    Dear Grade 10 and 11 Parents,

    亲爱的10和11年级的家长们,

    As many of you know, we are holding our annual course selection day this coming Sunday, April 1st. We know that course selection is a very important and often stressful time for students and parents as there are many things to consider. Certainly as educators we understand that making decisions about one’s future is not always easy. However, we have done our utmost as a staff to ensure that this process is efficient and as stress-free as possible for both you and your children.

    在本周日(4月1日)举行我们的年度选课展。我们知道选课对于学生和家长来说是一个非常重要且有压力的时刻,因为有很多事情需要考虑。当然,作为教育工作者,我们知道做出关于未来的决定并不容易,我们尽最大努力确保这一过程对您和您的孩子都是有效率和无压力的。

    Last week we have trained our BC staff to help out with course selection by providing them with detailed information that they can pass on to you and your children while you are doing the actual selection.  This week, we have given all students in grades 10 and 11 presentations about course selection and mini presentations about the elective courses available to them.

    上周我们培训了学校全体加方全体教职员工,以帮助学生们更好地选择课程并提供详细的信息支持,他们可以在您进行实际选择时将这些信息传递给您和您的孩子。 本周,我们向10至11年级的所有学生介绍了有关选修课程的选择并进行了相关展示。

    On April 1st parents of grade 10 students going into grade 11 next year, the meeting will take place in the auditorium N101 at 9 am. For parents of grade 11 students going into grade 12 next year, the meeting will take place in the auditorium N101 at 1 pm. Following both of the information sessions, you will then go to your child’s homeroom and together start choosing courses.

    4月1日,10年级(下学年11年级)学生的家长,会议将于上午9点在N101多媒体教室举行。 11年级(下学年12年级)学生的家长,会议将于下午1点在N101多媒体教室举行。在两次家长会之后,您将会到您孩子的行政班教室,一起开始选择课程。

    In preparation for the meeting and course selection times, we would like to remind you of a few things.

    为了做好家长会和选课的准备,我们想提醒您几件事情。

    First, if you have not done so yet, please take the time to look over the course selection catalogue that has been posted on the school website. Here is the QR code to it.

    首先,请花一些时间查看已在学校网站上发布的课程选择目录。如果您还没有这样做,以下是网页链接,您可以扫描查阅。

    In it you will find a lot of information that will be helpful in generating conversations with your child about their future plans. Also, use it to better understand pathways and graduation requirements. Much of the information that is in the Course Catalogue will be presented to you on April 1st.

    在选课指南中,你会发现很多信息,这些信息将有助于与你的孩子就他们的未来计划进行对话。 此外,用它来更好地理解升学路径和毕业要求。课程目录中的大部分信息也将在4月1日共享给您。

    Second, please take the time to discuss education and career plans carefully with your son or daughter. We know that this can be a very difficult and sometimes divisive within a family as there can be competing can contradictory goals for parents and students. We have encouraged your children to talk with you and to be open to your concerns as parents. At the same time, we want to encourage parents to take the time to listen to your child’s dreams and goals. I have seen in the past where parents have forced their children to take certain courses that the child was not at all interested in. This caused significant anxiety for all in the end. Please take the time to develop an open dialogue about course choices. This will ultimately lead you to make similar and more important decisions about choices of university and careers in the next year or two. If you take the time now to start developing an open dialogue with your child, these future important decisions may be much easier to make for all.   

    其次,请花时间与你的儿子或女儿仔细讨论教育和职业规划。 我们知道这可能是一个非常困难,甚至有时会在家庭内发生意见冲突,因为父母和孩子可能会出现相互矛盾的观点。我们鼓励您的孩子与您对话,并得到您的关注。同时,我们鼓励家长花时间倾听孩子的梦想和目标。过去我曾经见过父母强迫他们的孩子参加一些孩子们不感兴趣的课程,最终导致了矛盾的产生。 因此花时间就课程选择进行交流非常重要。这将最终帮助您孩子在未来一两年内就大学和职业选择做出类似并更重要的决定。如果您现在花时间开始与您的孩子进行对话,那么这些未来的重要决定可能会更容易实现。

    One final request.  When you come on April 1st could you please send only 1 parent for each student to the auditorium. Our space is very limited and we only have enough for one parent from each family. After the presentation all parents and their children will then to go to their child’s homeroom to have time to make course selections.

    最后一个提示。4月1日家长会,由于学校空间有限,每个家庭请安排一位家长到阶梯教室参加家长会。会议结束后,所有的家长可以和孩子去到相应的行政班级中,并有充足的时间安排做出课程选择。

    Many hours have been spent by the Canadian teaching staff preparing for a very positive course selection experience. We look forward to seeing each one of you this coming Sunday.

    上海枫叶国际学校全体教职员工花了很多时间积极准备本次的选课展,期待周日您的光临。

     

     

     

    Cordially,

    敬启
