MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL
- Chiku Veggie Drive (Repeat)
Good morning dragons!
We are from the Chiku Center advocacy group and want to let you know that we are running a veggie drive this week from Monday (the 12th) through Friday (the 16th). This time of year it is very challenging for people living at or below the poverty line in Yokohama to remain healthy. Your donations of fresh vegetables can help fight off serious illness!
There are green bins in the main lobby (foyer) and you can carefully place your veggie donations there. The Chiku Center particularly needs nice and fresh veggies that won’t rot quickly.
Thank you! (Chiku Advocacy Group)

Hooray! The rough draft is due on Managebac on Monday by 9 am!

Turning a fictional lens on the crisis of violence and racial divide in the United States, this @sakuramedal contender for 2018 book is funny and sad and kind and thought provoking. It’s also a story about being 17, friendships, family & romance. #yislearning #hsbookoftheday

- New HS Service Group! (Repeat)
There is a new service group looking to get started up and finally take a look at mental health in the YIS community.
They aim to:
Create a safe place that offers support and resources
Raise awareness on self care and how to to help others
Reduce the ever-present stigma and shame of mental illness by learning more
All in order to create a happier and healthier student body who will have yet another set of resources to benefit them throughout life. So if you’re interested in mental health or laying a new path so others can walk a little easier email Mr. Clark (email@example.com) or Alex Baxter (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Mr. Clark)
