- OR, to print out the form and pay by check please use the Printable PDF Form
If you have any questions or problems with the online payment option, e-mail email@example.com.
A description of the various activiy fees and contributions is provided below.
Note: Field trip costs will be collected separately by the teachers during the school year. These requests will be sent home with the child’s permission slips.
CLASSROOM ACTIVITY FEES – Mandatory for each student:
1. Activity Fees – Activity fees are collected to fund XinXing classroom parties during the school year.
2. Time for Kids Magazine Subscription – 3rd and 4th Grade Students Only. This magazine is used as part of the English curriculum. After use in class, students will take the magazine home to share with parents.

Please note that your child will be participating in a classroom project that will be auctioned off at the Longevity Event in April. Proceeds will benefit the BeiDouXing Cultural Fund. Previous projects have included handprint artwork, student-written storybooks, student personalized pottery, etc. If you have any questions or do not want your child to participate in the classroom project, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Teacher Appreciation – There is also a suggested donation for teacher appreciation (this covers both holiday and end-of-year). These donations are listed with a suggested amount, but feel free to include whatever amount you feel comfortable contributing.
PARENT DIRECT DONATIONS:
Many parents have approached us and asked about making direct donations to BeiDouXing to help cover the cost of our programs. Your Direct Donation is an easy way to contribute, and to ensure that we can provide the programs that make XinXing such a great place for our children to learn and grow. BeiDouXing provides funds for XinXing classroom and curriculum enhancement, community building, and vital cultural support.
BeiDouXing hosts several family-friendly events, including the BeiDouXing Chinese New Year Festival, Summer Play Dates, and the XinXing Family Picnics. We provide our BeiDouXing Directory to all families. We have provided classroom grants to the XinXing teachers to help with classroom enhancement, as well as donations to the Media Center for Chinese books and to the Eisenhower Music Department for Chinese musical instruments and educational materials. BeiDouXing has provided funding for Chinese field trips for the XinXing classrooms. We helped fund school-wide Chinese cultural events to build community within our school. BeiDouXing is also looking to the future by planning and supporting an annual 8th grade cultural exchange trip.
Please note that your employer may offer a matching program and this is a great way to contribute additional funds to the school. BeiDouXing is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization, so your Direct Donation may be tax deductible. Please check with your tax advisor for details. A receipt for your Direct Donation amount will be mailed to you for tax purposes.
