– In school Chinese New Year Performance this Sunday 2/7

-Day School Library and classroom Issues
I would like to circulate the latest email received from Day Middle school regarding to some library issues they found. Please follow the school rules and don’t leave any newspapers and water bottles at library, cafeteria, classrooms, gym and other public places. If the same issues happen in future, the newspapers will be discontinued to supply. And all computers at library are not allowed to use based on the agreement between NCLS and Day middle school.
‘I’d like to ask your cooperation in keeping the Day library neat. This morning I had to spend at least 20 minutes moving furniture back in to place and throwing out Chinese newspapers and water bottles, time I would rather have spent working with my students.
Please make sure to leave the furniture in the same arrangement you find it in, and ask your parents to clean up after themselves.’
In addition to the library issue we received last Sunday, we have received several complaining emails from Day School teachers regarding to removing the classroom materials and not putting desks and chairs into original position. NCLS admin and board took these cases very seriously. If we do not follow the classroom maintenance rules, our classrooms will be taken away. Please keep reminding your child to help maintain the classroom condition.
