HS DAILY – Thursday, March 2, 2017

MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL

  • PTSCs and Early Finish

A reminder that classes finish at 1.15pm today. Middle Schoolers – you need to wait till the end of lunchtime to leave school, High Schoolers – you need to leave at 1.15pm. Please also note that if you are waiting for your interviews after 2.00pm, the library is not the place to hang out as there will be conferences happening. (Mr. Snowball)

  • Be Well @ YIS (Repeat)

The students of PSHE 9 have been thinking and learning about social wellness. We have left notes around the main building with some of our thoughts about maintaining good social relationships as part of our Be Well @ YIS campaign. If you find a note, have a look, give it a thought and consider how we might be show more empathy in place of mean-ness, acceptance in place of judgement, and respect for privacy in place of gossip. (Mr. Pitter)

  • Snow Club Bake Sale & Raffle (Repeat)

Hey guys, Once again it’s the Snow Club coming to tell you guys a message.

On the 3rd of March during the morning recess, we are going to have a bake sale with a bunch of wicked, home-made baked goods.

During the bake sale we are also hosting a raffle. The grand prize is a BURTON Bag, (¥12,000 value) and other gnarly prizes.

One ticket will be sold for ¥200 and three tickets for ¥500. The more you buy, the higher chance you have to win. Tickets will be sold at the the bake sale, and throughout next week. Ask Yongwon(12) or Keigo(12) during lunch in the cafeteria and they will hook you up.

The winners will be announced on the 9th of March during HS lunch.

All of the money raised will be donated to CHILL JAPAN, so spend some money on our baked goods and raffle for a good cause.

It’s getting warmer, but it’s still shredding season. So bring your change and come support the Snow Club.

Peace out, (The Snow Club)

  • 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 :
https://youtu.be/wgWzuxjuxxQ

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)
