New Semester

The 2017 Fall semester started on Aug. 20 and will end on Dec. 10. There are 15 weeks in this semester with no classes on the Labor Day (Sep. 3) and Thanksgiving (Nov. 26) weekends. Our classrooms are located in Mesa Community College's AS and SC Buildings near the south parking lot.

Important Dates

Parents, please mark your calendars for the following events to take part in your children's Chinese learning.

  • Oct. 15 Parent-Teacher Conference
  • Oct. 28 Fall Barbecue Picnic at Arrowhead Meadows Park in Chandler
  • Nov. 12 Reading Contest (5th graders and above)
  • Dec. 10 All-School Parents Conference

Also, be sure to check the Picture Day schedule to see when students in each grade are scheduled to have their individual pictures taken.

Registration Fee

***IMPORTANT: MCC has raised their registration fees as of 2017-2018. This is part of the fees we pay to MCC to use their facilities for our students. As a result, starting from Spring 2018 (next semester), we will also be raising our registration fee from $36 to $42 in order to address MCC’s increase in fees.

All School Parents’ Conference

Thanks to all the parents who attended our All School Parents’ Conference on Sep. 24. We hope this meeting helped familiarize you with our school's organization, status, and teaching goals.

Prize Card Days

Oct. 1 and Oct. 22 are Prize Card Days. Please remind your children to bring their prize cards to school.

Fall BBQ

The Fall BBQ is coming! Don't forget to mark your calendars for Oct. 28, 11:00am-3:00pm, at Arrowhead Meadows Park. We will start selling the tickets on Oct. 15 at the office, Room 11E. Ticket will be $5 for adults and $3 for children.
