九月份通訊 / September Newsletter
今年的中秋節是9月15日，我們吃月餅，賞明月，也重溫嫦娥奔月，吳剛伐桂及朱元章起義抗元的美麗故事，月圓人團圓，祝 大家 佳節愉快！
提醒家長: 要查閱您孩子的每週家庭作業，輔導完成, 並在聯絡單上簽名，於下次上課時交給老師;
M2以上班級, 每冊課本將用二年，第一年只教授第1~5課。暑假後，第二年開學，先行復習，再繼續完成第6~10課。教學進度減緩，除能深入課文外，相關的補充教材，如: 實用口語、漢字書寫、文法、造句、生字、生詞的復習，亦可同時顧及。此項更改的目的，是為學生奠定紮實的中文基礎，增加聽、說、讀、寫的練習和鞏固中文的水平。鑒於每冊課本將用兩年，請提醒學生好好保持課本的能用度。
請檢閱下列附件, 如有遺漏, 速與學校辦公室聯絡補齊:
上列3, 4, 5, 6, 7項填妥後, 請於: 課後班9月15日, 週六班9月17日前交回中文學校, 謝謝合作!
Today is our School's first day of instruction. After another summer, all the students have grown taller and more mature, and I hope that their Chinese education also improves as they continue their path in life.
In the Chinese culture, there are three major festive holidays: Lunar New Year, Dragon Boat Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival. This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival is on September 15th, and we celebrate by eating delicious moon cakes, watching the moon and listening to popular tales of Chang-E going to the moon and other beloved stories. It is a time for family reunion and I wish everyone a happy Mid-Autumn Festival.
Following, September 28th is the anniversary of China's greatest teacher, Confucius, and we celebrate all of our teachers on this day. Through patience, kindness and many varieties of materials to review and teach our students Chinese, it is my sincere wish that they will continue to understand the importance of the language and use it to their advantage in the future. I hope the students can see our teachers' determination. Thank you, teachers.
Please check the weekly homework assignment with your children, assist them if possible, sign the Parent/Teacher Communication Sheet and return it to the teacher the following week. We always believe that parents are the primary educators of our children; please help them to develop a good habit of handing in homework on time.
For Classes M2 and above, each volume of the textbook will be used for 2 school years(Lesson 1~Lesson 5 for the first school year and then Lesson 6 ~ Lesson 10 for next school year). Using one textbook for two school years enables the students to learn in more detail in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Through the teaching of practical oral conversation, Chinese characters writing, commonly used vocabulary and phrases, sentence making, frequent review of previous material, students will fare much better in their Chinese studies. Parents, please remind your child to take good care of the textbook package as it will be used for two school years.
