    尊敬的华人社区朋友们:

     

    祝大家新年快乐!

    我们谨代表纽约首府华社及中文学校的全体工作人员向大家致以最真诚的问候和祝福,同时也向大家简要汇报最近一年多来的工作。

    2020年3月份始,新冠疫情阴霾黯黯,极大增加了开展各项工作的难度,但我们全体志愿者牢记服务社区的初衷,厉兵秣马,砥砺前行。

    抗疫初期,口罩和防护服等PPE急缺,我们审时度势,在社区志愿者的协助下,短短几周内募捐到抗疫善款6万余元,并快速从不同渠道采购到医疗防护具12万余件捐献到本地多个医疗机构、养老中心、老兵俱乐部、超市、餐馆等。这个过程中华人社区体现出来的共情、协作精神令人非常敬佩和感动:志愿者们分组讨论采购护具的渠道、质量、价格、周期,争取最大化地利用珍贵善款并以最快速度运送至急需的抗疫一线,发挥这些护具的最大效用。这一系列行动展示了华人关心社区,敢于担当,勇于奉献的精神面貌,为华人下一代树立了良好的榜样。

    虽有疫情阻挡,华社志愿者们在保障安全的前提下尽量保障各项社区活动有序进行。例如2020、2021两年皆参加万国节(FON - Festival of Nations)的所有三项(才艺,美食,Miss FON竞赛)节目,延续了华人社区作为这一活动的主要参与者传统。2021牛年线上春晚为70多个家庭送去了充满欢声笑语的浓浓节日气氛。还有许多其他活动在筹备之后,由于疫情反复不得不取消,例如2021年夏季烧烤大会,志愿者们实地考察了首府周边近十处公园场地并预定了其中之一,但却由于2021年8月份第二波疫情高峰来袭而取消,虽有遗憾,但并不沮丧,因为保障社区的健康安全而舍弃所付出的时间精力是值得的。 

    团结社区,同仇敌忾。针对仇恨亚裔犯罪,我们联系本地社区成员接受Times Union记者采访,参加电台节目等,让华人社区的声音通过报纸,广播等形式被更多人听到。同时邀请学者和社区成员一起交流华裔移民历史,讨论现状。在2021年3月22日Albany “Stop Asian Hate” rally的活动中,许多志愿者积极响应,制作了三百多面标语牌,带到游行现场分发,壮大了此次活动的声势。除了喊出我们的声音,也需准备必要的知识和技能保护自己,因此在Clifton Park Town Supervisor的帮助下,Saratoga County警长和他的助手们为社区举办了一期安全防护法律法规培训以及两期自我防护格斗技巧培训。

    与此同时,中文学校在校董事会、校长、PTA领导下,在所有老师和家长的积极协助下,有效应对疫情管控需求所带来的挑战,2020年三月份疫情爆发初期,第一时间将线下课程转为线上授课,尽力保障授课质量和学生的学习进度。在莫琳校长的领导下,中文学校2020-21学年在被迫改为全线上授课的情况下,依然开展了各项课程共41门,包括22个中文课班级和19个兴趣班,招收学生超过230名。各项教学任务按计划实施并于学年末顺利完成,包括成功组织了AP网考,YCT网考和笔试。学校在2020-21学年克服种种困难将以往各项活动搬到网上,成功举办了网上的讲故事比赛,网络晚会以及参加2020新年中文文化大乐园冬令营活动等。2021-22学年,中文学校与Shaker Middle School合作,恢复了线下授课,提供了总共49门课程和俱乐部活动,吸引了总共288名学生和家长回归中文学校的实体教学授课和活动。在刚刚结束的2021秋季学期,在行政团队和PTA团队的密切配合和精心组织下,中文学校成功举办了讲故事比赛和圣诞新年演出,通过学生,家长和教职员工们的积极参与,持续在纽约首府华人社区里发挥着可观的影响力。在疫情不断出现反复的当下,中文学校的教师团队,行政团队和PTA团队密切配合,合理而有效地应对着各项挑战和处理各种风险,保证实体课教学和线下活动得以顺利进行。

    一路行来并非坦途,我们却时刻被鼓舞着,因为有无数社区志愿者的热心支持,有许多商家的慷慨赞助,有社区所有成员的关心,我们有信心遇山开路,逢水架桥,勇往直前。

    2022虎年春晚定于1月30日在SUNY Albany PAC举行,正在紧张筹备中,欢迎大家关注!

    祝朋友们新年快乐,2022一切顺利,愿疫情阴霾早日散去,大家都能回归正常生活,健康平安!
