Spring Trip


Apr. 29

6-8th grade is preparing for a Spring Trip the week of May 23-27. This is a week-long program of learning outside of the classroom. Due to the current travel restrictions and concerns, we are preparing two plans. First, we are hoping to travel to JiXian for 4 nights of activity. If this is not possible, we will stay closer to home, hopefully having some overnight activity if permissible by COVID-19 safety protocol. Students are welcome to “opt-out” but they will be deeply missed and there is no alternate program offered.

Apr. 29

We will soon have an 8th grade parent meeting about next year’s classes and the transition to high school. 8th grade students will also receive next year’s Course Guide and a planning tool to plan their schedule soon. There are not many options for a 9th grade student, but they will get a chance to learn about the high school credit system and will enroll in classes using PowerSchool.

AP test


Apr. 29

AP testing starts next week. High school students have worked hard this year and seem prepared and ready for the tests. A reminder any work missed during the testing time in classes is still necessary to complete and submit.

Spring Trip


Apr. 29

Teachers have been planning for the annual High School Spring Trips the week of May 23-27. We will not be able to travel as we have in the past, but still look forward to a good time of fellowship and learning outside of the classroom. Due to current COVID-19 control measures, we are planning two possibilities and we will know what we can do as we get closer to the date. We will stay in Tianjin, but hope to go to JiXian if possible. If not, we will stay closer to school and have programming as we are able. The teachers are excited for this chance to spend time with the students doing interesting activities! Those wishing to opt-out of off-campus activities can do so, but no other programming is offered.

Scheduling for next year's course


Apr. 29

Scheduling tools for next year's course selection will be sent to students and parents in G8-12 soon. Parents are encouraged to look through the Course Guide (sent in the email). Students will be invited to a meeting where they will sign-up for classes on PowerSchool during the school day.
