November

A month to give thanks

November means it's getting cooler, the leaves are falling off the trees and Christmas is almost here.  In the United States November means Thanksgiving. Although not in America we can still take time to think of all the things we are thankful for and thank God for our family, friends, community, and country. Here at Asian Hope we are thankful for your children and the opportunity we get to teach them every day.

Grade 2 Green

This has been such a crazy and fun month for Grade 2 Green! Our days in November have been full of creative thinking, writing, and active learning. In Literacy, we have been discovering different types of Nonfiction texts. Last week our topic of focus was on following written instructions. The students followed and correctly ordering written instructions to make a fun Chinese paper lantern!  In Numeracy we have been working on 3D shapes. The students had to identify and create different shapes in learning groups.  We have been learning about light in Topic and concluded our study on shadows by making fun shadow people! In Bible we have put our speaking skills to the test and recently presented a drama about David and Goliath during assembly. This month, in Writing, each student has received an individualized writing goal. Each student has been working very hard to achieve these goals; our class has been very excited to celebrate together when a goal is met. The month of November has been a growing, exciting, and learning experience for all in Grade Two Green.

Health Update

Dear Parents,

What is the difference between a cold and the flu?

The flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms such as fever, body aches, extreme tiredness, and dry cough are more common and intense. Colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose.

How long is a person with flu virus contagious?

The period when an infected person/child is contagious can start 1 day before symptoms develop and 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Some people, especially young children might be able to infect others for an even longer time.  Please talk to your Doctor about the flu vaccinations

Preventing the Flu: Good Health Habits Can Help Stop Germs

When people sneeze or cough droplets can land in the mouths and noses of other people/children and cause others to become sick as well.  

Hand washing

Despite its simplicity, hand cleaning is no laughing matter. The notion of hand washing is something most people learn about at a very young age . . . and yet many people just don’t do it. By not cleaning hands, people can get sick and spread their illnesses to others

Avoid close contact.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

Stay home when sick.

Children with flu need to stay home to prevent the spreading of it to other children.  If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.


Cover your mouth and nose.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
