I would like to sincerely thank all the families and staff of Chiao Hsin for their enthusiastic support in preparing and attending our Open House this past weekend. Open House is one of the most important events of the year for Chiao Hsin; it is simultaneously an opportunity to welcome the outside community to Chiao Hsin, register new students for the upcoming school year, and fundraise to support the school. The event is a lot of fun, but it is also a lot of hard work. It would not have been possible without your help.
The funds raised from the Open House garage sale, snack sales, and games go directly towards making Chiao Hsin a better place for your children. Last year, funds raised from Open House helped remodel the bathrooms here at Chiao Hsin. In the past, these funds have replaced student desks, upgraded technological equipment, and made repairs and renovations at the Chiao Hsin campus. Thank you for your generous donations to the Garage Sale, and to all the parents who volunteered before and throughout the event.
Many times during the Open House, I tried to estimate how many people were in attendance. There were so many, I found it difficult to even try to count. The number seemed to be almost double last year’s attendance. Thank you to everyone who attended and especially to those who invited family and friends to attend. Our success is because of your support.
As a reminder: If your child is planning to attend Summer Session at Chiao Hsin this year, please stop by the office as soon as possible to fill out a registration form. We use these forms to determine the sizes of classes and to make preparations for our summer program.
Wei-Mei Wang, Principal
