YIS Magazine members! Please come to a meeting next Wednesday, day 5, in M305 at lunch. See you then! (Ms. Barbour)

  • LIP DUB YIS STYLE (Repeat)

Good morning fellow YIS students!
My name is Lea Kawashima (sophomore), and for my design project, I’m thinking of promoting the sense of community we have at our school by making a “Lip Dub video” where everyone participates.

Some of you may not know what it is, and in that case, please check out the link below :

Like the video you just watched, I will be using Pop Danthlogy 2015 (full track – 8 minutes) for the music!

If any of you are interested in participating, please let me know by filling in your name and grade on this document (teachers are encouraged too!) :

P.S I need more people for the background (who will be doing something funny or anything random while the “lip-syncers” do their job!)

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have about the project 🙂

Thank you!

Kind Regards, (Lea Kawashima)

  • LGBT History Month

Good Morning Everyone,

February is coming to a close, which means LGBT History Month is ending too. The LGBTQ+ group’s main goal is to achieve a happy and peaceful community at YIS between students and teachers of all sexual orientations and genders. Therefore, to celebrate LGBT History Month, as well as spreading love, we will literally be spreading love tomorrow, by selecting random classes and giving out some ‘kisses’!

Have a nice day! (The LGBTQ+ Group)
