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
