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.

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.
