I would like to highlight a very special blog this week: Families that Blog Together, Learn Together. This site matches Georgetown families with Raey Guang families — the intent of fostering an appreciation and understanding of one anothers family lives. Our sister school, Raey Guang Elementary, is in Pingtung, Taiwan.
Michele DeWinter, a parent and paraprofessional in our school, is responsible for creating, hosting and managing this blog. She has matched families and creatively works to overcome the communication barriers (English vs Mandarin).
A Raey Guang teacher, Chia Pin Chen, recently added a class post to our Blogpal site. The post helps us to learn about their interests–foods, activities, and pets! Please take time to read the post and leave comments sharing your interests. In addition, Chia Pin Chen, created a class blog with photos of the children in his class. This blog is in early stages of development, but very much worth a visit.
We look forward to sharing all that we learn about our friends in Pingtung, Taiwain through our blogs.
