Hello Parents,

I wanted to give you some information about this upcoming Olympic Day event happening on our campus on Friday, February 10th. As a school, we value providing a well-rounded education for your students. We strive to use athletics and sports to build character and teamwork as well as encourage a healthy balanced lifestyle. Olympic Day is one venue in which we can take some time to do this. This event is open to Morrison family and friends. Parents are encouraged to come cheer for their kids! 

Students will have their Team meeting on Tuesday, Jan 31st after school from 3:20pm – 4:20pm to sign up for their events. (Elementary: If your child does not have ASA, their team leader will sign them up for events. But I would recommend all the students to be at the team meeting.) 

This is an event that involves many staff and students. The participating athletes are K-8th grade, and each student is assigned to a multigrade team (Country). Students will be competing in various track and field events they have been practicing in their PE classes against other MAK students of their grade and gender. This is meant to be a fun day filled with healthy competition. 

It is a full day, so here are a few suggestions of what to have your child bring:

  • Water bottle
  • Athletic clothing (Shoes, shorts, shirts) 
  • Sun Screen
  • Hat (optional)
  • Money for snacks and drinks other than water. 

Parents/Spectators planning to attend:

  • Cannot show or experience any symptoms of an illness. 
  • Please park outside of campus on Jiacheng Road. 
  • Will receive a visitor’s sticker at the front gate before entering campus. 
  • Will stay on the Athletic Fields and MPR, but not EMS or HS hallways (HS Classes will still be in session)

Lunches will be provided for those on the school plan. Lunch and snacks will also be sold on campus by Highschoolers. Please keep food in the MPR and Outdoor Courtyard. 

Attendance will be taken as usual in the morning.  The school will end as normal at 3:15 with buses departing at 3:25pm.  If your child normally takes the bus home and you plan on driving your child home instead, please inform the front office.

Here is the Schedule for Olympic Day

Blessings,

Paul Liao / 廖保羅 

親愛的家長,

我想為您提供關於 2 月 10 日星期五在我們校園舉行的奧林匹克運動會日活動的信息。我們重視為您的學生提供全面的教育。我們努力通過體育運動來培養品格和團隊合作精神,並鼓勵健康平衡的生活方式。

奧林匹克運動會是我們可以花一些時間做這件事的地方。該活動對馬禮遜的家人和朋友開放。鼓勵家長來為孩子加油!

學生將在 1 月 31 日星期二放學後的下午 3:20 至 4:20 舉行團隊會議,以報名參加他們的活動。 

(小學部:如果您的孩子沒有 ASA,他們的團隊負責人會為他們報名參加活動。但我建議所有學生都參加團隊會議。)

這是一個涉及許多教職員工和學生的活動。參賽運動員為 K-8 年級,每個學生被分配到一個多年級團隊(國家)。學生將參加他們在體育課上練習過的各種田徑項目,與同年級和性別的其他 MAK 學生競爭。這注定是充滿良性競爭的有趣一天。

奧林匹克運動會是很滿的一天,所以這裡有一些關於讓您的孩子要帶的東西:

  • 水壺
  • 運動服裝(鞋、短褲、襯衫)
  • 防曬霜 
  • 帽子(可選)
  • 除了水以外的零食和飲料的錢。

計劃參加的家長/觀眾:

  • 無法顯示或體驗任何疾病症狀。
  • 請將車停在校外的嘉城路上。
  • 進入校園前將在前門收到訪客貼紙。
  • 將留在運動場和 MPR,但不會留在 EMS 或 HS 走廊(HS 課程仍將繼續)

有定學校中餐的學生中餐還是會提供。高中生也將在校園內出售午餐 ( 漢堡,披薩,…)和小吃。請將食物存放在 MPR 和室外庭院。

上午照常出勤。學校將在下午 3:15 正常放學,巴士將於下午 3:25 發車。如果您的孩子通常乘坐巴士回家,而您打算開車送孩子回家,請通知辦公室。

這是奧林匹克運動會的時間表 Schedule for Olympic Day

Dear Parents:

As university applications become more and more competitive, a student’s activities have increased in importance.  Come join this session as I teach on what makes a strong activity, how can parents support their students activities, how activities are structured at MAK.  Summers are also important in a high school student’s career and with travel resuming students have a variety of opportunities available to them.   I will present on different options for summers and how to use summers to benefit your students’ growth and applications. 

The session will be on Feb 2 at 2pm-3pm in the Band room.  Please RSVP by emailing matt.newkirk@ma.org.tw
