The Association of Northern California Chinese Schools (ANCCS) sponsors this Chinese New Year Poster Contest to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New. The lunar new year theme and the hands-on activity are a good way to carry forward this traditional festivity. Participants are encouraged to integrate every shred of knowledge they have acquired of this festive event of the Chinese new year, whether it be teachings from their teachers or parents, sounds and sense from movies, video clips, or whatever seen or heard and express these on the posters they design. It is our hope that through the participation of this activity, our students will know more about and identify more with the Chinese culture. Not only will they learn more about Chinese lunar new year, but also they can apply and develop their interest and skills in arts and crafts as well as design.
Registration Deadline: From now to 1/25/2015

Welcome back to Chinese school. We hope your first
day of school went smoothly. There are a
few updates and reminders that we would like to share with you:
1.The 4th period elective classes will
start on this Saturday (9/13), classroom map is available. There are a few classes still open for
enrollment (dancing, public speech, and calligraphy), please contact our
registrar for enrollment (room 210) during the school hours if you are
interested in signing up class for your kids.
2.Our school’s Burlingame office lease will mature
this year. The board has decided not to
renew the lease and move all the office contents to a local storage. There are many BRAND NEW textbooks,
workbooks, and reference books stored in our Burlingame office that were overstocked
from the past order. Starting from this
Saturday, the school will host a book fair fundraising event during the school
hours. The fund raised will be used for
our office moving expenses. Please stop
by and check on those books displayed in the courtyard outside of room 210. These will be useful supplement materials for
your kids’ Chinese learning.
3.If you are a new family to NPMS and have not chosen
your service date, please contact our registrar in room 210 during the school
hours to sign up. The school needs your
help and involvement, plus you will receive $50 tuition offset in your next
4.The Hillsdale High School has reiterated their NO
FOOD/DRINK ALLOWED IN CLASSROOM AND HALLWAY policy. Please advise your kids to consume food or
drink in the courtyard, and use school facilities with care. We hope to maintain our rapport with HHS so
that our classrooms rental will be uneventful.
NPMS will start on
this coming Saturday (9/6). Please review the classroom map in advance so
that you can find your kids’ classrooms readily on the first day of school.
teachers and all the school admin members have been working hard to ensure your
child(ren) embark on a fruitful and rewarding Chinese learning
trip. As you know that the administrative duties at NPMS are solely
operated by a group of devoted parent volunteers who spare their time to help
after dropping off their kids. Hence, it can be expected that on the
first day of school there might be some tasks untended, some of
your questions unanswered promptly, and some of your needs unfulfilled immediately. However,
please be patient and accommodating should any of the above
arises. If you have been in this school for long, please help other
junior families if you can. Together we work, the school will move
on more smoothly and the
campus will become more attractive to our students.
If you happen to be
the room parent before, please stop by your kid’s class after you drop him/her
off and ask the teacher to see if they need any help on distributing the
textbook. Certain classes are large in size; handling
textbooks/workbooks/digital media could be quite labor intensive, so please
help if you can.
Last but not least,
safety is the number one priority in our campus. Please drive
or walk with caution in the parking lot. Hope you all have a
pleasant and safe experience at NPMS. We need parents to help direct traffic during the rush hours, if
you can help, please inform us.
