ASAs/Clubs – odds and ends

Apologies for the late notice of thanks! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we got the after school program running. Still a few things to tweak but it’s going well.

Cycle 1 ends on Oct 26th and Cycle 2 only begins on Nov 5th. If you would like to offer an activity in Cycle 2 but didn’t get a chance to inform me, you can email me and I’ll make it happen.

If you run an ASAs for the PS children AND you are away on Discover China, please inform the parents that you will be away and that the ASA will be cancelled. 

If you are absent on a day you run an activity (for whatever reason, PD, sick etc), you have 2 choices: 1) ask a kind colleague to cover for you. 2) cancel the ASA/club by emailing the parents and cc’ing me.

Please be mindful of the finishing time. Let’s make sure the bus students get on the bus! On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays, the bus leaves at 4.30 pm and on Tuesday it leaves at 4:00 pm.

Thanks for you support.

Book Drive – CAS project

For my CAS project I am organising a Book Drive. We accepts books in any language. 

When: October 15 – November 3

Where: Leave your books in a Box that says “book donation’ in Center Foyer

Do you have any books that you’ve finished reading and have no idea what to do with them? Don’t throw it away or keep it on a shelf to collect dust, donate it to the the Qingdaolu Community Center! They will use the books to educate the people on different cultures, so it doesn’t matter if the books are not in English. Not looking for magazines or graphic novels, those you can keep yourself. To donate, simply find the plain brown box sitting in the Center Foyer at the front of the school, and leave your donated books in the box.

Thank you, Mu-Yen, Grade 12.

ManageBac entries

Please ask your advisory students to label their experiences with the grade that they completed the service. This allows for proper archiving. More importantly, this means that we can quickly spot the entries that we need to read. Thank you!

ManageBac Entries

Dear Students,

There are 373 of you and only 1 of me….it would really help me if you labelled your experiences with the grade that you completed the service. In this way, we can properly archive your experiences. More importantly, this means that we (your teachers) will only be reading entries for the current school year.

If you missed signing up for a Club, please have a look at the list below to see what is still available.
