Visitor/Security

All visitors are welcome to stay in the cafeteria. However, for other access throughout the school, you must have either a school ID badge or visitor badge. The School ID badge will be scanned at the security desk. In order to obtain your visitor badge, you will need to state your purpose for access and are required to sign in at the office and wear visitor’s badge. Our security monitors have been instructed to question anyone not wearing a badge. This is to ensure the safety of ALL students and anyone in the school from danger.


Student Pickup

Any parent or guardian who has to pick up his/her child should notify the teacher in advance. We ask that parents be respectful in class and avoid disruption of class by waiting for your child in the cafeteria and NOT in the class. Please help us by insuring you arrive 10 minutes before dismissal time (12:15PM). Thank you!

1/10/2018 NBA Taiwan Heritage Night -National Anthem and YoYo Performance

Super proud of FCS YoYo Team’s amazing performance in Barclays Center during a NBA game, Nets vs. Raptors on 1/8/2018 Taiwanese Heritage Night. Fidelity Chinese School was so fortunate to be invited again after last year’s successful national anthem performance. During the winter break, these performers spent their valuable time together practicing, creating choreography based on “I love Taiwan” theme while showing their awesome skills. Special thanks to Fidelity Alumnus Brian Chin for creating the wonderful choreography, Derek Hsu and Kevin Lam for leading the performance. Amongst 11 performers, 7 of them have won New Jersey YoYo competitions in the past. The participants are, Brian Chin, Kevin Lam, Derek Hsu, Preston Peng, Jonathan Yuen, Jared Chiou, Alexander Tai, Aaron Lee, Brian Lo, Roy Lai, and Tyler Chen.

    

After last year’s successful national anthem performance, FCS was invited again to perform the national anthem. This year, the choir was led by Katherine Ho and FCS alumni Faith Liu who was kind enough to delay her flight to direct the choir. In addition to FCS Choir members, we were so honored to have MasterChef finalist Jason J. Wang to join us from Boston. Not only Jason was a chef, he is also a professional classical singer.
