NWCS has now been granted authority to administer the President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) to volunteers. The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition. Our school will form evaluation committee to discuss details about this matter soon. This will be our first year to administer the PVSA to volunteers. Recipients must be a United States citizen or a lawfully admitted permanent resident of the United States. Awards are issued for service hours served within a 12-month time period (bronze, silver, or gold) or over the course of a lifetime (Lifetime Achievement). And our school will verify volunteer hours required to earn award and distribute the awards package to volunteers at a special ceremony by the end of school year.
No matter it is rainy or sunny on Saturdays, we always see our warm-hearted parent volunteers busying directing the traffic at the area closer to the main school buildings. However, there is always some parents who only has his personal convenience in mind and will block the roundabouts or loading/unloading zone and cause a lot of headaches for other people. We could only solve this problem by taking the attitude of caring more about other people and putting ourselves in other people’s shoes. Please do not park your car at the roundabouts orloading/unloading zone (the area closer to the Main school building). Thanks for your cooperation!
