September News


This letter is only in English, but I hope that can google translate this letter. If you have any questions, please see Aiko or Masumi. Thank you!

Dear Parents,

I hope you are enjoying a restful summer. School started today and it is wonderful to see everyone back! We welcome two new students, one girl in 1st grade, Hsin Yuan Peng and one girl in 8th grade, Shiori Watanabe. Please help them and their parents feel welcome to our school.

The teachers at NLIS have prepared for a great fall full of activities to help make our students' learning more motivating and fun. On September 16, we are having our annual Camp Day. This is a day where we do a variety of hands-on learning activities with a camp theme. The teachers will put “fireflies” (white lights) on the gym walls, set up canopy tents in the gym, and have a wonderful time by turning off the lights and reading under the tent cover with flashlights. Every class will rotate the facilities and play learning games, sing camp songs, roast marshmallows, and eat s'mores. S'mores are a yummy cookie that when one eats some, he or she wants "some more". I hope that you can bring the checked ingredient for your child's class. The s'more letter is attached to this one. Thank you very much in advance.
