本周 This Week
Dear LISOC parents,
Welcome back to school! School wants to thank our admin team, teachers and our parents for their prompt action and collaboration in dealing with snow emergency last Sunday. Particularly we want to thank Prof. Zhu Wei for his efforts in making a trip to school physically in such a bad weather early that morning so that we could know what happened on campus. This coming Sunday March 1st our admin on duty will be 章新生/胡裔仁. Please continue to support them as usual.
School is preparing debate team for 华夏总校辩论赛 and Dean's office has asked our teachers to help organize it. Please let Dean's office now if your children is interested in participating. We are also looking for parents who can help our students prepare the debate with writing and coaching. It will be a great experience for both our students and parents. Liu Fangwei has volunteered for the coach position as she usually did before. However we need more parents get involved. Thanks!
To promote public recognition of LISOC, school had designed new school logo and seal, which you will see in school. From now on, we will start to use them and we are also in the process of service marking those logo and seal. School wants to thank Li Bing, one of our parents, for legal preparation of service marking on behalf of school.
School want to particularly thank Prof. Zhu Wei and Li Bing for their generous donation to support school in addition to their devoted time for school. Prof. Zhu Wei decided to donate half of his income from his Tai Chi class to school. Li Bing is kindly helping school prepare the legal application for school service mark and in addition he will donate related legal expense back to school.

Crestwood has been the top summer day camp on Long Island for 60 years. On Crestwood’s beautiful 15 acre campus, campers will enjoy a morning of Chinese cultural and education classes, followed by various other activities. Together with school, Crestwood will come to our school this Sunday and introduce this unique program to our parents. It will be at 2nd floor glass room lounge starting at 2 pm. Please see the flyer in email for more details.
School has decided to open an official Wechat group for all our parents in order to promote communication between parents and school. Here I attached LISOC school wechat policy which was approved by school Board and group QR code on the 2nd page. Please understand the group should only be used for discussion about school related issues under direct supervision by school admin. Please also note that to join the group, invitation will be needed after 100 members. Parent-to-parent invitation is allowed but please do not invite non-LISOC members without approval from school.
Thank you for your attention to all these matters and see you this Sunday (3/1)!
