Dear Parents and Families of Joy International School :
As we come to the end of the school year, we are grateful for your participation and support in the lives and education of your children. In many ways this spring semester has been full of challenges and surprises that were outside of our control. Despite this, we have stayed true to our values and have continued to make progress towards providing a meaningful, joyful education for our students.
From the whole community, we wish that you will have a meaningful and joyful summer when your children return home to you. We hope that you remember that the most important teachers in a child’s life is their mother and father. Every activity and communication you share is a chance to guide your child and help them develop their inner personality. We encourage you to be mindful of the ways that you can nurture your children especially during these special summer hours.
We also encourage you to pay attention to safety. In the summer, there is inevitably more freedom for children. It is very important to pay close attention to children especially around bodies of water, vehicles, and other dangerous situations. We want to relay a public reminder to be safe and aware as you try to balance work, play, and life during the next two months. 我们也希望您注意安全。
As a parent, one of the most important activities you can do with your child is to sit with them and read books with them. As you are reading, it is good to ask the child questions, listen to their responses, and acknowledge their thoughts and feelings. This is the way to develop a healthy child who will have the internal motivation to succeed as they grow older.
We look forward to seeing you in the next Fall semester and continuing on this journey towards meaningful education and community development. 我们期待着在下一个秋季学期见到您和您的孩子，并将继续这趟有意义的教育之旅，使嘉洋这个温暖的社区能得以持续的发展！
