NWCS Newsletter – Week 2

Dear NWCS families,It was great to see you all at the opening assembly.  In the next week or two, we will continue to get every student placed in the right class after some try out sessions.  Please be reminded to turn in summer homework to get credited for 10 raffle tickets!

Registration – Classes and Electives

Language Classes - Some of you may not have the time to complete the registration yet, please take a moment and log on to NWCS web site and complete the enrollment process.  As teachers evaluate their classes, we will let families know if any changes are recommended.  If your child(ren) speaks with you about the current level being too difficult or too easy, please let your teacher, Dean, and myself know so that we can assess right away.

Electives - We offer culture electives in the 3rd hour.  Please encourage your kids to visit and sign up.  If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact our registrar, Mr. David Chan, at registrar@nwcsny.org.

Tutor Room Change - The 3rd hour tutoring session will be located at the ART room on 1st floor.  We have a regular tutor for the hour.
Be part of the NWCS community volunteer network.  We encourage parents to join breakfast club, school custodian, or class parents and help school with day to day operation.  Our collective contribution will make a difference to our students and the community!

Starting this semester, we will run one pilot program for encourage more class participation and at home practice.  For pre-k to 3rd grade classes, each student will be given a communication booklet or similar by class teachers.  This booklet will be used by teachers to communicate with parents about in-class progress, homework assignment, reward sticker collection, etc.. We also prepare lots of goodies for our students to redeem their sticker rewards at our school Reward Station.  I also like to invite parent involvement to promote good learning habit development at home.  If you think your kid(s) has done an excellent Chinese school work at home this week, please write a short note to class teacher, your child(s) will get one extra sticker towards his/her reward collection.  I am looking forward to seeing many students come to our reward station to exchange their favorite prize!
