Greeting from our New President
Hello- I am Kumiko Dorrio. I am the new Parents Association’s president for the school year 2014-2015. We are a group of mothers whose children love KNI very much, and we as mothers have a passion to help out our kids’ school and teachers in any way possible. Each and all the class mothers accepted my request to become one of the class mothers without any hesitation. I would love to use my last two years of class mother experience to help and improve our KNI, and change this position from “ Tough job” to “Fun job” with all the other class mother members through this school year.
Now, we are going to try two new ideas for this school year. Let us introduce those
ideas to you …
The 1st idea is our new KNI Parents’ Association’s email address which we've already mentioned at our entrance ceremony. Our new e-mail address is kodomonoie.pa.@gmail.com
From now on, we are going to send our news and letters from this e-mail address to you all.
Please feel free to use this e-mail system and ask us any questions, concerns or ideas to improve school … Anything. You name it!
The 2nd idea is starting our Christmas Pageant volunteer Team. We are looking for
some volunteer photographers, sound controllers, lights controllers and Christmas Pageant DVD creators and editors. Please help us out so that we can succeed with this event and our children can have a wonderful experience.

From the Fundraiser
The New school year 2014-2015 has begun. Please keep supporting us with the “KNI Fundraiser Program” this year again.
We kicked off our fundraising right away, at the start of the school year, with our 1st “Aspire-Catalogue Order”. Has everybody been able to participate?
Pretty soon, we are going to start our 2nd Fundraiser sale “KNI Special T-shirts/Sweatshirts” sale. Everybody new to KNI, please do not miss out! This is the chance to get your children our special school goods.
Let us ask you all to help KNI with our recycling program. We would collect Aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. We apologize for not accepting any glass bottles. We also only collect plastic bottles with “CA CRV” sign.
