Dear Parents/Guardians/Teachers:

This Sunday, 9/30, is Picture Day.  Each class will take a class picture for our school directory, which will be given to all families later this year.

As a reminder, language class is 2:30-4:15, with a 5 minute break in between.  Culture class is 4:20-5:00. Particularly for new and younger students, it is helpful if parents can walk their children from language class to culture class at 4:15.  Also, if your child needs to leave school during the class, please inform the teacher or TA.

The classroom reassignment is finalized and is the same as last week.   We will post class info on each classroom door and in the cafeteria if you need to double check.   

Messages from the Academic Director, Molly Yang:

We are seeking Chinese language instructors who can help the next generation learn Chinese.  The teacher training and materials will be provided. As our school is growing, we also need more teachers to ensure the good quality of teaching.  If you are interested in teaching or being a substitute teacher, please email  We really appreciate your consideration.

Messages from the Culture Director, Ya-ping Su:

I hope all children are settled and happy with their culture class selection by now. This year, we have 17 culture class offerings that range from mental activities such as Abacus and Chinese Chess to more hands on physical activities like Yo-Yo, basketball, Yoga and dance.  As we look and plan ahead for the future, Parents, we need your help!

PCLS plans to establish a lion dance team and is looking for parents who are willing to learn and/or willing to coach the team. Of course, if you already have experience, that would be an added bonus. We are also looking for parents who are interested in offering a culture class or have ideas on culture class offerings. Is anyone interested?  If so, please email the culture director (

Messages from Princeton Day School:

Thank you for all your cooperation on the following PDS parking regulations and the food/drink policies.  Please remember: food may be consumed ONLY in the Campus Center (cafeteria) so that spills are confined to the tile floor in the Cafeteria.  PDS has two renovated areas and they are quite strict about this policy. NO drinking or eating in the CLASSROOMS or HALLWAYS.

Lost and found

If your child leaves his/her stuff in a classroom, please check the classroom or ask the teachers FIRST.  If the teachers cannot take the lost item home, he or she will leave the lost item on the Academic/Culture Directors’ table.  You might want to stop by the cafeteria before leaving school. Please let the principal know if you have ALREADY tried the above and need further help.  Then we can visit PDS’s lost and found.
