Newsletter: August 27, 2021, School updates, enrollment for Taiwanese Conversation Class(台語課) and Adult class

As summer comes to an end and we are busy preparing for the new school year, I would like to provide a few updates to keep you in the loop of the current happenings.

  • Prior to Saturday, 9/11 – textbooks will be distributed through class parents, teachers and specific admin staff. Be on the lookout for an email to pick up the textbook packets.
  • September 12, 19, 26 and October 3: All language and culture classes will be conducted virtually
  • First day back in person is Oct 10.

We have received a few parents’ input regarding an online option instead of coming back to PDS. Our academic director is assessing the possibility, reaching out to teachers and contacting parents as necessary. However, most the class has 1 or 2 students wanting online option. So online ONY option for a specific grade is unlikely at the point.
