Aside from the regular clubs, we hold big events for the students and teachers on major Chinese and Western holidays. For example, this year on Halloween, we designed several activities for students to know the origin of Halloween and its historical and cultural implications. (Link for Halloween 2014) We also hold the Spirit Week, a common week-long morale boosting event at American high schools; to educate students on how to work as a team, solidify their identification with the school spirit of Kinglee and to nurture their creative impulse. Multicultural day is another innovative event on this campus. With this event, the students get to know the history, culture, language, arts and literature of different countries through performances, exhibitions and impersonations. ?

We also implement regular academic related events for the students: Spelling Bee and Science Fair. For Spelling Bee, students sharpen their spelling skills and expand their vocabulary through a friendly spelling competition. In Science Fair, students demonstrate their knowledge of the sciences or showcase their new ideas about inventions in the fun format of a ground fair. Science fair prepares those students who develop great interests in the sciences to cultivate the abilities to present their ideas in poster sessions.

In order to allow students to develop leadership and self-governance, we help them organize two student governing bodies—KSLC (Kinglee Student Leadership Committee) and Student Council. Respectively in charge of student-led affairs on the Chinese side and the international side, the two governing student bodies are both formed through campaigns and elections. That way, students can be initiated into the democratic process of decision making and governance. They can further develop leadership, teamwork, discussion and debate skills in implementing various student-led events. In the past, they have organized a fair to raise fund for the Hope Project to help rebuild an elementary school after the devastating earthquake in Sichuan in 2009. They have also mobilized fellow students to help teach underprivileged children in Sichuan by designing their own lesson plans, making teaching props, and introducing American culture. They will continue to organize various academic or non-academic activities in the future, such as a Halloween masquerade party, a basketball competition, a model United Nations assembly or a student creative writing competition.

We also plan various field trips for students to learn in more relaxed and fun ways. For example, we have led groups of students to California to visit various U.S. college campuses. They learned about the U.S. higher educational system as well as the multicultural social fabric of California. Through these campus visit trips, they have had great opportunities to connect what they learned in U.S. textbooks with actual experiences. In addition to international field trips, we plan local as well as national field trips. For example, we brought students to the Department of Municipal Development in Zhengzhou for them to get a picture of how the city develops and how this pattern of development is reflective of the history and changing socio-economic contours of the Henan province. Through the introduction of both international and local field trips, we hope to expand the scope of academic learning by bringing in observations and experiences.
