Dear NCLS parents,

Happy Chinese New Year!

As a part of our school traditions,  we will be distributing red envelops this Sunday, 1/29 at school to celebrate Chinese New Year! This year, your children will receive red envelops from their teachers for every class they attend from 1st class session to 3rd class session.

This coming Sunday is also the 1st day of spring semester. If you haven't register classes or pay the tuition, please do so by this Sunday.

Our Chinese New Year Gala will be tomorrow, 1/28 at Regis College. Hope to see you all there!

Warmest Regards,
Ben Xia, Principal

Chinese New Year Red Envelops
YAY! Your children will receive red envelop(s) from their teacher(s) this Sunday. All NCLS children's classes will be participating in the red envelop distribution program. For each class your children attend at NCLS, they will get 1 red envelop. The more classes they attend, the more red envelops they will get, and bring home more luck and fortune.
