Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am writing this email to inform you that Morrison Academy will have a half day tomorrow on Thursday, September 28th, 2023, for teachers’ professional learning. The school will be dismissed at 11:30 AM, with the school buses leaving at 11:45 AM. There will be no lunch during this half day. This is a system-wide Professional Learning day for all teachers to meet, receive training, and learn from each other.
Due to the half day falling on a Thursday, MAK will NOT have a late start. Instead, classes will start at 8:00 am. The school bus schedule will be adjusted to ensure students are on time for the 8:00 am class start time. Thank you for understanding and making the adjustments to this change.
高雄馬禮遜美國學校將於 2023 年 9 月 28 日（星期四）下半天的時間進行教師專業教育培訓。因此，學校當天將於上午11:30 放學，而校車於上午 11:45 出發。學校當天將不會提供中餐。這是全體馬禮遜學校系統的專業教育培訓日，讓所有教師會集、接受培訓，並互相觀摩、學習。
由於星期四只有半天的上課時間，校方決定將當天上課時間調整到上午 8:00 開始，不會延遲開始。校車接送時刻表也將進行調整，以確保學生可以準時到校。
Q1 Parent Teacher Conference 第一季親師座談會
The Quarter 1 Parent Teacher Conferences will be held in-person on Friday, October 20, 2023.
Once again, we are providing online sign-up forms so each of you can sign up for a time slot most convenient for you to speak to teachers.
These appointments are entirely voluntary. If parents do not feel the need to speak to a teacher, there is no obligation to make an appointment. Sign-ups will be available & emailed to parents on Wednesday, October 4 at 8:00am, and will be closed at 8:00am on Wednesday, October 18.
Babysitting will NOT be provided. If students choose to come, they must be with parents at all times. At the end of the scheduled conferences, parents may visit the MPR to view the Art Exhibition.
Since we have limited Chinese speaking staff, parents are encouraged to bring their own translators for the conferences, or contact email@example.com to schedule a student translator.
Did you know we have an instagram page? Follow us to see what students life is like here at MAK!
Just a reminder that tomorrow is a Christian Service Learning (CSL) 1/2 Day with no delayed start. Our school day will start at 8 am. No backpacks are needed; just bring your water bottle with you. When you arrive, please meet in these rooms for attendance:
6th Grade – MS1
7th Grade – MS2
8th Grade – MS3
This is a service learning trip, which means we will be going to Meinong Elementary School to serve the students! You will be paired up with a student from that school and that will be your buddy for the whole morning. Please get to know your buddy during this time! In later years we will go back to this same school and so it’ll be fun for you to return and see your old buddies!
Also, although these days are fun off-campus days, all school policies and procedures apply. This means no cell phones during the bus ride and our dress code still applies. In addition to our school dress code, please no skirts, opened-toed shoes, or Crocs.
We will return to MAK before the end of the 1/2 day at 11:30. Buses will be dismissed at 11:45. Then go enjoy your Moon Festival Mini-Break!
