Dear all, it is me again :D I am currently applying to the graduate school in the U.S. I wonder whether it is good to send emails to supervisors that are having projects that I am interested in. If it is so, how should I organize the email so that I sounds polite as an outsider? :D

Try some variant of this:
"Hello, I'm <insert name here. I'm currently applying to graduate schools and was thinking about applying to <insert school name here>. Your work in <insert subject> is very interesting to me. Do you anticipate needing any new graduate students in the coming year?"
