Dear NWCS families,

歡迎大家來到北威中文學校! We are so happy to have you as part of the NWCS community! This Saturday, September 16th,​​ is the first day of ​Chinese ​school​ for the Fall 2017 semester.​ ​Please ​s​​​ee below for a few important announcements.
​​
Open assembly
We will start school’s opening assembly at 9am sharp in the middle school gym. Kindly remember to pick up a welcome packet for your family which contains important information relevant to the school. Students will meet their respective teachers and then walk to the classrooms together. We aim to have the students in their classrooms by 9:15am after reviewing school safety policy and classroom etiquette. Break as usual is at 10am and our languages classes end at 11 am. All students are encouraged to take or tour the electives from 11am to noon.

​​Open House
We will also hold an open house from 10-11am for prospective families. Here is the brochure for the open house.
​​Extra Credit Homework for all: ​kindly post the open house banner on your facebook, snapshot, or other social media groups you belong to. ​Please also print out copies of the fliers and hang them on public bulletin boards. Help NWCS spread the word!
​​
Be our class parent
Each teacher has been asked to elect a class parent to help with events coordination and school communication chain. Please consider nominating yourself! This school depends on volunteers. Your active participation would be greatly appreciated.

​​Summer homework assignment
In preparation of the first day of class, kindly remind the kids to finish their summer work assignments and review what was learnt last year. For kids that have completed their summer homework assignments, they will be awarded 10 raffle tickets (pending teacher’s verification).
