We are very excited to announce that we will have Chinese classes at Montessori Academy after school for Kindergarten - Middle School students. Our teacher, Ms. Fanrong Kong is a native Chinese speaker and a teacher at local High School and University. She has taught K-12 Mandarin Chinese for eight years. She holds a Master’s degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Language and a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese Language and Literature.
Learning Chinese is beneficial for your child's brain development and future career prospects. The written characters look like pictures, the tones sound like a song. Students will learn number, color, animal, family member, food, date, daily conversation, Chinese festival, story, song and culture.
Ms. Kong will offer two Mandarin Chinese classes per week.
The first class is open to Kindergarten through 3rd grade students and will meet on Mondays from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
The second class is open to 4th through 8th grade students and will meet on Fridays from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
Classes will be held in the Middle School Science Lab (in the Administration Building).
The cost is $40 a month and there is a $20 registration/supply fee. Tuition is due the first week of each month. The classes are subject of cancellation due to low enrollment.
Payment can be made by check (payable to Fanrong Kong) or cash in the Administrative Office.
Chinese will begin September 10th (K-3rd students) and September 7th (4th-8th students).
