NWCS Newsletter: Start of School Welcome – Fall 2018

Dear NWCS families,

歡迎大家來到北威中文學校! This Saturday, September 15th, is the first day of Chinese school for the Fall 2018 semester. It also marks the 50th anniversary of Northern Westchester Chinese School. We are so happy to have you in our NWCS community for this momentous year! Over the past five decades, we have educated thousands of students from Pre-K to 12th grade. I also want to take this moment to salute our current and previous deans, teachers, board members, and staff for their contributions to our school and for laying the foundation for our continued success.

In preparation for the first day of school, please see 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.

Electives
Electives are great way to meet students from other classes, learn something new, and do something fun. All students are welcomed to take or tour the electives from 11am to noon. I especially encourage the younger grades kids to sign up for our electives!

Open House
We will also hold an open house from 10-11am for prospective families. Here is the info 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).

You can find the 2018-2019 school calendar here. If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact our registrar, Mr. David Chan, at registrar@nwcsny.org or me.

Best Regards,
Francine Fang 方敏
