From the Principal: E-Learning Week 12

校長的信息 - 電子學習第十二週

Dear Parents,

It has been an exciting week for me, as I visited over 30 elementary students to present their Principal Honor Roll and Character Awards. I was blessed to see the excited faces as we celebrated their achievements. I was also delighted to see some of your faces during our year-end online Chapel! 

This year we have ventured into many ‘firsts’ in our school history. Here is another “first”  to end the school year - the way you are receiving report cards.

Preschool parents: teachers are arranging either pick-up or delivery of your child’s report card, portfolios, and personal belongings left at the school.

Elementary parents: teachers are sending report cards via email. Upon receipt of your child(ren)’s report card(s), please sign and scan it back to your teacher. If you do not have the capability to sign and return it electronically, you can stop by the office next week to do so. 

I am happy to announce that this will be the LAST e-Learning email from me until the Fall.

Here are a few items to note: 

1. School Summer Office Hours: Mondays & Thursdays 9 AM - 4 PM.

2. Summer Packets - Please schedule a regular time each week for your child to complete it, to help keep his/her mind sharp over the Summer.

3. Don’t forget to sign up for the one-on-one Summer e-Tutoring Program.  A registration form is attached to this email, but you can also fill out a Google form HERE

4. The Jr.K & Kindergarten Graduation is tomorrow, June 13 at 10 AM!

My congratulations to the 8th grade, Jr.K, and Kindergarten graduates! My gratitude to the faculty, staff, and parents for strong partnership and commitment! Glory be to God who enables us to finish this school well!  I do wish you a wonderful summer with your family. Have fun outdoors and stay active! Keep in contact with us and introduce your friends to our school through our website and the PTCS Facebook page

In His Grace,

Bonnie Ho

親愛的培德家長,平安!

對我而言,這是激動人心的一週。我對 30 多名小學部的學生進行了家訪,為他們頒發了校長榮譽榜和品德獎的證書。當我我們禮讚他們成就的時候,看到他們興奮的臉龐時,我感到很欣慰。我也十分高興,能在本學年最後一次的在線崇拜中,看到你們中的一些面孔。

 

今年,我們在學校的歷史上寫入了許多的 “第一次”。以下是本學年的另一個 “第一次”,那是有關家長如何接收成績單的方式。

 

學前部家長:學前部老師正在安排您前來學校領取,又或者他們親自把您孩的成績單、作品集、個人物品和暑假功課送到府上。

 

小學部家長:老師會通過電子郵件發送成績單。在收到您孩子的成績單後,請簽字並掃描後交還給老師。如果您無法以電子方式簽名並郵寄,您可以在下週到校務處進行簽字確認。

 

此外,我很高興告訴您,這是我在本學年發出的最後一封電子學習的通訊

 

請注意閱讀以下事項: 

1. 學校暑期校務處開放時間:週一和週四上午9 點至下午4 點。

2. 暑假學習資料包 -- 請您每週為孩子安排一個固定的時間來完成它,以幫助他們在暑假期間保持敏銳的頭腦。

3. 不要忘記報名參加 暑期一對一電子補習。註冊表格附在這封郵件中。您也可以點擊此處,填寫在線表格進行報名。

4. 學前四歲班和幼稚園的畢業典禮 將於明天(6月13日)上午10 點舉行。

 

我祝賀所有八年級、學前四歲班以及幼稚園的畢業生!感謝全體教職同工和家長們的大力配合與投入!榮耀歸於使我們能夠順利完成學業的神。祝愿您和家人度過一個愉快的暑假。同時,請與我們保持聯繫,並通過學校的 網站Facebook主頁 向您的朋友介紹我們的學校。謝謝!

Dear Parents,

This has been a distressing week, to say the least. We have been inundated with news and images about racial inequality, rioting, and looting, on top of the pandemic. 

Experts are advising parents to limit watching the news with their young children, and to engage children in conversations and activities that help them feel safe and connected. I encourage you to have technology-free dinners together and to pray together as a family. 

A COVID Task Force (CTF) has been established with two distinct missions: 1) to develop a contingency plan in case the school is not able to operate on campus in the fall; and 2) to equip the school to re-open on campus at any time. 

The CTF members are as follows: 

  1. Fiona Cross (Title)

  2. Vincci Chan (Preschool)

  3. Carmen Bonner (Preschool)

  4. Jamie Mai (Preschool parents)

  5. Donna Yuan (preschool parent) pending

  6. Bethany LeLaurin (Elementary)

  7. Meagan Lundgren (Elementary)

  8. Mary Yoon (Elementary parent)

  9. Ruth Titus (Medical personnel)

  10. Bonnie Ho (Admin)

  11. Fabian Ocampo (Admin)

  12. Lynn Chan (Admin)

Here are a few items to note: 

1. Second Notice: THE SCHOOL OFFICE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the recent threats to different communities. I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, but we must keep our staff and parents’ safety in mind.

2. Don’t forget to sign up for the one-on-one Summer e-Tutoring Program.  A registration form is attached to this email, but you can also fill out a Google form HERE.

3. Principal’s Honor Roll Breakfast will be celebrated via Zoom on Thursday, June 11 at 8 am. 

4. The 8th Grade Commencement is on Friday, June 12 at 3 PM. The Pre-K & Kindergarten Graduation is on Saturday, June 13 at 10 AM.  Join us in celebrating our graduates’ achievements by clicking on this Facebook Live link on Friday and Saturday!​

親愛的培德家長,平安!

過去的一週,真的是一波未平,一波又起。疫情還未平息,我們又被淹沒在各種關於種族問題、暴亂、劫掠等新聞和影像中。

專家建議家中有幼童的家長有限制的觀看新聞,並主動和孩子溝通交流,一起做活動,以幫助孩子建立安全感。我鼓勵您和家人享用「無網絡」晚餐,並一同禱告。 

新冠專責小組現已建立,小組共有兩項任務:第一,制定應急計劃,以防學校在秋季無法在校園內運作,第二,為學校隨時恢復開學做好籌備工作。

專責小組成員有:

  1. Fiona Cross (Title I 老師)

  2. Vincci Chan (學前部老師)

  3. Carmen Bonner (學前部老師)

  4. Jamie Mai (學前部家長)

  5. Bethany LeLaurin (小學部老師)

  6. Meagan Lundgren (小學部老師)

  7. Mary Yoon (小學部家長)

  8. Ruth Titus (醫務人員)

  9. Bonnie Ho (行政人員)

  10. Fabian Ocampo (行政人員)

  11. Lynn Chan (行政人員)

 

請注意閱讀以下事項: 

1. 第二次通知:由於這些日子各社區的安全隱患,學校辦公室現已關閉,重新開放的時間有待通知。因為我們必須要考慮教職人員和家長的人身安全,若因此為您帶來任何不便,我深表歉意,。 

2. 請不要忘記報名註冊一對一的暑期線上補習輔導項目。報名表請查看附件,您也可以點擊此處填寫註冊表格。

3. 校長的榮譽早餐將於6月11日早8點在Zoom上舉行。

4. 八年級畢業典禮 將在6月12日下午3時舉行。學前部畢業典禮 將在6月13日上午10時舉行。歡迎您和我們一同慶祝畢業生的成就,您可以在週五和週六點擊 Facebook實況 在 線觀看哦!

校長的信息 - 電子學習第十週

Dear Parents,

We are almost at the finish line! We can all breathe a sigh of relief at completing this challenging school year in two weeks!

 

As soon as school is done, our newly formed COVID Task Force, made up of faculty and parents from Elementary and Preschool, will roll up our sleeves and work on a contingency plan for e-Learning in the Fall. We are excited to refine and enrich the Elementary program, and are anticipating a brand new Preschool e-Learning program! In addition, the COVID Task Force will work on equipping the school for reopening as soon as Illinois enters Phase 5. The safety of our families is our priority, therefore we will follow closely the policies presented by government agencies.

Here are a few items to note: 

1. Our Virtual Poetry Slam was a success! Thank you to the teachers who encouraged good writing from our students, to all our presenters for their hard work, and to Mrs. Osgood, the coordinator, and MC! We had some particularly thoughtful poems related to the quarantine and fun poems about food, siblings, and Summer! 

2. PTCS is offering a Summer Tutoring Program. We have wonderful teachers committed to keeping our students academically fit over the summer.  I encourage you to sign up for your children today! A registration form is attached to this email.

3. Principal’s Honor Roll Breakfast will be celebrated via Zoom on Thursday, June 11 at 8 am. I will be delivering goodie bags and certificates to those who received straight-As or Character Awards for 3rd & 4th quarters. Stay tuned for more details!

4. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will provide healthy meals and snacks to children and teens aged 18 and younger at hundreds of sites across Illinois this summer. Families can find their nearest summer meals site by calling (800) 359-2163, texting “FoodIL" to 877-877, or visiting summermealsillinois.org

From the Principal: E-Learning Week 9

校長的信息 - 電子學習第九週

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that there are only three weeks of school left. I am proud of the perseverance everyone has demonstrated through these trying times!

As the weeks and days wind down the faculty and I feel that it would be prudent to produce a contingency plan for the Fall in case schools are not allowed to re-open on campus. We are confident that there will be no learning lost for the Elementary, as has been demonstrated in the 3rd  & 4th Quarters this year. The Preschool e-Learning program will go through an overhaul, with the experiences accumulated from the last few months and the great suggestions and feedback collected from parents. The preschool team and I are confident that we can reinvent the wheel and create an effective e-Learning program for our 3-4-year-olds, if the situation calls for it. 

A Task Force will be established by the end of May to develop a contingency plan in case schools are not allowed to re-open in September, and to work on equipping the school for re-opening at any time. More details will be communicated in weeks to come.

Here are a few items to note: 

1. There is no school this Monday, May 25, for Memorial Day. The office will be closed, so the homework pickup will be on Tuesday, the 26th.

2. Poetry Slam is next Friday, May 29th, at 9:00 am. All parents are welcome to attend using Zoom:

3. So far only 50.1% of Chinatown residents and 40% in Bridgeport have participated in the 2020 Census. If you have not yet done so, please send yours in! See attached postcards for reference.

親愛的培德家長,平安!

時光飛逝,很難相信,本學年只剩下三週的時間了。我為大家在這段困難時期堅持不懈的努力而感到驕傲!

隨著時間的流逝,我和同工們都認為,學校應該為秋季學期制定一個應急的教學計劃,以防校園不能在秋季重新開放。小學部的教學不會有任何問題,正如今年第三、四學期所顯示的情況一樣。對此,我們充滿信心。學前部的電子教學課程將進行一次較大的調整。有了過去幾個月的經驗積累,以及家長們寶貴的建議和反饋,我和學前班的教師團隊有信心,在條件允許的情況下,學校將重新打造一個更有效的學前班電子教學課程。

本校將於五月底成立一個專責小組,以製訂有可能需要的應變計劃,以防學校在九月不能按時複課;本小組也同時致力為學校提供設備的支持,以裝備學校重新開學。有關更多的細節,我們將在未來幾週向您匯報。

請閱讀如下注意事項,

1. 本週一(5月25日,即國殤紀念日)放假一天。校務處將關閉。請於5月26日(週二)領取學生作業。

2. 詩詞大賽的時間是5月29日(下週五)上午9 點。歡迎所有家長參加。

我們將使用Zoom, 屆時請點擊 此鏈接  https://zoom.us/j/94352538761?pwd=dnRiMThoaTlQNVdXVlZiTUZvMjExUT09 ID: 943 5253 8761 密碼: 038468

3. 到目前為止,只有 50.1% 的中國城居民和40%的橋港區居民參加了2020 年的人口普查。如果您還沒有參加,請盡快填寫調查。請參閱所附信件。

From the Principal: E-Learning Week 8

校長的信息 - 電子學習第八週

Dear Parents,

 

For over 25 years, JSP Jumpstart has served thousands of children in the greater Chinatown community. We had recruited a great group of teachers and assistants who were looking forward to a fun-filled and academically enriching summer with your child. 

 

During the past month with Illinois’ stay-at-home order in place, we have been exploring how JSP Jumpstart could continue. This week, Gov. Pritzker stated that the peak won’t be reached until mid-June. It would be impossible for us to provide a safe in-person program. We also considered a remote academic program as Pui Tak Christian School has developed an effective e-learning structure. While possible, we determined that training new teachers would be too challenging for a short program. Thus, we came to the sad decision not to offer JSP Jumpstart this summer. For more details, please see the attachment.

Here are a few items to note: 

1. The deadline for Elementary Re-enrollment is today. Please re-enroll now, so that we can prepare for next year. Click here for the Elementary form

2. CCUC has donated disposable masks to the school, enough for each student to receive three pieces. Please pick them up at the office Mondays & Thursdays from 9:30a-3:30p. The masks for JrK and Kindergarten are enclosed in the graduation packets.

3. For detailed announcements on school events, e-Tutoring summer program, COVID-19 Tuition Assistance, please visit: https://www.puitakschool.org/announcements

 

May God bless you and give you peace!

親愛的父母和監護人,

 

過去25年,暑假啟航班(JSP)在華埠社區教育栽培了成千以上的學員。 今年我們也一如既往招募了一群出色的老師及助教,並期待著與您的子女一起渡過一個有趣及學識充實的暑假。

 

但過去一個多月,伊利諾州實施了「居家令」,我們一直在探討如何開展JSP暑假啟航班。州長比斯卡(Pritzker)本週內指出,估計到六月中旬疫情才到達高峰。因此,我們不太可能提供一個絶對安全的場地來進行啟骯班。由於培德基督教學校已建立了一套有效的網上學習法,所以我們也曾考慮過網上學習課程。雖然有這個選擇,但也難以在短時間內培訓校外老師,開展網絡教學。因此,我們作出了一個極不情願的決定,就是今年夏天不會開辦JSP暑假啟航班。有關更多細節,請參閱所附信件

 

請閱讀如下注意事項,

1. 今天就是小學部新學年註冊的截止日期,請現在就註冊,以確保我們為下一學年度做好籌備工作。點此鏈接 填寫小學部申請表。

2. 芝加哥華人基督教聯合會向學校捐贈了一次性口罩,每個學生可以領取3個。請您在週一或週四上午9 點半至下午3 點半到校務處領取。四歲班和幼稚園學生的口罩已放在了畢業包裹中。

From the Principal: E-Learning Week 3

校長的信息 - 電子學習第三週

Dear Parents,

 

Thank you for partnering with our teachers; your participation has proven vital to your child’s learning away from school. Together, we have completed Week 3 of e-Learning! 

 

Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot have extended the order to stay-at-home through the end of the month. With these considerations, PTCS has decided to extend our e-Learning until April 30th. We pray that this measure will indeed aid in the fight against COVID-19 so that we can resume school on campus as soon as possible. 

 

We implemented e-Learning to ensure uninterrupted education to all of our students during school closure. With the commitment, dedication and immense amount of work from the PTCS team, we have achieved our goals in delivering quality education through the e-Learning platform. Though the school hour for the preschoolers is shorter, the faculty has provided stability and a sense of security to the young learners, which is priceless.   

 

It is estimated 25% of PTCS families are impacted financially by COVID-19. My heart goes out to those of you who are struggling. To this end, we are launching Child Champion: Campaign to Raise Scholarships for students who are not able to pay the remaining tuition in full. We at PTCS are committed to making sure none of our students is left behind.  It is in a time such as this, we have to look after our neighbors, and have each other’s back. 

 

If God has blessed your family financially, please send in your full, monthly tuition payment so that we can continue to provide education without disruption. If, however, you have experienced job loss due to this global crisis and find it difficult to pay rent and provide food for your family, much less pay for your child’s tuition, please do not hesitate to contact me or the admin staff for financial assistance.

 

Here are a few items to note:

1. Easter Break begins this Monday, April 6 through Monday, April 13, E-learning resumes on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

2. CPS meal sites for students during Easter Break will be limited. For those in Chinatown, the closest location will be Healy Elementary at 3010 S Parnell Ave. They will be open Monday, April 6 – April 10 from 9 am-1 pm. To find the closest meal site, plug in your you address on https://schoolinfo.cps.edu/mealdistributionsites/index.html?timePeriod=spring

3. JSP Jumpstart - the new deadline for our summer program’s early-bird registration is May 15, 2020. In the event that JSP Jumpstart is cancelled due to COVID-19, payment will be refunded.

4. School activities are postponed – IOWA Standard Test, Read-A-Thon and Poetry Slam

5. To visit our virtual Science Fair, please click here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XpgWGQYZaYPxT2exVFYHixYnwJu1Q2zm 

6. Attached to this email are fun things you can do with your children over the break:

a. Info on the Easter Story

b. Resource list for different activities

c. Picture books in English and Chinese on why kids cannot go to school

 

May you find peace during this quiet Easter. I encourage you to join in with your local church online. Chinese Christian Union Church, with whom we share our school facilities, will have live streams of service on Sunday, April 12 at 10 AM. They will also have a Good Friday service on April 10 at 7:30 PM. Please click the following links at those times.

I wish you a restful break, full of peace, and I look forward to seeing your child for Week 4 of e-Learning on Tuesday, April 14. 

 

In His Grace,

Principal

親愛的父母和監護人,

 

感謝您和我們的老師一同合作,您的通力合作是孩子在家上網課的重要一環。在我們共同的努力下,第三週的電子學習圓滿成功!

 

州長Pritzker和市長Lighfoot已經將居家令延續至本月底。經過慎重的考慮,培德學校也決定將電子學習延長至4月30日。我們祈禱現階段的措施可以有效的抑制新冠病毒的傳播,讓我們盡快重返校園。

 

在學校關閉期間,為了確保學生的繼續學習,我們引入了電子學習。在培德團隊不斷的堅持努力下,我們通過線上平台達成了提供高質量教育的目標。儘管學前部的學生在校時間會短一些,但學校的教職員工還是盡職盡責的為小學者們營造了一個他們熟悉的學習氣氛,學生們仍然每天可以見到老師和同學,這是無價的。

 

預計有25%的培德家庭遭受了新冠帶來的經濟危機,讓我覺得很難過。請為孩子打氣 -- 發起為無法支付剩餘學費的學生籌集助學金的運動。在培德學校,一個孩子都不可以少。在這樣的時刻, 我們必須照顧我們的鄰居, 並互相支援。

 

若上帝在經濟上祝福了您,請繳納本月的全額學費,這可以幫助我們繼續為孩子們提供完整的教育。但是若您因為此次全球性危機而丟失了工作,無法支付房租或買食物的話,請您隨時聯繫我或校務處的員工,來了解助學金的詳情。

 

下面是幾項需要注意的事情:

 

1. 復活節假期將從4月6日(星期一)開始至4月13日(星期一)結束。電子學習將於2020年4月14日星期二恢復。

2. 復活節假期期間,學生在公立學校領取免費餐食的地點將受到限制。離中國城最近的地點是位於S Parnell Ave 3010的Healy Elementary。他們將於4月6日至4月9日上午9點至下午1點開放。搜索最近的用餐地點,請打開以下鏈接,輸入您的地址 

https://schoolinfo.cps.edu/mealdistributionsites/index.html?timePeriod=spring

3. 「暑期啟航班」- 早鳥新註冊的截止日期改為2020年5月15日。 如果啟航班因新冠病毒被取消。付款將會退還。

4. 學校活動被推遲 - IOWA 標準試,閱讀馬拉松和詩歌會。

5. 請瀏覽培德學生的科學展示,請單擊此處:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XpgWGQYZaYPxT2exVFYHixYnwJu1Q2zm

6. 在假期中,您可以和孩子一起做以下有趣的事情:

a. 重溫附上的復活節故事

b. 在附上的清單中選擇有趣的活動

c. 附上的圖書可以幫助您的孩子了解為什麼他們暫時不能上學

d. 查看何校長在線上的工作坊使用中文講解如何停課不停學,請單擊此處:

https://www.puitak.org/webinar-resources

 

願您在這個安靜的復活節裡找到平安。我鼓勵您參加當地教會的線上聚會。學校所在的華人基督教聯合會將在週日(4月12日)在線上實時直播聚會。他們也將在4月10日(週五)的受難日晚7點30分有崇拜。請在上述時間點擊下面的鏈接。

From the Principal: E-Learning Week 2

校長的信息 - 電子學習第二週

Dear Families,

Thank you for your partnership as we complete Week 2 of e-Learning. The PTCS team started it off with group devotions that helped set the tone for the week. I am grateful for the technology that provides a way to touch base with our staff while we all work remotely.

 

This is a short teaching week as we end it with Teacher Institute Day and Parent-Teacher Conferences. I believe we have settled into the e-learning platform and are getting a hang of Google Hangouts. Attendance has reached 96% despite reports of sickness, no internet and power outages. I am pleased with the amount of teaching and learning found in all the classes.

 

It has been a great joy for me, as the principal, to visit classes. A PK-3 student attentively following along with the teacher in front of the monitor, said to his younger brother sitting next to him, “Stand up, you have to stand up to do this!” Now that's what I call total engagement! It has also been important to our children’s mental health to see and greet each other and their teachers as they would typically do in their physical classroom. 

 

Here are a few items to note:

 

1. One of our parents gave us a great suggestion on how to submit tuition payments besides mailing it in. PTCS has a mail slot at the double-red doors where we dismiss our Jr.K classes. These are the doors to the left of our main door. If it is more convenient for you, you may drop your tuition in that mail slot.

 

2. Thursday, March 26, is Teacher Institute Day. All of our teachers will be busy grading and organizing assessment data for their classes. We will not send home report cards this quarter as some assessments must be completed on-site and in-person. 

 

3. Friday, March 27, is the Parent-Teacher e-Conference. We have a very tight schedule that includes translation for a number of our families. The teacher will report to you the growth and progress of your child. Please be on time for your conference, and be ready with questions if you have any. If you are having difficulty with Google Hangouts, please let us know before your meeting time. 

 

4. The Elementary Science Fair is moving right along! By now, students should have submitted their video presentations. Our judges will review all of the student presentations; lookout for the announcement of the winners!  A link for you to virtually attend our Science Fair will be provided next week. 

5. Jr.K and Elementary re-enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year starts Thursday, March 26th. Please see the attached fillable re-enrollment form. To submit, please print and mail completed form, along with $200 Tuition Deposit to Pui Tak Christian School, 2301 S Wentworth Ave., Chicago, IL 60616, or drop it in the red doors mail slot. The deadline for re-enrollment is April 24, 2020.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or your child’s teacher. Remember, we are stronger together!

 

With hope in Christ,

Bonnie Ho

Principal

親愛的家長和監護人,

 

在電子學習第二週即將結束之際,感謝您一如既往的支持與配合。週一早上,我們的團隊通過線上集體的靈修禱告,為本週制定了侍奉的方向。在遠程工作的期間,科技保障了同工們之間的聯絡,對此,我十分感恩。

 

由於本週四、週五的教師研修日和家長會,這個教學週比較短。相信您已經習慣了Google Hangouts 的使用方式。在本週中,學生的出勤率高達96%,我對所有課程中教導的質和量都非常滿意。

 

作為校長,能進到課堂觀察學生的學習,是我的一大樂事。一名三歲的學生正專心地跟隨著屏幕上老師的指導做各樣的動作。忽然,他對坐在旁邊的弟弟說:“站起來,這個你必須要站起來做!” 這就是我所說的完全的投入!此外,學生們可以與彼此,與老師們見面,相互問候,就像平日在教室中一樣,這對他們的心理健康是十分重要的。

 

以下是一些注意事項:

 

1. 除了把學費郵寄到本校之外,一位家長給了我們一個提交學費的好主意。在學前班放學的兩扇紅門處,也就是學校正門的左側,有一個郵件槽。如果這對您來說更方便的話,您可以將學費投入該郵件槽中。

 

2. 3月26日(星期四)是教師進修日。所有老師將忙於課程的評分,並整理評估數據。由於一些評估必須跟學生面對面進行,本期的成績單會延後發放。

 

3. 3月27日(星期五)是家長會。我們的時間表很緊湊。老師將向您報告孩子的成長和與學業上的進度。請您準時參加會議。如有任何疑問,請提前準備好。如果您對使用Google Hangouts 還有問題,請在會議之前告知我們。

 

4. 小學部的科學博覽會已經在進行當中!截至今天,學生應該已經提交了他們的視頻展示。我們的評委將觀看所有學生的展示報告。請注意有關比賽的結果!我們將於下週為您提供在線參與科學博覽會的鏈接。

 

5. 四歲半和小學部 2020-2021 新學期的註冊將於3月26日(星期四)開始。請參閱附件,下載可填寫的註冊表格。完成後,請把填妥並打印好的表格連同 200 美元的學位押金郵寄至培德基督教學校(Pui Tak Christian School), 2301 S Wentworth Ave., Chicago, IL 60616,或將其投入紅門上的郵件槽中。重新註冊的截止日期是2020年4月24日。

 

如有任何疑問,請隨時與我或您孩子的老師聯繫。團結就是力量!

永沐主恩,

 

何述珍

From the Principal: E-Learning Week 1

校長的信息 - 電子學習第一週

Dear Families,

Thank you so much for your partnership this week. There was great learning among students, teachers and parents alike! Teachers have worked tirelessly to continue providing lessons for students. Please take the time to thank them.

 

Many of you have questions, which I will answer:

 

1. As the governor has issued a “shelter-in-place” order until April 7, all faculty and administrative staff will operate remotely from home. As a result, we will not be in the office to receive your monthly tuition payments. Until school is back in session, please mail your monthly tuition payments to the school at 2301 S. Wentworth Ave., Chicago, IL 60616.  We will pick up mail once a week.

 

2. There will be no e-school next week on Thursday and Friday, March 26-27, for Teacher Institute Day and Parent-Teacher Conferences. All conferences will be done remotely with your child/ren’s teacher and through Hangouts Meet. Please check your email and accept your teacher’s invitation to the meeting. 

 

3. IOWA Testing will take place on April 20-24, as scheduled, granted that we are able to return to school on April 14th. 

 

4. All other school calendar events will continue as planned, and upcoming events, like the Science Fair, will be done electronically.

 

5. CPS meals for students will continue, available for pickup outside public school main doors Mondays-Fridays from 9 am-1 pm. They provide a break for families at least for one meal a day.

  

Students, I think by now you are getting used to the e-classroom. It has been fun to be able to hop in your class from time-to-time and see how well you are learning. Please make sure you continue to come to class on time every day. Keep up the good work! 

 

While most of our time is spent indoors, I encourage families to take a walk together or play catch, to get some fresh air and sunshine. This will do wonders to lift up your mood and even help in strengthening your immunity with a healthy influx of oxygen. You can also spend quality time with your family by playing games or cooking together, things that we normally would not have time to do with our busy schedules!

 

In His Grace,

Bonnie Ho

Principal

親愛的家長和監護人,

 

感謝您在這一週的配合。在過去的幾天裡,不論是學生、家長還是老師都不同程度的學到了很多東西!我們的老師孜孜不倦的為同學們提供學習的素材,我們要好好的感謝他們。

 

我收到了一些問題,在此一一作答。

 

1. 州長已經作出了「就地避難」的命令,此項規定將一直持續至4月7日,所有的教職和行政同工都將在家中辦公,以維持學校的運營。因此,我們無法在辦公室收取您每月繳納的學費。在學校恢復正常運營前,此期間煩請郵寄您的學費至 2301 S. Wentworth Ave., Chicago, IL 60616。我們會每週收取一次。

2. 下週四、五兩天(3月26、27日)為老師教研日及家長會,學校不會安排線上學習。所有的會議將在線上通過 Hangouts Meet 舉行。請查詢您的電子郵件,並接受老師的會議邀請。

 

3. 若學校正常於4月14日復課,那麼 IOWA 標準化測試將按原計劃在4月20-24日進行。

 

4. 所有的學校活動仍將按照原定日期在線上舉行,例如科學展覽會。

 

5. 芝加哥公立學校會繼續為學生提供免費午餐,您可以在公立學校正門口領取,領取時間為週一至週五早9 時至下午1時。這期間您至少可以每日少準備一頓飯。

同學們,我想您現在已經習慣了電子教室了。我能夠不時進入您的課堂,看看你們的學習進展,是我的一大樂事。請確保您每天繼續按時上課,再接再厲!

 

儘管我們大部分的時間都會在室內,我鼓勵您和家人一起外出散步,或者玩一些接球的遊戲,呼吸一下新鮮空氣,享受陽光。這些都會讓我們放鬆心情,甚至會幫助您汲取健康的氧氣,從而提高您的免疫力。與此同時,您可以陪孩子玩遊戲、一起做飯,享受諸如此類的高質量的親子時間,還可以做更多在平時忙碌生活中無法去做的事情!

永沐主恩,
