Dear NCLS Parents:
Thanks to the cooperation of all NCLS teachers, parents and students, thanks to the help from members of Board and PCC and parent volunteers, we have had a very successful fire drill this past Sunday. All people in the building were evacuated within five minutes after the alarm was sounded. All our students left the building in an orderly manner and stayed with their teachers. Good job!
The classrooms have been kept in much better shape last Sunday. Your attention and effort on this matter are highly appreciated. Please keep reminding your children that, do not bring food and snacks into classrooms, and do not throw snack bags in the trash cans inside the classrooms to cause misunderstanding. And please sharp your children’ pencils before coming to school, so they are able to focus on the learning and won’t leave pencil debris in the classrooms.
Following we have a few announcements regarding to our school activities:
