The Chinese school internal speech, recitation and story telling contests will be held on 3/24 and 4/14. The registration will end on 3/17 and please register through your teacher. Please prepare in advance. The rules and judge standards will be similar to the past years. However, we expect to have minor change and will send the final version when it is available. The rules from the past years are provided in the following links. Your cooperation will be appreciated. Speech contest will be held in the Multi-purpose room and recitation in the library. Story-telling contest will be held in the Multi-purpose room. Speech and Recitation will take place at the same time so each student can choose only one of them. Story-telling has no time conflict so students can participate Story-telling even if they have registered for Speech or Recitation.
I hope you enjoyed the summer break and are looking forward to the new school year. This email includes revised parking and classroom information.
As a reminder, compliance to the parking rules in this area is reinforced by Ann Arbor Police and towing companies. Parking violators could receive ticket from the police or could be towed without notice. If a vehicle is towed, the owner will have to pay around $200 (towing, storage, and misc. fees) to retrieve the vehicle. So, it’s important to understand and follow the parking rules.
Attached is an aerial photo of King Elementary School, showing the parking arrangements. The areas that need attention are:
No Parking areas are highlighted by red lines. This includes both sides of the circular drive in front of school main entrance, entire west side of Waldenwood Dr., and east side of Waldenwood Dr. in front of the school. Also, no Chinese school parking in the three cul-de-sac to the west of the school.
Parking areas are highlighted by green lines. This includes the school parking lot, east side of Waldenwood Dr. (except for the area in from of the school), and neighboring side streets.
Also attached is a copy of the classroom arrangement. Please note that some classes are using different classrooms this year.
I hope this email clarifies the parking arrangement and class locations. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
