2. Zhong-Zi Fund Raising ( 粽子 )

First of all, I'd like to thank you all to support the NCKUAA-MI zhong-zi fund raising event.
Due to the popular order of the zhong-zi, the NCKUAA-MI has reached its fund raising goal. Therefore, we have to stop the order process earlier.

Because the amount of the order from Ann Arbor and to convenient the delivery process, NCKUAA-MI board has decided to have one of the zhong-zi making session in Ann Arbor.  We have invited a zhong-zi-making master in Ann Arbor. As the suggestion of the zhong-zi master, the content of the salty kind will be changed slightly, it will have marinated pork, black mushroom, and peanuts (there will be several orders which have no peanuts). If you changed your mind and want to drop the order due to the content change, I will understand. Please contact me at 734-678-2173 by 11:00 pm on May 23, 2011 .

All the Zhong-Zi will be ready on Friday 27, 2011 . I will be in multi-purpose room for pick up. Again, on behalf of NCKUAA-MI, I'd like to thank you for supporting our fund raising event.

Community Activities

 

1. Interpreter Needed

Some 200 kindergarten children and their families in the Ann Arbor area have been randomly selected to take part in an important study sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics, a division of the Department of Education. It is called The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-2011 (ECLS-K: 2011). My role in this study is to collect data from both the selected parents and their children. Please refer to the attached brochure which contains the specifics about the study.

We have several selected parents to interview whose native language is something other than English and they would be much more comfortable conducting the interview in their native language. At this time, I have 3 Chinese, 2 Korean and 1 Japanese family(s) who would like to fully participate in the study, if we can locate capable interpreters.

Each interview will take about 90 minutes, depending on the respondent's answers. Generally, the interviews are conducted over the phone and we can arrange to have a conference call if that is most convenient. Otherwise, the parent, interpreter and interviewer (myself) can meet at an arranged public place like a school or library.

The interpreter will have to sign and have notarized an affidavit of non-disclosure (form attached to this email) and will be compensated in cash for their time. Because this is a long-term study, they will have an opportunity to assist us annually for the extent of the study, approximately 5 more years.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance you may offer in the form of recommendations for capable adult interpreters.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Patricia Mazzola
