HS DAILY – Tuesday, April 10, 2018


  • YIS Magazine/Creative Collective

Our school magazine, charmingly known as The Snowball, is finally coming out of hibernation after months of hard work! Enjoy what artists have curated in the cold; you’ll find poems, photography, prose, and journalistic work by your fellow students either online at http://blogs.yis.ac.jp/yismagazine/current-issue/, or find one to flip through at the foyer, hall table on the third floor, Ms. Barbour’s room, or the cafeteria at lunchtime! (The YIS creative collective)
