Dear SDHXCS families,

Time flies. This is the last weekly news of the school year 2019-20, we’d thank all our teachers, staff, and parents being so patient in this special 2020 while the school was adjusting to provide the routine class schedule under the pandemic. Everyone did an awesome job!

Some of you may already know that I am about to finish my two-year Principal term. In the last board meeting, I was re-elected to be the Principal for another two-year term. I will continue working with everyone and invite you to join our office team if you are interested to work with me and willing to spend time helping the school. My email is  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

For the next school year, We are looking for enrichment teachers who can bring some fun topics to our students. If you are or you know someone is interested, please feel free to email me and Jenny at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We will start to review the enrichment program in June.

For the service deposits that haven’t been refunded due to COVID-19, the office will schedule a time to do so after we return to campus.

Here are the notes for this week:

  • Due to the pandemic, we won’t be able to host the teacher appreciation banquet as usual. Instead, we will be hosting an online teacher appreciation conference(云谢师大会)on 5/24 at 2:30 pm. Due to online event seating limitations, only the teachers and classroom parent representatives (one per class) are invited to attend. We will have raffle time, so please let your teacher know that you will attend and add in your name and classroom information in below google sheet. The zoom invitation will be sent by 5/20. Please obtain the details from your teacher.
  • One of SDHXCS graduates designed a website together with her high school friends to provide a platform for tons of free study resources for the elementary students. I haven’t had a chance to explore the website, but it sounds a pretty handy website during this pandemic. If you are interested and want to take advantage of the sorted information, please refer to her letter as attached.

Because of the COVID-19, this summer staycation will be challenging for all of us. To help relieve the difficulty, SDHXCS is considering to host virtual summer camps (Chinese and Enrichment classes) 网上夏令营. The detailed summer camp plan will be announced in early June using WeChat. If you are interested and would like to know the details, please join one of SDHXCS parent WeChat groups or follow SDHXCS WeChat Official Account (华夏公众号 SDHXCS).


Take care and wish you all stay safe and healthy through the pandemic! Hope to see you soon in the fall!


Yi Cai

Principal, SDHXCS
