-Classroom Management

Please confirm your  kid classroom number again from your personal account before you come and drop off your kid at classroom. The classroom teacher will count the name of whole class. If your kid is not on the list, he/she will be sent to library and you will have responsibility to help her/him to find the right classroom. Anyone without registration is not allowed to sit in the classroom.

Due to the limited seats in each classroom, parents are not encouraged to stay in class once the class started. Only the 1st class of school year allow parents sit in the class. For adult class, please don’t bring little kids inside and it will impact the whole class.

All students have to follow the classroom rule, respect teacher and TA. Touch and removal of the day school materials are not allowed.

-Book distribution

Thanks a lot for PCC great effort for delivering the text books to almost all classes. This coming Sunday,  PCC will continue deliver the rest of books. If your kid didn’t receive the text books, please come to library to pick up books. 

– Math Award

For students who won school math contest during last school year, but haven’t picked up your award, please come to library between 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm,to pick up your award from Zhao Lao Shi.

-Parking issues

With the school growing bigger and bigger, the traffic and parking impact on the local residents also become the huge concern. From the beginning of school day, we received quite a few complaints from the following streets, Linwood Ave, Churchill street and Albemarle Rd. During sport season, Albemarle rd parking lot always is very tight, if you can not find parking spot from there, you can park your car at Newton education department parking lot that is located the corner of Linwood ave and crafts street, and Carr school playground parking lot that is located between Linwood and Fair oaks ave, both parking lots are within walking distance to school.

Last Sunday, six cars were found parking inside school parking lot without teacher parking tag. We have stressed this rule many times that any cars without teacher parking tag won’t be allowed to park inside. The purpose we offer this privilege to teachers that allow them go to class on time, instead of struggling to find parking spot far away from building.

-Car pool

The heavy traffic during Sunday school time caused significant inconvenience to the local communities, in order to minimize this impact, we encourage  parents car pool to school, we believe your support will play significant role.

– NCLS Support Education Program Announcement
