首先, 感謝博愛的資訊和網路團隊, 今年學校的一個重要方針就是將學校的活動和相關資訊，盡量透過網際網路及時的傳遞給所有的老師、家長和同學們。 同時,學校也希望透過相關網站和課餘的時間，提供大家有用的訓練和學習教材及影片。最後，學校任何親子、文藝和學術競賽活動的一些相關資訊、照片及錄影也將會登錄於學校網站上。
First of all, BCS would like to recognize the contribution of our IT team in which they have been putting hundreds of hours to move everything to digital. With the intent to go digital, BCS is continuing revamping our website and putting related information and updating our posting frequently. You will see BCS’ activities photos, cultural and academic info as well as some teachers’ helpful material online.
On the other side, BCS still needs to have more parents’ help and involvement including class representatives, class liaisons, campus patrols, parent representatives, board members, etc. If you are interested in teaching, BCS would also like to work with you to setup some trainings and discussions.
Here is the question of the week? In your kids’ growing period, which institution will accompany you and your family to spend ten over years of weekend together? Let’s start with a pleasant weekend together this school year.

上個禮拜六,博愛又成功地舉辦的一年一度的嘉年華會。學校非常感謝活動組、各位委員、老師和家長的幫忙, 加上太陽公公做美, 不但陽光普照、而又秋高氣爽。一大早，大家就開始架設帳蓬、安排攤位、設置桌椅等等,加上井然有序的停車規劃, 使得一切活動的安排都非常的順利。
再繼續上周的話題,現在是屬於資訊爆炸的時代，Twitter, Skype, Facebook, and free APP 到處都是。手提電腦、平板電腦和智慧型手機更是隨處可得。但是，這些都無法取代父母親在日常生活中不厭其煩的提攜和叮嚀，所以同學們無論在生活上、學業上甚至感情上有任何的困難都要說出來和父母親多溝通。
Last Saturday was a great day for our BCS carnival. We specially thank the activity team, other board members, teachers, and parents in making this event such a success. The weather was perfect – sunny and breezy. First thing that morning, many hands were setting up tents, booths, chairs, traffic signs, etc. All preparations went smoothly and seamlessly!
Not only were there a variety of food, there was also the Kids’ Halloween Costume parade contest. The whole ambience was full of exciting sounds and cheerful laughter. Cameras were all standing by to catch those Kodak moments. The last highlight of the annual carnival has always been the “Tug of War” contest between students and their opponents comprising of BCS team, VIPs, and teachers. My, oh my…it was such a close game! Everyone had exerted their strength and voices. At the end, students won the contest with great teamwork, but BCS board vowed to come back stronger next year.
Continuing last week’s discussion of our current state of economy and life, all kinds of information and news are disseminated in real time. Ubiquitous social media and communication apps like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, etc. are readily available and pre-installed in all different kinds of machines and gadgets. However, these machines can never replace our parents. Our parents will always be there to give us the best advice. No matter how hard it gets, make sure we learn how to communicate with our parents.
Winter is just around the corner. Temperature differences are most obvious in the early hours of mornings and late at night. With the onset of flu season, please listen to our parents’ reminder – don’t forget to bring your jacket or wear an extra layer of clothing.

首先，感謝龍瑞蘭老師、劉淑珍、各項學術比賽老師團隊和義工家長、委員們的幫忙，經過了幾個月的籌備和努力，很快的又到了校內學術比賽報名的時候了，今年博愛不單有校內的學術比賽, 我們也將承辦2013/14學年北加州學術比賽的任務。在此, 我們要鼓勵所有的同學來參加校內的學術比賽，說不定你也將代表學校參加更大型的比賽哦！
另外，今天是博愛第三十三週年的園遊會，亦如往年一樣，各國美食攤位、表演節目、遊戲活動和萬聖節遊行都將是此活動的重點項目。請大家告訴大家，千萬不要錯過這一次的親子遊樂活動，也記得在享用美食和遊戲活動之餘，來為博愛足球隊的各組小朋友們加油打氣，今年中文學校的校際足球聯賽，將於今天下午兩點開始在Sierramont campus 的足球場開打。
First of all, a special thank-you to the guidance and assistance of Ms. Lung (Mandarin teacher), Jen Liu, various academic competition teams, a few key parents and our board members. After several months of preparation, it is time to register for the Berryessa Chinese School Internal Academic Competition (AC). Aside from holding our Internal AC in January 2014, we will also be hosting the Association of Northern California Chinese Schools Academic Competition (ANCCS AC) on April 06, 2014. We would like to encourage all the students to participate in the January event with the hopes to represent our school when competing at the ANCCS AC.
Secondly, BCS’s 33rd year of the annual fall carnival will take place today. Like past carnivals, we have a variety of gourmet food as well as music, games, and performances. The Halloween costume parade is one of the highlights. Please tell your family and friends to join us. The event starts at 11:30 am and it will be followed by soccer games between Berryessa Chinese School and San Jose Chinese School on the Sierramont School field.
Lastly, the world is getting to be so competitive that each one of us needs to work hard and stay focused in our daily lives. At the same time, our family and kids are bombarded by all kinds of media news and influences. As parents, we need to instill in our kids and ourselves with traditional values, culture, music, and sports activities. I believe it is only through a well-rounded curriculum and extra-curricular activities that we can help our children to become team players and leaders at the same time.
