世界地球日,用行動愛地球


一個好因緣,促成了今天的淨灘活動。從去年開始帶這班畢業生,我們經常在課堂中探討各項環保議題,從節能減碳、到無塑星球,再到蔬食護地球等等主題,不斷地提醒我們環保不是遙遠的口號,而是用心在生活的每一個小細節中都能做到愛護我們的地球。
今年正逢是西雅圖慈濟人文學校二十週年的生日,我們畢業生決定用行動祝賀人文學校的第一個二十年,畢業生家長從活動前一天開始備料,活動當天全體畢業生在課堂上一起包素壽司給志工們當午餐,親自在放學前將包好的壽司送到志工們手上,讓大家能在前往淨灘地點的路上,享受愛心壽司。

         預定一點才開始的活動,大家都興奮地一放學就直奔淨灘的公園,讓活動從報到到分組的過程非常順利,而且每一組也都加入了有淨灘經驗的慈青學長姐們,由識途老馬帶領著我們大大小小的新手有效率的攜手淨灘,在行前愛的叮嚀中,提醒大家注意自身安全,我們要開開心心的淨灘,平平安安的回家。

淨灘的地點在Juanita Beach Park, 是一個社區中的沙灘公園,每天都有很多的人在這兒運動或野餐,看似乾淨的沙灘,在志工們動手淨灘後,發現了許許多多瓶蓋、玻璃碎片、塑膠碎片和塑膠用品等等不起眼的垃圾,但也就是這些五顏六色的垃圾,危害了大量的海洋生物。


感謝學校的全力支持,還有今天參加淨灘的所有志工,包含人文學校的畢業生、畢業生家長、校友、慈青、慈少和慈幼,出席人數總共六十三人,對於第一次辦活動的我來說,是無比大的鼓勵,也讓我知道有如此多的人一直默默地用他們的行動愛護著地球,我與今年的畢業生達成共識,不論他們畢業以後在哪裡讀書工作,每一年的世界地球日,我們都要再相聚,用我們鼓掌的雙手還給海洋生物一個乾淨的生活環境。

Our volunteers on site in the cafeteria will be happily receiving your donations over the next few weeks. 

Again we truly appreciate your help and support, citing love amongst us all.

Weather Condition Information - March 23, 2018


}如因天候不佳必須停課時, 校方評估上課當天早上情況後如需停課,最晚在當天早上七點以前啟動聯絡網,請老師通知班媽媽 & 助教媽媽運用聯絡網通知家長 (若每班有三個班媽媽平均一個人通知 3-5 個家長),並使用學校行動訊息傳遞給家長的行動電話。
}
}學校決定停課時, 如果家長們有任何問題, 請以學生班級老師為聯絡窗口, 然後各班老師按照分配窗口進行回報
由於學生分佈在不同區域,如果學校沒有停課,仍請家長依照自己住家附近的路況安全來判斷是否出門上課。

School Safety Announcement


This is an announcement in regards to our campus safety, there are several things that need to be addressed and we kindly ask for everyone’s cooperation towards the issue.
1.   Last Saturday, a student has made statements about bombs and guns toward fellow classmates. May we remind you this is unacceptable and a serious issue that needs to be addressed. We have made a verbal warning towards the student and have informed the parents, who are required to take the matter seriously and communicate with the student at home. After the incident, the administrative team immediately gather all the information needed and have decided it would the at everyone’s best interest to follow the rules and guidelines of the Bellevue School District. If the situation continues or escalates, we’re required to inform the police department. This is a safety issue concerning all students, teachers, and parents, we want to assure you the school takes the matter very seriously to prevent any posed threats. We have attached BSD Safety Code of Conduct.
2.   We ask all parents to speak to their children about inappropriate usage of words even when used as a joke. Any threats made whether spoken, acted, or symbolic, direct or indirect are unacceptable and would require the school to respond with immediate measures.
3.   We kindly remind all room parents to wear a volunteer vest prior entering the classrooms to help the security crew patrolling the school parameters. May we remind you again this is an “open” campus, your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
School safety has always been an imperative subject matter to our school. With increase in tallied gun violence, we ask for everyone’s cooperation and effort to make this a safe learning environment for our kids.
Thank you,
Tzu Chi Academy Administrative Team

親愛的家長,
關於校園安全,有幾件事情需要提醒大家,並請大家配合協助。
  1. 上星期六,有學生口頭說出關於炸彈和槍的言語,這是學校絕對不能接受的,因此我們請大家一起來正視這個問題。學校除了對這位學生進行口頭申誡,並告知家長,且請家長務必回函確認在家裡有再次和學生嚴肅溝通。事情發生後,行政團隊立即蒐集資料,決定以後將遵守Bellevue School District 的守則,若情況嚴重,我們將有可能直接通知警察。這是全校所有老師,學生,家長的安全問題,學校將會非常嚴肅處理,以避免任何可能發生的不安全情況。 (附件是BSD safety code of conduct)
  1. 請各位家長需和學生說明,這些不當言語,或是假裝的動作,不可拿來當作玩笑的內容,因為這也同時牽涉到威脅。若有發現,學校將會採取立即的措施。 
  1. 請所有進教室的家長,務必領取志工背心,以便安全團隊巡邏時,能辨別是否為陌生人。再重申一次,這個校區開放,請大家幫忙配合穿上志工背心,將會讓學校更為安全 
學校安全一直是我們最重視的問題,有鑑於社會上發生槍擊的事件,我們希望您能和我們一起合作,創造一個安全的學習環境。
感恩您
