Dear parents and students of the Buffalo Chinese School:

Welcome back!  We hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. The Buffalo Chinese School will
open for the first day of 2015-2016 class on Saturday September 12, 2015. Our team of administrator and
faculty have made all necessary preparations to ensure another exciting year of learning and growing
for our students.  Under James Wang's excellent leadership in 2014-2015, our school had a very
successful year. We would like to thank all parents for your strong support during the adjustment
period last year. As we start our new academic year, we will again count on your understanding and
support. We believe our efforts and commitments together will allow us to reach the goals of our
school, and provide an excellent environment and opportunity for all interested students (with or
without Chinese heritage) to learn Chinese language and culture.

The NO-SCHOOL days for 2015-2016 will be:

(please make sure to frequently check out the most updated school schedule in "Schedules" tab in the
school website):

Let me introduce the members of our administrative team for this year:

Mr. Jin WANG (王津, wangajin@yahoo.com) will be the principal for school year of 2015-2016.

Mr. Cheng LIANG (梁澄, liangcheng78@gmail.com) will be the assistant principal.  He will work closely
with the principal to oversee all academic affairs of our school, and gradually take over the lead role.
He will continuously manage the school’s website and coordinate our web-based communications.

Ms. Aili ZHOU (周爱丽) will take the critical and demanding treasurer role.  She will manage our financial
and student registration.

Mr. Zhengrong XU (徐峥嵘) will be our textbook administrator for the second year.  He will be working
with each teacher, as well as all students, to provide new textbooks for purchase, preferably on a class-
size basis.

For 2015-2016, Mr. James WANG (王志渊) will be our Board Chair, and Ms. Min YU (于明) will be our
teacher's representative. They will contribute by providing guidance and advice to our school.

The tuition of this semester will be
$140 per student. Please make your best effort to pay tuition to our
treasurer, Ms. Aili ZHOU, in the first few weeks when our School starts this coming Saturday. In order to
enroll Buffalo Chinese School, you need to be a CCWNY member.  CCWNY officers will be at school
during registration time and help enrollment.  The CCWNY membership is
$30/single and $50/family.  

Please remember also to follow the Williamsville North High parking rule, by only parking your vehicles
at permitted spots. As warned by North High, any vehicles left in non-parking areas of the school's
property may be towed away at the owner's expense.  

Please check out our website at http://www.buffalochineseschool.org for up-to-date information on the
school’s schedule and news. Throughout the school year, any changes in our schedule due to
inclement weather conditions and other unexpected problems will be promptly announced through
email as well as posting on the website.

Thank you again for your support of the Buffalo Chinese School. Our faculty and staff look forward to
welcoming all of our students on September 12th.

Best Regards,

Jin WANG, Principal
Buffalo Chinese School

2015-2016
