美中实验学校夏令营 欢迎您! Welcome to ACS Summer School
Words From the Director
Dear Parents and Students:
How are you! The registration for the 2017 ACS Summer School has begun. On behalf of our entire faculty team, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all the students, alumni and new, and their parents to sign up. We thank you for your love and support for the Summer School program.
It has been our goal to provide students a fun, happy and rewarding summer program. It is also our wish to help the parents meet their needs. Ever since ACS Summer School started in 2012, we have stayed true to our policy of “education through entertainment”, and have built up our distinguished feature programs in promoting and developing Chinese tradition and culture. Our teachers are professionally-trained, loving and devoted, and our staff team is efficient and responsible. Besides the main course of Chinese and Math, we offer dozens of elective courses and a series of special activities. Through the efforts of all of our teachers and the support from the parents, ACS Summer School has run successfully in the past five years. Campus activity variety grows, the number of the students increases, and the School is loved by the students and trusted by their parents. I am proud to say that ACS Summer School is now the largest, most influential and popular summer camp program in the Greater Washington area.
For this year, we have decided to make innovative and pragmatic changes to the structure of our classes and the teaching contents. We will set up four (4) classes according to the students age, namely, teenage-class (age 10 and up), upper elementary class (age 8-9), lower elementary class (age 6-7), and preschool class (age 4-5). By this change, classroom activity can be better focused and organized, and the parents can sign up for their children easily. We believe this will benefit our students.
In addition, we have new curriculum as well. First, we will host for the second time a two-week event of the “Chinese Culture Theme Park”, which is a learning program sponsored by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the Chinese State Council and participated by most experienced teachers in China. Over ten exceptional teachers will come to our School, bringing with them profound and interesting programs in Chinese tradition and culture. Every student will surely learn something that they will never forget. Don't miss this rare opportunity! Second, we want to leverage our own faculty's skill and open up new feature classes such as “Rolling Math”, “Public Speaking”, “Martial Arts” and so on. Other courses like Singing, Dancing, Art, Calligraphy, Science and Experiments, Arts and Crafts, International Chess and Computer Programming will also have updated lesson plans, so that the students will have fruitful experience every day.
Our Summer School will also provide platforms for the students to engage themselves in team work through group activities such as performing, in which they are encouraged to speak in Pu Tong Hua, learn various arts/skills, and practice good behaviors that would benefit them in the future. Last but not least, our program will provide free lunches and snacks that are healthy and loved by the students. The preschoolers will receive special care from the teachers. For more information, please visit ACS Summer School's website.
We are ready to present an enriched and colorful summer time for our students. We are ready for the students to come, and the Summer School will become more brilliant with Students’ arrival! We look forward to meeting you all soon! Thank you.
