終於到了第三十週!家長及學生們一學年的辛苦耕耘在這一天大豐收!很感謝出席畢業典禮的家長同學們,跟畢業生們一起歡慶這重要的時刻。在此恭喜今年畢業的三位T9班同學:本多瞳,林裕傑,黃靖軼,經過了十一年的堅持,在今年建立了重要的里程碑。校長致詞說到,“今後希望做每件事情,都能如同學習中文所有的這份堅持,堅持會帶你走向成功。” 理事長張雯琪女士用對三位畢業生個別的回顧與勉勵來祝福他們並鼓勵在校生要堅持學中文。畢業家長代表林志安先生先生也感慨地說,就算十一年走得很艱辛,在這一刻他很慶幸這些家長與孩子一直以來的”堅持“,他們此刻才能在這裡得到成果。今年的畢業班黃玉屏老師以「和自己賽跑的人」為題製作紀念影片,感性地說,看著這些孩子們長大,在這裡交到朋友,學到了中文,但更重要的就是認識了自己的文化背景,在自我認知後勇於表達,不斷前進。

畢業典禮結束以後緊接著進行校內校外比賽的頒獎典禮,還有成績成就獎的頒發。今年初次廢除成績排名制度,啟用「成績優異、優良、優秀」三項獎勵方式來讓文協成為一個學習與競爭充滿溫馨的自我期許的環境。除此之外,並頒發成績進步獎及全勤獎給努力學習的孩子們,希望他們對於中文持續保持學習熱情。詳細獎項名單。

特別感謝以下當日義務幫忙的家長:文雯女士及王翰身先生流暢的主持(典禮準時四點結束!),電腦影音操控沈以智先生,蘇匯豐先生幫我們全程攝影,以及在門外辛苦顧前台註冊的Ms. Lili Chen及陳怡璇女士!畢業暨結業頒獎典禮加謝師宴相簿

在此再次感謝所有師生,校務工作人員,理事會義工家長們這一年的辛勞,本學年圓滿結束!還沒有報名的同學們,不要忘了將報名表於七月十五日前郵戳為憑寄出以獲得優惠。祝大家有一個開心與平安的暑假!我們九月八日學校見!

We are finally done with all 30 weeks! All parents and students’ hard work had paid off on this day! Huge thanks to all parents and students who attended the graduation ceremony to celebrate this important moment with this year’s graduating students. Congratulations to our three graduates this year: Hitomi Honda, Natacia Huang, and Brandon Lin. After 11 years of commitment for Chinese learning, they have reached this important milestone.

Principal Kan in his speech recognized the perseverance that carried them through the years, and reminded them to keep that in their hearts as they do everything going forward, because perseverance will lead you to success! Chairperson Ms. Angel Chang reminisced great moments the three had in school and the hardship each had overcame, to remind current students to not give up easily. Graduating parent Anchor Lin, representing all parents, also mentioned that, despite all the hardship throughout these years, he is very proud of all three of them for their commitment and hard work to be able to be here today. Ms. Cathleen Hwang, the teacher of this year’s T9 class said with sentiments, she was there to witness these three growing in the school, to become who they are today, they not only learned Chinese here and made new friends, more importantly, they have also connected their cultural background and family history with their self identity. She encouraged the graduates to be strong stating who they are. As the title of the memorial video states ~ “there’s no finish line, we run for the next goal set by ourselves”.

Award Ceremony followed right after Graduation. The school presented trophies and certificates to students who participated in school-wide, regional, and ACS (Association of Chinese Schools) Annual Conference contests. We also presented achievement awards to students in all classes. This year, the school had decided to convert to the system that’s used in American education system of honoring achievements with placing students in High Honor Roll, Honor Roll, and Merit Roll based on their grades range. We are hoping this can minimize controversies around our mission. CCALI’s mission is not to have children compete among each other, but to encourage self-motivated learning behavior. Furthermore, there are also Academic Achievement Awards and Perfect Attendance Awards for students who have committed and thrived throughout the school year. We are hoping this encourages them to continue in this learning journey.

Last but not the least, we would like to extend appreciation to the following parents for volunteering on the day: Wendy Vung and Jet Wang for being great hostess and host who kept the program running smoothly (we ended before 4pm!), Richard Shen for technology and media controls, Joseph So for being an awesome photographer the entire day! Lili Chen and Lydia Chen for staying at the front desk and helped out with registration.

We want to thank all the parents and students, all staff members, our Board of Directors and volunteer parents for yet another great year of success! For students who have not registered yet, don’t forget to mail out your registration form postmarked before July 15 to receive early registration discount! We wish everyone a happy and safe summer! We will see you all on September 8 in school!

本週活動 This Week (27 of 30)

華測兒測考試

本週是華測兒測的考試,學校總共有29位學生參與。如同教務主任Sara在考試說明會中提到的,對兒童而言,他們可以瞭解自己的華語程度,進而激勵自己學習華語的熱忱與自信,並挑戰自我能力; 對家長而言,瞭解孩子學習華語的狀況,進而規劃與調整孩子學習華語的方法與步調。這是台灣國家華語測驗推動工作委員會所提供的資源,希望大家都能充分利用受益!

年終家長大會

本週我們也舉辦了年終的家長大會,學校和協會提供了今年度的財務與營運報告,也非常開心地歡迎了五位新理事會成員!恭喜Jet Wang續任理事,還有Garda Lu, Mia Lin, Michael Kong, Richard Shen,四位家長的加入,協會與學校都非常榮幸與開心有新的聲音和力量,期待2019-20學年度新氣象!

好消息:學業成績啟用新的獎勵方式以及互動班採用九年級制

為了順應美制學校班級不排名的趨勢,經過了老師與行政部門的討論,我們學校自今年開始取消排名,同時並啟用「成績優異、優良、優秀」三項獎勵方式來讓文協成為一個學習與競爭充滿溫馨的自我期許的環境!互動班採用九年級制也是回應家長的訴求,讓用拼音學習中文的學生都經過P7/P8/P9三年的學習來達到高年級實用中文的程度,學校也採用新的、具有完備的網站配備的一套教材來配合這一措施。

為了我們的學生學好中文,我們都會努力朝著好的方向去做。

文協開放說明會

上週的成果展開放日得到不錯的迴響,這週繼續有新家長學生聯絡參觀我們的學校和教室,感謝所有家長,工作人員的宣導幫忙,讓更多想學習中文的朋友認識長島文協。接下來的兩週上課日(5/12和6/2) 我們都會開放參觀,請大家繼續跟朋友家人宣傳。

CCCC/TOCFL Exams

This week CCCC and TOCFL exams took place in school. There were 29 students registered and participated. Just like what Sara mentioned in the exam Q&A session, this test is for children to understand their Chinese proficiency, setting goals for their learning; For the parents, it can be used to understand how well the children are learning Chinese and provide adjustment or assistance based on the test results. This is a great resource provided by Taiwan Education Division, we hope everyone can make good use of it!

Year-End All Parents Meeting

This week All Parents Meeting was held in lecture hall. The school and association presented the budget and operation summary for the parents attended for 2018-19 school year. The association was very excited to have 5 new Board members joined us: Jet Wang, who was re-elected for a 2nd term, Garda Lu, Mia Lin, Michael Kong, and Richard Shen were elected for their 1st term as Board of Directors. We are looking forward to a successful and brand new 2019-20 school year!

Great News! New Grading System and Interactive Pinyin System Extending to 9th Grade

In the past, we have followed the ranking system that’s used in Asian culture for our grading and awarding. This year, the school had decided to convert to the system that’s used in American education system of honoring achievements with placing students in High Honor Roll, Honor Roll, and Merit Roll based on their grades range. We are hoping this can minimize controversies around our mission. CCALI’s mission is not to have children compete among each other, but to encourage self-motivated learning behavior.

At the same time, we have extended our Interactive Pinyin Program up to 9th grade. This is in response to parents’ inquiries where they wish to continue children’s Chinese learning onto a higher level that can lead to practicality. The school is prepared with lesson plans with advanced materials including web applications which helps to make the program successful.

The school continues to strive for a better learning environment for our children in their Chinese immersion journey.

CCALI Open House Continues

The school has received great feedback from last week’s Open House. We continued to receive interest and inquiries about the school, and there are new parents and students come in this week as well to observe.
