CLIP Tours Registration Open Now!

CLIP Tours are coming up! Help us raise community awareness about the Cupertino Language Immersion Program, and encourage parents you know who are in the CUSD to sign up and learn more. CLIP Tours are in January and February.  These tours are mandatory for new parents applying to the CLIP alternative program in the Cupertino Union School District and are a great step to learning what CLIP is and how children would benefit from immersion education in Mandarin.

You can print a flyer and distribute it to places like libraries, grocery stores, pre-schools that your younger children attend, and any other locations you think might help.  The flyer can be downloaded here:
The CLIP Tour dates are:

ASEP Winter Showcase

The ASEP (After School Enrichment Program) Winter Showcase was held last Friday, Dec 8.  It was a wonderful time of performances from our ASEP students.  The show included Chinese drums, wushu, lion dance, Chinese dance and more!  Thanks to all our instructors, class coordinators and parent volunteers for a successful evening!  

Holiday Greetings from Principal Coleman

Hello CLIP Community,

I consider myself an optimist, however, there is a lot of evidence to suggest the best is yet to come for CLIP and something I firmly believe, regardless of my positive nature. In the Fall of 2018, CLIP will enter into it's 20th year of existence, a tremendous milestone and something to certainly celebrate. In addition, we have also started the discussion with our new Superintendent, Dr. Baker, about CLIP moving to their own site.  Engaging you all in that process will prove to be a rewarding experience that I'm certain will ignite a warm feeling of pride that could firmly establish the future of CLIP for years to come. Thank you all for your generosity, commitment, and partnership in helping ensure that CLIP continue as the premier Mandarin language immersion program in the country.

On a personal note, many of you are aware that Serena and I have been fostering two sons (ages 5 and 8) for the last 8 months. This calling has humbled us and at the same time …
