NWCS Newsletter Week 2 (9/18) – Fall’21

Dear NWCS Families,
It was so nice to see many of you back to school in person.  Like to use this opportunity to welcome new families to join NWCS as well.  The planning for opening day was crazily busy, but the work was definitely worth it to see our kids back in the classroom.  Thank you to all the volunteers for making this task look easy and smooth!  Few items I’d like to highlight for this week:
(1). Next Tuesday (9/21/21) is the mid autumn festival (中秋節) according to the Chinese lunar calendar.  We will prepare some mooncakes at the breakfast club for sale.  Please make sure to stop by to get your favorite mooncake.
(2). With students fully returning to public school this fall, we can not let our guards down with COVID.  Please continue to follow COVID guidelines (sent in the first week communication) when entering into school building and exercise social distance in class and during intermission.  If anyone doesn’t feel well, please stay home and inform the class teacher about your kid’s absence.
(3). We tried our best to organize the class according to students’ age and language proficiency.  First few weeks will be somewhat unsettling for some students, especially after months of remote learning.  Please feel free to work with the teacher on any concerns you might have.  If anything academic related, please feel free to reach out to me.
(4).  In order to provide a quality learning environment for our students, we need volunteers to help with areas like breakfast club (students’ favorite), parent duty coordination, and others.  If you like to get involved with helping the school, please don’t hesitate to contact me or other school members.
School calendar can be found on NWCS web site.
