This year’s Chinese New Year assembly is on Friday, February 13, happening in just two weeks. Can all homeroom teachers please remind your students or send notices home for dressing up in traditional Chinese clothes for that day? We’ll have dragon/lion dances, exciting Wei Feng drums, and folk dancers performing in front of the Academic Building. We’ll also have folk art and crafts vendors exhibiting their arts and products in the Foyer. The students can also bring some money and buy goodies they like. Please find the assembly schedule and program in the attachment.

Just a quick reminder to MYP teachers that I will be out learning about the rich cultural heritage of Nanjing with Grade 8’s all day tomorrow. Juan said that he is happy to do both of our jobs tomorrow since he basically already does every other day anyway. Perfect!
Please see attached SET minutes.

There will be a new format to the MYP Swim Gala this year. On Wed 11 Feb (Day 3) the Gr6&7 Gala will be during Block 3, Gr8&9 during Block 4 and Gr10 – 12 during Block 5. This means that outside of these blocks, classes will run as normal (except for Gr11 who are having an EE day). If you teach any of the above grades during the blocks they are scheduled to have their gala, then you will be at the pool rather than teach your class. More information will be given closer to the date.
Homeroom teachers of grade 3, 4 and 5, please let your students know that ‘Sketch and Talk’ ASA is canceled on Jan. 26, Monday.
