  • Support for Personal Project

Hi. My name is An from grade 10 and for my personal project I will be opening a pop up shop in the library on Monday. It will be up all day from 8 till 5. There will be a mixture of products – some old and some new with items like dvds, pencil cases, pens, stickers and more. All of the proceeds will be donated to SympaMeals, an organization in Vietnam that provides meals for cancer patients who cannot afford food. Please come by and support! – Thank you, (An, Grade 10)

Good morning everyone!

  •  Snow Club Winter Kick-Off Sale (Repeat)

Hello YIS,
Snow Season is upon us, and ski hills are set to open in the coming weeks all over Japan.

If you are missing some gear to hit the slopes like gloves, coats, helmets, goggles, pants or even a snowboard, the YIS Snow Club will be partnering with Burton Snowboards for their Winter Kick-Off Sale, this Saturday December 2nd, from 10AM to 4PM at YCAC.

Lots of Burton gear will be discounted up to 50%, and all proceeds from the event will be donated to Chill Japan, a Japanese NPO that helps children who have been affected by natural disasters by providing them with fun activities like snowboarding.

Tell your parents, tell your friends. See you on Saturday! (Mr. McKeown)
