EPIC ARTS – Last Day with most students!
EPIC Arts has had a successful visit with Elementary, Middle and High School students and have enjoyed your enthusiasm and laughter during the workshops. The team will be performing at High School Graduation tomorrow and the Seniors (YIS Class of 2018) have amazingly chosen to donate to Epic Arts as part of their Senior Gift to the YIS Community.
Epic Arts will return to Cambodia early on Monday morning so if you see them at school today, please thank them for coming to YIS! (in Khmer, you say ‘Ah-Koon’)

The cost is 200 yen per person. There will also be a concession stand with food and drink available to help raise money for the Animal Relief Club.

The rules are simple:
1. 3 on 3 games (5 minute games)
2. up to two varsity basketball members a team
4. A Max of 5 people on each team if you would like subs
5. There will be separate boys and girls team tournaments but if you would like to have a coed team that is fine. The coed team will play in the boys tournament.

  • HS Book of the Day

Based on real events: During WWI, a decorated officer publicly declared he would no longer fight. As a result, he was sent to a military hospital where soldiers suffering from PTSD were subjected to brutal “treatments” better described as torture. #yislearning #hsbookoftheday
