Dear Parents,
It has been a terrific first week with our Chinese teachers-in-residence, Mr. Mau and Nicole (her English name). They are here from our sister school, the Dali Experimental Elementary School, Foshan City, China. All Lippman students have participated in learning Kung Fu forms with Mr. Mau, and many of our students have learned about Chinese culture and arts from Nicole. By the end of next week, every class will have completed lessons with both of our teachers from China.
I want to invite you to meet our Chinese teachers and see what they have accomplished with our students. Next Friday, right after drop-off at 8:45 AM, we will hold an all school assembly in the atrium in which our students will demonstrate some element of what they have learned this week. I apologize that this only allows you a short time to make arrangements to attend. This first time teacher exchange and only one week of planning did not allow us to provide this experience until we spent time working and learning together with our Chinese partners. Their eagerness to show our community their work has inspired us to put this together on short notice. We will try to record the experience for those who are unable to attend.
Another opportunity for you to join us will be at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, February 7th for a Tai Chi experience and to learn more about Chinese culture and our educational partnership. This is free and open to the public with an RSVP to ccohen@thelippmanschool.org or by calling the school. This program is intended for adults.
It was great to see so many parents at our Winter Bash! We had record attendance and it was a great night.
Thank you Co-Chairs Hanna Lemerman, Jen Shkolnik and Nora Glaubermen and Bash Coordinator, Alisa Reinbolt!
Shabbat Shalom.
Have a great weekend,
Sam Chestnut
Head of School
