In school Chinese New Year Performance this Sunday 2/8

NCLS EC and PCC will host Chinese New Year Performance at Day school auditorium at the 2nd floor starting from 1:30 pm this Sunday. You are very welcome to attend this significant event. The entrance is free.  If your child is performing at this event, you can contact your child’s class teacher to get the performing time.

Day School Facilities

Recently we have received several complain emails from Day School teachers regarding removing of 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.  In addition,  we would like to remind everyone that the computers at the library cannot be used.

Parking problem

We have repeated the school parking rule many times. However,  recently, we found more cars without school parking tag parked inside Day School.  This is unacceptable. If this issue continues, the illegal parked cars will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Writing Competition

Congratulations to NCLS students  唐牧阳 and 周泽旭 for wining 儿童组Writing Competition for this year.  Please see detailed report in this link:
