Shu Ren’s Mission
Shu Ren is a nonprofit 501(c)3 supported through membership dues, grants, and fundraising activities to provide cross-cultural learning opportunities for MIP students and families at Woodstock Elementary School, Hosford Middle School, and Cleveland High School, although most events are open to the wider Portland immersion communities. Shu Ren is governed by a board of directors comprised of current MIP parents.
Goals of Shu Ren
Shu Ren’s main objective is to support and inform MIP students and families. Our events include general meeting workshops, the Dumpling Festival, and a Spring Event hosted by the 7th grade class. Parent groups organize a number of smaller initiatives throughout the year and Shu Ren provides fiscal management for funds raised. We also organize after-school Homework Help, advocate with PPS, provide grants to teachers for Chinese-related classroom supplies and field trips, and help organize the visit from our sister school in China.
