Please make or change your class selection online before the school starts on Sept 6th. There are a few recent changes on the ACT classes:

-Due to populate demand, we will split Creative Math Problem Solving into two classes:
(1) Creative Math Problem Solving I (Grades 3 & 4) 巧解数学难题1
(2) Creative Math Problem Solving I (Grade 4) 巧解数学难题2
Both classes are now open to enroll more students.

-Math Olympiad Class 2 and Math Olympiad Class 3 will be combined in the same classroom. The teachers for the combine classes will be Ms. Lois Zhu, Dr. M. Muralee, and Prof. Liu.

-SAT Math I and Math Olympiad Class 4 will be combined together in the same classroom and will be taught by Ms. Lois Zhu. The objective of this combined class is to prepare grade 7 students to take SAT by the end of the year.

-Android App Development class is canceled due to insufficient enrollment.

There are a few classes that are already full but many others are still open. Please see the included spreadsheet at the end of this email for the updated ACT class information, including teacher assignment and classroom assignment

Last but not least, there are some ACT staff changes as well. Ms. Kun Yang, the ACT Director for the past two years, has moved to become the CHL Director, and Ms. Weining Xu, the ACT Assistant Director for Arts has moved to become the CHL Assistant Director. Thank you, both Kun and Weining for your past volunteering contributions to the ACT program at CCS.
