Pacific Beach Middle

- The sixth grade Mandarin immersion students in Boyan Zhang’s classroom at Pacific Beach Middle School enjoyed a feast of the senses on Feb. 18, as they prepared their elaborate buffet of traditional Chinese foods. Each recipe was researched in advance and prepared by the students themselves. Handmade posters and homemade video tutorials accompanied each item. The annual Chinese food project is a much-loved tradition for the sixth-grade immersion class, not only because it incorporates the Mandarin reading, writing, and speaking skills they have been honing since elementary school, but also because it (literally) adds flavor to classroom learning.

"Tasting each dish was like tasting a piece of China,” said sixth-grade student Texas Z., who selected scallion pancakes for his project. “Everyone in our class chose to make authentic Chinese foods and I sampled all of them – even the ones I didn’t think I would like. Also, it was fun to make a video of my recipe at home. Everyone in my family wanted to taste my pancakes.”

Bringing the project into the home and making it a family affair was an important component of the lesson. According to Zhang, engaging the students’ parents in the selection of the recipe, purchasing the ingredients, making the dish, and filming the video allows them to gain a greater appreciation for their students’ language skills and the Chinese culture.

The San Diego Unified School District’s Mandarin immersion program begins in kindergarten at Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School and continues into PBMS and Mission Bay High School, giving students the opportunity to be immersed in the language from kindergarten through high school. Hands-on, cultural projects like this one make learning fun and leave the students hungry for more.

- WE Charity encourages people of all ages to make a difference, both domestically and locally, through programs like WE Schools and WE Villages. WE Charity is financially efficient as an average of 90% of donations going directly to child-serving programs. ASB advisor, Ashley Hensen said " ASB can't wait to put these funds to good use to spread kindness. PBMS ASB has run various WE Campaigns throughout the school year, including a WE are Silent Campaign, raising $193 via penny wars to help fund education in rural China.

Barnard Elementary

- Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School community welcomed the Chinese Year of the Rat over several weeks in January and February. Barnard students performed in Chinese New Year events at Sea World, Balboa Park, and downtown. Students from each classroom took to the stage for their families in acts that highlighted different Chinese arts, including traditional and contemporary songs and dance, kung fu, and more.

The highlight of the celebrations was Barnard’s annual free, community-wide Chinese New Year festival, held on Feb. 1. Festival attendees enjoyed spirited entertainment, fun games, and food throughout the day, a labor of love and the result of hours of work from dozens of dedicated parent volunteers. “I love to watch the Chinese New Year performances with my family and friends,” said Barnard first-grader Natalie M. “They are so interesting. They teach me about China.”

FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUSI thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR ADIGBA cured them from herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR ADIGBA because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR ADIGBA via [email protected] com or WhatsApp him via 2348077875210. he is good too to cure all type of disease and virus. 1 HIV cure 2 cancer 3 diabetes 4 hepatitis 5 herpes. You can contact if you are having any problem...

First, I want to complement this page administrator for creating this platform for us to express our feelings. Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can't be cured through drugs or injections by the American doctors but the best way to deal with herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine from DR. ISHIAKU the greatest herbalist doctor in the world and is only few American doctors that know about this herbal medicine from Dr ISHIAKU .. I have read about Dr ISHIAKU the great herbalist doctor from African who can cure disease with his powerful herbal medicine. for the people suffering from the following diseases, Herpes,HIV/Aids, Cancer, Also, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Hpv, Infections ETC should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes. Although, i sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine through DHL courier delivery company which i took for 10 days and today when i went for test i was tested herpes negative. you can reach him through his email ([email protected]) or WhatsApp him at 2348180828544

I am BIANCA AQUINO from United States LAKEWOOD NEW JERSEY, I was having herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a half years. I am so scared that my friends are going to laugh at me, if they should find out that I have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my boyfriend broke up with me. I have been to Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all came back negative. I have also been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (I freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any Bigger, but then they didn’t shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. Sometimes it get sweet when Scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so badly! Until i stubbed into DR. ekiadola Daily post on remedy for herpes diseases has posted by Sarah lifted from Dr.ekiadola daily post as advise to Mathew and George about the great herbal doctor how he has helped them get rid of these infectious diseases, and how this great herbal doctor called DR. ekiadola healed them; So that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy. That how i was cured. contact him on his email. [email protected] or whatsapp: 17784004580
