    Dear students, parents, and friends in central Ohio:

    Hope you all had a wonderful summer! I’m pleased to let you know that registration for Fall 2014 at the Ohio Chinese School (OCS) has begun!

    OCS was founded a year ago. We started with only a few staff members, and grew to a school that offered over 60 courses, with more than 50 teachers and over 260 students. During the past year, the students and parents of OCS came to school every Sunday not only to learn Chinese, math, arts and sports, but also to share a sense of community together. As a member of the OCS family, you witnessed our birth, our commitment, and our growth. Now we’re in position to move steadily forward. At the end of last semester, we sought suggestions and feedback from parents, and adjusted our course offerings and schedules for the new school year. We’re offering more class choices for various age groups, especially for those who wish to take more Chinese, enrichment and activity classes. The new schedules will also make it easier for parents to drop off and pick up their children. Our Chinese course offerings include Ma Liping Chinese, JiDa Chinese, Pre-K and Kindergarten Chinese, Chinese culture, classics and idioms. For enrichment classes, you can choose from math courses for grade 1 through 11, Speech and Debate, English Reading and Writing, Hands-On Electronics, Video Game Programming, and SAT exam prep. We also offer activity classes of arts and crafts, dance, yoga, table tennis, basketball, badminton, kongfu, taichi, etc. Committed to making OCS a platform for education, entertainment and services for the Chinese and multi-cultural families in central Ohio, we also offer Fitness Club for Adults, Senior Activities Center, and Family Service Center.
    Scholarships are available for the new school year. Welcome both NEW and CURRENT students to apply

    Welcome to the Ohio Chinese School family!

    新东方的中文教学以寓教于乐的教学方法,让孩子和家长一起参与教学:九位学生参加《侨报作文比赛》,中文八年级同学郭瑶玉,在二千多名学生中脱颖而出,赢得优秀作文奖。马立平五班的学生们所自排自演的“三打白骨精”节目,还将走上俄亥俄亚洲节的舞台。《弟子规》和《中国文化三常》,更是引起俄亥俄州立大学东亚系的关注,双方将继续探讨中国文化教学的新思路和方法。

    新东方中文学校成功申请到中国国家汉办的HSK哥伦布地区唯一一个考点,为衡量海外中文教学创建一个新的平台,目前已经完成5月新东方HSK四级考试的考点报名工作,等待迎考。同时已经申请11月举行四~六级的HSK考试,同时开放哥伦布地区考生报名。

    新东方的文体课程不断翻新内容,手工、绘画、舞蹈、乒乓、羽毛球、瑜伽、摄影、古筝、吉他等,不仅有学生报名参加,家长也积极参与,课程从一个班增加到二个班。举办的乒乓球赛、手工作品比赛互动参与积极,让学生和家长兴奋不已。

    张校长同时感谢学校的近60位教师和家长义工志愿者群策群力、认真付出,在大家的共同努力下,新东方将为哥伦布地区的华裔家庭提供一个更加温暖如春、和谐交流的中国文化互动平台,为孩子们提供一个良好的学习环境。

    教务长于鸿远总结了教学组的工作情况,王建梅老师介绍了即将开始的夏令营课程和项目,阎恒老师介绍了奖学金申请和新东方中文学校经费计划。老师们分组讨论会上,大家积极发言,中文组就如何将新东方建成一所“利学、利民”的中文学校,能够更加贴合学生和家长的诉求,以及奖学金评选项目提出了很好的建议;文体组讨论在苗永杰老师带领下,大家在肯定现有教学计划的同时,踊跃提出新的建议和将在新学年开始的各类活动,确定将文体活动与中国文化相融合,更好地为孩子们创造一个中国文化学习的氛围。英数教学组和依凡老师共同探讨华裔子女英数教学的特点、受欢迎的课程、以及学生志愿者的协调等话题。与会讨论的老师们都非常愉快,表示非常喜欢这样的交流和讨论机会,大家一致表示:愿意与新东方中文学校一起,为了孩子们能够真正学到有用的知识而努力。

    教师研讨会期间,教务人员强调,强化教学质量管理、认真完成日常教学和学生及家长管理、注重老师和学生、家长的沟通和交流遵守学校的规章制度,共同建立良好的学习环境。

    2014年5月,新东方中文学校的第一届毕业生即将通过HSK考试,圆满毕业。5月18日,一场 别开生面的新东方首届毕业生毕业典礼将如期举行。我们期待,新东方中文学校,将继续面对红红火火的暑期文化课程、暑期小记者俱乐部、暑期文化艺术俱乐部和暑期SAT强化班。我们期待,2014年秋季新增加的课程,会受到哥伦布地区更多的华裔家庭的关注。
