  • Dec 7th: TEST DAY!! 11 am or 2 pm

Click “More” for reminders & the weekly challenge! Rule Reminder: Never ask to test. Instead, ask what you need to do in order to be ready to test. ALL tests at NWSMA are comprehensive–meaning, you will be tested on previous ranks’ material. Sensei says: if you learn and forget, you have not really learned.

Weekly Challenge: Please review your requirements sheet. Know your Korean or Japanese vocabulary! Make flashcards if you’re just starting to learn. Have a family member or friend quiz you if you’ve already learned it.

Weather Cancellation Policy Reminder: If school gets cancelled in the Stanwood-Camano school district due to weather, NWSMA classes will also be cancelled. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook & our Twitter. Not all of our students live in Stanwood-Camano. Please don’t take risks to get to class if the weather is different where you are.

We welcome feedback on our website and our teaching! Feel free to email us if you have a comment or question.
