CS Weekly: 礼堂投影屏幕筹款/ Mathcounts 好成绩/ 画画比赛

大家好!
1. 本周日3/24没有中文学校,下周3/31恢复正常上课。
2. 关于礼堂投影屏幕事件,请您看附件。
学校已经支付礼堂屏幕$6200.59赔偿款,作为一个非盈利性组织确实是一笔不小的开支。现在我们倡议全校家长自愿捐款,协助学校分担费用。捐款活动日期是下周日3/31 ,方式有两种:
- 学校餐厅进门口将摆设捐款箱,大家可以自愿匿名捐赠。
- 如果愿意实名捐赠,请带支票(Payable to: CCC Chinese School)交给学校财务处陈蓬或陈昱,并领取收据。
最终捐款金额将于4/7之前向大家公布,不足以抵扣屏幕赔偿款的部分将由学校填补,超出部分将设专款只用于学期末field day学生活动。
3.重大好消息:我校学生在MATHCOUNTS竞赛中取得优异成绩!
MATHCOUNTS是一个有着36年历史的全国性的数学竞赛,目标是以有趣的方式提高美国学生的数学技能。 服务目标主要是正处于发展和保持数学兴趣和能力关键阶段的中学生。
3月9日在Troy
RPI
MATHCOUNTS竞赛,有来自纽约州各地的200多名学生切磋数学。我们中文学校有几位学生参加,其中有三名学生强势进入纽约州个人前12名;Forest更是取得了个人组第二名的优异成绩并赢得参加全国比赛的机会。
这些学生都从一年级开始就在中文学校参加数学班,
他们是我校的第一批数学班学生,我们为他们感到骄傲,并给他们大大地点赞!也衷心感谢陆群老师多年来组织数学班,帮助和成就了一大批孩子!
4.中文学校年度画画比赛,今年的主题是:我的生活。交稿截止日3/31,请填好交稿label,一起交给PTA 孙鹏博。
_____________________________
1.There is NO Chinese school on this Sunday 3/24.  The school will resume on next Sunday 3/31.
2.Call for fundraising. Please see the attachment for the details. There
were a group of students playing on the stage at the auditorium and then the projector screen was found damaged on the corners of the both sides on 9/30/2018. Chinese School has paid $6200.59 to Shaker to replace the screen. Now we call for your general donation to help us share the cost on next Sunday 3/31:
- Please feel free to donation any amount into the donation box at the entrance. 
-
Please make a check payable to CCC Chinese School and pass it to Mr Peng Chen or Ms Yu Chen. They will issue a donation receipt to you. 
We will announce the total amount by 4/7. The donation will be used to cover the screen cost. Any surplus will be fully used for the students activity on the last day of school. We sincerely thank you for all your help. 
3. In its 36th year, MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide program designed to improve math skills among U.S. students in a way that’s fun and engaging. Sponsors target middle school students, who are at a critical stage in developing and sustaining math interest and ability.
More than 200 students from all over New York state, including New York City, put their problem-solving skills to the test Saturday in the MATHCOUNTS competition at RPI in Troy on March 9th. Our Chinese school had quite a few students competed for local middle school. We have three students scored in the top 12 individuals in the state. Forest scored a 2rd place in individuals and win a spot to compete in National Competition. Those students have been studied math with our Chinese math class since first grade. They are our first group math class students. We are very proud of them! We would like to extend our thanks to the math program leader Ms Qun Lu too!
4. Arts exhibit topic: My life, submission due by 3/31.
