  • School will be open at 9:00 am in the morning of 1/11 for final hour rehearsal or class exam if any and the performances will start at 10:00am.
  • Rehearsals will begin this Saturday. We need volunteers to help with stage setup, performance orchestration, and session control. Please come by the high school auditorium to lend us a hand if you have not signed up yet. 
  • This week we will be continuing to sell luncheon and raffle tickets.  Please feel free to stop by cafeteria to purchase or let me know if you want me reserve tickets for you.
  • Show off your culinary skill at our Chinese New Year celebration luncheon – you are invited to sign up and bring your traditional dishes to share with everyone.
 
Come out and support our craft program
Our Chinese knotting teacher, Ms. Wang, and her students would like to invite everyone to stop by cafeteria and showcase their beautiful art work and raise funding for Chinese school.  They have been busy at work to prepare this event since beginning of the semester.  Many pieces of art work come from our students directly with teacher’s supervision.  Many items would make a wonderful addition to your holiday decoration.

NWCS Fall 2019 Newsletter – week 4 – Fire Drill Exercise

Dear Families,
Many thanks for your patience and cooperation with student movement from class to class over the past couple weeks.  As students settling down with their respective classes, we should be able to focus more on teaching and learning going forward.  Please encourage our children to spend some time learning/speaking Mandarin at home and utilize different resources like Apps, Internet to practice.
Fire Drill This Saturday
Every year, we have one fire drill exercise to make sure every staff and family know the evacuation route in case of emergency.  We will have a fire drill from 10:55-11:05 AM this Saturday (10/5). When complete, 3rd hour elective will resume normally.  The teachers will lead the students to the designated meeting area outside during the drill. All adults, including Chorus and Tai Chi members will also need to evacuate the school when the alarm bell rings. Please review the attached evacuation plan in advance, so that you are familiar with what your evacuation route is. There will be staff in the corridors to direct you to the right place, but it would be very helpful if you know where to go as well. We are aiming to complete the evaluation in less than 5 minutes so please help us make that happen.
