校長的話 Principal's Message 9/8/2018 洪篤彥 Andrew Hung

夏天結束了,我希望每個人都有機會輕鬆心情。
我歡迎大家回來博愛,特別是今年的新同學和家庭。 博愛仍然是北加州地區最大的中文學校之一。 所有這一切都歸功於我們經驗豐富的老師,熱心義工和家長的幫忙。我們可以共同努力克服任何問題。
博愛的創校宗旨不僅是為我們的孩子提供學習中國語言和文化的機會,還可以增強孩子對其他文化的理解。 這是非常重要,因為我們的孩子在全球社區中成長,並將與許多其他文化互動。 只有理解,我們的孩子才會對其他社會產生寬容和尊重。
博愛是一個非謀利的合作教育機構。 我們依靠義工和家長的人力來管理我們的學校。博愛要您的幫助才能繼續成功。我歡迎幾位新成員加入我們的團隊, 副主任(國語)曾泰原、副主任(國語) 陳莉君、副主任(粵語) 梅相燕、副主任(粵語)鄭宇志、副主任(CFL班) 丁俊、副主任(文化) 林玟伶、副主任(人事) 金惠嫻、副主任(註冊) 蘇靜賢、信息技術許創思。
我們還有幾個空缺職位,校園經理(Morrill) ,副主任(財務) 和替代教師(所有部門)。 如果您有興趣,請發送電子郵件至 bcs_board@yahoo.com 或聯繫我們任何一位董事會成員。

Summer is over, I hope everyone had a chance to relax and refresh their mind and body.
I welcome all of you back to 博愛, especially our new students and their family.  博愛 remains one of the largest Chinese school serving the Northern California area.  All of this due to in part to the tireless effort of our highly experienced teachers, enthusiastic staffs and parent helpers.  We can overcome any problem by working together as a team.
博愛’s mission is not only to provide an opportunity for our children to learn the Chinese language and culture but also enhance our children understanding of other cultures.  This is very important since our children are growing up in a global community and will be interacting with many other cultures. Only with understanding can our children develop tolerance and respect toward others.
博愛 is a non-profit co-op education organization.  We rely on the manpower of volunteers and parent helpers to manage and operate our school.  I like to welcome several new faces to our team: Mandarin Associate Dean Tevin Tseng, Mandarin Associate Dean Lydia Chen, Cantonese Associate Dean Candy Kwan, Cantonese Associate Dean U Chi Chiang, CFL Associate Dean Tuan Dinh, Culture Associate Dean Teresa Lin, HR Associate Dean Fiona Chin, Registration Associate Dean Janet Soo and IT Support William Hui.
BCS need your help to continue our success, we have several open positions including Campus Manager (Morrill), Financial Associate Dean, and substitute teachers.  If you are interested, please contact us by email to bcs_board@yahoo.com or talk with any board member.
