Over the two school days on 3/19 and 3/26, we collected $428 donation for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief. The money has been mailed to US Red Cross. Many thanks to all donors who lend their helping hands to the people in the disaster. Also we appreciate the volunteers who spent time and efforts to make this fund-raising event a success.

夏天, 旅行的季节到了  ( Summer time is travel time )

暑期将至, 不少家庭要开始做旅行的计划了. 之前学校AdminPTA已经陆续给大家了一些信息, 比如中国寻根之旅夏令营(见本周Admin email)以及南京大学海外青少年夏令营(PTA blog ).这里我们再给大家一些相关信息.
With summer break on the radar, it’s time for families to plan for the summer travel. There has been some information provided by school admin and PTA in the past few weeks (please see admin email and PTA blog). Here we have some more related information to share:

今年是辛亥百年. 中国大陆和台湾均有隆重的庆祝活动. 亚太文教基金会主办(西北中文学校协助)2011年国庆之旅, 九月底从西雅图出发, 先后在北京及台北渡过十一国庆及双十节. 此活动时间在学校的暑期之外, 但对于退休的长辈及无时间限制的家庭是个很好的回国及游览海峡两岸的时机.为获取较优惠的机票价格, 此行程需要在五月确定. 有兴趣的家庭请尽快email PTA询问详情.
