本周 This Week
Dear LISOC parents,
Welcome back to school! Hope you all had enjoyed your MLK holiday and our Blue Mountain ski trip! This coming Sunday 1/25 is our last day for our Fall semester. Our school is still open for registration for our Spring semester, which starts in 2/1/15. If you have any question, please come to our front desk. This week, our school admin on duty is: 罗涌/兰剑宇. Please continue to support us.
This Sunday school has our final exam. Teachers should have sent out preparation instructions. Please help your children prepare for the final exam. If you have any question, feel free to contact your teacher and our dean's office. The exam will be in the first 2 classes. Our culture classes will continue as routine.
Dean's office had sent to our parents an email survey for 6-month evaluation on our teachers through surveymonkey. It only takes a few minutes of your time and a few clicks. Please put your comments to our teachers as well. All evaluations will be anonymous. Your feedback is critical to our school and it will be used as our major measure to evaluate our teachers. Please coordinate with Dean's office and finish it as soon as possible. Any question, please come to Dean's office.
