Welcome to Northern Westchester Chinese School

Dear NWCS families,

歡迎大家來到北威中文學校!  Welcome to Northern Westchester Chinese School!

This Saturday, September 14th, is the first day of Chinese school for the Fall 2019 semester.  We are thrilled to have you join NWCS community for this year!  In preparation for the first day of school, please see below for a few important announcements.

Open Assembly

We will start school’s opening assembly at 9:00 am sharp in the middle school gym. Kindly remember to pick up a welcome packet for your family which contains important information relevant to the school. Students will meet their respective teachers and then walk to the classrooms together. We aim to have the students in their classrooms by 9:15am after reviewing school safety policy and classroom etiquette. Break as usual is at 10:00 am and our languages classes end at 11:00 am.


Electives are great way to meet students from other classes, learn something new, and do something fun. All students are welcomed to take or tour the electives from 11am to noon. I especially encourage the younger grades kids to sign up for our electives!

Open House

We will also hold an open house from 10-11am for prospective families. Attached are the information for the open house, school floor plan.

Extra Credit Homework for all:

kindly post the open house banner on your Facebook, snapshot, or other social media groups you belong to.  Please also print out copies of the fliers and hang them on public bulletin boards. Help NWCS spread the word!

Be our class parent

Each teacher has been asked to elect a class parent to help with events coordination and school communication chain. Please consider nominating yourself! This school depends on volunteers. Your active participation would be greatly appreciated.

Summer homework assignment

In preparation of the first day of class, kindly remind the kids to finish their summer work assignments and review what was learnt last year. For kids that have completed their summer homework assignments, they will be awarded 10 raffle tickets (pending teacher’s verification).


This school is run by parents like you and me.  We are here to create a language and culture environment for our children.  To enrich our students’ learning experience, please consider to volunteer and help school functions and activities.  To incentivize in teaching role, we just initiated a program this year to offer 50% discount in language course tuition if you decide to become a teacher at NWCS.  Please feel free to contact me regarding this program.

You can find the 2019-2020 school calendar here. If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact our registrar, Mr. David Chan, at registrar@nwcsny.org or me.

Your principal,

Rick Chan 詹文芳
