三人之行,必有我师 Teacher Appreciation – A new PTA tradition starts next Saturday!
无论社会再发达,老师历来是中国文化里最受到尊敬的职业。才子满天下又是老师一生中最值得骄傲的荣誉和财富。PTA代表全校的学生和家长,在下星期六为我们辛苦耕耘了一年的老师们准备了可口的咖啡点心和三明治 (10:30-12:30),以此表达我们发自内心的感激,说声 谢谢你了,老师!” This year PTA decided to start a new school tradition. We will be organizing a Teacher Appreciation brunch to express our heartfelt thanks to all the NWCS teachers for their hard work and teach our children every Saturday, rain or shine.  Teachers, please come to enjoy a relaxing moment with some delicious food and drinks at the PTA desk from 10:30 – 12:30. PTA Leads, please inform your teacher and come to be your teacher’s host. If you have any questions or want to help, please contact or for the Seattle campus.
请尽快购买超市礼卷 First come first serve – All remainder gift certificates will be sold by June 1st
PTA为班级筹款的途径之一就是销售本地几家华人商场的礼卷, 每张面额的5%会回到购买者相应的班费作为活动经费。随着学年底的到来,本学年度的礼卷销售也将随之结束。为了增加你孩子班里的活动经费,请在6月一日前到PTA值勤处购买你需要的礼卷,先到先得,售完即止。
One of the ways for PTA to raise funds for class activities is through the sale of gift certificates from local Chinese supermarkets, whereby 5% of the face value of the certificates go to the class designated by the buyer.  As the school year comes to a close, so does the sale of store gift certificates.  To increase the amount of class fund for your children's class, please come to the PTA parent-on-duty desk to purchase the gift certificate that you need by June 1.  The gift certificates are on a first-come, first-served basis, but are gone when all is sold.
