Fall Break: Monday, October 5 to Friday, October 9, 2020
We will be on FALL BREAK from Monday, October 5 to Friday, October 9, 2020. We wish each MAK family a happy week off and a wonderful time with family! School will resume on Monday, October 12th.
FAMILY DAY PARKING PERMIT AUCTION!!
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 next fall. They are so excited for the opportunity to serve communities here in Taiwan and around Asia and would greatly appreciate your help in achieving their fundraising goals with this important and fun tradition!
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!! You can use this link or the QR code attached to access the form through which you can place your bid. Bids are due by Sunday, Oct. 18 at 11:59PM. Winners will be notified by email! Please pay at the school office and receive your parking permit by the end of the school day Wednesday, Oct. 21 to avoid losing your spot to the next highest bidder!
The Class of 2022 thanks you for your support!

MAK will provide transportation by bus to KAS after school for the games. However, parents are responsible to pick students up after the game. If a parent is unable to arrange transportation for their child, please let us know by emailing Mr. Gregg (email@example.com) and the student will not be permitted to go to the game and will go home as usual. Currently, KAS is not allowing any spectators to these games due to the coronavirus precautions. Once this changes, Mr. Gregg will send out more information. Only players and coaches at this point will be allowed on their campus. Thank you for your understanding.
學校將在放學後，提供前往美國學校的交通，但是家長必須在賽事結束後負責接送孩子回家。如果父母無法為孩子安排賽後的交通，請電郵知會Mr. Gregg(firstname.lastname@example.org)。該學生將無法參加比賽，並照常在放學後回家。目前，由於冠狀病毒的預防措施，高雄美國學校不允許任何觀眾進場觀賽。若有任何異動，Mr. Gregg將發送更多相關訊息。目前只有球員和教練能夠進入他們的校園。 謝謝您的諒解。
