It's great to see all of you at CCLS. We had a successful and joyful first day of school! I saw so many returning and new students, teachers and parents enter the building and connected with old and new friends in high spirits. Thank you so much for having your children come prepared for this day and year of learning.
Dear CCLS Families & Friends,
Before proceeding to CCLS webpage http://www.ccls-usa.org/ for registration, please read carefully the following as there are some important changes:
1. The regular registration period is from 5/19 to 7/31, after the 7/31 deadline, the registration will be considered "late" and a late fee of $20 will be assessed. Your registration is not complete without payment. Your payment must be postmarked on or before the 7/31 deadline. A late registration not only incurs a late fee, because the school will be pre-ordering books for our registered students, there is also a risk that if you register late, your student may not have the necessary text books at the start of the semester. Please make sure that does not happen.

3. Based on the feedback/requests from some parents of lower grade Ma Liping classes, the school will offer Zhongwen for Grade 1 - 4 as well as Ma Liping Grade 1 - 4 provided there are enough students enrolled those classes.
Thank you all for your continued support!
We look forward to seeing all our returning students and new students in September!!

俗话说“单丝不成线，独木不成林“。我们学校能够从几家发展到如今的规模，不是几个人的努力，而是学校，家长，学生和老师齐心协力，群策群力的结果。所以，目前，校委会正紧锣密鼓地和老师们合作，从各班家长中物色人选组建CCLSPTO团队。成立后的家长会一定会使世纪作为学校更有凝聚力，作为社区更有吸引力。学校里的活动更加丰富多彩。泰戈尔说：“埋在地下的树根使树枝产生果实，却并不要求什么报酬。” 正是因你们这样的家长的无私奉献， 使我们中文学校这棵世纪之树，朝气蓬勃，枝繁叶茂。请允许我代表学校向未来的家长会成员先说一声“谢谢了”。

After a brief preparation period, the CCLS Bridge Club (桥牌俱乐部) is officially formed today (3/3/2013) and had its first meet during school hours at CCLS. The members played bridge from the beginning till the very end of the school hours - they were so focused on bridge, neither the financial planning seminar right next to us, nor the noises from the students during the recess distracted them from playing.
Going forward, CCLS Bridge Club will meet every school day during school hours (1:30 - 5:00pm on Sundays) in the cafeteria. We'll try to play duplicates (复式桥牌) whenever possible. We are also planning to organize bridge turnaments and to have friendly competition with neighboring Chinese school teams.We welcome more people to join us. Those of you who have interests in playing, and who want to learn, or simply want to see what playing bridge looks like, feel free to join us at our tables, the door is open to anyone. If there are enough interests, we will conduct seminars for beginning players.
