A Fine Year Finishes!

A Fine Year Finishes!It is amazing to me that summer holidays are right around the corner.  The 2010-2011 school year has flown by, our 19 seniors have graduated, ECLC2 children are ready for Kindergarten, our fifth graders are ready to move on to middle school and our eighth graders to high school while everyone else moves upward and forward.

There are many great events that will mark this year as noteworthy.  Learning Comes Alive in ECLC, Elementary School and at Bayside saw a significant number of parents experiencing the learning environments that their children share daily. There was China Night and stage and musical events that will provide lasting memories for the students who joined in and sporting events here and across China with a record level of participation and success.

We have learned much as a school this year and spent much time thinking and planning for the future.  Work will be done over the summer to resurface our playing field, track and basketball court at Jingshan so that they’ll serve our athletic needs for a long time.  Other improvement efforts will focus on continuing to expand our IT infrastructure.

We are excited about the promise of the coming school year.  And we are excited about the summer holiday.  So  to everyone, safe and healthy travels and to those of you who are moving on, please keep in touch!
