From Event Committee Chairs
Time goes so fast and it is November already…Our Event Committee chairs have started working on two of the biggest events at KNI, that is KNI Christmas Party
in December, and Omochitsuki (Mochi Pounding Festival)
in January. All KNI parents, let’s work hard together to give our children memorable experiences!
We will ask for contributions for these two events soon. We will post the sign-up sheets for contributions next to the attendance sheets. Please have a look and we would appreciate your contributions!

How to Order
: Please fill out the Scrip order form and put it in a designated box with a check. Scrip gift cards are great for your Christmas shopping and/or Christmas gifts. This is our biggest fund raising event. Our goal is to raise 20% of the PTA’s total fund (about $1,000)
and 100% participation
. No contribution is too small. We hope all KNI families will participate! We will announce names of the top 5 contributors in this fundraiser. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, please contact Mrs. Davis (email@example.com).
Recycling is one of our most important fund raising activities. We are collecting the following in the recycle container at back left of the school yard:
1) Plastic Recycle Symbol #1-7 bottles
(By the way, what we call “pet bottles” in Japanese refers to Recycling Symbol 1 bottles.)
2) Aluminum Cans
Please rinse all the bottles before you bring them to school.
Awesome Playground Fundraiser
Awesome Playground is owned and run by one of KNI students’ family, Jimmy Osorio’s family. Awesome Playground will contribute 25% of the total sales to KNI PTA. This time, 10 visit pack ($60) and 5 visit pack ($30) are offered for sale to KNI families. Don’t miss this great opportunity for your child and your child’s school!
If you have not paid PTA membership fee, please give your membership fee in cash to your Class Mother.
