John C. Haines students go ‘Back-To-School’ on Tuesday, September 6, 2016!!
Is your family ready? 你的家庭預備好了嗎？
Get the children to bed on time. Help your child get used to the back-to-school routine: start the transition now to earlier wake-up times and bedtimes. 讓孩子準時上床睡覺，幫助孩子習慣了返學的常規：現在要開始早睡早起的時間。
Communicate with teachers and the school. Contact your child’s teachers at the start of the school year. Get acquainted with them and let them know you want to be an active partner in helping your student to learn and grow. Plan to keep track of your child’s subjects, homework, activities and progress throughout the school year. 跟教師和學校溝通，在學年的開始請聯繫孩子的老師，結識他們，讓他們知道你想成為幫助學生學習和成長的一個積極夥伴，監察孩子的科目，家庭作業，活動和全學年的進展。
Prepare a study area. Set up a special place at home to do school work and homework. Remove distractions. Make it clear that education is a top priority in your family: show interest and praise your child’s work. 在家準備一個溫習的地方，並建立了一個特別的地方讓孩子做做功課和作業，排除干擾，明確指出教育是家庭的頭等大事：表現出興趣，並讚美孩子的努力。
Read Together. Take the pledge to read with your child for 30 minutes every day. Your example reinforces the importance of literacy, and reading lets you and your child explore new worlds of fun and adventure together. 一起閱讀，抽時間每天和孩子閱讀30分鐘，你的榜樣強化學習的重要性，閱讀可以讓您和孩子探索有樂趣的新世界，的一起經歷。
Haines staff is looking forward to meeting your child.

Dear John C. Haines School Parents,
I am delighted and privileged to be able to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of John C. Haines School!
Some of you may be interested in knowing a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I have been in the field of education for the last 20 years, recently as the assistant principal of John C. Haines School. I have a daughter who will be in the first grade at CPS and my husband too, is an educator with the Chicago Public Schools.
My official day as the Principal of Haines School is Friday, July 1st and I am looking forward to it. I am excited to work with the staff on meeting the physical, social/emotional and intellectual needs of our children. Partnering with you and the children during 2016-2017 school year will be amazing.
As a principal, I realize the education of children is a difficult job, and cannot be accomplished without the help and support of parents and the Chinatown and surrounding community. I encourage parents and community members to be active participants in the education of our students at Haines School. There are many ways to participate in the academic achievement of our students, but, the quickest way is to maintain an open line of communication.
Please consider getting involved with Haines staff and students this year. We can use volunteers at school all the time. You can volunteer in the school library, lunchroom, playground, and a classroom. We will be happy to assist you find an area! If you have concerns, questions, or would like to volunteer, please feel free to give me a call at 773-534-9200 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In closing, I would like to thank the Local School Council, Chicago Public Schools and the staff and the community of John C. Haines Elementary for giving me this opportunity. I will work persistently to continue to provide an exemplary, well-rounded experience for the students at John C. Haines School.
