Parents Association Board -- April 2016
From the Parents Association Bazaar
We were blessed with good weather on 3/12 and thankful that so many people attended. Our total sale was over $2500.
This year we received many donations from various companies and restaurants. We are truly grateful to those people who donated items, meals, baked goods and craft. We would also like to thank all the parents and the volunteers. This event would not have been as successful without everyone’s support.
The proceeds from the bazaar will be used to purchase something for the school in the end of the year and a portion will be donated to the earthquake relief fund at Kesennuma City Shikaori Elementary school located in Miyagi prefecture.
We will continue to organize the bazaar as long as we have volunteers for the year. If anyone is interested to helping out for the next year, please feel free to let the class mother or PTA members know.
From Sports Day Committee
Sports Day to be held on 5/22 (Sun) will be the last big event for KNI. Thank you very much to those parents who signed up to be volunteers at the beginning of this year. Please note those parents with children who entered during the school year will also volunteer for this event.
Volunteer details will be sent after spring vacation from either the committee or class mother. We appreciate your support.
As sports day is one of the biggest event for KNI, we will need the help and cooperation from many parents. Although you already had volunteered at another event this year, please let us know if you are available to help again.
We are now looking for parents who can be a part of the PTA board, event committee, translation committee, and/or be class mother for the next school year.
PTA board members consist of 1 president, 2-3 people as vice president, 4-5people as secretary (document translation and web), 2-3people for accounting, and 1 person as a translation coordinator. There are 2-3 class mothers per class. The event committee’s function is to prepare for the 3 big KNI events (Christmas Party, Mochi tsuki, and Sports day) and coordinate with the parents regarding these events. The translation committee’s function is to translate the monthly newsletter into English and so this can be done in the convenience of your own time at home. The monthly class mother meeting is very casual and the children look forward to playing with children from other classes. If you are interested, please contact the current class mothers or the current committee members. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
