THE 5 STARS
From Ms. Okano our Grade 3&4 teacher: Our current unit is Who We Are: Introducing Me, and this activity was an inquiry into physical form and appearance. We measured our head circumference, height, wingspan, and shoe size, and recorded our data. G 5/6 taught us how to measure accurately, and to use proper units (cm).
A message from our PTA about the recent fundraiser: Through recent events connected to Sports Day, we were able to raise close to 50,000¥ to support Kumamoto Earthquake Relief. The PTA has agreed to match this amount. Therefore, in total, TIS will contribute 100,000¥ to the ‘Kumamoto Earthquake’ relief efforts via the Association for Aid and Relief, Japan http://www.aarjapan.gr.jp/english/about/ I'm very happy that we are able to help these people that are passing through this difficult situation. I hope this money can give some relief to a few of them. Thank you very much for all your help. Sincerely, Soraya Gonzalez On Behalf of the TIS PTA
