新世纪中文学校积极参与社区活动

11/12新世纪中文学校中国风空竹队和合唱团队员参加了在Northville Ridgewood小学的第二届国际文化夜的表演。国际夜共有来自17个国家的展示——美食,游戏,手工,舞台表演及丰富多彩的文化展示像一把钥匙带领孩子打开了走出家门认识世界的大门。

我校中国风空竹队和两位合唱团的小团员受邀参加了表演。空竹队的孩子们已经在一起训练了五六年,不仅舞台经验丰富,表演气氛热烈,而且在表演结束之后的自由活动中,每一个队员都非常耐心地与小学生们互动,向他们教授空竹技巧,活动结束最后也主动帮忙收场。

这几年孩子们已经成长为成熟有责任感的青少年。参加空竹演出的同学有: 叶华威,孟勋承,魏明悦,张语涵,蒋文竹,张逸凡,于天乐,Milena Topini,唐子瞻,文佐恩同时也表扬一下这几年空竹队的几位小老师们的认真教学和精心准备:叶珊珊,杨子墨,杨子涵,蒋文博。

来自中文学校合唱班的马驰远和文佑恩在家长的吉他伴奏下合唱了中文歌曲《萱草花》。悠扬婉转的音乐,纯洁动听的声音,孩子们的倾情表演取得了热烈的反响,给在场的各国友人留下了深刻的印象。

新世纪校委会

2021/8/29


Dear MNCCS parents, students,


We heartily affirm that our Schools’ objective for 2021-2022 to return to in-person instructional day at all grade levels; in short, keeping as many students learning in school as possible throughout the coming academic year. Given the current state of the pandemic that objective seems well within reach. As we look to September, updated guidelines from the CDC are emerging for schools, and we anticipate guidelines at the local level will be forthcoming as well.

The MNCCS administrative team have drafted a preliminary outline of the pandemic-related precautions and protocols we anticipate will be in place in September.

1. At this time, MNCCS does not require but strongly recommend that all eligible admin team members, teachers and students be vaccinated for COVID-19. The greater our community’s immunity, the greater our latitude in returning to our routine programming.


2. State and local recommendations/requirements for face covering in school settings continue to evolve. MNCCS requires all to have their face covered when inside the school building.


3. We will have the temperature checked before entering the school building. We also expect that students and parents monitor their own and their family’s health, including periodic temperature checks at home prior to sending students to school. Any individual who does not feel well or exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 or other communicable illness, must stay home from school and make sure to contact the MNCCS office via email info@mnccs.com.


4. We will work with Schoolcraft to make sure the buildings are thoroughly cleaned the day before our class. There will be hand sanitizer in the classrooms for students to use.


5. During the school day, only the main entrance ( south) will be opened. The other entrance will be opened to enter temporarily around 10 mins before the class.


6. We will welcome only students and school staff in the building, and the parents will not be allowed to enter without an appointment. Younger students (K-4) will be led into their classroom by volunteers from the designated areas. Those students will be led outside to the same areas to meet their parents once their class time is over. Parents please wait in those areas to pick your child(ren) on time.


7.Those late parents need to go to the school office (RM420) to pick up their kids. There will be a fee if parents are more than 10 mins late.


8. Food consumption is prohibited within the building, but water is allowed.


9. At all grade levels, classrooms will be configured to accommodate the 3-feet of physical distance between students.


The plan will be updated accordingly in response to the evolving state of the pandemic in the coming weeks and months. Given that emerging national, state and local COVID-19 guidelines and requirements may continue to change before the start of school in September, adjustments to the Plan will likely be necessary, with some final decision-making occurring closer to the start of school. We will communicate updates throughout the school year.

Thank you and have a great summer!

MNCCS 2021-2022 School Year Announcement and Open for Enrolment

The curriculum for the 2021-2022 school year has been scheduled and updated. MNCCS will adopt a hybrid learning approach this year by offering both in-person and virtual classes. This is another new teaching practice carried out by the MNCCS for this special period. The in-person class will start from 12:00PM on Sunday and end at 5:00 PM. Please refer to the school registration website reg.mnccs.org for the specific class time. The virtual class time will be agreed upon by the students and the teacher together. Most Chinese courses will have both virtual and in-person classes while our culture classes, including our award winning Academic Games team training, will only have in-person choice to ensure the best learning experiences.

Please note it is not allowed to switch to the other type of learning when the school starts from 9/12 without a special reason. The school’s virtual classes are tentatively scheduled to run until the end of 2021. Based on the development of the pandemic at that time, the school will then decide whether to continue the online classes. At the same time, in accordance with the regulations and guidelines of the CDC, the state and the school district, MNCCS will also make adjustments to the arrangement of in-person classes, and does not rule out the option of switching to full online classes.

In order to ensure the safety and health of all teachers, students and staff who come to the school, MNCCS will have specific the COVID-19 prevention and regulations before the beginning of the school year, and we hope that everyone will abide by it.

2021-2022学年的课程已基本排定,根据CDC,密西根州政府和我们当地学区的关于疫情的建议和指南,并经过和家长,老师的协调,新世纪中文学校的开学模式将采用网课和实体课两种方式同步进行,这是新世纪中文学校针对特殊时期开展的又一次新的教学实践, 实体课和网课会在不同的时间分别独立进行。实体课堂时间将在周日12:00开始到下午五点结束,具体时间请参考学校注册网站reg.mnccs.org。网课将避开周日实体课,具体时间由选课的同学和老师共同商定。大部分的课程都有网课和实体课的选择,实体课能保证最佳的师生互动,同学互动的学习效果,网课可以给实在有顾虑的同学学习中文的机会。请大家按照自身情况和需求,尽快注册选择返校上课或远程网课,我们好落实安排实体课教室和网课时间。为保证教学进程的稳定有序,注册时选择后,非特殊原因,原则上不允许再更改上课方式。学校的网课暂定运行到2021年底,根据那时疫情的发展,学校再决定网课是否继续。同时,随着疫情的发展,根据CDC,州政府和学区的规定和指南,学校也会对实体课的安排作出调整,不排除转为全网课的选项。

针对实体课,为保证全体到校上课的师生员工的安全和健康,开学前,新世纪中文学校将有具体防疫措施和规章,望大家遵守。
