BCIS曦城协同校长新春祝福 | Happy New Year From Our Principal
Happy New Year
Dear BCIS Family and Community:
respectful congratulations on the New Year
(gōng hè xīn xǐ)
to record the happiness from the new spring
Spring Festival and Chinese New Year are upon us. Happy Year of the Ox/Bull！Over the next two weeks, we sincerely hope that you and your family are able to relax and enjoy a break from the rigors of schoolwork.
The New Year holiday is a time to reconnect with family and friends, to create warm and lasting memories, and to look towards the future built on relationships, prosperity, and growth.
The BCIS faculty and staff are happy to announce the Winter MAP scores that shows our students have averaged one full academic year of growth in Reading and Mathematics over the last semester – this is incredible news for our students and demonstrates the full commitment that teachers have shown to the success of all students. Over the next months we hope to continue to build on this success and move students further towards concept mastery.
This level of success also demonstrates the involvement of our parents in students’ academic growth. It is because of all of you working towards the common goal of increased student learning that students have been able to achieve the levels of success they now demonstrate. It is with thanks that we recognize all of our parents and faculty in the combined efforts put forth.
We want to also give a special thank you to our Chinese teachers, Ms. Yang, Ms. Gong, Ms. Zhang, and Ms. Shen who worked diligently to prepare everyone for the Chinese Cultural Festival celebrated on February 5. Along with Ms. Li and Ms. Huang in the Art Department, as well as numerous other staff and students, the festival was an amazing event allowing everyone to enjoy the day and learn more about Chinese games and sports through participation and collaboration.
We hope that the next two weeks will help everyone to rest up, to rejuvenate, and to come back to school ready to continue pushing forward. We look forward to having our students and staff back on February 22.
Again, Happy New Year!
Tim Allen, Ph.D.,
