NWCS Spring ’22 – Newsletter, Week 2 (03/12/22)

ear NWCS Families,
It looks like we are going to have some wet weather Saturday morning.  Teachers have been informed to communicate with students/parents if the class teacher would like to move from in-person to remote due to weather concerns in the afternoon.  Please check email communication directly from the class teacher.  Chinese school will be open for in-person sessions this weekend!
School Registration Record
There was a small technical issue with our school enrollment system before the semester started.  Now, the system has been fixed and functioning properly.  Please sign in and check if your child’s/children’s enrollment record(s) are correctly reflected in the system.  Also, if any tuition balance is still outstanding, please take a moment to double check with Treasurer (Mrs. Grace Liu).  Soon, we will start working on the financial planning for the new calendar year.  Your help is much appreciated.
Some Events in Future Calendar
(1). Briarcliff Middle School is chosen to host NYSSMA music festival on the weekend of 4/2 & 4/3 & school building will not be available for Chinese School.  We will conduct remote learning that weekend
(2). The annual ACS Conference will be held on 5/28 & 5/29 (Memorial Weekend) in-person in East Brunswick, NJ this year.  There are several competitive events related to language and culture for students (different age groups) as well as seminars for teachers to participate.  We will work with class teachers on nomination and organization.  Application deadline is 4/17.
