Dear Parents,  親愛的家長們,平安!

We have been notified that a few of our students have been diagnosed with Influenza Type A. If your child has body aches, fever, cough and/or runny nose, please keep them home to rest and drink plenty of fluids. They may return to school when they are fever-free (without the use of medicine) and without body aches.
我們已經收到通知,我們有一些學生被診斷出患有A型流感。如果您的孩子有身體疼痛、發燒、咳嗽,以及/或流鼻涕的現象,請讓您的孩子在家休息並且多喝水。在他們退燒後(不服藥的狀況下)以及身體不再疼痛後,再來上學。

To keep your children healthy, remind them to get lots of sleep, eat healthy foods, exercise and wash hands well and often.
為了保持您孩子的健康,請提醒他們保持充足的睡眠、吃健康的食物、多運動以及勤洗手。

Thank you,謝謝您!

FAMILY DAY PARKING PERMIT AUCTION!!  家庭日停車證拍賣!!

This year we will once again have an auction in which parents can bid for a spot in the school parking lot during Family Day and have their car washed by the 11th grade class!  This auction is voluntary and all proceeds will go to the 11th grade Service Trip fund as the Juniors have been working hard to raise money for their Impact trips to Cambodia and Indonesia this fall. They are so excited for the opportunity to serve communities around Asia and would greatly appreciate your help in achieving their fundraising goals with this important and fun tradition!  They will be teaching and interacting with children, working on infrastructure projects, and having a profound and meaningful impact on communities in these countries. 在今年的家庭日,我們仍然會有停車證的拍賣,為了讓家長們可以在家庭日把車子停在停車場並且讓11年級生幫忙洗車來出價。11年級生已經為了他們今年要到柬埔寨以及印尼的影響力之旅開始募款了,所以拍賣的全部所得將會成為他們服務之旅基金的一部分。他們因著有這個可以服務在亞洲不同社區的機會感到非常興奮,而且他們也非常感激您藉由這個重要且好玩的傳統來幫助他們達成募款的目標。他們將會進行一些教學並且和孩子互動、從事一些基礎設施的工程,並且對這些國家的社區產生意義深遠的影響力!

Only guests who bid and win will have access to the school parking lot during Family Day! All other vehicles will have to park outside the gate so be sure and bid high to support the Juniors.  The car wash is optional, you can select to simply have the parking spot, but it would be the 11th graders pleasure to wash your car to show you our appreciation for your bid. Spots are limited!!  Details on how to place bids and when the bidding will be closed will be distributed through parent LINE groups and email this week. Thank you for your support!
只有出價且得標的賓客能夠得到,家庭日學校停車場的停車證!其他所有車輛則必須停在學校大門以外的地方,所以請務必出高價來支持我們的11年級生。洗車是選擇性的,您可以選擇只要停車位,但是我們的11年級生會覺得很榮幸可以用洗車的方式來表達對於您出高價的感激。停車位有限喔!我們將會在本週透過家長LINE群以及電郵方式寄出如何出價以及何時結束競標等細節。謝謝您的支持!


這學期的Shark Review會開放給大班到12年級學生和老師們。歡迎投稿短篇小說和攝影作品。請把做品寄到sharkreview@mca.org.tw。投稿截止日為2019年10月21日。
