I would particularly like to thank those parents who gave up their valuable time to meet with Christine. She came away with a real sense of how supportive and invested the parent community is in our school. We are hoping for a quick and positive outcome on our membership application.

The countdown to the Winter break has started! There are still many wonderful events to come and we look forward to the Winter Concert next week. In addition, the final football meeting takes place for our Year 1-4 students at the Shanghai American School this Sunday. Good luck to all involved and thanks to our parents, especially the coaches, for their invaluable support.

We would like to apologise for any confusion created by last week’s announcement on the school uniform policy, and particularly for the reference to the wearing of black shoes. To clarify, black shoes are required on formal uniform days and for any events at which formal uniform is required. We prefer students to wear black coloured trainers or shoes where possible on less formal days but non-marking sports shoes are good for PE days. No formal change to the policy will take place this academic year and the uniform committee, along with the Principals will share the expectations for next year. Thank you.

Wrap up warm! Have a good weekend.

Message from Character Education Committee

The 1st Annual YKPS Giving Tree Project was successfully completed on the 2nd of December; more details can be found in the attachment. Thank you very much for your support!

Message from Student Affairs Office

About Students Photo Collection

Student Affair Office has sent an e-mail to all parents about photo collection which is a notification from the ChangNing Education Bureau, and we got the feedback from Education Bureau that most families have uploaded the photo on the Education Bureau’s system. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

And this message is just a reminder to the parents who have not completed this procedure yet. According to the notice sent in October by the Channing Education Bureau, from this semester onwards, all Y1 students, Y5 students and the students in other year levels that do not have photos taken (students who haven’t been issued the electronic students ID cards) will be required to complete the photo collection procedure via the education Bureau System. These photos will be used for electronic student ID cards and graduation certificates by education Bureau.

Please complete this task before the deadline, which is Dec 29th, or students won’t get their ID cards or graduation certificates. Should you have any questions, please contact Ms Ellen Han from the Student Affairs Office at 61671999*1*8107.

 Message from the Art Department

Quote: The creative process is just as important as the art created.

Tip: Have a variety of different size sketchbooks so children get the opportunity to create on a whim.

The art department would like to say thank you to all the parents that came to the Parent teacher conferences. They were a big success in helping share our student’s artistic journey, by giving teachers the chance to explain the process involved in making art. During the conferences we talked about other ways our students can get creative. Year two, are currently in art club and it opens up this Friday for year three with Miss Sara. Art club dates correlate with the dates that students partake in their ceramics unit. This is so we can give all students the opportunity to come to art club.

Currently with Miss Sara in ART CLUB Students have been working together to make a Mandala.  A Mandala is a circular design made from different symbols and patterns.  Traditionally monks use colorful sands and spend hundreds of hours making them.  When they finish making their Mandala they wipe it away and put the sand in the river or ocean to send their prayer and wishes to the world.  When we are done painting it, we will honor it and keep it in our school to send all of our best wishes to our community.

Message from the Music Department

YK PAO ANNUAL WINTER CONCERT

The Annual Winter Concert will take place next Friday in the School Auditorium starting at 18:30. Tickets are initially reserved for parents of students. Due to the large numbers of students taking part, there is a restriction on the number of seats available with a limit of two tickets for each family of the performers.  These can be collected from the desk in reception.

The concert will include: Chinese Orchestra, Beginner Chinese Orchestra, Violin Groups, Cello Groups Orchestra, English Choir, Chinese Choir, Vocal Ensemble, Friday Choir, Wind Ensemble and Rock Band.

As usual we will have professional videographers and photographers at this event. Please do not take videos or photos of this event. Anyone who did not collect their DVDs of either the last Spring Concert or the 2013 Winter Concert can collect one from the music department.

Saturday School

Please note that this Saturday (6th December) is the last Saturday for the Saturday Music Programme before the Christmas Holiday.

Peninsula Hotel Christmas Tree Lighting

Last Friday a choir made up from members of English Choir sang three sets of Christmas carols at the Peninsula Hotel for their annual Christmas Tree Lighting. The students had worked hard rehearsing the carols over a series of Saturday and lunchtime rehearsals and the event was a resounding success with many commenting on the quality of the singing. In addition to providing a great opportunity for our students to perform, the Peninsula Hotel also fed them and made sure all were all looked after. I am sure that everyone who was there would agree that this was truly a wonderful evening for everyone concerned.

 

Message from PE Department

各位包校集体成员,

今天的英语演讲日活动真是一场盛会。孩子们非常富有想象力和创意地将价值观和公民意识的信息表达了出来,而每个班级所采用的表达方式也都不相同。衷心感谢英语组的老师们以及为了演讲日活动努力准备的孩子们,同时,我们也要感谢前来观摩活动的家长们。孩子们非常享受活动带给他们的乐趣,而他们表现出的热情、自信和能力也充分展示出了团队合作精神。

爱心树项目随着部分学生及员工代表将捐赠物品送去了民工子弟学校而被推向了活动的最高潮。这真是一个特别有意义的活动,感谢给予这个项目支持的各位包校成员们。

这一周是对包校及其重要的一周。我们在处于申请国际学校协会会员的过程之中。这两天,学校接待了国际学校协会的区域认证官员Christine Green女士。本周四,她在小学部会见了学生、理事、家长、老师、管理层和校长们。今天,Chris女士在松江进行了相同的访问安排。这类访问能帮助我们建立有效的确保办学质量的体系,同时,如果能成功申请成为会员,我们将能有机会加入其他优秀学校的行列之中,共享一个资源、信息、互动更丰富活跃的关系网络。我们也希望这能成为包校与其他优秀学校建立坚实的发展合作伙伴关系的基石。在此,我要特别感谢那些放弃自己宝贵时间前来与Christine女士会面的家长们。在访问结束时,Christine女士对包校家长群体对学校所付出的支持和投入的关注有了深刻的认识。在此,我们也希望能尽快收到会员申请成功的消息。

圣诞假期的倒数已经开始了!但丰富多彩的活动仍旧接踵而至,我们满心期待着即将在下周进行的冬季音乐会。此外,一至四年级学生将于本周日在上海美国学校进行周日足球赛的最后一场比赛。祝所有参与其中的学生好运,同时,我们也要感谢家长们,特别是教练们的大力支持。

非常抱歉因上周的一则关于黑色鞋子的校服政策引起了一些困惑。我们在此做一下澄清,学生在正装日和其他需要穿着正装的场合要配穿黑色皮鞋,我们希望学生在非正装日配穿黑色鞋子或黑色休闲运动鞋,在有体育课的日子里配穿无痕橡胶底的运动鞋即可。我们并不会在本学年正式修改校服政策,但会在明年对此做些改动,稍后校服委员会及校长们会分享进一步的具体信息。谢谢。

祝大家周末愉快,注意保暖!

引用:与艺术作品相比,其创作过程同样重要。

小提示:为孩子准备一些不同尺寸的速写本,灵光乍现时他们就能及时创作。

艺术组的老师们感谢各位前来参加家长老师信息会的家长们。通过见面会,艺术老师们得以有机会向家长们解释孩子们艺术创作的过程,也成功地与家长分享了孩子们的艺术成长历程。在见面会过程中,老师们也谈到了一些其他可以激发孩子创意的方法。近期,二年级的学生正在参加艺术俱乐部的活动,本周五开始五年级的学生将在Sara老师的指导下开展艺术俱乐部活动。艺术俱乐部的活动日期与陶艺活动的日期相错开,希望孩子们都能有机会参加艺术俱乐部。

最近,参加由Sara老师负责的艺术俱乐部的学生们正在创作曼荼罗。曼荼罗是由不同图案和符号组成的圆形设计。通常,僧人们会使用彩色的细沙和大量的时间来制作曼荼罗 。当曼荼罗完成之后,僧人们会将图案抹去并将这些细沙洒向河流与海洋,借此将他们的祝福散播的整个世界。等孩子们完成他们的曼荼罗后,我们会将之保存在学校里借以祝福我们的包校大集体。

半岛酒店圣诞点灯仪式演出

上周五, 由包校英语合唱团成员组成的一支合唱团为上海半岛酒店一年一度的圣诞树点灯仪式演唱了三组圣诞颂歌。 为了此次演出,学生们连续几周利用周六的休息时间以及平时午休的时间努力排练,因此最终我们的演出大获成功,好评如潮。这次半岛酒店除了为我们提供了一个很棒的演出机会外,还为我们的学生准备了美味的食物并确保他们得到很好的照料。相信当天每个在场的人都和我有同样的感受,大家度过了一个美好的夜晚。

Newsletter 28 November 2014

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had a tremendous week! Year 2, in particular, has been extremely busy with their visit to the Shanghai Museum and the Bund. In addition, their ‘Responsibility’ assembly today demonstrated how much they have been learning about important character traits.

Many thanks to those parents who supported the English Workshop evening on Thursday. It was an extremely well attended evening with approximately 100 parents on campus. The new format seemed to work well with parents choosing three out of six options. We hope you enjoyed it and that it was informative for you. We will be sharing the ‘Power Point’ presentations with all parents.

It is clear that many students are coming to school wearing footwear and clothing that do not conform to our school uniform. I would like to remind you to look at our school uniform policy. Please do ensure that your child has black shoes, particularly with formal uniform, and on days when they do not have PE. At this time of the year we have many performances and it is important that students wear the correct uniform. It may be necessary to exclude students from public performances if they are not dressed properly. We have mentioned this to the students and would like your support with this.

We are looking forward to the Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Peninsula Hotel with our Christmas Choir this evening. Good luck to them and also to our football and swimming teams who will be playing this weekend.

Enjoy the weekend and stay warm!

Recommendation Forms

Parents who need recommendation forms to be filled in regarding transferring to another school should send them to the Principals’ Office. We will arrange for teachers to fill in the forms. To avoid any confusion, please do not approach related teachers directly.

English Speech Festival

This year YK Pao School will celebrate its 4th English Speech Festival. The Speech Festival is a wonderful opportunity for all children to present in English to an audience. This year, the event will be held on Friday December 5th.  All Year levels will hold assemblies in the auditorium throughout the day.  The timetable for the day is as follows:

Message from the Library

Dear Parents

Ding-ding-ding, Christmas is around the corner! Have you seen Christmas trees and decorations on the streets? The Library has something even better: Christmas books!!! In December, you’ll see our special Christmas collection displayed in our Library. You are mostly welcome to visit our Christmas Collection Guide at: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/christmas over the weekend to have a sneak preview!

With the approaching of Christmas, Santa sent his little elves who gave our beautiful Library a festive touch lately! Everyone is thrilled by the sight of those colourful Christmas trees that were made of used magazines and the stunning “bookish” Christmas wreath at the door! Also, in December, all children are invited to join our Christmas Lucky Draw and win a chance to bring a Christmas present home if they borrow a book during break times. Special thanks to Ms Joni Bessler, our secret Santa, who donated those fabulous books to support this event.

What’s more, you may find some inspiring ideas for celebration from our new books! For more information on our monthly new collection, please visit: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/newbooks Let’s have some Christmas fun together!!

Lastly, I’m inviting all Year 5 parents to our book hunting! If your child is in Year 5 and there happens to be one book, Milkweed, at home, please return it to the Library as soon as possible. Please be reminded again that your child is allowed to take up to 3 Library items (4 for Year 5) for one week, and his/her borrowing privilege will be suspended if there is any overdue items. An overdue reminder will be sent to you via email every Friday.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Happy Christmassy Reading!

2014-2015 Student Ambassador Recruitment

Big thanks to our Y5 students for attending the ambassador recruitment activity.

The candidates will take turns to welcome guests, host and be a tour guide to lead the visitors around YK Pao School in the Information Meetings with Principals.

We have chosen 14 student ambassadors to participate in the Information Meetings with Principals in December and January.  Congratulations to those students again. Below is the students’ name list:

Head Lice

We have seen several cases of head lice recently and are checking daily to make sure no students at school have head lice. Washing hair often is a simple but effective prevention method, as is avoiding head-to-head contact. Meanwhile, please train your child to wear his/her own cap which is clearly labeled with the name.

Lice eggs (nits) look like tiny yellow, tan, or brown dots before they hatch. Lice lay nits on hair shafts close to the skin’s surface, where the temperature is perfect for keeping them warm until they hatch. Nits look similar to dandruff, only they can’t be removed by brushing or shaking them off. If you find head lice or eggs, please inform class teachers and the school nurse, seek medical treatment and keep your child at home until there are no eggs on the hair, including the dead eggs (Because we cannot estimate the hatchability for the eggs with naked eyes). You can contact our school nurse on 61671999-1-8131. Students returning to school after treatment should have their heads checked by the school nurse before proceeding to the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation.

Address from Professor Anna Sohmen, Chairman of YK Pao School

Message from PE Department

Warm Welcome

A warm welcome to our new member of the PE team, Ms. Lucy! Ms. Lucy joins us here at Primary after a very successful time at our Secondary campus. She is taking over Mr. Yuan Bin’s responsibilities and will take full charge of the Athletics, Table Tennis and Badminton teams, as well as help Coach Johnson and Coach Johnny with the Primary swim team. Welcome Lucy!

Good Luck

Best wishes go to our swim team this weekend. 23 swimmers will travel to the SSSA Tournament at Shanghai High School International Division to compete. Special best wishes also go to Year 5 Jacqueline Yang who will compete overseas at the Singapore Swimming Invitational this coming weekend. We send her all our best and wish her luck in the pool. Good luck to all our swimmers!

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. Many thanks for your support on this matter.

各位包校集体成员,

我们度过了精彩的一周!特别是二年级的学生,本周他们参观了上海博物馆并游览了外滩,此外,今早由他们负责主持的以“责任”为主题的全校性集会也向大家展示了这些日子以来他们在品格特征的学习和进步。

感谢本周四晚上前来参加英语课程工作坊的家长们。近百位家长出席了当晚的活动,他们从六个不同的工作坊中任选三个与老师们进行沟通,这种新的互动模式也非常成功。我们衷心希望您收获了有用的信息,也喜欢这样的沟通方式。我们会和所有家长分享相关的演示文件。

我们留意到很多学生上学穿着的衣服和鞋子并不符合校服要求。在此,我想提醒各位家长查看包校的校服政策。请确保您的孩子有与正装校服相配的黑色鞋子并且在没有体育课的上学日里也要穿黑色的鞋子。每一年的这个时节,学校都会组织或参与很多的表演活动,因此穿着正确的服装也是非常重要的。如果学生没能正确穿着校服,他也可能被取消公众表演的机会。我们已提醒过学生学校关于校服的规定,也请各位家长予以支持。

我们非常期待今晚在半岛酒店举行的亮灯仪式,包校的合唱团将在仪式上进行表演。祝他们好运,同时也祝本周末参加足球和游泳比赛的小队员们好运。

祝您周末愉快,注意保暖!

申请、推荐表格

如果家长有需要学校填写转学用申请、推荐表格,请将表格送至校长办公室,我们会统一安排相关老师填写。请不要直接找个别老师,以免造成不必要的混乱。

英语演讲日

今年,包校学生即将迎来自己的第四届英语演讲日活动。演讲日活动为孩子们提供了绝好的机会展现其演讲和语言能力。今年的活动将于12月5日即下周五举行,这一天里,各年级将轮流在礼堂进行集会,集会的时间安排如下:

8:50-10:15即第一、二节课时段:三、四年级集会

10:45-12:10即第三、四节课时段:一、二年级集会

13:30-15:00即第五、六节课时段:五年级集会

请在集会开始时准时到场。

每个年级都会围绕一个共同的主题进行准备和演讲,今年的主题是他们各自在全校性集会时负责诠释的包校核心价值。我们诚邀各位家长前来参加自己孩子所在的年级英语演讲集会。我们期待您的出席。

一年级PCL1和英语数学课程的家长信息会

家长见面会后,部分一年级学生开始了PCL1和英语数学课程的学习。为了让这些家长对包校PCL1和英语数学课有所了解,PCL1组长朱丹仪和英语数学组长施敏宇将于12月5日下午三点在西楼1104会议室举行一年级PCL1和英语数学课程的家长信息会,想要了解相关情况的家长可以来校参加。同时也欢迎对PCL1和英语数学课程感兴趣的非一年级家长参加此次信息会。

来自图书馆的信息

叮~叮~叮~,圣诞节的脚步离我们越来越近了!您是否已在大街上感受到了浓浓的圣诞气氛?图书馆也为圣诞节做了特别的布置——圣诞书籍角!!!在整个十二月中,图书馆将会展示所有圣诞相关书籍。非常欢迎大家登陆我们的圣诞书籍导览先睹为快:http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/christmas

随着圣诞节的临近,圣诞老人派他的小精灵给我们美丽的图书馆增添了热烈的节日气氛!当大家看到五颜六色的旧杂志圣诞树和令人惊叹的“书籍”圣诞花环时都激动不已!同时,在十二月,所有的孩子们都有机会参加我们的圣诞抽奖,如果他们在课间休息时段借阅一本书籍,就有机会把圣诞礼物带回家。特别感谢我们的神秘圣诞老人——Joni Bessler女士为我们提供了精美的书籍作为本次活动的奖品。

此外,你也可以从我们十二月新书推荐中找到一些庆祝圣诞的新点子!更多信息,请访问图书馆的在线新书推荐:http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/newbooks让我们一起度过一个欢乐的圣诞!

最后,我想邀请所有五年的家长们为我们搜索一本书!如果您在家中发现一本名为《Milkweed》的书籍,请将它尽快还给图书馆。请注意,你的孩子可最多同时借阅3本书籍(五年级4本),借阅期限为1周。如果他有任何超期书籍或物品,他的借阅权限将会被暂停,直至归还所有超期书籍或物品。超期通知将每周五通过电子邮件发送给您。

谢谢您的支持与理解。祝您圣诞愉快!

头虱

近日有一些学生感染头虱,学校已经开展了检查和消毒工作,以确保在校学生中没有头虱。经常洗头是有效的预防方法,同时还应尽量避免头与头的触碰,也请培训你的孩子只带自己的帽子(这需要帽子的名字标示十分清楚才能做到)。

头虱虫卵呈微小颗粒,孵化前为黄色,棕褐色或褐色。它们在头发毛囊附近接近皮肤表面的地方产卵,那里的温度有利于卵的孵化。虫卵看上去像头屑,只是它们无法被梳下来或摇下来。如果您发现孩子头发上有头虱或虫卵,希望您积极为孩子治疗,并告知校医或班主任,校医联系电话61671999-1-8131。在没有治愈好—– 头发上没有任何虫卵,包括死去的虫卵(因为我们无法通过肉眼去鉴别)之前,请您让孩子待在家里,已经生头虱的学生一定要校医复查没有虱卵后方可复课,谢谢配合。

来自体育部的信息

热烈欢迎

让我们欢迎王春晖老师成为小学部体育组的一员!王老师在包校中学部的工作表现非常出色,现在她加入到了小学部来接手袁斌老师的工作,全面负责田径、乒乓球和羽毛球的训练,同时,她还会协助Johnson和Johnny训练游泳队。欢迎王老师的加入!

祝好运

祝我们的游泳选手们在本周末的比赛中获得好成绩。23位选手将参加由上海学校体育协会组织的在上海中学国际部进行的游泳比赛。此外,我们还要向五年级的杨熙佳同学送上最真挚的祝福,她将于周末参加新加坡游泳邀请赛。祝所有的选手们都好运!

游泳课

如果学生不能上体育课或游泳课,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。非常感谢您的支持!

Newsletter 21 November 2014

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We hope that the parent teacher conferences went well this week, and that you found the interaction with the teachers valuable. It was a pleasure meeting with so many of you and receiving such valuable feedback.

Just to update you regarding the climbing frame area. Following several meetings and consulting with experts and members of the Student Council, we have agreed to keep the existing climbing frames and to replace the flooring to ensure enhanced safety in this area. The work will require some considerable excavation, and the cost is significant. We plan to carry out the work during the Christmas break, but details will be confirmed once the plans are finalized.

As you can see from the details below, we continue to be extremely busy. The introduction of new school reports and the PowerSchool information management system are keeping us all busy. Please do take the time to log on to the new system using the password and log on details supplied to you earlier this week. Doing so will give you access to a number of online facilities that are new.

Good luck to our choir who rehears on Saturday and to our footballers who will play in the regular Sunday football fixtures at the Shanghai American School.

Finally, our sincerest good wishes to Michelle Ip and Jon Banks who are getting married in Hong Kong this weekend. As an all YK Pao School couple, we wish them every happiness.

Have a good weekend and keep warm!

Well done to all involved and thank you to the parents for your fantastic support.

各位包校集体成员,

本周的家长老师见面会进行得很顺利,我们也希望您能觉得这一类的互动对您有所帮助。很高兴能和这么多的家长见面并倾听各位宝贵的意见,这对我们来说也是很有意义的。

关于攀爬架的议题,我们也有了新进展。经历了几次讨论会议之后,我们综合了专家的意见并聆听了学生们的心声,现在我们决定保留攀爬架设施并更换地面材料以加强该区域的安全性。地面更换工程涉及到了大量的挖掘工作,而改造成本也是非常可观的。我们计划在圣诞节期间进行施工,待施工计划完成后我们将确认具体安排。

从校长来信的内容里您可以获悉,学校近期正忙于新报告卡和PowerSchool管理系统的引入。烦请各位家长根据本周早些时候提供给您的操作信息,使用密码登陆到新的系统,这样做能够让您使用一些新的在线功能。

此外,让我们祝周六在校练习的合唱团成员们排练愉快,也祝在上海美国学校参加常规足球赛的小运动员们赛出好成绩。

最后,让我们向Michelle Ip老师和Jon Banks老师送上最真挚的祝福,他们将于本周末在香港完婚。作为一对包校伴侣,让我们祝福他们幸福美满。

祝您周末愉快、注意保暖!

Newsletter 14 November 2014

Dear YK Pao School Community,

It seems as if winter is approaching! The pollution levels are rising and we would therefore like you to encourage your children to wear face masks on high pollution days. The levels went well above 200 ppm this week. We had an analysis of the air filtering systems and it is re-assuring to know that the results indicate a very significantly lower level of particulates in the air inside the building. We are refining our pollution practices to ensure that we do all we can to ensure student comfort and safety.

The Year Three students have been very excited all week! Their ‘sleepover’ in school is always a highlight and I am sure that when they (and their teachers) return home on Saturday they will have many stories to tell! Thanks to Miss Sukie and her team of volunteers for their support of this lovely event.

We look forward to seeing you for the Parent-Teacher Conferences next week. Do please try to meet with your child’s teacher. It helps ensure that the partnership between us is strong. When home and school work closely together, everybody benefits; especially the children!

Have a good weekend and keep warm!

Library Corner

Dear Parents

It seems as if the school year just started yesterday! We are, however, going to say goodbye to 2014 in less than 2 months! I hope you all enjoyed the books from our first Book Club, and I’m thrilled to announce that the second Book Club of the year has just started. This time, we are working with ‘Scholastic’, one of the world’s most renowned publishers. If you missed our previous Book Club, do make sure you have the chance to get involved with this one! Please fill in the order form and return it to your child’s class teacher with exact amount of book price before November 24, 2014. All your books will arrive at YK Pao after Christmas Break.

One of the advantages of being a YK Pao student is to be able to enjoy reading a great variety of books, and to share a love of literature. However, it is sad to realize that there are currently almost 700 books that have not been circulated for more than a month, because they are all overdue. Please be reminded that anyone who has any overdue items will be suspended from borrowing. Unfortunately, this includes books to support the academic programmes. It is important that students understand their responsibility to other library users. You will receive a notice if your child has any overdue items. Please encourage him/her to return the book or to pay for the cost of a replacement if it has been lost. You will find our Library Policy at: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/primary_library should you have any confusion or questions.

Happy Book Shopping/Hunting!

Pastoral Care Corner

For this week’s Pastoral Care Corner, I thought it would be a good idea to review responsibility when children go online. These days there are many inappropriate or even dangerous information or users of the internet. It’s always wise to teach children that safe surfing should always be practiced. Attached is a contract that parents and children can sign to follow ten simple rules of safe surfing.

 Pastoral Care Corner Nov. 14 2014

Uniform Policy

We believe that wearing a uniform induces a sense of orderliness and belonging to the school community. As the winter is approaching, please check the winter uniform information from student’s homework diary and here we want to remind again that UGG-like boots are not be worn to school as they present a safety hazard.

No EP Classes or Late Supervision on November 20th or 21st 

There will be no EP classes or late supervision on November 20th or 21st due to the Parent/Teacher Conferences as teachers will be busy meeting with parents. Please arrange transportation for your child accordingly.

Message from PTA

The third PTA meeting of the year will be held at 14:00-16:00 on 19th November 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:

-       Report from Health & Safety Committee

-       Review on Giving Tree Programme

-       Idea of forming an Academic Committee

-       Principal Corner

Reminder: Giving Tree Bags are due by Tuesday, November 18th

Thank you to those who have already submitted their filled bags. We have received around 220 bags so far and have 89 more to go!  We are overwhelmed by the compassion of YK Pao School families and know that the migrant students receiving the bags will be very touched by your generosity.

Thank you again for your support of the migrant students at Chen’s Dam Primary School!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Shane Vey (shane.vey@ykpaoschool.cn) or Karla Sy (karla.sy@ykpaoschool.cn).

CTY Test Reminder

John Hopkins’ Center for Talented Youth (CTY) will offering a paper-based School and College Ability Test (SCAT) on the YK Pao School Primary Campus on November 29, 2015. The SCAT is designed for students who are academically advanced, and who are interested in participating in either CTY’s online or summer programs.

Kindly be reminded that the registration for the SCAT test will be closed this coming Sunday night.  If you are interested, but haven’t yet registered, please do so ASAP and contact with CTY at CTYEastAsia@jhu.edu.

Message from PE Department

Congratulations!

Congratulations to our U11 Girl’s Football Team. They were runners up in their first SSSA tournament of the season last Saturday at SUIS (Hongqiao). The team consisted of Years 3,4,5 Girls made it through all the way to the final only to be narrowly beaten on penalty kicks at the end of a pulsating final match vs SUIS. The Girls did not let in a single goal throughout the tournament until the penalty kicks and played some great team football. Well done to all those involved, a wonderful way to start their season.

Football

Letters have been given out this week to the students involved in next week’s football friendly matches vs WISS (Tuesday) and Dulwich College Shanghai (Wednesday). Please check the parent’s letter for the details. We are competing with some of the top international schools in Shanghai and building a very strong network of international schools to play against. Good luck to all the teams involved!

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. Many thanks for your support on this matter.

November 20th and 21st

Below is the PE teacher list for each class which we also have shared with everyone via the notice letter regarding Parent Teacher Conferences, please book (http://ptc.ykpaoschool.cn) the PE teacher according to the class your child/children attend

各位包校集体成员,

冬季正渐渐临近,而上海的空气污染指数也在逐步攀升,因此,我们建议您鼓励孩子在污染严重的情况下带上口罩。本周,污染指数也曾超过200,我们对新安装的新风系统进行了测试,检测的数值显示我们室内颗粒物浓度指数也是非常低的。目前,我们正在微调我们的污染应对措施以确保孩子们能度过一个安全舒适的冬季。

三年级的孩子们已经激动了一个星期了!他们的在校过夜活动总是非常出挑精彩的,我敢肯定等他们(和他们的老师)周六回到家的时候,一定有很多故事要告诉你。感谢孙懿凡老师和她的志愿者团队支持本次活动。

我们期待下周能在家长老师见面会上与您会面。还望各位家长能尽可能地与自己孩子的老师见个面,这也能让我们的合作关系更为牢固。当家校紧密合作时,每一方都能受益,特别是我们的孩子!

祝您周末愉快、注意保暖!

图书角

亲爱的家长,

时间飞逝,转眼间2014年只剩下不到2个月了!我希望大家都已从我们第一次的图书俱乐部活动中有所收获,同时也很高兴地通知大家,本学期的第二轮图书俱乐部订购活动已经开始了。本次图书俱乐部活动是和全球非常知名的学乐图书俱乐部合作。如果您不小心错过了上一次的订购活动,请一定不要错过本次的圣诞特别订购。请将您的订单和相应金额的现金放入信封,并写上孩子的姓名和班级,请务必在2014年11月24日前将信封交给所在班级的班主任。您所订购的书籍将于圣诞假期后送抵学校。

成为包校学生的一大好处是能够阅读大量的书籍并与他人分享阅读的乐趣。但是,我们发现图书馆有超过700册图书已超期,并且这些书已经超期1个月以上。特别提醒,如果您的孩子有任何超期书籍或物品(包括教材、字典和Literature Circle书籍),他将无法从图书馆再借阅任何书籍或物品直至归还或赔偿已超期书籍或物品。这样做是为了让他们认识到每个人需要对自己所借物品负责。今后,当您的孩子有任何超期书籍或物品,您将会从图书馆收到超期通知。请帮助我们一起督促您的孩子准时归还书籍或前往图书馆赔偿已遗失书籍。您可以在我们的图书馆网站http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/primary_library找到详细的借阅规定。

祝您在本次的图书俱乐部订购活动中有所收获!

人文关怀角

对于本周的人文关怀角,我觉得趁这个机会与孩子们重审一下上网时的个人责任是个很不错的主意。现如今的网络上充斥了很多不适宜的,甚至具有危险性的信息或心存不轨的网络用户。时刻提醒孩子要注意网络安全是非常明智且必要的。附件内是10条关于安全上网的规则,可以作为一份契约让家长和学生签署。

 Pastoral Care Corner Nov. 14 2014

校服政策

学生在学校应统一穿着校服,这让人感觉井然有序且有归属感。并且这也抑制了学生之间对衣着的攀比之风。随着冬日临近,请查阅家庭作业日志上的冬季校服信息,做好更换校服的工作。我们再次想要提醒大家的是,为安全起见,学生不能在校穿雪地靴(UGG类的靴子)。

112021日无拓展课及晚托安排

由于家长老师见面会将于11月20、21日进行,这两天下午我们将不开设拓展课。请家长做好接孩子回家的安排。敬请留意,鉴于老师都将忙于家长见面会,20日也没有晚托服务提供,请准时来接孩子。谢谢。

来自家校协力会的消息

11月19日下午2点到4点,我们将在学校西楼1104会议室召开本学期的第三次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:

-       健康安全委员会工作通报

-       爱心树项目的回顾

-       关于成立学术委员会的想法

-       校长信息

提醒:爱心树礼品袋上交截止日期为1118日,下周二

我们收到了很多装满大家爱心的礼品袋,谢谢大家的支持。截止到目前为止,我们已经收到了近220个礼品袋,还有89个礼品袋在准备当中!包校大家庭真是一个充满热情和爱心的集体,相信陈家坝学校的孩子们也会感动于大家的慷慨资助。

再次感谢您对陈家坝学校民工子弟的大力支持!

如果您还有任何问题,请联系Shane老师(shane.vey@ykpaoschool.cn)或者Karla老师(karla.sy@ykpaoschool.cn)。
