HCAS kindergarteners have been learning about their school community. They have had several visitors to the kindergarten to talk about their roles in the school. Members of the school leadership team, as well as upper school teachers, came to talk about what they do, and each read a story to the class.

HCAS 幼兒園的孩子們最近一直在學習有關於我們的學校社區。通過這個主題,學校的各級領導成員以及高中老師們來介紹他們的工作與在學校的角色,並為全班同學朗讀故事。

👧🧒👦🧑👩‍🦰 The recent event at our school, where Grade 10 Pre-AP Chemistry students showcased captivating chemistry experiments to kindergarten students, was nothing short of magical. It was truly a heartwarming experience to witness the older students engage with the little ones, sparking curiosity and wonder. The chemistry experiments, carefully curated for their age, brought science to life in a way that textbooks simply cannot. The kindergartners' faces lit up with amazement as they witnessed colorful chemical reactions, bubbling potions, and mesmerizing transformations. This interaction between high school and kindergarten students not only fostered a sense of community within our school but also demonstrated the immense power of education through fun and interactive learning experiences. It was a beautiful reminder that even the youngest minds can be inspired to explore the world of science, setting a strong foundation for their future education. 上週,10 年級 AP 預科化學學生向幼兒園學生展示了神奇又引人入勝的化學實驗。老師目睹高中的學生與小學生互動,激發小朋友的好奇心和驚奇,這確實是一次溫馨的經歷。這些精心策劃化學實驗,以教科書根本無法做到的方式將科學帶入生活。當幼兒園的孩子們目睹了豐富多彩的化學反應、冒泡的藥水和令人著迷的變化時,他們的臉上露出了驚訝的表情。高中生和幼兒園學生之間的互動不僅培養了我們學校的社區意識,而且通過有趣和互動的學習體驗展示了教育的巨大力量,也提醒著我們,即使是最年輕的頭腦也可以受到啟發去探索科學世界,為他們未來的教育奠定堅實的基礎。 #HCAS #新竹縣康乃薾美國學校 #contribution #communication #community #compassion #criticalthinking #collaboration #creativity #美國學校

On Saturday some of our grade 8 to 11 students hopped on the train to Miaoli and helped clean the beach of plastic debris amidst afternoon downpours. They quickly filled up bags of waste and celebrated the success among nearly 100 other citizens and visitors to Taiwan. 上週六,我們的一些學生搭乘前往苗栗的火車,在午後的傾盆大雨中幫助清理海灘上的塑料碎片。他們迅速裝滿垃圾袋,並與近百名熱心名眾和遊客一起為地球盡一份心。 Student Volunteers: Alexander L., Alicia W., Ally C., Ashley C., Ayuri O., Benjamin W., Casper H., Eric F., Eva L., Isabelle C., Jason C., Jessie H., Justin Y., Marcella W., Sean C., Xin W., and Yiling L.

The Best & the Most Delicious School Lunch in Northern Taiwan Lunch is an essential part of the day to keep us going throughout the entire day of work or study. The difference between having a good lunch or not is night and day on our mood and energy level, and having a good lunch will keep us amped up for the rest of the day, won’t you all agree? At HCAS we are confident that our school lunch is one of the best, if not the best in Northern Taiwan. It is so good that having lunch is something that all the teachers, students, and staff look forward to and discuss each day. It is so good that we just had to interview Chef Huang and his culinary team, Lisa, Josh, and James, to give everyone a glimpse of the team’s expertise and dedication to providing delicious meals for us each day. 北台灣最棒、最美味的校園午餐! 午餐是一天中不可少的一部分,讓我們能夠繼續一整天的工作或學習。午餐吃得好與否的區別在對我們情緒和精力有極大的影響,吃一頓好的午餐會讓我們在剩下的一天裡保持精力充沛,大家同意嗎? 在新竹縣康乃薾美國學校,我們有信心我們的學校午餐是北台灣最好的之一,如果不是最好的之一。我們的午餐是所有老師、學生和工作人員每天都盼望和討論的事情之一。因此,我們不得不採訪黃廚師和他的烹飪團隊 Lisa、Josh 和 James,讓大家了解團隊的專業和奉獻精神,每天為我們提供美味佳餚。 下載當月午餐菜單 Download our monthly lunch menu here www.hcas.tw/campus-life/ #HCAS #新竹縣康乃薾美國學校 #contribution #community #collaboration #creativity #美國學校 #美食 #校園美食 #營養午餐
