NCLS Weekly Newsletter 22-Jan-2015

Dear Parents:

This coming Sunday, 1/25/2015 will be the 1st school day for spring semester of 2015.  If your kids are new students or your kids selected different class from previous semester, please make sure to bring your kids to the right classroom. You can check this link for classroom number:

– Classroom Maintenance

Recently we have been informed by Day School that one classroom will be closed permanently due to our students removing teacher’s classroom material at multiple occasions.  Although our teachers and the majority of students have tried very hard to maintain the classroom, we still found some students are not following the rules. This case is a big lesson and warning to all of us. While we requested all NCLS teachers stress the school rules to their classes during school time, we think it is necessary to have all parents remind your kids at home that we should not move any materials/ properties in the classroom that belong to Day School and keep the classroom as clean as we can.

-Spring semester registration

The registration for 2015 spring semester is still on. If you have any questions with regard to the registration, class, payment, etc., you can visit the school website or stop by library during school day.

-New classes

You can either send email to or come to the library to register this new class. We still have a few spots open for this class, please register as soon as possible.

2. Chyten classes:  Imagination Authors:  4th – 5th grade

Class Time: 12:30-1:45pm      Class Fee:  $265       Classroom: 218

If you would like to register your child to the classes, please come to the library to register.  This class is not shown in our system.

In Imagination Authors Chyten teachers foster a love of writing by helping students write and publish their own real book! Teachers continually guide the students, providing contextual lessons on writing techniques.  Chyten instructors then synthesize the collective works into one class-wide novel. Each class designs a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, settings and locales and plot twists. At the end of the course, the students receive their first real novel—published, bound and signed by our Imagination Authors.

A+ Program」通過21年的精英教學經驗與獨特的教學方法,並且嚴格根據各種能力考試(ISEE, SSAT,以及最新Common Core要求下的PARCC等考試)需求,制定了一套應對考試的完整課程,包括英語語言課程和數學課程。我們採用亞洲教學理念,融入美國教育制度及系統,並根據麻洲教育部對不同年級的最高標準,研發出一套能確切反應亞裔學生需求的英語寫作﹑閱讀及數學教育課程系統,其中高中課程更採用波士頓狀元高中 [波士頓拉丁學校] 的教材及教學內容。 

創始人Carl Nelson先生表示,凡是參加過該中心學習的學生,都能在學業上紮下堅實的基礎無論是參加波士頓高中會考、麻州會考或者SAT考試,都能夠獲得高分
