校長的信 Principal's Letter 3/9/2014

posted Mar 12, 2014, 9:02 AM by WebMaster Gcs

親愛的蓋城家庭成員們,大家好!

在上封信我提到學校將在427 慶祝建校40週年的里程碑,希望和過去歷任教師和校友們聯繫。感謝一些熱心的家長們, 提供給我最新的訊息。如果家長們知道以前校友的聯繫信息, 請讓我或任何董事會成員知道。我們將有一個籌備會來策劃這個活動。非常歡迎有興趣的家長們一起加入。或者,如果您有任何關於慶祝什麼好主意,請讓我們知道。

 
兩個星期前, 我們有一個專題演講, 請到羅揚銘博士來講食品安全   博士精彩和幽默的演講,吸引許多的家長和學生。他清晰的演說,讓大家對食品安全有進一步的了解和認識。大紀元時報有一篇特別新聞報導http://www.epochtimes.com/b5/14/3/2/n4095704.htm。羅博士也提供一段影片他在台灣做食品安全的演講  http://www.gcs-md.org/。 希望這篇文章和影片,給錯過這場演講的家長和學生們一個參考。

在這封信中,我想提醒大家學校的隱私權政策, 是以選擇退出為原則。如果家長不希望自己的照片或自己的孩子被張貼在學校的網站 (例如演講比賽, 慶祝新年活動等等),或任何公共媒體 (例如報紙等) ,請聯繫董事會,並填選擇退出表 。您有任何關於學校的隱私權政策的問題, 請直接聯繫我。

我要謝謝我們的資訊組組長顏照晃幫我們的網站做最新的更改。現在學校網首首頁,不但可以查閱校內的消息(如校長的信),也可以看到社區相關的新聞,這是給家長們提供方便, 而不需要去點擊其它的標籤。非常感謝照晃的幫助!

日光節約時間會在39日開始。請家長們不要忘記設置你的時鐘提前一小時。希望大家享受未來的春天!

  

祝闔家平安

Dear GCS family members,

As I mentioned in my last letter, we will be celebrating our milestone 40th birthday on 4/27/2014, and I was asking for contact information for our ‘lost’ GCS families (e.g. alumni, former teachers, etc).  Thanks to those parents who provided updated contact information.  Please contact me if you know any previous GCS family members, and invite them to our special event.  We’ll have a committee to plan this event.  You’re very welcome to join the committee. Or, if you have any good idea regarding the celebration, please let us know as well.

We had a guest speaker, Dr. Martin Lo, who gave a speech on the subject of food safety two weeks ago.  Dr. Lo gave an excellent speech to a full room of parents and students.  He used his humor and a clear presentation to deliver information on a scientific subject. There was a news article that reported this event http://www.epochtimes.com/b5/14/3/2/n4095704.htm (Chinese only).  Dr. Lo also provided a link to a video with a similar speech he did in Taiwan. http://www.gcs-md.org/ (Chinese only).  I believe this article and video clip will be helpful not just for the audience who attended, but also for those parents who missed the speech.

In this letter, I want to remind all parents of our school’s “opt-out” privacy policy.  If parents do not want photos of themselves or their children to be posted on our school website, or possibly in public media, please contact the Board and complete an “opt-out” form.  Please contact me directly if you have any questions regarding this policy.

I want to thank our IT lead, Chao-Huang Yen, who helped to make changes on our website.  In our school home page, you can view Internal news (e.g. Principal’s Letter) and also review External/Community news, for parents’ convenience.  Thanks a lot for Chao-Huang’s help!!

Daylight Savings Time begins on 3/9/14.  Please don’t forget to set your clock ahead one hour.  I believe that you all will enjoy the coming Spring!

 

Sincerely,

Hueling Tsai Evans
