NWCS Spring 2018 Newsletter – Week 13

Dear NWCS families, 大家好,

I want to thank everyone, especially the staff and teachers for making our last week’s open house a success!
Some of the class posters were amazing. Great job teachers and students!!
Will share a link to the photos on the school website soon.

​​End of Year Celebration
June 23rd, next Saturday, will be our last day of school. There will be no third hour elective classes. To celebrate a wonderful year of learning Chinese, everyone is invited to join us in the cafeteria after 10:30am for some sweets and finger foods. If you want to help, please sign up to bring drinks, baked goods or appetizers this week!

​​Trophy Pick Up Help Request
The speech contest trophies are ready and we need a volunteer to picked them up from Flushing on Friday June 14th. Please let me know if you can help bring them to the school on Saturday!
Dragon Boat Festival
Monday June 18th is 端午節, Chinese Dragon Boat Festival. ​It​ commemorates the patriotic poet Qu Yuan, 屈原 (340-278 BC), and also acts as a chance for Chinese people to build their bodies and dispel diseases. To celebrate this cultural​ ​festival, our silk knotting and origami teachers will be showcasing paper zongzi (粽子) ornament making in the cafeteria. We will have DIY kits for sale if you want to participat​e! ​See below for a picture of the finished DIY project.

Your principal,
Francine Fang 方敏
