It is a must to hold parents' meeting at the beginning of each semester. It aims to better achieve the purpose of home-school co-education, make parents deeply understand the main work of the school in the new semester and clarify the academic requirements of different subjects. The online(G2~4) and offline(G1,G5) parents’ meeting were held on September 16 and 17, respectively.
At first, parents watched SESID Documentary, in which they saw the lively and busy figure of children and teachers. Through the video, parents have a more intuitive and specific understanding of children's campus life.
Ms. Fu Yun, director of SESID, made a speech in the new semester. Focusing on the research topic "Reducing burden and increasing efficiency", Ms. Fu introduced the coping methods adopted by the school at all levels. After full discussion in teaching teams, the learning contents are discussed and analyzed in details according to the characteristics of various subjects, learning ages and teaching materials. We encourage kids to do more sports and housework to enrich their extracurricular life, and develop in an all-round way. In addition, school characteristic courses and the logistics work such as school bus and canteen were also explained one by one.
Foreign teachers introduced the learning contents and requirements of ELA course and Stem course in details; Chinese teachers also explained their requirements. Teachers all believe that we should increase the learning efficiency in each class at school. Each student is required to "listen to each class and complete each assignment carefully".
Fifth graders are about to face the choice of school. Mr. Chen Hui, deputy secretary of SES, gave a guidance to the parents. He introduced the entrance process curriculum structure, teaching teams and the connection between junior and senior high school. Seniors and parent representatives were also invited to share the learning life at middle school. Through the sharing, parents have a clearer understanding of the entrance process, curriculum structure, and have more thoughts on planning future study.
Online and offline parent meetings build a bridge between home and school, through which parents can have a deeper understanding of all aspects of work at school. We will work together to promote the happy growth of students.
