Washington Yu Ying PCS is a Chinese-immersion, public charter, International Baccalaureate World School in the nation's capital
Washington Yu Ying was founded by parents in 2008 on two simple premises: 1. Fluency in more than one language develops a greater ability to communicate with and to understand other cultures; and 2. Mandarin Chinese—spoken by one in five people worldwide—is an important language for American children to learn, especially as U.S. economic and political connections to China become increasingly intertwined.
Due to the anticipated snow, Yu Ying will have a 2 hour delay today, Wednesday, January 14th. School will open at 10:10 a.m., and all students should be in their classrooms by 10:30 a.m. Before care is canceled this morning. Stay warm!

Happy Holidays to you and yours from Yu Ying! Enjoy the break and stay warm…we'll be back online soon. Parents: Don't forget to have your student practice while they are on break. Pull a few Chinese resources off the Parent Portal or offer up a few math brain teasers in the midst of that holiday cheer!

Yu Ying will be CLOSED today, February 26th due to the continuing poor weather conditions.
Thank you to everyone who participated in #DoMore24!
We've been quiet on Facebook, but we've been quite busy at the school. Summer is here, but there is still a lot going on as Yu Ying prepares to welcome our FIRST(!) PreK-3 class next year. All of those new young learners need a place to learn and play, so we're hard at work to add new space and accommodate the new classrooms. Check back often for some updates as construction moves along.
DELAY FOR THE START OF SCHOOL MONDAY MORNING! The DC Water Utility recently notified us that it will be shutting off water at Yu Ying during the morning of Monday, June 16th. Unfortunately, we can't properly operate school without running water (and flushing toilets!). For this reason, we have to delay the start of school. On Monday, June 16th, Yu Ying classes will begin at 10:45 a.m. Students may arrive between 10:30 and 10:45 a.m. Before-care on Monday has been canceled. However, we expect that after-care will run during its regular times (3:30 to 5:45 pm). We will update you if the water utility's work takes longer than expected.
We will be having an early dismissal today - Wednesday 5-21-14 due to a partial power outage. Please make arrangements to pick up your child today at 1pm.
Great night had by all at the Gala! Stay tuned for pictures....
We've seen a bit of a flurry of recognition come in for student authors in the past few weeks! Madison M. was recently named the 5th grade winner in the Junior League of Washington Student Poetry Contest, with Dakota taking home an honorable mention. Then, on the heels of that big win, Madison B. took home sixth place in the Global Harmony Through Personal Excellence, Inc. Essay Contest. If you see these outstanding young authors, be sure to congratulation them on their hard work!
