APANO’s work is dedicated to ensuring equal rights for our communities and strengthening English language learning for our children.  We work closely as a partner with Portland Public Schools around expanding the Chinese Dual Language Immersion programs and creating the best educational experience for your child.

We are writing to invite you and your family to our district wide Chinese Parent Meeting on November 5, 2015 from 6 – 8 pm at Harrison Park Elementary (2225 SE 87th Ave, Portland, OR 97216).  The goal of this meeting is to hear from you about your experiences with your child’s school.  We will also address the value of parent engagement, parent rights, the astounding benefits of Dual Language Immersion, and introduce Portland Public School’s Chinese community agent, Edison Bee.  Edison will talk about his role in the district, and in particular, supporting Chinese speaking parents whose first language is not English.

Portland Public Schools and APANO value your voice.  As parents, you are the expert on your child and know what is working and what is not.  We want to hear from you and constantly improve the delivery of educational services to your child. We hope that you can join us!
