rnrn
rnrnThisrn is a very important assignment to help students reflect on the purpose rnof this trip and the qualities in themselves that would make this rnprogram a successful one. Please give your child this assignment at yourrn earliest convenience.

rn3) Orientation. We will hold an orientation on Saturday June 9 at the cafeteria of Princetel, Inc. - 2560 E State ST EXT, Hamilton NJ 08619 (http://princetel.com/contact.asp) - from 2 to 4 rnp.m. This is NOT a required event, but for rnthose who can come, this orientation can be an opportunity for you to rnget your remaining questions answered and meet a couple of other parentsrn and students. Please RSVP to this email by Friday June 8.
rn
rnWe can also open a conference call line from 2 to 4 p.m. on rnSaturday June 9: Dial: 605.475.4333 Access Code: 774228#. Please RSVP torn this email by Friday June 8 if you would like to dial in. The sound quality may not be good. I can be reached by my cell phone 609.575.2187.

rn4) Contact on June 25. If you are going to drop off your child at the Yong An Hotel, please contact 13611221288 (Wang Laoshi). If your child will be traveling alone, we will meet him/her at the Beijing airport on June 25th based on the information in the Supplementary Registration. Please give him/her this contact just in case: 13910906679.

We will be staying at Yong An Hotel and will email you daily announcements.
rn
rn5) Packing List. This can be found at www.yinghuasummer.org under FAQs (#5). It is included here for your convenience. Please keep in mind that NO cell phone will be allowed. In the past, we have flip-floped on this and concluded that any frequent contact with parents did not help students enjoy their unique experience at YiB. The usage of cell phone could make the student making the call as well as other students more "home-sick" prone and less engaged at times. Students will have limited time to send parents email a couple times a week. You can also call them at the phone in their rooms. I will send the phone/room numbers to you on the second day of our arrival.

Please let me know should you have any questions.


rnRegards,
rnBonniernrn
