恒达彩票tas took part in the spirit of generosity this past monday during their annual flea market. during this market we saw students coming together in order to sell their products they have and made as a class in order to help others. the flea market does not only teach students business skills but generosity as well because all of the money raised will be donated to charity. students at tas recognize that their hard work and efforts were vital in raising money to help others.

our middle school students voted on which charity the funds would be donated to and they have decided to give to the shanghai healing home (shh). shh is a non-profit foster home assisting local chinese children’s welfare institutes by providing pre and post-surgical care to abandoned chinese orphan babies born with surgically correctable deformities. shh provides a home-like environment for the babies in order to meet their physical, emotional, and developmental needs. this year our students were able to raise 70,000 rmb for shh.  we are so proud of our students’ hard work which will changes babies lives forever!

how time flies! another map testing comes next week to see how much progress students have made during the past 3 months. american universities are putting increasing emphasis on map results because they can reflect student’s academic growth in different angles.

The organization is committed to taking in abandoned disabled babies and provides them with recovery operations based on the funds they get besides raising them. A G1 student wrote about TAS helping the abandoned babies emotionally when given the topic “Shanghai in my eyes” with the material of what we did last year.

qinaidejiazhangmen:dajiahao!

good day, dear parents,

guoqudeyizhoushanghaidouranjiangwen,ranerxiaoyuanlilaoshimen,haizimendexuexireqingbujianfanzeng!

the temperature has dropped dramatically this week, while the heat of passion in learning never fades! 

恒达彩票ziyue:“suihan,ranhouzhisongbozhihoudiaoye。” (《lunyu·zihandijiu》)shenqidedaziranmeiyijidouyoumeiyijideguangmangyumeihao,zairuixuezhongyunyuzhexindeshengming!zuishenqideshihaizimenshengmingdechengzhang,tamendelingxinghemeihaochangchangrangwozantan!youxiehaizituranjianxuexiqinfenle,youxiehaizituranjiandongdezijidezerenle,youxiehaizituranjiankaishiweitongxuemenzhudongfuwule。zaigengxinzheiyangyige”zhuiqiuzhenli,zhuiqiuzhuoyue,xianghuzunzhong,xianghuyingxiang,biciheyi,fuwushehui”dejiazhiguandemeirichongshuazhong,buzhibujuezhonghaizimenkaishishanshanfaguang,yishushudutedeguangmang,shifenmeimiao!

the confucius once said, “only in cold days can we realize the vitality of pines and cypresses.” (the analects of confucius, chapter zihan, verse 9) the magical nature nurtures its treasures of every season at the right time and even bears new lives in the freezing days! the most amazing thing in the world is the growth of children whose spirit and beauty surprise me from time to time. some of them cast themselves into studying all of a sudden, some get to know their responsibilities at a certain moment, and some start to serve others initiatively at some turning point which has never been expected. our students are shining out unconsciously after being soaked in the value of tas that we value truth, excellence, respect, impact, unification and society service. those are the lights which beautify the world.

zheigeyuedepingezhutishi”kangkai”。

恒达彩票the character theme this month is generosity.

恒达彩票students brought birthday cake for a g2 teacher last week. thank parents for your preparation and the expression of love! here’s a friendly reminder to all of you: it’s a bless for teachers to enjoy the birthday cakes brought by students, but please do not do that except the christmas december. thank you all!

a good school comes from great teachers! in the past week, our teachers observed and commented on each other’s classes and we had open classes almost every day. the teachers who gave open class were so well prepared. they collected teaching materials, arranged teaching activities, helped students to acquire new knowledge and cultivated their ability in thinking and expressing vividly and enlighteningly. after the classes, some teachers gave feedbacks to help them be better.

art is a fine way for people to show their spirits and emotions. true art can not only cultivate the taste but also develop the character. tas values the art education very much. we’ve mentioned the art education of lower grades before and now comes that of the higher ones.

恒达彩票students have learnt many skills in drawing and the use of comprehensive materials in the senior grades’ art classes. they have tried sandpaper painting, stippling, printmaking, butterfly-bone barter and continuous patterns. in the theme of africa, middle school students made african tribal masks, neck rings and lions which shows distinct african features. when it came to the christmas, middle school students made a lot of excellent handmade decorations. students’ taste and manipulative ability are trained during the learning process. besides, their interest in art elevates as well. we feel fulfilled every time we look at the art creations on the wall.

食品安全教育活动 Food Safety Education Event

 

更新学校一年级的同学们于11月27日前往宿予民宿参加了一堂别开生面的食育课程。他们先观看学习了水稻的生长,接着前往水稻田,近距离观察并参与了收割、晾晒、筛种、研磨米浆、糙米去壳。孩子们在对农业产生浓厚兴趣的同时感受到了耕作的辛劳,明白了食物的来之不易。这正契合我们学校所倡导的目标:培养具有国际化视野,传统文化根基的服务型领导者。

G1 students of TAS went to SUYU for a spectacular food education course on Nov. 27th. First, they watched and learned the growth of rice paddy. Then, they went to the field, observed and participated in collecting, sun-drying, filtrating, grinding, and shelling. The students understood the hard work of farming and the preciousness of food with the growth of their interest in agriculture. The activity really fit our goal: to cultivate servant leaders who are equipped with both international and traditional cultural experiences.

2018学年运动会 Sports Day 2018

上周五学生们参加了一年一度的运动会,全天进行了多项个人及团队比赛。一些孩子自发制作了鼓舞人心的标语为同伴加油鼓劲。我们为他们的拼搏与汗水,以及他们的体育精神感到无比骄傲!

This past Friday students took part in our annual Sports Day! Students competed in various individual and team events throughout the day . Some students even made signs for their fellow classmates in order to cheer them on. We could not be more proud of all of their efforts and sportsmanship!

精神文化周回顾 Spirit Week Recap

周四的英雄品格日和周五的传统服饰日为本学年的精神文化周画上了句点。孩子们用创意多彩的服饰装点自己,显得格外美丽动人。初中部也全程参与了文化周,他们这一整周课程的各种元素都围绕着以色列及美国文化。他们甚而在周五举行了一场演出来教授小学的学弟学妹们这两国的文化。在过去的这五天中我们见到了不胜枚举的学习方式,并希望这份学习的热情可以延续整个学年。

Last week we finished spirit week with character day on Thursday and Chinese traditional dress on Friday. Students looked beautiful as they let their creativity shine through their costumes. Along with Spirit Week the Middle school had been taking part in Culture Week. They spent the entire week learning about Israeli and American culture. The Middle school students even put on a play in order to teach the elementary students about American and Israeli culture. The entire week was filled with new fun ways to learn and we are looking forward to using this excitement throughout the entire year.

 

已经过去的这半周Spirit Week让学校充满了笑声!Excitement at TAS in the midst of Spirit Week!

我们师生同庆的主题文化周已经过半。周一大家都顶着狂野的发型度过了快乐的一天,周二穿着睡衣上学又给孩子们带来了无穷的欢乐!今天,学校里竟然出现了两只霸王龙迎接孩子们的到来!这是我们师生共同彰显TAS个性与荣耀的一周,我们也都期待着在这一周的末尾,也就是本周五,初中部的孩子们会为我们献上一场文化展示的盛宴!

We are midway through spirit week at TAS where students and staff have come together to celebrate Transformation Academy! On Monday everyone came with crazy hair. On Tuesday students and staff enjoyed the school day wearing pajamas! Today, on Wednesday, we had twin T-Rex’s welcoming students to school! It has been a great week as everyone joins together to proclaim their TAS pride! We are looking forward to capping off the week on Friday with a culture show presented by our Middle School students!
