NWCS Fall 2017 Newsletter – Week 9

Dear NWCS families,
 
Thank you all for participating in the fire drill! We are grateful to receive guidance from former New York City EMS chief, Mr. MacNeil Cross (aka Evan’s dad), on this exercise. While we successfully completed the evacuation within five minutes, we’ve identified a few areas for improvement in our post drill review. We plan to conduct another drill in the spring to reinforce the school safety and emergency evacuation protocol. 
 
NWCS students won 1st place and honorable mentions at regional Chinese Calligraphy competition
Congratulations to our high schooler 林詠雯, Rebecca Lim, for winning the 1st  place award in Chinese Calligraphy competition organized by ACS Region 2 schools. Two other entries from 朱莉雅 Juliet Weglarz, and 陳運華 Derek Tan received honorable mentions. The award ceremony will be held in Stamford, CT on November 18. The long winning streak in recent years reflects not only the academic excellence of our students, but also the dedication of our Calligraphy teacher, 沈道茜老師, Ms. Daisy Rose. A sincerely thank you from all of us to you 沈老師!!
