亲爱的同学,家长,老师们,

 

2014-2015学年已经开始两周, 又值中国的十一国庆, 我代表西北中文学校董事会向大家致以诚挚问候。

 

新学年伊始,学校的管理团队和PTA均开始了繁忙的运转,相信大家也已开始收到他们在周三和周四发出的每周电邮。董事会一般只在有重要事件时会给学校成员发邮件,以避免给大家的邮箱增添负担。因为无论是学校成员还是董事会,都有一定的流动性,所以在新学期伊始给大家一个介绍性的邮件,让大家了解一下本年度的学校董事会。

 

西北中文学校是一个主要由志愿者组成的教育组织。经过近二十年来各届团队的努力,我们已经成为全美按单个校址算规模最大的中文学校。这是非常了不起的成绩,其意义不但在于其规模,而更重要的是其民间性,民主性,公益性证明了我们华人建设公民社会的能力。学校结构里,除了最重要的教师队伍和全体学生之外, 有三驾马车: 行政团队,董事会,及PTA 其中行政团队在校长领导下,肩负教学和学校行政事务的管理责任。PTA由志愿者组成,他们在学校事务上起到了对行政团队极大的补充及支持作用。 相对这两者而言,董事会较不为大家所熟悉。

 

按照中文学校的By-Law, 董事会一般由9个成员组成。其来源须是学生家长。 每位董事的任期为3年,所以在每年换届时平均会有3位成员更新。董事会的功能在于制定及维护学校的大的发展方向, 在重大事情上做决定, 以及监督行政团队对学校事务的管理。 另外,根据我们学校的公益性质,每个董事成员更是学校的default的志愿者。

 

每年六月学年快结束时董事会会进行新成员招募和补选。 本学年的董事会即为今年六月的AGMM时确定下来的。 这里列出一个名单以便大家熟悉:

 

董事长:            蒋海林                 (Hailin.Jiang@nwchinese.org )

副董事长:       孙晨亮                 (Chenliang.Sun@nwchinese.org)

秘书长:            马明罡                 (Daniel.ma@nwchinese.org)

财务长:            王宏伟                 (Hongwei.Wang@nwchinese.org)

 

小组委员会:

财务:                 王宏伟,陈莉萍 (June.Chen@nwchinese.org)

公关及活动: 何蓉晖 (Ronnie.He@nwchinese.org) 李伟 (Wei.Li@nwchinese.org)

学校运营:       黄勇(Yong.Huang@nwchinese.org),  高雪梅 (Xuemei.Gao@nwchinese.org), 何蓉晖

 

董事会有其稳定的长远计划(每年的AGMM会上会有提及)。就本学年而言,董事会在学期初的会议上确定了本年的工作重心:

1.       加强师资队伍及其待遇

2.       发展壮大Downtown Bellevue Campus

 

希望董事会和行政团队及PTA团结配合, 在明年夏末回顾本学年时可以自豪地宣布目标达到。

 

董事会非常希望有志参与学校建设的家长加入我们的团队。 我们每个月初有一次董事会议在Downtown Bellevue Office召开。 十月的会议就在本周四晚7点。 对学校事务及董事会感兴趣的家长可以和PTA ( PTA@nwchinese.org) 或我本人(Hailin.Jiang@nwchinese.org) 联系参与。

 

最后,祝大陆来的家庭十一快乐, 祝台湾的家庭双十节快乐!

 

蒋海林

西北中文学校董事长

 

 

 

Dear NWCS families,

 

Greetings from NWCS Board for the new school year of 2014-1025,  and Chinese National Holidays!

 

NWCS is a non-profit organization, formed and operated mainly by volunteers. After nearly 20 years of persistent efforts we have become the largest single-campus Chinese school in the U.S. Besides the teachers and students, there are three important teams running the school: Admin, Board and PTA. Here I would like to give everyone a brief introduction about the board.

 

According to NWCS By-Law, the board of directors normally consists of 9 members, all of whom are NWCS parents. The membership last 3 years, so on average each year we refresh with 3 new members.  The main functionality for the board is setting and maintaining the directions of school development, making important decisions on school affairs, and supervising the school operation by the administration team. What’s more, by the volunteer nature of our school, every board member is a default volunteer of NWCS.

 

Each school year the board performs the member refresh by election at year end ( June ). The board of this year consists of the follow members:

 

Chair:                    Hailin Jiang          (Hailin.Jiang@nwchinese.org )

Vice Chair:           Chenliang Sun   (Chenliang.Sun@nwchinese.org)

Secretary:           Daniel Ma            (Daniel.ma@nwchinese.org)

Treasurer:           Hongwei Wang (Hongwei.Wang@nwchinese.org)

 

Sub-Committees:

Financial:             Hongwei Wang,  June Chen (June.Chen@nwchinese.org)

PR & Events:      Ronghui Hanatate (Ronnie.He@nwchinese.org) Wei Li  (Wei.Li@nwchinese.org)

Operations    Yong Huang (Yong.Huang@nwchinese.org), Xuemei Gao (Xuemei.Gao@nwchinese.org),  Ronghui Hanatate

 

At the beginning of this semester the board has setup the main focus areas of work for this year:

 

1.       Improve teaching quality and teachers’ compensation

2.       Build up the business at Downtown Bellevue Campus

 

Each month the board holds a regular meeting. We welcome parents who are interested in school operation and volunteering to join us. The upcoming meeting will be held this Thursday at 7pm at our downtown Bellevue office. Please contact PTA ( PTA@nwchinese.org ) or myself (Hailin.Jiang@nwchinese.org) if you are interested in observing.

 

Best wishes on the national holidays,

 

Hailin Jiang

Chair of NWCS Board
