Weekly Updates - January 13th, 2020
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Please see below for this week’s newsletter.
Morning Assembly Recap
This week we sang 新年歌曲-新年好 (Happy New Year) in the morning.
We learned 千里之行，始于足下, a thousand miles begin with a single step.
Idiom of the day 温故知新, it means you gain new understanding, new insight as you review old materials.
Reserved Parking Spots
Parents, please be respectful of the reserved parking spots by not parking your vehicle there. Our teachers have reserved parking so that they don’t have to spend extra time finding parking spaces in the morning. Our generous donors donated thousands of dollars to improve our school, to help us provide the highest quality education to our students. We thank their generosity and show our appreciation by dedicating parking spaces for them. Once again, please do not park your vehicle at any reserved parking spot.
Used Book Exchange Fair
A parent came to me with a brilliant idea of starting a used book exchange fair. I am so excited about this idea I want to put it out there. I will work out the details with our staff and parent volunteers. Stay tuned for more information.
Morning Drop Off
Thank you all for your understanding and for keeping all of our precious children safe.

MIMS was awarded a Citation of Design Excellence and recognized for its cultural transparency and integration, as well as its utilization of Chinese cultural elements throughout the campus.
