“Dear students and staff of Shuren Ribet School, we appreciate the hospitality you have given us and hope that the relationship between our two schools continues and grows over time. All of us had a wonderful time interacting with you. Thank you for having us in your beautiful facility and for allowing us into your classrooms to learn more about your culture and history. We enjoyed going to all the local sites that are important to China. Thank you for taking the time to make food for us. To the students who let us into your houses, we thank you for doing so. Thank you to the many people who set this trip. It opened many doors for us and let us see the world in a new perspective. We hope the students coming to America enjoy themselves as much as we have enjoyed ourselves over here. In all, thank you to everyone who has spent their time with us and made this experience happen. ”

The students of Oak Creek East Middle School joined the Shuren Ribet family for two weeks; as they studied Chinese, Chinese watercolor painting, dance, calligraphy, they learned about our culture, and spent an entire weekend with our Shuren students at their homes. In addition, they have also visited Beijing Hutongs, the Forbidden City, Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven and many more ancient as well as modern cites and museums. They have become fans of all the different types of Chinese foods and even experts at eating Hotpot!
Just 10 days after the departure of our new friends, a group of our middle and high school students packed up their bags and took off for Oak Creek, Wisconsin. To track the exciting activities of their visit, please visit the Shuren-Oak Creek site.
