Fairfield Prep encourages all students to attend a cultural experience event in celebration of the Chinese New Year on February 13, 2018.

From 9:20-11:40 a.m., students are welcome to come to the Brissette Gym where there will be a number of special cultural activities put on by the Prep international students and International Student Advisor Lina Gallinelli, and sponsored by AIEP Host Families. These activities include Chinese musical performances, lessons on how to use chopsticks and demonstrations on how to say “Happy New Year” in Chinese.

There will also be light refreshment, such as egg rolls and dumplings. For more information on the entire event, click the above image for a PDF detailing more about the Chinese New Year.

Students: Wear a red tie or shirt and you’ll have a chance to win a gift!

Prep Pride Campus Store is offering a 10% discount on every red item during the Chinese New Year experience.

November Newsletter: The latest from Prep

By Li Na Gallinelli

Hello Prep Parents 家长们你们好,


Fall sports seasons are moving to a close, the fall play is ready for the stage and Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend - all signs of change as we move toward the middle of the academic year and the holiday season ahead. In fact, as you read this email teachers are formulating their first quarter grades which will be viewable to you this Friday with Parent's Night scheduled for November 16th. As we meet with students at all levels we will be counseling them to review their first quarter grades and to set goals for their second quarter. We also remind them of our upcoming midterm exams in December, and of their importance.


秋季体育赛季已接近尾声, 学校小剧场演出也准备就绪, 本周末夏令时间即将结束,年末的各种假期也将陆续到来。 所有这些变化都说明我们正进入本学年中期阶段了。 当你阅读这封电子邮件时,老师们正在更新第一季度的学习成绩,下周星期五11月16日将召开全校家长会。每次大学顾问与学生见面时,都会提醒他们别忘了回顾第一季度的学习成绩,是否已设定第二季度的学习目标和方向。很快我们将迎来非常重要的学期中考。 家长和同学们都准备好了吗?
