Homeroom teachers will review the drill procedures on Monday morning in the homerooms. If the weather is not cooperative, we will shift the drill to the following day. Please send your ward’s ID card for updating. The class has to be changed and in some cases address has to be updated. Also, please send an updated photograph to place on the ID card as well as an updated picture for the school’s register. Some of the pictures the school has on file are no longer usable for students.
Recently there has been an increase in students playing with their phones in school, even in the lower grades. There have also been instances where parents are calling their children in the middle of class. These are both violations of the school’s code of conduct regarding cell phones. Please make sure that if you have to reach your child, call the office to have a message relayed. Students should also keep their phones inside their bags at all times. The phones are to be used only in the case of emergencies. Please comply with the rules regarding cell phones at all times.

Parents Association (Tokyo) will be having a cupcake workshop and brain storming session about the School carnival on 12th May at 10:00 am at the school gym. All parents are invited to participate in the same. Parents who have not paid for the emergency kit and hood (3000 yen) should pay it by 12th, May. It has been noticed that the younger brother or sisters of the higher grades students wait till 4 pm to go with their older brother or sisters. While they are waiting there is no one to supervise them. Many of them are playing with play stations (which are a distraction during the study time also)or running around without any supervision. The solution to this problem is that parents enroll them in various clubs where they can utilize their waiting time in a better way and remain under teachers’ supervision. If you are not ready to do that then please come and collect them after their classes are over. School does not take any responsibility of supervising them. School management cannot be held liable for any mishap. All parents are requested to send a hand towel with their ward. Also some children are not using table mats while eating. This is not hygienic. Make sure they bring a table mat also. Please check if you have paid the 1st term fee by the due date. Have a nice weekend,
