Newsletter 13 June 2014

各位包校集体成员:

我们又度过了繁忙的一周,测试周自上周四起至本周三结束,我们每天在给孩子们加油鼓劲,希望孩子们能尽力专注于当前的各项任务,包括测试任务,这样才能取得进步,让家校携手传递相同的信息给我们的孩子!

虽然测试周结束了,但是学习仍每天在发生直到学期最后一天。无论在学业领域还是各项教学活动仍将继续。中国文化周已于本周四拉开序幕,整个活动将于24日结束,每个年级有不同的主题,也欢迎家长来参与,关于开放时间请留意校长来信中语文组的信息。我们希望家长不要因出游计划而轻易请事假,孩子正规的学术学习也需要得到重视。落掉许多课程对学生学习极为不利,尤其是在我们这样的富有挑战的双语学校。

本周四,我们也迎来了一年级新生及家长,我真想为我们现在的一年级孩子鼓掌。他们热情接待并细心陪伴了学弟学妹近半天。孩子们这一年来的成长和进步真让我们欣慰和骄傲。

由探索组和艺术部门联合举办的园艺展十分成功,感谢前来参观的家长。我们都被孩子们的创意和才华所折服。包校的孩子们只需一个舞台就会发光闪耀!

离本学期最后一天上学日仅剩9天时间了,让我们共同坚持到最后,认真度过每一天,因为学习任务在包校从未停歇!

Mike校长已于今天返校工作,相信他的广州之行颇有裨益。

校车换乘

我们发现,部分乘坐校车的学生有时候在没有告知后勤部门和巴士妈妈的情况下私自换乘校车,进而致使整车小朋友空等造成他人不便。以后大家如有换乘需求,请直接联系巴士妈妈或后勤部门的工作人员。他们会及时检查另一辆校车的学生情况以确保学生安全,若条件允许,我们将准许换乘申请。此服务只针对乘坐校车的学生,尽请谅解。感谢您的理解与合作。

来自学生处的信息

本周四6月12日,我们进行了新1年级的入学指导活动。期间我们接待了来自近100个家庭的家长和小朋友。包校1年级的同学非常热情的与新生结对,带领他们度过了一个非常愉快的上午;家长们在礼堂听了校长和老师们的介绍,掌握了新生入学的重要信息,相信他们将很快融入我们包校这个大家庭。

来自图书馆的消息

亲爱的家长们,

希望您的孩子已为下周即将开始的暑期10本书借阅计划做好了准备!请注意,此借阅计划仅针对1-4年级学生,并且该学生已在此之前清空了他的账户。我们很遗憾的通知,由于管理上的问题,5年级和即将离开包校的学生不具有参加本次暑期借阅计划的资格。这并不意味着你们将无好书可读!我们欢迎所有学生登录TumbleBook 在线图书馆(www.tumblebooklibrary.com),还在等什么,赶快去图书馆向图书管理员索取账户和密码吧!

另外,TumbleBook还很慷慨地向所有包校的学生提供了针对高年级学生和高阶阅读者的暑期阅读计划。以下账号3个月内有效,可以在任何有网络的地方无限次链接小说、非小说、视频和漫画。只需轻轻点击一下,你即可拥有整个图书馆!

可选的家长老师见面会

我们将6月24日(周二)和6月25日(周三)设定为可选的家长老师见面会日期。此次您与老师的面谈应聚焦在学生报告卡上,您可以与老师探讨任何与报告卡有关的问题。在这两天中,学校正常上课,老师进行正常的教学。会面当天,请将您孩子的报告卡带来,便于在面谈中探讨。如果家长想了解报告卡以外的事宜,请另择时间再约老师。

家访信息

今年,班主任老师将集中在8月22至8月23日这两天内完成家访任务,希望家长们能早早了解并尽力支持,提前安排好你的个人家庭旅行计划,我们强烈建议你不要错过这样一次与班主任老师交流的大好机会。

若你的家庭选择此两天内不在上海,则将被视为自行放弃此交流的机会,学校将不再另行安排家访时间,敬请谅解。

来自音乐组的消息

本周六及下周六包括周六合唱团和打击乐俱乐部等在内的课程都将照常上课。然而由于张洪燕老师和刘叶楠老师最近身体欠佳,本周六的中国民乐团、初级民乐团以及二胡私教课将取消一次

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Another busy week is just about to finish, the end-semester assessment began last Thursday and finished this Wednesday. We’ve been encouraging students every day to focus on the things that they are doing currently which includes assessment so that they can keep improving themselves. Stay focused it the message that we want to pass to our students. Let’s all keep the consistency with our children!

Though the end-semester assessment has been done, teaching and learning continues to the end of the semester. So students still need to work on academic areas and enjoy all different activities. The Chinese Culture Week has kicked off this Thursday, and activity will last until 24th June, we welcome parents come and enjoy it as well. Each cohort has their own topic and learning target, you will see more details from Mandarin Department in the contents below. Parents please understand that we value cultivating a consistent learning habit for our children, and it’s extremely important for children who study in a bilingual school like us, so it will be very much appreciated that you don’t give up your children’ learning opportunities just for a longer journey.

We welcomed all new Y1 students and parents to the Orientation Day held on Thursday morning. Let’s give a big round of applause to our existing Y1 students. They warmly received the newcomers and accompanied them carefully for a whole morning. You can really see their growth and improvement through that past year. I’m so gratified and proud of them.

The Garden Art Exhibition run by the EU and Art Departments was a big success. Thank you for coming to support the students and we are all impressed by their creation and talents. A platform is all they need to show themselves off.

Only 9 days left before the semester end, as lives and studies keep going, let’s hang in there and enjoy every single day of it to the end.

Mr. Spencer is back to school today, and we believe that he has had a successful trip.

News from the Mandarin Department

School Bus Related Issues

We’ve noticed that without informing our Logistic Department or the Bus Mommies, some students occasionally took a different school bus rather than the one s/he usually takes to go back home. It caused some inconvenience when a whole bus of students was kept waiting for one student while s/he left with another bus. Please be advised when referring to issues related to school buses, please talk to bus mommies and our Logistic Department directly. Once the Logistic Department is informed, they will check the bus capacity for safety matters then decide if this requirement can be approved or not, and please be advised this is only available for school bus riders. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Message from SAO

We had our New Y1 Orientation this Thursday (12th June). About 100 Families visited YKPS. The kids had a very wonderful time with their shadow buddy from YKPS Y1 students. The Parents got very important information about YKPS from our principal and teachers. They will join the YK Pao Family very soon.

Message from the Library

We hope your little ones are ready to get TEN books for summer from the Library next week! Please be reminded again that only Year 1 to Year 4 children who clear their loan record are able to borrow books for summer. We regret to announce that Year 5 and leaving students are not eligible for our Summer Borrowing Program due to the difficulty of management. It doesn’t mean the end of access to great literature! All students are welcome to use our YK Pao TumbleBook Library (www.tumblebooklibrary.com), our eBook database. Please do not hesitate to contact our Library staff for the username and password.

Furthermore, TumbleBook also generously provides all YK Pao students a Summer Reading Program for older children or advanced readers, such as our Year 5 students.

Optional Parent Teacher Conferences

We have set Tuesday – Wednesday 24th – 25th June to be the days for optional Parent/Teacher Conferences.

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 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.

各位包校集体成员:

我们终于迎来了热情的夏天,在此,我们想要提醒大家关于帽子和水的问题。请各位家长务必提醒孩子们在夏天注意补充水分和避免长时间暴晒的重要性。

无论是学校员工还是学生,本周他们忙碌依旧。学生报告卡的工作已经处于收尾阶段,老师们也在对今年的课程进行总结和反思,学生们的期末测试将于下星期三全部结束,此外,全体师生们还在为中国文化周、数学活动和结合艺术与探索课程的极具创意的园艺展览做积极准备,五年级的学生更是紧锣密鼓地筹备着自己的毕业典礼。

祝贺我们的小运动员和各体育团队,今晚他们将庆祝自己这一年来的收获。体育是包校的一个强项,让我们借今晚的活动表彰这一年来积极进取、坚持不懈的孩子们,他们不仅展示了自己的风采,更为学校争得了荣誉。

一些家长已经在询问下一学年的教师安排了,我们将在本学期的最后一周公布此信息。调整教师安排是一个非常复杂的过程,它需要非常细致的规划和协调,还望各位家长予以理解和支持。

时光飞逝,本学年只剩14个正常上学日了,这真是让人难以置信!尽管学期末的事务繁杂,但我们仍会确保孩子们在庆祝收获与成长的同时对自己的表现进行反思与总结,并着重考虑新学年的个人目标。

最近几周,学校已经启动了小范围的校园整修工程,暑假期间将会有更大的工程开展。今年的年度基金对校园整修给予了极大的支持,校园环境的改进也将为学生和老师创造更好的教学氛围。扩建后的图书馆更是让人雀跃期待!

祝您周末愉快!

学费通知

在校生的学费通知将于6月16号(周一) 以邮件形式发出,小学部6月17号(周二)发放书面通知,初中部的家长将于6月20号(周五)收到书面通知。请家长在收到学费通知后于付款期限内尽早安排支付学费。

关于高中部学费通知,请等候学校进一步消息。

事假

期末测试周将于下周三结束,但学校的课程和教学仍将照常进行直至学期最后一天。测试周后学生仍将在课堂上投入学习。请避免不必要的事假以免影响学生的正常学习。此外还请注意学生每年只能请事假六天,超过的天数将被作为未经学校批准的事假标明在报告卡上。

报告卡翻译

鉴于学校的人力有限,且学期末为学校最繁忙的阶段之一,学校目前仅提供翻译当前学期的报告卡评语,如果您需要翻译本学期的报告卡评语,请于6月9日至6月20日之间通过邮件或电话的方式向执行校长办公室的Angela Hua老师提交翻译申请,6月20日为截止日期,之后提交的翻译申请将不被受理。

艺术组与探索组合作的艺术展

各位亲爱的家长,

我在此向您发出诚挚的邀请,请您于6月12日下午4点至6点间前来参观我校4年级和5年级学生的艺术展。该展览将在西楼1楼、4楼和5楼以及空中花园和楼梯两旁举行。Rob Miller老师和我都认为在空中花园内举行艺术展将会令人感到非常的赏心悦目,所以我们在花园内放置了一些展品。

这次的艺术展是艺术课和探索课合作完成的。我们将展出许多由学生制作的代表古代文明的陶艺作品。在艺术展开始前的一周,五年级学生将在探索课和美术课上学习如何对博物馆展品进行布置,我们将以此拉开本次展览的序幕。

请您加入我们,一起为我们聪明又勤奋的学生们庆祝他们的艺术展!

同时,感谢您对我们学校一直以来的支持。

拓展课安排

学期临近尾声,借此机会我们想提醒各位,下周是本学期拓展课程的最后一周,我们欢迎家长来校观摩上课情况。请注意的是,由于期末测试周的原因,下周三下午没有拓展课安排。谢谢您的关注。

周六音乐项目

本周起所有的周六音乐课程将恢复上课。

621为本学期最后一次周六课

Dear YK Pao School Community,

The summer is certainly upon us and we need to remind everyone about hats and water again. Please do help to remind your child/ren that at this time of year it is important to re-hydrate regularly and to protect themselves from lengthy exposure to direct sunshine.

This week has been busy for staff and students in many ways. The school reports are being finalised for the end of the semester, staff are also engaged in reviewing and reflecting upon this year’s curriculum, our assessment week finishes in the middle of next week and the staff and students are busy preparing for Chinese cultural week, the Year 5 Graduation, Maths Activity Week and the very creative Garden Art Show which is a collaboration between the Art and EU Department.

Congratulations to all of our athletes and sports teams whose achievements will be celebrated this evening. This is an area of real strength in our school, and it is right that we celebrate the effort and attitude of everyone who has contributed to and represented themselves and the school so superbly this year.

Many parents have been asking about the staff allocations for next year. We will forward this information during the last week of term. Do please understand that this is a very complex process which needs very detailed planning.

It is difficult to believe that we only have 14 school days left before the end of this academic year! We know that there is still a great deal to do, but we will do all that we can to ensure that our students finish this extremely busy year in a way which encourages them to reflect upon and celebrate their achievements, as well as focus on their future goals.

Recent weeks and the summer holidays will see lots of building and improvement work upon our campus. These works which, in large part, are attributable to the generous contributions made to this year’s Annual Fund, will enable us to improve provision for students staff and parents. The new library extension in particular, is awaited with real excitement!

Have a good weekend!

Notice on Tuition Fee

Please be advised that we are going to email the fee collection notice to families of our existing students on Monday, 16th June. A hard copy notice will be issued to Primary families on Tuesday, 17th June, and Secondary families will get theirs on Friday, 20th June.

We hope this will enable parents to plan their schedules and complete fee payments on time.

Further information about Senior High School tuition will be shared soon.

Personal Leave

The assessment week will be finished next Wednesday, however, school will continue with regular programme until the last day. Learning does not end after the semester assessments and all students should still be fully engaged in classes. Please avoid unnecessary utilization of the children’s personal leave as it might affect their learning progress. And as a gentle reminder, students may only take six leave days per year.  Any day taken over this number will be recorded on their school report.

School Report Translation

As we have limited manpower, and end of semester is one of the busiest periods of the school, at present we can only help to provide the translation of the current semester’s School Report. If you need to translate this semester’s School Report, please submit your translation request to Angela Hua in the Executive Principal’s Office from 9th to 20th June by email or phone. 20th June is the deadline, any request after the deadline will not be accepted.

Parents can come to school to get the translated School Report during 4th July to 5th September.

Garden Art Show

Dear Parents,

I would like to cordially invite you to the Garden Art Show on June 12th, from 4-6pm, featuring art by Year 4 and 5 students. This exhibit will be on floors 1, 4 and 5 of the West building as well as in the Pavilion Terrace and stairwells. Both Rob Miller and I thought it would be nice to have an exhibit that includes our wonderful garden, so we are filling it with art, too.

This exhibition is the result of collaboration between the Art and EU departments and it features many pieces of pottery representing ancient civilizations. This event will be a closing reception as Y5 students will be learning how to set up a museum exhibit over the one week period before the show as part of their EU and Art curriculum.

Please join us in celebrating our wonderful and talented students!

Thank you very much for your continued support of our creative community,

Anne Murray

Enrichment Programme

As the end of the semester approaches, we would like to remind you that next week is the last week for EP classes this year and parents are welcome to observe the classes if interested. Please be advised that due to Assessment Week arrangement, there will be no EP classes on Wednesday afternoon. Thank you for your attention.

Saturday Music Programme

All Saturday activities within the Saturday Music Programme are running from this Saturday.

各位包校集体成员:

夏天好像真的来了!鉴于这几天气温偏高,我们已经开始提醒学生带好水壶来校,在室外玩耍时也要带好帽子。烦请各位家长也提醒自己的孩子照顾好自己。遮阳和补水是在夏天保持健康的两个重要方法。

祝贺上周五在春季音乐会上表演的学生们。200多名学生为大家展示了他们超凡的才艺,相应的,各位指导老师的功力也可见一斑。感谢各位的大力支持,您的付出使我们度过了一个难忘的夜晚。

部分学生将在今晚的基金会活动上表演以庆祝年度基金在这一年来取得的丰硕成果。由于学生家长和包校集体成员们的慷慨捐赠,我们也得以促成很多让学校成员受益的项目和活动,今天的庆祝活动也给了我们与大家分享信息的机会。我们衷心感谢大家的支持,让很多有意义的项目得以成形进而丰富学生的学习体验和教师们的教学经验。

学校运动队的学生和教练们趁着这个长周末可以好好休养调整几天了。但是参加骑行活动的学生和家长们请于本周六8:00准时到校,他们将从长宁校区出发骑车去松江校区。由于预报本周日有雨,因此活动已由周日调整至了周六。祝各位骑行俱乐部的骑手们好运!

今天,四、五年级在松江的体育活动日进行得真是热火朝天,所有参加此次活动的师生和家长都度过了非常愉快的一天。今年新的活动形式也大获成功,感谢策划和协调此次活动的各位老师,让我们中、小学部的学生和员工有了相互合作的机会。

在过去两周里,我们听说有个别家长接到了欺诈电话或短信,要求他们转账以支付孩子在体育课上因意外事故或受伤而需要紧急手术的相关费用。幸运的是,我们在之前已和家长们沟通了这一类欺诈案件,因此接到电话或短信的家长及时联系了学校而避免了经济损失。我们想再次重申,根据学校政策规定,学生在上学期间受伤的话,班主任老师或校医会及时联系相关家长。如果您接到了其他人打来电话或短信说孩子受伤,请立即与班主任或校医联系确认以免上当受骗。

校医办公室电话:61671999*8131/8132

此外,学校还特意配置了紧急联络热线在学生上学期间开通。如果您不能通过学校分机联系到校医或班主任老师,您也可拔打18321335325和校方确认信息。

我们在学生的家庭作业日志的62页上分享了主要部门的联系信息,我们希望通过这些信息的帮助,您能找到合适的人为您提供更到位的咨询。请合理使用联络信息以加强家校之间畅通高效的交流与沟通。

经奖学金委员会决议,我们很高兴地宣布,以下学生获得2014-2015学年度的中学部奖学金:

中学部男生奖学金 : 赵梓骏、 陈弘毅

祝贺他们!

从下周起开始执行不戴帽子不能户外活动的政策

家长手册中有记录到我们鼓励包校学生在天气状况允许和空气质量良好的情况下,在课间休息和午间休息的时候到户外玩耍,因此孩子们会花较多时间在户外的阳光下玩耍。为了保护他们的皮肤不被紫外线侵害,我们要求孩子在校期间到户外玩耍时需带上校帽。 帽子上必须注明孩子的中英文姓名,以防丢失。若在夏天,有孩子没带帽子的话,他们将不能在户外玩耍:不戴帽子不能进行外活!

来自图书馆的信息

暑假已近在眼前了!

研究表明,错过暑假黄金阅读时间的孩子将失去近三个月的阅读进度。正因为如此,我鼓励您和您的孩子在暑假中也能保持良好的阅读习惯。

由于今年暑假期间图书馆将关闭扩建,我们将于6月16-20日启动特别的假期借阅项目,并且从6月23日起,图书馆将开始数据库转移工作,同时停止对外开放。所有同学都可以为你的假期阅读借阅10本书,但前提是在6月13日前必须归还你现在手上的所有图书馆书籍(包括DVD、教材、字典等)。

所有暑期阅读项目中借阅的图书需要在开学第一天8月25日归还图书馆,否则将视为超期图书处理。

为了丰富同学们的阅读材料,我们很高兴的宣布,包校已经正式成为TumbleBook的会员!TumbleBook图书馆是一个面向小学生的在线电子书网站,在此网站中你可以找到大量的绘本、章节小说、视频和漫画等多种多样的阅读材料。你只需登录www.tumblebooklibrary.com,如需用户名和密码,请联系图书馆工作人员。

阅读愉快!

英语期末测试

今年,各个年级将进行一系列的诊断性测试作为英语学科的期末测试。老师将从写作、阅读流利程度、阅读理解、语言规范(标点符号的使用、语法正确性和拼写准确性)以及口语等方面考察学生的综合能力。让老师了解学生在本班的提高程度以及为下一学年接手该班英语教学的老师提供该班的学习情况是本次测试的目的。我们不会公布测试的细节,但家长可以从几周后派发的报告卡上了解到孩子们的整体情况。请放心,这些测试信息只是为教学提供参考信息,我们不会就测试情况再与学生或家长做进一步探讨。我们利用期末测试来诊断学生的学习情况,因此学生无需为测试做特别的复习或准备,他们只需保证充足的睡眠、吃一顿健康的早餐即可。感谢您的理解与支持。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

It seems that summer is here! Given the recent high temperatures please remind students to bring full water bottles to school and to wear school caps when they are outside. Help us to reinforce these important messages as shade and hydration are very important for our students’ health in the summer months.

Congratulations to all the students who took part in the Spring Concert last Friday. It was a spectacular demonstration of the skills and talents of more than 200 of our musicians, and indeed, their teachers. Thank you for your support for what was a truly memorable evening.

Many of our students will be attending and performing at a Foundation event this evening to celebrate the tremendous success of this year’s Annual Fund. It will be an opportunity for us to share with our members the projects that have been supported by the generous donation of parents and community members. We are mindful that this support has enabled us to undertake some tremendous projects which add value to the teaching and learning experiences of students and staff.

This weekend sees the opportunity for some rest and relaxation from the busy Sports programme. However, those involved in the cycling from the Changning Campus to the Songjiang Campus please note that the departure date and time are now on Saturday at 8.00 a.m. from the Primary Campus and not on Sunday as previously advertised. Good luck to all cyclists from the Run Away Club.

Today’s Sport’s Day for Year 4 and Year 5 at the Songjiang Campus went beautifully and everyone, including parents, appeared to enjoy it very much. Thanks to everyone who ensured that this new format was so successful. It provided a wonderful opportunity for primary and secondary colleagues and students to work together.

Enjoy the Dragon Boat Festival and we look forward to seeing the students back safely on Tuesday!

Character Education Writing Competition

Last week we launched our first annual Character Education Writing Competition to encourage students to reflect on the School’s core values of compassion, integrity, and balance.  This year’s theme is Compassion.  The deadline for submission is Monday, June 9th.  Please see the attached document for the full competition guidelines.

Character Education Writing Competition Guidelines_Students_Bilingual

We have already received a number of submissions and are so proud of the depth of our students’ ideas and writing.    Please encourage your child to participate!

Phone/SMS Fraud

In the past 2 weeks, we’ve heard voices from several parents that they got phone calls or SMS to ask them to deposit money for medical operations as their children got injured. Luckily we’ve given heads up to the community about this kind of fraud cases, so parents called the school for confirmation to avoid getting tricked. What we want to reiterate is that as the school procedure, only the school nurse or homeroom teacher will call parents promptly when related students have accidents during school hours. Please bear that in mind when you get a call from someone else claiming your child is injured; please contact your child’s homeroom teacher or the school nurse immediately for confirmation.

School Nurse’s Office: 61671999*8131/8132

In addition, the school will provide an emergency online service available during school hours, if you can’t get school nurses or the homeroom teachers through school lines.  Please try the emergency online at 18321335325

For any other main contact information, please refer to the Homework Diary, Page 62. We hope that you can find the right person for consultation with the most information you need.  Using the information published on the Homework Diary sensibly ensures a better and efficient communication between the school and yourself.

Announcement of Secondary Scholarships

We are pleased to announce that the following students have been selected by the Scholarship Committee to receive a Secondary School Scholarship:

Junior Secondary Boys Scholarship: John Zhao. James Chen

Huang Siu Ying Girls Scholarship: Athena Li, Sophia Wu

Chinese Immersion Scholarship: Corwin Pomeroy Liu McCormack

Congratulations to the scholarship recipients!

No Hat, No Play Starting from Next Week

As mentioned in the Parents Handbook, students in YKPS are encouraged to spend break and lunch times playing outside when the weather and air quality are good. To protect their skin against harmful UV radiation, children need to wear their YK Pao School cap during school hours. This cap SHOULD be named in both languages. If the students do not have a hat in summer they are not allowed to play outside – No hat, no play!

Message from the Library

Summer is just around the corner!

The research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to THREE months of reading progress! That’s why we encourage you and your little ones to keep the habit of reading during the long summer holiday.

Because of the closure of the Library during summer time, we will launch the Summer Borrowing Programme starting from June 16 to June 20.  We regret to announce that the Library will be closed from June 23rd on due to Library database transfer. EVERY student from Year 1 to Year 4 is welcome to borrow up to 10 books. However, to ensure the whole of our Library collections, we’d like to ask all Library items to be returned BEFORE the Summer Borrowing Programme starts, that is, June 13th.

All books for Summer Borrowing Programme should be returned immediately to the Library on the first day of school year, August 25, 2014. Any items that are not returned by then will be seen as overdue loans, and notice will be sent to collect payments.

To enrich the variety of reading materials, we are happy to announce that YK Pao School is TumbleBook-able! TumbleBook Library is an online eBook Library for primary-schoolers. You will find various picture books, chapter books, videos, graphic novels, and many more, that meet different reading needs. All you need to do is log on to: www.tumblebooklibrary.com Please contact our Library staff for the username and password.

Happy Reading!!

End-of-Semester Assessment Week

End-of-Semester Assessment Week is coming. Please check the attached arrangement for Assessment Week.

 Final-term assessment timetable

English End of Semester Assessment

This year, the end of semester assessments for English will take place across all year levels that involve a range of diagnostic tests.  Teachers will assess writing, reading fluency, reading comprehension, language conventions (punctuation, grammar and spelling) and speaking. The purposes of these assessments are to provide the teachers with information about the students’ progress in their classes and to inform next year’s teachers their incoming class’ strengths and areas of further development.  These details will not be publicly shared, though; the end of semester reports that will be sent home in the next few weeks will reflect these students’ development.  Please be assured that these diagnostic tests will be used for the sole purpose of informing teaching and learning and no part of the test will be discussed further with students or parents. As the end of semester tests are diagnostic, there is no need to prepare them or practice for these tests.  Just the usual healthy breakfast and a good night sleep the night before would be sufficient.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

Newsletter 23 May 2014

各位包校集体成员:

本周,我们成功地将五天的工作浓缩在四天里完成!能尽力保证学生在周二正常上学也是一个明智之举。此外,由于亚信峰会的召开,包校于本周三放假一天,我们也非常感谢大家对此安排的理解与支持。

感谢那些前来参加国际学校测试家长信息会的各位家长。我们很高兴能与您会面,并借此机会向大家介绍协调此次会议安排的小学部测试协调员Victoria老师。总体来说,我们对本次的测试结果很满意,通过此次测试,我们了解了学生的强项也对他们需要提高方面有了清晰的认识。

上周,我们以精彩纷呈的一至三年级体育日活动完美收官,而本周,约200名学生参与的春季音乐会也将在周五完成。学校里充满了美妙的乐声。我们感谢12支音乐小组和各合唱团为此付出的努力。我们也要感谢音乐组老师为学校带来了浓郁的音乐氛围,同时也给学生的生活增添了不少色彩。

我们还要祝贺与马西莫贝里尼歌剧院携手在上海国际之春音乐节闭幕式上表演的那些孩子们。与他们相处过的工作人员给予了他们极高的肯定,相信这次的经历也将让孩子们终身难忘。

欢迎您抽空欣赏在西楼5楼展出的艺术作品。(很明显,学校的舞龙占据了欣赏学生作品的最佳视野)

和往常一样,本周末孩子们又将是活动满满,祝各个体育队出战顺利。

一起电话欺诈事件引起了学校的关注,请阅读校长来信中有关“欺诈电话”的信息以避免此类事件发生在您的身上。

祝各位度过一个轻松愉快的周末。

欺诈电话

有个别家长已向学校报备他们接到了自称是其孩子老师的人的电话并要求他们转账以支付孩子在体育课上因意外事故或受伤而需要紧急手术的相关费用。但打电话的人在被询问更详细的情况时却露出了马脚,如被问到“你是谁?”、“你是哪个部门的老师?”等。请各位家长注意,根据学校政策规定,学生在上学期间受伤的话,班主任老师或校医会及时联系相关家长。如果您接到了其他人打来电话说孩子受伤,还请立即与班主任或校医联系确认以免上当受骗。

上海教委辟谣恐怖分子扬言目标为学生

以下信息节选自中国日报网站,供您知晓:

人民网北京5月23日电 (田雪)近日,网上流传着有关“教育局通知,东突恐怖分子已进入上海”的消息,引起众多网民的担忧。今日,上海市教委辟谣称,从未发过此消息,不要误信。

被广泛传播的消息称“教育局紧急通知:东突恐怖分子已进入上海,扬言目标为中小学生。教育局要求近期取消一切集会活动……”对此,上海教委在其官方微博表示:“据核查,本市教育系统从未发过此类通知,也未接到过此类报告。请广大网友不要误信、误传!”

此后,上海市公安局官方微博也转发教委微博内容称“不信谣,不传谣,谣言止于智者”。

开卷助人项目之休宁之行

上周末,一行20人的学生、家长和老师组成的探访团出发前往安徽省,探访小母牛在休宁县板桥乡徐源村和蓝田镇儒村的两个项目,了解我们的捐款如何帮助中国贫困地区的农户改善他们的生活状况。

探访团不但探访了受助农户家庭、入住农户家,更参与了在儒村举办的小母牛礼品传递仪式以及观看现场炒茶过程。今年再次来到徐源村,我们欣喜的发现村中新建了广场,房子,鱼塘和小桥。原来,在这一年中,村中的经济改善了,更多的农户有能力花钱建鱼塘,村民的脸上洋溢着笑容。

探访活动后,同学们感受良多,不约而同表示回到上海会更加珍惜自己所拥有的,并会更加努力地去帮助有需要的人!

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

家长们都觉得,在当今这样一个纷扰繁忙的世界里最困难的任务之一就是要抽出时间。好好花时间和孩子们相处会彻底改变他们的世界。我们往往为了给孩子一个美好的未来而努力打拼,却不能在他们学习与成长的过程中常伴其左右。然而这段关键时刻如果被错过的话,它也将是一去不复返的。本周的人文关怀角,我想给大家提几个好点子,希望能帮助您挤出多一点时间和家人共聚。详细内容请见附件。

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。

本次游泳比赛共有来自8所学校的300名学生参赛,包校一至九年级有近80名游泳运动员参加了这次周六的比赛。尽管我们的表现优异,我们也应当铭记以下几点:

  1. 一些参赛学校并没有自己的游泳池来进行训练,他们在比赛中也已竭尽全力拿出最好的表现。(五年前包校学生也经历过同样的境遇!)
  2. 比赛成绩是中小学部的学生们在团队体育时段和晨训时段坚持不懈努力训练的成果。我们的游泳选手们身上体现出了百折不挠的精神,他们都是好样的。同时,我们也要感谢在孩子身后默默支持的父母,毕竟能坚持每周两天早起送孩子来晨训也不是一件容易的事!周六,我们见证了很多个人最佳成绩的诞生,作为老师这让我们倍感自豪和满足,当然,这样的进步无疑也将大大提高孩子的自尊心、增强孩子们的自信心。
  3. 来自包校创办人和校长们百分百的支持与鼓励是孩子们的坚强后盾。没有坚持不懈地晨训和专业教练的投入,我们到达不了现在的水平。
  4. 游泳总教练Johnston和小学部游泳教练Johnny功不可没。

现在,让我们重新调整目标重新出发,努力赶超中国国际学校体育协会的其他成员学校。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have definitely managed to squeeze in five days work into four days this week! It was very good that we were able to run our Tuesday as a normal school day and thank you for your support and understanding regarding the closure on Wednesday for the Shanghai CICA Conference.

Thanks to those parents who attended the feedback meeting on the ISA Testing. It was good to meet with you and to introduce Victoria Adamovich, our new Assessment Coordinator, who helped coordinate the team. We have been pleased with our results overall and we have a clear focus on areas we need to develop and those in which we are strong.

Last week finished with an excellent Year 1-3 Sports Day, and this week will finish with our Spring Concert which features more than 200 of our young musicians. The school has been buzzing with performances! We appreciate the efforts of our 12 musical groups , choirs and ensembles greatly. Our thanks to the team of Music teachers who add such wonderful value to the lives of the students and the school.

Congratulations, too, to our students who performed in the Opera with Teatro Massimo Bellini to end the Shanghai International Music Festival. Our students were highly commended by all who worked with them, and they will definitely take away a memory for a lifetime.

Please do take the time to have a look at the Art Exhibition on the 5th floor of the West Building. (Our school dragon clearly has oversight of this wonderful display of student work!)

Every good wish to our sports teams this weekend; as ever, there is a full and busy programme.

A case of phone fraud has been brought to our attention today, please read the section called “Phone Fraud” bellow to find out more details of how to avoid this happening to you.

Have a restful and relaxing weekend.

Phone Fraud

We’ve been reported that several YKPS parents received phone calls from people who claimed to be their children’s teacher and requested them to transfer money to certain bank accounts for medical operations, as they claimed children had been in an accident or got injured during PE lessons. However, the swindler gave his show away when being asked for more details such as who he is, which department of YKPS he is in, etc. Please be advised that as the school procedure, only the school nurse or homeroom teacher will call parents promptly when related students have accidents during school hours. Please bear that in mind when you get a call from someone else claiming your child is injured; please contact your child’s homeroom teacher or the school nurse immediately for confirmation.

Shanghai Education Commission rumor “East Turkistan elements Ruhu threatened to attack the students.”

The message below was taken from the website of China Daily, just for your information:

People, Beijing, May 23 (by Tian Xue) recently circulated on the Internet about the ‘Bureau notification has entered the Shanghai East Turkistan terrorists’ message, causing concern of many users. Today, Shanghai Municipal Education Commission announced that it never sent this message. Do not mistakenly believe this.

A widespread message that says ‘urgent notice Bureau: East Turkistan terrorists have entered Shanghai, threatened to target schoolchildren’s education requires all gatherings… recently to be canceled.’ In this regard, Shanghai Education Commission in its official micro-blog said: ‘It is verified that the city education system has never had such a notice issued nor received any such reports. Please do not be misled into believing the majority of users misinformation! ‘

Since then, the Shanghai Public Security Bureau official micro-blogging content is also forwarded the BoE said: ‘Do not believe rumors, do not pass rumors, rumors must stop.’

Read to Feed Trip to Xiuning

Last weekend, a group of our students, parents and teachers set out for Anhui Province to visit project in Xuyuan Village and Ru Village in Xiuning County to see at firsthand how the money they raised will be spent in rural China.

We not only visited families and stayed in the famers’ house but also took part in passing on the gift ceremonies in Ru Village and watched the process of curing tea leaves. This is the second year we visit Xuyuan Village. When we got to the village we were happy to see the new village square, new houses, more fish ponds and bridges in the village. We found out that the village economy had improved and more villagers could now afford to build new fish ponds, and everyone was smiling much more.

After the visit the students said they felt inspired to treasure what they have and they promised to help more people in the future.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

One of the most difficult tasks that parents find in today’s busy world is just finding time. Time well spent with your child will make all the difference in the world. We are working hard to give our children the best future they can have, but missed time now while they are growing and learning can never be taken back once it’s missed. For this week’s Pastoral Care corner, I would like to offer some great ideas for finding a little more time to spend with the family. Please check the attachment for more details.

2014 YK Pao Art Exhibition

We invite you to the 2014 YK Pao Art Exhibition. Students in Year 1, 2 and 3 have been hard at work making art this year. We will be showcasing a selection of their creative efforts for our school community to enjoy from May 23rd to May 30th.  We will have over 300 pieces of art from our Primary campus with some guest pieces of work from our secondary campus.  Please come and enjoy the show on floors 1, 4, and 5 of the West Building.

End-of-Semester Assessment Week

End-of-Semester Assessment Week is coming. Please check the attached arrangement for Assessment Week.

Final-term assessment timetable 

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.

YKPS had nearly 80 competitors from Year 1 to Year 9 competing. There were 300 students in total from 8 schools. Although we look impressive at the top of the pile, there are several factors we need to remember:

  1. Some of these Schools do not have swimming pools, so they have made a massive effort to be present at all. (This was our situation some 5 years ago!)
  2.  It is the consistent, regular, hard work done in the Team Sports Practice and the Early Morning Team Trainings that has made the difference at Primary and Secondary Divisions. Well done to the swimmers firstly for the commitment and secondly well done to you the parents, as I know and understand an early wake up twice a week is not easy! I witnessed so many P. B’s. (Personal Bests) on Saturday, that it makes our jobs as teachers so fulfilling and of course it’s so good for the students’ self esteem.
  3. The Founders and Principals have supported, pushed and been 100% behind us at all times. The progress made so far could not have happened without time in the day to practice and the personnel brought in to coach.
  4. The dedication of Johnson (Head Swimming Coach) and Johnny (Primary Swimming Coach). They have made this happen.

Now let’s look to move on, realign our targets and look to get ahead of the rest of the CISSA Schools.

Newsletter 16 May 2014

各位包校集体成员:

我们度过了极为精彩的一周!紧接着上周五的民族舞晚会和周末的各项体育、音乐活动,这一周的活动更为密集!其中,中文舞台剧的表演是本周最吸引眼球的亮点。舞台剧“寻找声音的耳朵”的巨大成功让我们深刻体会到了大家万众一心、同心协力的力量。首场演出当晚,我们的创办人也到场支持孩子们。通过表演,他们感受到了这群充满活力和天赋的孩子们对舞台的热情。孩子们的表演非常出彩,他们也完全有能力胜任难度更大的角色。祝贺所有参与舞台剧的工作人员,特别要感谢金威老师和她的团队在整个策划、准备、排练及协调过程中的付出。“倾听”是整场演出向观众专递的一个重要信息,我也希望无论是学生、老师还是家长都能思考这个技能的重要性。

今天,四年级的学生出发去了朱家角。孩子们对于此次出行非常兴奋。同时,我们也祝另一群前往安徽休宁的学生、家长和老师借着此次安徽之行了解更多有关开卷助人项目的信息。

此外,我们也希望我们的小歌手们周末表演顺利。他们将与知名的意大利歌剧公司合作表演,为此他们刻苦练习意大利语歌词并熟记自己的肢体动作。对他们来说,这也将会是一次非常难忘的学习经历。

本周最终以一至三年级的体育活动日收尾,大家都玩得很开心!春天学院赢得了最终的胜利。感谢体育组老师为学生们组织这么有趣的活动。

下一周也将是繁忙的一周,孩子们正在积极准备春季音乐会的表演,我们期待下周五再次与您共享听觉盛宴。

请各位留意本信中稍后提到的国际学校测试结果的家长分享会信息。国际学校测试为我们学生就英语和数学能力与其他国际学校学生对比提供了重要的衡量指标。如果您有兴趣了解详情,我们欢迎您前来参加会议。

祝各位度过一个轻松愉快的周末。

中文舞台剧信息

《寻找声音的耳朵》终于完美落幕,历经几乎一个学期的策划和排练,最终我们的中文音乐剧完美收官了。

同学们,导演们,老师们,你们辛苦了。所有站在这个舞台上的同学,你们感受到了苦尽甘来吗?所有的辛苦换来那璀璨的一刻,只为圆你心中的一个舞台梦!我们为所有人感到骄傲。

我们包校的核心中文音乐剧团队为此付出了艰辛的努力,在此,我仅代表《寻找声音的耳朵》剧组向以下老师表示深深的感谢:Annie、Chloe、Laila、Jade、Molly、Aly、Nancy、Maureen、Victoria、Nita、Poppy和Tin老师。 同时,我们要对支持中文音乐剧的全体志愿者、后勤、IT、财务、前台和教学团队说声‘谢谢’。

中文音乐剧会后续推出DVD和照片集,我们会给每位参加的同学和老师送上一份留作纪念。所以还是要请家长们耐心等待哦!

请一定注意金老师的微信和邮件:lily.jin@ykpaoschool.cn  微信号:jinwei200

感谢

上周五我们成功的举办了民族舞晚会,相信大家都度过了一个愉快的、令人兴奋的晚上。

在此我们要特别感谢五年级Yvonne的妈妈,朱明基女士的帮忙。感谢她为我们编排了精彩的开场舞,这花费了她大量的时间和精力。同时,在集体舞的编排上,她也给予了Carol老师极大的支持。最后,也让我们感谢Carol和Jessica老师为大家带了趣味横生的集体舞。

来自家校协力会的信息

尊敬的家长,2013-2014年的最后一次家校协力会会议将于5月23日即下周五的14:00举行。作为2013-2014学年的工作总结以及开展2014-2015年家校协力会领导班底选举的会议,这次会议的意义非凡,此外,我们会探讨并可能通过修订版的家校协力会章程。 在过去半年里,我们向全体家校协力会成员征求了宪章修订的意见并在此基础上草拟了修订版宪章,我们已随信附上草稿供您参阅。我们强烈建议班代和其他有兴趣的家长来参加会议的这个环节。

下学期的校车服务

如果您的孩子2014-2015第一学期需要乘坐校车,请于5月20日前将校车申请表通过电子邮件形式发送至总务处老师,邮件地址:sandy.chen@ykpaoschool.cn

亚洲相互协作与信任措施会议第四次峰会将于本月21日在上海举行。家长们也可能已经知道21日当天上海市区学校将放假一天。为响应教育局号召,包校小学部也将放假一天。我们想要提醒大家的是,包校中学部5月21日仍是正常上学日。谢谢您的关注。

国际学校测试

三至五年级学生已于本学期初参加了国际学校测试。今年已是包校学生第四次参加此测试了。国际学校测试的报告将反应和描述学生所学的知识和掌握的技能。每一年的测试结果可做比对,利用此结果,可以在一段时间内跟踪学生及学校的水平。我们将于5月22日18:00-19:30在礼堂安排一场ISA说明会与三至五年级家长分享ISA测试结果。我们也欢迎一、二年级有兴趣的家长来参加此会。

来自教育局的通知

近期,教育局接到几起电话欺诈案件的汇报。一些其他学校的家长接到自称是其孩子老师的人的电话,要求家长转账以支付孩子因意外事故或受伤而需要紧急手术的相关费用。为避免此类欺诈案件发生在包校集体成员中,如果您接到类似电话,请及时先与班主任老师联系确认。此外,也请家长配合学校教育孩子不要将个人信息透露给陌生人。

来自音乐组的信息

包校春季音乐会

我们诚邀大家前来观看5月23日即下周五晚上18:30在包校小学部礼堂举行的年度春季音乐会。本次演出由我们的主要弦乐团和各合唱团领衔,同时,初级民乐团和新成立的管乐合奏团也将在音乐会上首次亮相。音乐会的门票是免费的并且主要预留给了表演者的家长。由于参演学生人数较为庞大而场地有限,我们将提供给每个参演学生的家庭最多两张门票。您可到前台领取门票。

请注意,我们会聘请专业人员对本次音乐会进行拍照和录影,因此演出现场我们要求大家不要自行拍照或摄像,因为这将影响其他观众观看演出。每位参演学生家庭将会获得一张免费的DVD(内含照片和录像)。

周六音乐项目

本周所有的周六课程照常进行,包括周六合唱团的排练。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had a tremendous week! Following on from the Folk Dance last Friday and a whole range of sporting and music activities last weekend, this week has been even busier! The performing arts have been a highlight. The Chinese production, ‘In Search of Sound’, has been a wonderful reminder of what can be achieved when the whole community pulls together and focuses attention on a shared goal. It was wonderful that our Founders were able to attend the event and to see how energetic, enthusiastic and capable our students are. Our students performed superbly and all were able to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Congratulations to all involved and especially to Lily Jin and her team who oversaw the whole process. The importance of ‘listening’ was a wonderful message and I would urge us all to consider how important this skill is, whether we are students, teachers or parents.

We waved off our Year 4 students on a trip to Zhujiajiao today. They were very excited about the trip. We also wish those students, parents and teachers who have gone to Anhui Xiuning to learn more about the Read To Feed programme.

We wish our young opera singers well this weekend, too. They will be performing with a professional Italian opera company and have worked extremely hard to learn their lines and actions. It has been an outstanding learning experience for them.

This afternoon finished with our Year 1-3 sports day. What fun! Thanks to the PE team who organized such a wonderful event. Congratulations to the winners, Summer House.

Next week promises to be busy, too. The Spring Concert is well underway and we look forward to seeing you next Friday.

Please also note the meeting for parents regarding our school assessments. We wish to share the schoolwide results of our ISA testing which enables us to benchmark our academic standards for English and Mathematics with other schools internationally. Do please come along if you are interested in finding out more.

Have a restful and relaxing weekend.

Message on Chinese Production

The curtain of In Search of the Sound has just come down today. After almost a whole semester of planning and rehearsing, our Chinese Production came to a perfect end.

A big round of applause to all the actors, teachers and the Director of the Production. To all the actors who were on the stage, did you feel the reward that the flashes and applauses have brought to you? It felt like all the hard work has paid off when standing on the stage with all attention from the audience, when your dreams came true.  We are so proud of you.

Thanks to the Production team for their great efforts, and on behalf of the team; I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Ms Annie, Chloe, Laila, Jade, Molly, Aly, Nancy, Maureen, Victoria, Nita, Poppy and Tin. Meanwhile, a big thank you to all the volunteers and staff from Logistic Department, IT Department, Finance, Reception and Teaching and Learning team.

We will also prepare the DVD and Photo album as gifts for all actors and teachers who supported the production. You can look forward to that!

Please check the information sent by Ms Lily via WeChat and Email closely. Her email address is: lily.jin@ykpaoschool.cn  Her WeChat account is: jinwei200

Thanks

The Folk Dance Evening last Friday was a big success and we believe that you all enjoyed a pleasant and exciting evening. We would like to extend special thanks to Ms. Zhu Mingji, Yvonne’s Mom from Y5. She spent a lot of time and efforts on choreography so that we had a splendid opening dancing.

Dear Parents, our final PTA meeting of 2013-2014 will be held next Friday, May 23rd at 2 PM.  This is an especially important meeting, as we will recap the 2013-2014 year, elect our 2014-2015 PTA leadership team, and discuss and hopefully adopt the revised PTA bylaws.  The draft bylaws have been prepared based on input solicited over the past six months from all PTA members and a draft is attached.  We strongly encourage as many Class Reps and other interested parents as possible to attend this session.

International Schools’ Assessment

Students in Years 3-5 took part in the International Schools’ Assessment at the beginning of this semester. It was the fourth time that our students have participated in this assessment. The ISA reports provide descriptive information about what students know and can do. The results are equated from year to year so they can be used to track changes over time at individual and school level. We will have a meeting to share the feedback with Years 3-5 parents at 18:00-19:30 in the Auditorium on May 22nd.  Year 1 and Year 2 parents please feel free to come if interested.

Notice from the Education Bureau

Recently, the Education Bureau reported that several parents from different schools received phone calls from people who claimed to be their children’s teacher and requested the parents to transfer money to certain bank accounts for medical operations, as they claimed children had been in an accident or got injured. To avoid deception cases like, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher if you receive phone calls asking for money. Meanwhile, please work together with the school to train our students to take care and not to share personal information to strangers.
