Morning classes have a snack time. Parents take turns bringing store-bought
snack to school (about once in 4-5 months). When it's your turn, please bring
enough snacks for about 40 (34 pupils in a class + 6 teachers) and drop them off
when you drop off your child. We'll distribute a snack calendar, showing when
it's your turn, once or twice a year as necessary. We appreciate your cooperation
in providing safe and nutritious snacks for your children's snack time.
Examples of safe and healthy snacks
When you drop off the snacks at school, you don't need to stay and help prepare them.
Note: There may be pupils in your child's class who are allergic to snacks made
with peanuts, eggs, etc. Before buying the snacks, please talk to Mrs. Umehata or the class-leader teacher.

* Birthday Party
Once a month, we celebrate birthdays of the children who were born in that month
in each class. Parents of the birthday children provide snacks for the party, so
talk to the other parents of the birthday children to split the snack duties when your
child’s birthday month comes.
Also, when your child's birthday month comes, we send a birthday card home in your
child's bag a few days before the birthday party. Please attach your child's photo
and bring it to school on the day of the party.
During the party, your child will show this card to his/her classmates, so please
don't forget to bring it back on the day of the party!
After a kid-friendly Christian story, children will place their offerings themselves
into the offering can, teaching them to be thankful. On the offering day, have your child
bring an offering (i.e. $0.25) in his/her offering purse.
The collected offering will be sent to Japan as a donation to support their disasters.
* Children who are in toilet-training
Please try to complete the toilet training.
A lot of school events are possible thanks to pupils' parents volunteering under
the guidance of the Kodomo No Ie Parents Association. This is a great opportunity for
you as a parent to support school events as well as to see your child's growth up close.
We appreciate your active participation.
