各位家長好,

希望大家都有個平安的萬聖節!

有件事要向大家報告,也希望各位能幫忙宣導。 上週日下午一點半左右,幾位蓋城中文學校的學生,使用Quince Orchard HS的體育館,校園工作人員要求所有人立刻離開, 因為沒有租用合約。另外有位老師於兩點前在教室準備教材, 也遭到校園工作人員制止,要求到兩點時才可以進教室。很抱歉, 這是蓋城中文學校的疏失,經過董事們緊急商議, 馬上採取下列補強措施,希望把不便減少到最低。

1. 於課前與課後,各多租用教室十分鐘,讓老師們有較充裕的時間, 使用教室。
2. 租用三間課外活動的教室,從4:10 到5:10。
3. 餐廳的使用時間是1:10到6:10。
4. 體育館的租用時間是2:00到5:00。

申請案已於週二送到ICB,但是作業速度的限制, 要到11月13日才能生效。

由於安全考量,學校裝有閉路監測系統,Quince Orchard HS的安全人員,從錄影帶中,認定我們違規,來電告知。 蓋城中文學校已經請老師,對學生加強宣導, 教室及設施的使用規則。也希望諸位,能提醒貴子弟,按時到校, 在餐廳集合,待兩點時,再進入教室。不要去地下樓,或二樓, 這是很重要的安全常識。

感謝王裕勝董事,費心費力接洽協調,學校教室與設施的租用, 相信在大家的努力與合作下,我們可以把不便減至最低。


閤府平安

Dear GCS families,
 
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
 
The purpose I am writing this letter to you is to make it clear for using Quince Orchard HS' facilities.  Last Sunday around  1:30pm, some GCS students were using QO's gym and a teacher was preparing material in the classroom, the building service staff came and asked them to stop all activities, because our lease hour not take effect until 2:00pm. So we do not have the right to use any of space.  Sorry for the inconvenience, we overlook the need of the preparation before class starting. Our school board members held a meeting and decided following steps:
 
1. Extend classroom using hours from 1:50 - 4:10pm.
2. Rent extra three classrooms from 4:10 - 5:10pm for extra-curriculum class.
3. Time to use cafeteria is 1:10 - 6:10pm.
4. Time to use Gym is 2:00 - 5:00pm.
 
GCS application submitted to ICB on last Tuesday, but it won’t take effect until Sunday of 11/13/2011.
 
GCS received a call from QO building manager last Monday that we violated the facility using rule based on their security camera record. Our teachers will communicate with our students to follow the rules for using QO's facilities, especially basement and second floor.  These spaces are not included in our leasing, we do not have right to go down or up the floor.  We need all the parents help to go over hours and rules with your children.
 
Thanks to our board member Mr. James Wang, he put a lot of efforts to deal with ICB for our facility leasing.  We will do our best to make sure our school running smoothly.
 
Sincerely yours,
Vincent Hsing

校長的信Principal Letter 8/17/2011

各位家長好,


夏季已過了大半,想必大家都有個愉快充實的假期吧!


蓋城中文學校有個好消息,要和大家分享。本校申請成立華語文數位學習中心,教學點的計劃,經僑委會核准,並同意補助開辦經費,上週經董事會同意,簽妥協議書,待最後手續完成後,即可開辨了。


緒位都知道,在美國讓我們的第二代學習華語,是有一定的難度。如何讓他們學的有趣開心,並把學得的知識與技巧應用在主流學校,甚至將來的大學申請及職場上,能有加分的效果,這些都是蓋城摸索及努力的方向。


什麼技巧是學習中文,所學到的能運用在未來的學習歷程中呢?

我認為有下列幾項:

 

  • 公眾場合的演説
  • 信息簡報
  • 使用數位工具的技巧
  • 中文本身


講話人人都會,但好壞差很多,透過學習訓練,肯定可以幫助同學講的更好。


信息的簡報與分享,幾乎是今日每個學生必備的技能。我們家的小朋友,從小學開始,毎年總會有二次以上的課程,需要搜集特定的主題,使用學校的軟體,製作簡報,並向全班作報告。


使用中文的人口,約占世界總人口的五分之一。

 

蔡校長時代,蓋城就開始整合傳統與數位教學方式。從低年級時,以注音打好發音基礎,中年級時,開始加入漢語拼音教學,高年級時,教授數位技巧的 課程,並舉辦相關的活動,如青春導覽員競賽,卡拉歐卡製作競賽,彩繪葫蘆兢賽等,讓同學們把學到的數位技巧,運用到信息簡報上,用中文發表演說。在今年的一些活動中, 很高興看到同學們都有顯著的進步和傑出的表現,希望在中文學校學到的知識和技巧,對同學們一生都有幫助。


讓我們一起努力,為孩子們提供一個好的學習環境!


蓋城需要家長們的支持與配合,若有任何指教,請與董事長劉衛良先生或我連絡。謝謝大家。


閤家平安

Dear GCS families,

 

Half of the summer is already over.  Hope everyone has a wonderful time.

 

Gaithersburg Chinese School has good news to share with you. GCS has applied to become a digital learning center teaching point plan, it has been approved by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Commission, and agreed to grant start-up funding. The GCS Board of Directors last week also has approved it and the contract of agreement was signed. We will start this project once the contract is finalized.

 

            There is a certain degree of difficulty to make our kids to learn Chinese. How will we make them willing to learn, but at the same time, be having fun? Also, acquiring knowledge and skill learned in Chinese school, students could apply the skill in mainstream schools and even the future of college applications as well as work places. All of above are our goal to achieve.

 

            What kind of skill and knowledge acquired from Chinese school also could use in future learning process as well?

I address some of the following points:

 

  • Public speech
  • Information presentation
  • Techniques using digital tools
  • Chinese itself

 

Everyone could speak but only a few of them fluency of the Chinese language. There are one in every five person are Chinese in today’s world population.   Learning and training could definitely help the students speak better.  A well preparation presentation and sharing of information become a must have skill in today’s school environment from elementary level.  The skill of utilizing digital tools is very important because it could help to improve your speech and presentation content. 

 

            A few years ago, GCS began to integrate traditional and digital teaching methods. We teach Chinese phonetic in student’s young age. Add Pinyin skill when students reach middle school. Then add more advance course in high school class and to challenge students with different competitions, for example: “Along the river during the QingMing Festival” Contest, Chinese Karaoke Film Contest, Chinese Gourd Art Contest etc. The goal is to provide a friendly environment, enable students to learn digital techniques, applied to the information briefing, and presented in Chinese. We are very happy to see most of students to have significant progress and outstanding performance. I hope the activities GCS provided help our students in the long run.

 

            Let us work together to provide our children with a great and interesting learning environment.  GCS needs your support and cooperation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our president, Mr. Liu Wei-liang or me. 

 

Sincerely,

Vincent Hsing
