Dear Springleaf Parents,
2020 has not been an easy year for anyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people's lives all over the world. How can we overcome COVID-19 limitations and work to make positive changes in our community? At Springleaf Chinese School, we are trying to do our best during this difficult time. We moved all of our courses online starting from spring 2020. All of our classes will also be taught remotely via Zoom for spring 2021. We hope that the students will be back to real classrooms when coronavirus is contained.
Attached, please find the Springleaf Chinese School newsletter for the 2019-2020 school year and the class schedule for spring 2021. We are very grateful to the teachers for their hard work and high-quality teaching in service of our school and our community. Additionally, we would like to thank our parents for their continued support. Each of you makes the Springleaf community unique and special! In our annual newsletter, we’ll present the growth and achievements of our students, through some descriptions of what students learned this past year and exhibits of student work.
Please enjoy the selected students’ Chinese essays. Although there are some grammatical errors and typos in their Chinese writing, which may still have traces of the English format, you can see how students have weaved their learnings from Chinese school into their everyday lives through their essays. The diversity of culture fostered in the classroom provides students with greater perspective and global mindset. Chinese stories, poems and prose have played a significant role in nurturing the students’ literary imaginations and improving their literary appreciation.
Although there is no work from the math classes that can be presented to parents, the children have done many math exercises and proofs in the classroom. Mrs. Chen and Mrs. Yang held Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, SAT, ACT, and SAT Math Subject Test preparation classes last school year. The math classes offered at Springleaf help our students approach math problem solving with greater confidence. A strong command of mathematics enhances students’ logical thinking and analytical skills. With the rapid development of AI and big data in recent years, a solid mathematical foundation will prepare our students for pathways in science and technology.
Education in the arts is an indispensable part of a child’s development. Arts education helps to develop children’s emotional expression, regulate stress and enrich their lives. Under the guidance of Mr. Zhong, the students learned many painting techniques and extended their artwork with their own creativity. Mr. Zhong is an excellent artist and teacher. In the newsletter, we invite you to appreciate the imaginative artwork created by our students.
In the coming school year, we are offering Chinese course and art courses for different levels. If you are interested in registering your children for spring 2021 classes, As always, we welcome feedback and input from our Springleaf parents.
