After finishing the Sports Day
The bad weather leading up to the sports day made us worried about how the weather would turn out on Sports Day. However, it was a beautiful day. The day that the kids eagerly looked forward to was a great success and is now over.
This success was the result of all the help from the weekday and Saturday school classes and all of the parents and teachers. It took help from everyone to get all the jobs done, such as setting up the tents, delivering bento lunch boxes, and preparing and cleaning all the equipment and props. The high school student helpers also worked very hard all day long. A special thanks to Kei Orzorio for building the entrance gate, to Ms. Pierce for providing all the music, and to Yuki Inoue for translating everything from Japanese to English.
Thank you very much for making red and white otedama balls this year. The kids enjoyed their new otedama balls for “Tamaire.” Also a special thanks to Madoku Kongo, who began planning for this Sports Day event since before spring break. Without all of the help from everyone, we wouldn’t have had such success with all of our school events. Thank you so very much.
Remembering This Last Year I have had a lot of opportunities to meet new people this past year. All the PTA helpers were wonderful moms who are glad their children and their families are a part of Kodomo No Ie. Everyone I worked with was positive, supportive, and helpful to each other. I have learned a lot and realized that part of what makes Kodomo No Ie so wonderful is the help and support of our dedicated parents. I’m very excited to continue another year in my job, to meet a new group of moms and helpers, and to continue working with families that have been with us. Thank you again and please keep supporting our school.
