Hope you all had a nice "winter break" last week.

First of all,  a reminder that we are very close to make a decision if we can open the flex enrichment classes on  March 1. If you are interested, please fill the form or here now. We now have about 15 families showing interest so far. We will make a decision before Thursday of this week.  Three possible classes are:
  • Chinese paper cutting (4 weeks)
  • Java and web Development (10 weeks)
  • Scratch and HTML (10 weeks)  - for your reference see this introduction video  
Secondly, our parenting group is glad to invite June Fang (房君), one of our Chinese School parent, a Mason resident and mother of three with children age ranging from 10 to 20 years old, to speak on the topic of equipping ourselves and becoming a better communicator with our children. 

What:   Parenting experience with better communication
Who:    Mrs. June Fang and parenting group
When:  2:15PM this coming Sunday March 1 
Where:  Z105.

Mrs Fang will share the parenting skills she learned from reading parenting books and practical experience / lessons learned from raising her own three children.She will also share her collection of parenting books. Hope that would help you to find a book fits your parenting style.

Out parenting group welcome your participation. Please contact our coordinator Dihua Yang ( or me for any feedback and/or suggestion.

Last, please read and think the following message about the petition to White House about withdrawing indictment against Asian minority Officer Peter Liang. 

The url to the petition is
Petition Title: Demand Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth P. Thompson to withdraw indictment against Asian minority Officer Peter Liang!
"Prosecutors indicts Officer Liang for Political Gain! Asian American Police Officer Becomes Scapegoat! NYPD Officer, Peter Liang told his superiors that his gun had gone off unintentionally, the bullet rattling off a wall and into an unsuspecting man's chest, killing Akai Gurley. Nonetheless, the circumstances surrounding Mr. Gurley's death lead to a manslaughter indictment this week, whereas police officers in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner case were never charged. Criminal charges appeared more likely in the later two cases, but these two non-Asian Police Officers were never charged. "
Thanks a lot for the support!

PS.  Somebody left a brand new lady's top at MHS after our CNY program on 2/15. Please come to school next Sunday to pick it up.
