The 2017-2018 school year is beginning. It is an honor and privilege to be part of Rockland Chinese School and seeing the children almost every Sunday, learning with happiness is a successful, joyous accomplishment that we can all feel good about. Challenges are a natural part of life, but when we acknowledge them and use them as motivating forces, we reach new heights and triumph as human beings. Learning Chinese language is such a challenge and we are succeeding.
We will come together for the year 2017-2018, the year of the Rooster, 4715 to 4716, the year of the Dog on the Chinese calendar, and will soon see each other at the Graduation, followed by the annual Barbecue. Time goes fast.
I would like to thank each and every one of you in advance who will participate in our school as a Parent. There are Parent Duties that each of you will help us with. Without your help, our school could not function as a team. It is all of us that pull together to support the operation and with each of our help, we can make this a meaningful year for our children.
Together we stand, is the motto for Rockland Chinese School. This is a motto that speaks of long term success. We believe that the success of human beings has been because we can work together. And we further believe that if human beings work together, and not against one another, then human beings will continue to evolve in a wonderfully positive direction.
Stephen Kaplan, Chairman
