At this time, we would like to encourage our parents to get involved, especially at the board and staff levels! For next year, we are looking for new Board Members, Registrar, and Treasurer

Annual Asian American Heritage Festival on June 2nd
Our school will host a booth at the AAH festival on 6/2. It is a fun event and we are seeking volunteers to be present at our booth. No special skills required, just be friendly and share your experience at NWCS. Free admission and parking!

Event: 21st Annual Asian American Heritage Festival
Date: Saturday, June 2, 2018
Time: 12 noon to 6 pm
Place: Kensico Dam Plaza, Valhalla, New York

The public is invited to bring family and friends to the Kensico Dam Plaza for an afternoon of entertainment featuring experts in traditional Asian dance and song and masters of the martial arts, including lion dancers. Professional artists share the stage with children’s dance troupes in beautiful traditional costumes. There will be plenty of activities for children such as face painting, calligraphy, Chinese paper cutting, Origami, and games.

One of the most popular of the ethnic cultural celebrations on Westchester County’s summer calendar, the Asian American Heritage Festival attracts as many as 5,000 residents each year. It is also a favorite showcase for small businesses and non-profits, featuring vendors selling Asian-themed cultural artifacts and handmade goods, agencies offering educational and health services and local chefs cooking up a wide array of Asian foods.
