• Letter from the Principal – Virtual Fall 2021

    Dear Parents, I hope all of you are still enjoying the remainder of summer vacation and hope all of you are healthy and well. I am sorry to inform you that last night, the CCAGP board has decided that the coming fall semester will be on Zoom again due to the seriousness of Delta Variant, hoping we can all return to Radnor Middle School for the spring semester. I am sure all of you can understand this unusual situation. I have been working with our teachers the last few weeks to plan our programs and curriculum for the coming semester.

  • Letter from the Principal: 2020 Plans Due to Covid-19 Restrictions

    Dear Parents, This Friday will be the last class of the first session of our virtual summer camp. Next Monday, we’ll start our second session. This is the first time in 20 years that we only see each other over zoom. We miss seeing all the campers and teachers having fun together indoors and outdoors. We are so encouraged by many campers who live as far away as Seattle, California, Boston, New York, New Jersey, and Texas joining us this year.  I am looking forward to meeting some of the new campers joining us next week, as well as sharing stories with teachers and parents. I just talked to Dr. Harrison […]

  • A letter from our SAC President

    I hope this letter finds you well and safe.  As the school year is now over, we wanted to thank all parents for the patience shown throughout this past semester.  As a parent myself, I was so excited to see that my children were still able to continue their Chinese during quarantine.  I am sure you would agree, those couple of hours of free time were also nice.  We are so proud of our teachers, who quickly adapted to zoom and prepared lessons that continued our high standard of education in Ding Hao.  Also, wanted to acknowledge the continued work of Principal Mrs. Betty Foo, who created new lesson plans, […]
