Welcome back to BCS school year 2020-2021. Our staff and teachers are ready to welcome you back to our 41st year. We had been working very hard over the summer to prepare to provide distance learning.
BCS is a non-profit organization and we are thankful, especially for our enthusiastic parent volunteers and hardworking teachers. Without their contributions, BCS would not have had such esteemed reputation. Currently, BCS is one of the largest Chinese Schools in the United States.
On behalf of BCS, I warmly welcome you all back and those who have just joined the BCS family this school year. Thanks for your trust and your support! We will continue to do our best and to be the best for you and your children.
For this school year (2020-2021), the first day of school is on September 12th (Saturday). I hope we are all ready to accept new challenges. We can do it together!
This school year, BCS has made some changes and hope to have your full support and cooperation. The enclosed package includes important information from registration and curriculum departments. Please read them carefully before school starts. You can visit our web site at www.bcs-usa.org for more information. If you have any question, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing all of you a pleasant and successful school year!

Our friends at the Bay Area Chinese Genealogy Group (BACGG), the Chinese Historical and Cultural Project (CHCP), and the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) are hosting an exciting webinar on August 29th, Operation: WWII Chinese American G.I.. This is a unique discussion illustrated by demonstrations from the largest collection of Chinese American military memorabilia. Please register below.
More than 20,000 Chinese Americans served this country in World War II. This is an important part of American history!
Best wishes, Chinese American Museum DC
This webinar is recognized by the Department of Defense, as a Commemorative Partner, as it celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the end of WWII. The webinar precedes a September ceremony that will honor Chinese American WWII Veterans. Further information on the September ceremony is forthcoming.
Operation: WWII Chinese American G.I.will not just explore dates and places significant to Chinese American World War II history, but also but explore the war through the lens of the world’s largest private collection of Chinese American, and military memorabilia. Additionally, a clip from the film We Served with Pride, will be shown. This film features 15 Chinese American WWII Veterans who served with uncommon valor, as a common virtue.
The keynote speaker is Montgomery Hom, the Executive Producer for the California Ceremony, an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, author, and military historian. He will be joined by Major General William S. Chen, the first Chinese-American to wear a 2-star rank in the U.S. Army, and Connie Young Yu, Trustee Emeritus Board Member of the Chinese Historical Society of America.
