1 YEN DRIVE 2013


Today we starting planning where the KIVA collected money will go.
Some children helped count the money collected and others did some research into KIVA.

A total amount of money and where it will be going will be posted soon.


Some classes have pooled their money together and will decide on a KIVA project in the next few weeks. Some classes plan on lending this money to someone in need of water and sanitation. More details about this will be posted shortly…

Thank you to everyone who brought in change to support the 1 YEN drive this year.



This Week Student Council- October 8

Great job at assembly ESC.  Everyone went to visit the classrooms so now all the children and teachers know about KIVA and our plans for the 1 yen drive.

Our next step is to provide donation boxes in each classroom… if needed. Many classes already had the donations started.

We will talk again about this at assembly on November 1st. In the elementary school we will collect all the money (unless teachers have other plans) and decide where our money will go. We will ask Mr Clark to visit our meeting soon to talk about KIVA options.

Bike Racks

Problems and concerns:- bike seats are getting wet and its too crowded in the bike racks.

Possible Solutions and ideas:-

Could we move the plants? Park under the cover? Get more parking?

We will ask our own classes how many people ride a bike to school. Do they have problems?

We will find out how many elementary students need bike parking and discuss solutions if needed next week.

Also next week we will talk about the Food Fair.




This Week at ESC meeting

Today we reviewed our blog from last week and made a Script for visits to classrooms.

The grade 3 children will introduce the 2013-14 Student School Council at assembly this Friday. Each G3 Representative will prepare to read some of the script that we worked on together.

Each person will introduce themselves at the assembly and then on Monday next week each rep. will speak to their own class about the 1 Yen drive.

Because the lower elementary classes don’t have reps. we will visit them.

Maya and Erica will visit 2Q

Lukas will visit 2F

Kalab will visit 2C

Takumi will visit 1R

Noa will visit 1S

The grade 4s will visit K classes


You will have a visit from one of the people in this photo next week
