From the Sports Day Event Committee
The upcoming Sports Day Festival
on May 20th
is the third and last of Kodomo no Ie’s major events for the year. Preparations for the big event are now getting under way. The event committee has already been in touch with parents who signed up at the beginning of the year to volunteer. If you previously signed up but haven’t heard from us, please let your class mother know. Detailed information on volunteer activities will be provided later on by event committee members and class mothers for each class.
The Sports Day Festival is Kodomo no Ie’s biggest event and requires the help of many parents to succeed. If you joined Kodomo no Ie mid-year or have finished other volunteer activities and are willing to lend more help, we want to hear from you.
Most volunteers are only expected to help with a portion of the day’s sporting events, so please have some fun and join us. Event committee members and class mothers will also be reaching out to parents. Your help is much appreciated.
Join us to create an exciting day of great memories for everyone!
