Shuang Wen School/01M184 is excited to share with you…
Dear Shuang Wen Families,親愛的雙文家庭：
We will have our Third Scholastic Book Fair in Room 309 from Wednesday, February 8 to Wednesday, February 15, with additional days and times specifically for the Teachers’ Preview and the SWS Family Book Shopping Event (see a schedule of events below). 第三屆雙文學校書展將於二月八日(星期三)至二月十五日(星期三)在309 教室舉行，我們另外安排了教師預覽及家庭參展時間(請見下方時間表)。
The book fair will be a great way to encourage our children’s interest in reading and to support our school. Consistent with Scholastic's incentive policy, a percentage of the proceeds from book sales may be used to enhance our school and classroom libraries and to enhance our children’s literacy and learning.書展是鼓勵孩子們對閱讀產生興趣，並能支持學校的最佳方式。根據學者圖書公司的策略，圖書銷售所得的一部分會用於改善我們的學校和教室圖書館，增強孩子們的學習。
There will be a wide selection of age appropriate titles. Please provide your child with some cash to make purchases. Scholastic informs us that many books will cost between $6.00 and $10.00 (excluding tax). Please note that the book purchases are taxable (applicable tax rate: 8.875%). We encourage you to talk to your children regarding the concept of tax so that they are not surprised by the total cost of the book upon at the register. No purchase may be made without sufficient funds, including tax.書展中會有適合各種年齡的書籍。請讓孩子帶一些現金來買書。學者圖書公司表示大部分書籍價格為六美元至十美元（不含稅）。請注意，買書需要付稅（適用稅率：8.875％）。我們鼓勵您跟孩子討論有關稅金的問題，以免在付費時產生疑問。買書時需付全額費用。
To make the fair happen and to enhance the fair experience for our students, lots of parent volunteers will be needed. The SW community appreciates any amount of time you can give on any day. 為了讓所有學生都有機會參與書展，我們需要大量的家長志工。不論服務時間長短，雙文大家庭都感激不盡。

To support the diverse levels of students’ learning in ELA and Math, we will implement a personalized online learning tool for all students, K-8 this year. Our school has chosen to use Compass Learning Pathblazer, a web-based intervention curriculum, to enhance your child’s educational experience, close their learning gaps and ultimately move them further, faster.
Implementation is expected to roll out starting January 2017.
Currently teachers are receiving training from Compass Learning Pathblazer on how to
• set up student accounts
• implement the program
• monitor student progress once the program is fully operational
Once teachers are trained, he/she will administer a baseline diagnostic and from there, tailor a program with components in ELA and or MATH to best meet each student’s needs to build proficiency.
A component of the program allows for parents to work with students at home to support your child’s progress. Once the school program is up and running per class, teachers will be backpacking information home for you on how you may access your child’s account and provide support at home.
Thank you for your attention.
為協助本校幼稚班到八年級在英文與數學的不同學習程度與需求，我們特於本學年開始使用網路學習課程，希望學生們不只在學校，也可在家裡利用網路學習課程加強他們的學習效果。目前我們的學校選擇使用Compass Learning Pathblazer網路學習課程，以加強貴子弟的英文及數學能力，縮小學習差距，並依他們的程度促進其學業進步。
二○一七年一月，老師們接受過培訓之後，雙文學校學生將全面使用Compass Learning Pathblazer網路學習課程。
