From the Director 项目主任总结
Baishan AWS is partnered with Annie Wright Schools (AWS) in Tacoma, Washington and prepares students for higher education abroad. Our Weekly Update is an opportunity for us to share all of the great learning experiences that take place both in and outside of our classroom, and is a testament to our commitment to communication with our parents as well as the community.
Baishan AWS, Qingdao, China 白珊·安妮高中是青岛白珊学校与美国华盛顿州塔科马市的安妮·怀特学校合作，为学生到海外继续学习做好准备的高中项目。每周的周讯是我们分享学生在学校课堂内外有趣学习经历的机会，也是我们致力于与家长和社区进行沟通的很好的工具和证明。
Yellow River National Reserve Park 黄河三角洲国家级自然保护区
This week’s Baishan AWS Weekly Update is dedicated to our students’ trip to Dongying. Perhaps some of our parents are already familiar with Dongying. For the other readers, Dongying is the city near the delta of China’s Mother River – the Yellow River. While the estuary, itself, offered our student valuable learning experiences, the city has even more to offer.
The coordination efforts of Ms. Helen Du and the expert organization of Mr. Keke Liu, this trip offered our students the necessary variety that respects the many aspects of the city. 在杜老师的协调安排和学生家长刘克珂先生的专业组织下，这次研学活动让学生们认识到尊重城市发展的方方面面的必要性和多样性。
Although the trip experiences were undoubtedly educational and motivating, the students were also challenged to organize their learning by comparing Dongying and Qingdao regarding the following three overarching concepts: 这次研学无疑具有教育意义和激励作用，通过比较东营和青岛两个不同城市的三个主要概念，学生们也面临着组织学习的挑战
Teachers also provided smaller manageable lessons that pertained more specifically to their subjects.
The first day of the overnight trip included a boat tour of the delta, a visit to bird sanctuary, and a surprise barbecue party. Students spent day two learning more about the history of area and the importance of “the mother river” basin.
Accompanied by Ms. Helen Du and Mr. Lorne Brandt, the students departed for Dongying promptly at 07:30 in the morning. Three and an half hours later, the group arrived for a large lunch, complete with the local fish soup – an entrée which the area is known for.
周三上午7:30，学生们在Mr. Brandt 主任和杜老师的陪同下前往东营。三个半小时后到达东营，迎接学生们的是一顿精心准备的午餐，配上当地著名的鲫鱼汤。
Accompanied by the hired guide, the tour to the Huang He (Yellow River) National Reserve Park began. The drive introduced the students to the protected White Goose nests and the old Yellow River channel.
The Baishan AWS students boarded a river boat that lead them through a 2-hour cruise through the delta. The boat ride stopped at the famous – seemingly magical – place where the river water meets the sea water. The less dense and orange-colored freshwater meeting the denser, darker ocean water creates a notable hard line. Fish can be seen jumping from one side of the line to the next while opportunistic sea gulls fly above.

Students were then able to get a 7-D movie experience. Students sat in the chairs, strapped their seatbelts and experienced flying through famous destinations along the Yellow River. The extra dimensions took the form of chairs moving, mist spraying, and air blowing across the seats.
The bus then took the students to the bird hospital, where the students were able to read about and see many of the injured birds listed as nationally protected. The majestic Red-crowned Crane stole the show. 随后，学生们参观了鸟类医院，学生们在那里可以看到许多受伤的国家珍稀保护鸟类。雄伟的丹顶鹤抢了风头。

Dongying Barbecue and a Surprise Party 烧烤和篝火晚会
That evening, Mr. Liu and family hosted a dinner and surprise birthday party for Mr. Brandt. The evening included a bonfire, plenty of grilled barbecue, a band, and impromptu performances by a few of our very own talented gators. In Mr. Liu's welcome speech, he reminded us that experiences such as these are important in our efforts to create the best learning environments for the students -- both academically and socially. Our program is young, but strong.
Students were able to sit at the same table and enjoy each others' genuine personalities without an agenda. Fun was had by all, especially by Mr. Brandt who enjoyed the cake and festivities. 学生们可以围坐着一张桌子，轻松地享受彼此真实的个性。大家都玩得很开心，尤其是Mr. Brandt先生，他非常享受并感谢刘先生为他准备的蛋糕和庆祝活动。
