On October 2nd, Friday, CHS' Chinese IV students, Mrs. Putnam, Mrs. Li, and Mrs. Zhao were invited to the Teacher Appreciation Day at Confucius Institute which is part of Cleveland State University. CHS is honored to become one of the Confucius Classrooms in the country. Our teachers and students had a great time and got inspired after this wonderful event with more than eight hundred students and teachers came from Central Ohio. In the after-field-trip survey, our students wrote about how they were encouraged on their Chinese study after hearing all those official messages (including one from President Obama) and student presentations on learning experience in class and overseas. They also better recognize the competition they are facing from their peers who also study Chinese around the State. They are now more motivated to become a global citizen. We will continue our partnership with CSU Confucius Institute to provide our students more learning opportunities in class and overseas.
