  2. 重要通知:为增强交流,学校IT部门经多方努力重新做成了一个新的RACL电邮群 everyone@racl.org,根据当前现有学生的注册信息,把学校当前现有学生家长和老师的电邮地址自动纳入其中。只有学校少量工作人员能够发送电邮至此新的电邮群。以前的电邮群 racl@googlegroups.com (此电邮群不能自动包括学校当前现有学生家长和老师的电邮地址)会很快停止使用。志愿服务及工作人员若您不是当前现有学生家长,老师及个别岗位有RACL电邮的人员(registration@racl.org, academics@racl.org等),以及想加入RACL 电邮群的人员,请抓紧时间(两周之内)发电邮至vm@racl.org,主题栏(subject line)写明 “subscribe volunteers@racl.org”。IT 人员会将您加入 everyon@racl.org.

希望此次电邮群更新能提高学校与家长,老师以及志愿服务及工作人员的有效交流。若有问题或建议,请发电邮至system@racl.org

英文参见:In order to continuously improve communication within the school, the IT department has created a new email group with the address everyone@racl.org. All the active parents and teachers have been added to this list automatically based on our registration database. The list will be maintained by a nightly program to ensure it’s always up to date. Only a limited number of staff members will have permission to send emails to this address.

We are going to retire racl@googlegroups.com soon. For volunteers that are not active teachers, parents, or part of other staff member list (e.g. registration@racl.org, academics@racl.org), please email vm@racl.org with the subject line “subscribe volunteers@racl.org” to be added to the volunteers@racl.org group, which will be used by the nightly program to update everyon@racl.org. We hope this change will make our regular communication more efficient and effective. Please email system@racl.org if you have any questions or suggestions.

  1. 为学生安全,学校安排了大量人力,包括安全值日主管,安全值日联络人,安全值日家长,学校校友会的参与等。学校也有安全及学生纪律委员会 (Safety and Students Discipline Committee), 包括刘斌/Bing Liu, 谢德玉/Deyu Xie, 赵明/Ming Zhao, 兰华/Hua Lan, 陈曦/Steve Chen, 李冰/Bing Li。请家长和学生尊重他们的辛勤劳动;同时,请家长和学生注意不要把个人的一些因素带到学校来,学生安全第一!
  1. 学校同意“关于儿童与青少年(7-14岁)感恩的发展”研究项目组在我们学校征集家长和孩子参与研究。这周学校会把知情同意书发到各教室,请各位老师发给学生并请家长签字后收回(不管您及学生是否同意,只要将签好字的家长知情同意书返还给我们老师,项目组会给学校2美元的课堂活动经费)辛苦大家!

亲爱的家长:

你们好!

我的名字叫梁玥。我是一名人类发展与家庭研究专业的博士研究生,目前就读于the University of North Carolina at Greensboro。在Jonathan Tudge教授的带领下,我正在从事关于儿童与青少年感恩的发展的研究。这项研究也获得了John Templeton Foundation的支持。我们的项目组已经在美国(Greensboro,Atlanta,以及Boston),中国,巴西,俄罗斯,韩国以及土耳其开展研究。如果您同意您的孩子参与这项研究,我们将会问孩子四个关于他们如何表达对帮助他们实现他们最大的愿望的人的感激之情的问题。回答这些问题不会超过20分钟。Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language的校长及老师们认为这是一项很有意义的研究,所以同意让我们项目组在Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language征集家长及孩子参与研究。

为什么这项研究很有意义?学校不仅要教给孩子知识,同时也要培养孩子良好的品格。而感恩就是这些良好品格中重要的一个。近期的研究表明,经常表达感恩的孩子和青少年会有更高的幸福感,也与他们的父母、老师以及朋友有更好、更紧密的关系。感恩是中国文化中的重要一部分,中国有一句老话叫“滴水之恩当涌泉相报”。因为我们对于在美华裔的孩子是如何表达他们的感恩以及华裔父母是如何鼓励孩子表达感激之情非常感兴趣。这也是之前的研究没有涉及的问题。

我们非常感谢您对我们研究的支持!在孩子带回家的家长知情同意书里,您可以了解到更多的关于这个研究的信息。这项研究分为两个部分。您可以同意参加第一部分,或者参加第一以及第二部分,或者不同意参加这项研究。如果您同意参加第一部分研究,我们将会请您的孩子回答关于感恩的表达的四个问题以及填答两份关于感恩表达的问卷(在RACL放学之后)。这个过程不会超过20分钟。如果您同意参加第二部分,我们会根据您的方便的时间和地点,访谈您及您的孩子。

不管您是否同意参与我们的研究,如果您将签好字的家长知情同意书返还给老师,我们将会给学校2美元的课堂活动经费。如果您对我们的研究有任何问题,都可以通过下面的联系方式联系我及Jonathan Tudge教授。

非常感谢您的帮助!

梁玥

Dear parents,

My name is Yue Liang. I’m a doctoral student at the department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Under the supervision of Dr. Jonathan Tudge, I am currently researching the development of gratitude in children aged 7 to 14. This project is funded by John Templeton Foundation. We have been collecting data in the Guilford County schools in Greensboro, and schools in China, Brazil, Russia, South Korea, and Turkey. In our study, we will ask the children to complete several questionnaires regarding how they express their gratitude toward the person who grant them their wishes. It takes no more than 20 minutes to complete the questionnaires. Principal Zhang thinks that this is an interesting and important study, and has agreed that I can ask the children and their parents for permission to ask the children some questions about gratitude and materialist values at The Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language.

Why this study is important? Schools educate not only the mind, but also character. One important aspect of character is gratitude; children and adolescents who feel and express more gratitude for what they have and the help they’ve been given feel better about themselves and their benefactors, whether parents, teachers, friends, or strangers. Gratitude is deeply embedded in Chinese culture. One of the Chinese proverbs states “a drop of water shall be returned with a burst of spring” (滴水之恩, 当涌泉相报). So we are very interested in the development of gratitude among Chinese immigrant children and young adolescents, something that has never been studied.

We would really appreciate your help.  From the consent form that your child brings home, you will find more information about this study. You will see that there are two parts to the study. You can agree for your child to participate in either Part 1 or in Parts 1 and 2, or you can decline to give your consent.  Part 1 of the study (completed at the Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language after class) takes no more than 20 minutes.  In Part 2, if you agree, we would interview you and your child at home.

Whether you wish your child to participate or not, please return the form to your child’s teacher as we give $2 as classroom activity fee to the school (classroom) for each form that is returned! If you have any question and want to know more about the study, I’m happy to answer all your questions.

I’ll be most grateful for your help,

Yue Liang

  1. 5. RACL 3rd Annual Clothing/School Supply Drive for Greensboro DNHS (immigrant school). RACL issues receipt for tax deduction purpose if anyone needs.

Dear RACL Families,

My name is Christina Chen and I am the current president of the RACL Alumni Foundation, a club founded to provide student volunteers and serve RACL. This year, our club has taken over the responsibility of organizing our annual clothing/school supply drive to support the Greensboro Doris Henderson Newcomers School, a school for new immigrants and refugees. Please see below for the details:

Duration: 10/1/16 – 10/29/16

Time: 9:00am – 11:30am

Location:  Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language, at Apex Middle School, 400 E Moore St, Apex, NC 27502

To seek winter clothes and school supply donations to support DHNS(http://newcomers.gcsnc.com/pages/Doris_Henderson_Newcomers) students. DHNS is a special public school that provides one year of transitional education to refugee and new immigration students that newly settled in NC.  Many of those students and their families came to the US after survival from wars.  Some students are orphans. Due to lack of funding and the constant arrival of new students, this school constantly needs support from public channels. They especially need winter supplies and school supplies. RACL has been hosting this donation event since the fall of 2014.  From 2016 and going forward, this event will be organized by RACLAF and student volunteers.

Winter Clothes (used and in good condition, or new):

Any size winter cloth (jackets, pants, coats, scarf) & winter boots (or shoes) for girls, boys, women, men.  Blankets are also accepted.

School Supplies:

Backpacks, Spiral notebooks, Pocket folders, 1 inch binders, Filler paper for the binders, Pencils, Pencil sharpeners, Clorox cleaning wipes, Kleenex, Writing tablets (the kind used for preschool children who are learning to write), etc.

「绿堡新移民学校」简介:

由于世界灾难仍然不断,许多灾区的灾民,却为了躲避天灾或战乱, 被迫离开家园,而成 为难民,他们经过一段艰辛的日子,有的幸运的被他国所收容, 这些难民家长们,千辛万苦,逃离苦难,为的就是要寻求一个安定与自由的日子。

在美国有许多州都有专门收容难民的地方,例如北卡洛莱纳州, 就设在与我们相邻不远的绿堡市(Greensboro)与高点市(High Point),而附近有一所多丽丝.亨德森新移民学校(Doris Henderson Newcomers School (DHNS),以下简称「绿堡新移民学校」)http://newcomers.gcsnc.com/ pages/Doris_Henderson_ Newcomers 是专收刚抵美国的难民和新移民孩童,包含幼稚园到十二年级。

「绿堡新移民学校」学童大部份来自第三世界的贫困国家, 包括叙利亚、衣索比亚、苏丹、海地、保加利亚、坦尚尼亚、印度、尼泊尔、巴基斯坦、不丹、 寮国、缅甸 等,每年都有一批批新的孩童,随着家人躲避战乱逃离家乡, 幸运来到美国的小朋友来说,这是生平第一次有机会接受教育,也是人生新的转捩点。

由于学童的母语多非英语,学校将ESL(英语非母语) 的学习技巧,融入每个科目如数学、社会、科学、艺术等课程中,帮助学童加强英语能力、 认识美国文化,早日适应美国生活。学生一年之后必须转到正规学校就读,因此, 新移民学校每学年、甚至每个月都有新生入学。

「洛丽汉语学校」为「绿堡新移民学校」难民学童募冬装活动的由来

还记得前年(2014)的冬季,气温特别寒冷, 因此造成许多慈善机构(如救世军)提供的二手冬季外套库存不足,曾让该校社工安琪儿•卡多娜( Angel Katona) 为该校孩童提供冬季衣物,寻求无门。为此义工 Mr.李鎮湧 专门来到RACL 寻求帮助。当我们「洛丽汉语学校」全校师生与家长得知此事后, 立即在校园发起募集冬衣给「绿堡新移民学校」活动,

得到老师和家长们 都热烈响应,短短两个周六的上课时间, 就募集到了六百余件上好的冬衣和几十双靴子。这些来自「洛丽汉语学校」的爱心, 及时地温暖了该校三百多位学童。

去年秋季 (2015), RACL的师生员工再次为DHNS捐赠了一车的好衣服等物品, 并及时送去帮助该校的学生御寒。

2016寒冬又將來臨,我們「洛丽汉语学校」將再次發起為「 綠堡新移民學校」难民学童募冬衣活动,希望能再度聚合我們全體師生與家長的愛心, 再次一起來溫暖「綠堡新移民學校」的學童。从2016年起, 本活动以后由洛丽汉语学校校友会 RACLAF 负责筹办,以培养我们学生的爱心,奉献精神及组织能力。

親愛的「洛丽汉语学校」的教職員、家長們, 如果您府上若有不用的(狀況好的)二手的孩童穿的冬季衣物、與鞋子,歡迎大家在上課日帶來校園,我們將有 專人為您服務,並在收集與做整理後,盡快送到「綠堡新移民學校」,讓新移民學校 能早日有足夠冬衣,供給該校的新學童,讓這些學童能過一個溫暖的寒冬,讓我們一起來 發揮我們華人的愛心。

當然不限只是小朋友的衣服,鞋子也是很需要的。 另外若有大人的冬季衣服也可以,因為這些難民身份的家長,有許多還沒有找到工作,他們都是弱勢家庭, 所以若能募集大人的衣服的話,也可捐贈給這些家長,讓他們能安度寒冬。通常「 新移民學校」在獲得物資捐助時,都會寄上「感謝函」,跟捐助的社團或機構或人士致謝的。 該校收的學童從K至12年級都有,所以家長所捐的衣物大小,新舊都沒關係, 只要沒有破或拉鍊壞掉的就可以,

我們會再按size以及男孩女孩來做整理。

 

Thank you for your support, and we hope to have a successful donation drive!

  1. RACL continues to receive complains from Apex Middle School. Last week, a teacher found some of her papers misplaced; and one in particular had profanity written on it (photo was forwarded to RACL). It is definitely unacceptable and intolerable behavior! Would you please talk to your students and let them follow our school rules.  Please sit down and read the RACL Parent Code (http://www.racl.org/racl-parent-code/) and RACL Code of Student Conduct (http://www.racl.org/racl-code-of-student-conduct/) with your students.

To qualify for requesting Official Transcript, RACL recognizes the study (5th grade above) in other qualified schools, and accepts their scores with official transcript; Passing YCT exam is not required anymore.  The new Transcript Requesting Guide is being revised and Transcript Requesting System is being updated. Sorry for the inconvenience, the new System cannot function until next request period.

For now, you are able to request an official RACL transcript to transfer course credit to Wake County Schools following the original Guide. Detail of the requirements and steps can be found at http://www.racl.org/transcript-requesting-guide/. Your requests have to be received before 10/15/2016. Please be aware, your students have to be in High School to receive the credits. Any requests submitted before Sept 1, 2016 need to be resubmitted. Sorry about the inconvenience.

「绿堡新移民学校」简介:

由于世界灾难仍然不断,许多灾区的灾民,却为了躲避天灾或战乱, 被迫离开家园,而成 为难民,他们经过一段艰辛的日子,有的幸运的被他国所收容, 这些难民家长们,千辛万苦,逃离苦难,为的就是要寻求一个安定与自由的日子。

在美国有许多州都有专门收容难民的地方,例如北卡洛莱纳州, 就设在与我们相邻不远的绿堡市(Greensboro)与高点市(High Point),而附近有一所多丽丝.亨德森新移民学校(Doris Henderson Newcomers School (DHNS),以下简称「绿堡新移民学校」)http://newcomers.gcsnc.com/ pages/Doris_Henderson_ Newcomers 是专收刚抵美国的难民和新移民孩童,包含幼稚园到十二年级。

「绿堡新移民学校」学童大部份来自第三世界的贫困国家, 包括叙利亚、衣索比亚、苏丹、海地、保加利亚、坦尚尼亚、印度、尼泊尔、巴基斯坦、不丹、 寮国、缅甸 等,每年都有一批批新的孩童,随着家人躲避战乱逃离家乡, 幸运来到美国的小朋友来说,这是生平第一次有机会接受教育,也是人生新的转捩点。

由于学童的母语多非英语,学校将ESL(英语非母语) 的学习技巧,融入每个科目如数学、社会、科学、艺术等课程中,帮助学童加强英语能力、 认识美国文化,早日适应美国生活。学生一年之后必须转到正规学校就读,因此, 新移民学校每学年、甚至每个月都有新生入学。

「洛丽汉语学校」为「绿堡新移民学校」难民学童募冬装活动的由来

还记得前年(2014)的冬季,气温特别寒冷, 因此造成许多慈善机构(如救世军)提供的二手冬季外套库存不足,曾让该校社工安琪儿•卡多娜( Angel Katona) 为该校孩童提供冬季衣物,寻求无门。为此义工 Mr.李鎮湧 专门来到RACL 寻求帮助。当我们「洛丽汉语学校」全校师生与家长得知此事后, 立即在校园发起募集冬衣给「绿堡新移民学校」活动,

得到老师和家长们 都热烈响应,短短两个周六的上课时间, 就募集到了六百余件上好的冬衣和几十双靴子。这些来自「洛丽汉语学校」的爱心, 及时地温暖了该校三百多位学童。

去年秋季 (2015), RACL的师生员工再次为DHNS捐赠了一车的好衣服等物品, 并及时送去帮助该校的学生御寒。

2016寒冬又將來臨,我們「洛丽汉语学校」將再次發起為「 綠堡新移民學校」难民学童募冬衣活动,希望能再度聚合我們全體師生與家長的愛心, 再次一起來溫暖「綠堡新移民學校」的學童。从2016年起, 本活动以后由洛丽汉语学校校友会 RACLAF 负责筹办,以培养我们学生的爱心,奉献精神及组织能力。

親愛的「洛丽汉语学校」的教職員、家長們, 如果您府上若有不用的(狀況好的)二手的孩童穿的冬季衣物、與鞋子,歡迎大家在上課日帶來校園,我們將有 專人為您服務,並在收集與做整理後,盡快送到「綠堡新移民學校」,讓新移民學校 能早日有足夠冬衣,供給該校的新學童,讓這些學童能過一個溫暖的寒冬,讓我們一起來 發揮我們華人的愛心。

當然不限只是小朋友的衣服,鞋子也是很需要的。 另外若有大人的冬季衣服也可以,因為這些難民身份的家長,有許多還沒有找到工作,他們都是弱勢家庭, 所以若能募集大人的衣服的話,也可捐贈給這些家長,讓他們能安度寒冬。通常「 新移民學校」在獲得物資捐助時,都會寄上「感謝函」,跟捐助的社團或機構或人士致謝的。 該校收的學童從K至12年級都有,所以家長所捐的衣物大小,新舊都沒關係, 只要沒有破或拉鍊壞掉的就可以,

我們會再按size以及男孩女孩來做整理。

 

Thank you for your support, and we hope to have a successful donation drive!
