Yinghua Alums and TandemPlus

On Thursday afternoons, Yinghua alumni and other Chinese immersion grads join U of M Chinese-speaking international students to practice their conversational skills through the U of M TandemPlus program. Discussion is in Mandarin Chinese and in English. Minnesota Public Radio shares the story of language connections via TandemPlus.

Snow Day Lunch Procedure

CKC Good Food, our school lunch provider, follows a procedure called “Shift Day” in the event of bad weather and an unexpected no-school day. If Yinghua has a snow day, the cancelled day’s menu shifts to the following day. Families who placed orders on days that are cancelled will receive credit in their Boonli accounts.
