PTF Connections:

PTF Flea Market: On March 21, 2018, PTF held its first Flea Market filled with many visitors despite the change of location from the soccer field to the cathedral and hallway, due to the strong wind. We appreciate all the participants for joining us!

We had booths of games, face painting and nail art, and snacks and coffee, as well as some personal items sold by OCSI parents. Students enjoyed the event by selling items with their families, running the game booths, and making pompons.

Parenting Seminar: On April 13, 2018, a parenting seminar was held with the guest speaker, Mr. Koji Kaneko from Family Forum Japan. What is the most essential in parenting? In this seminar, Mr. Kaneko talked about the necessity for the parents to interact with their children as their coaches. We appreciate many parents for attending the seminar!

Nepali Cooking Class: OCSI parents, Shanti and Narayan showed the participants how to cook three kinds of Nepalese home-style cooking: Nepalese Salad, Chicken Biryani, and Shrimp Coconut Curry. All these dishes were cooked with a lot of spices, and the participants loved how delicious they were! Thank you, Shanti and Narayan, for showing us how to cook delicious Nepalese cuisine!

Teacher Appreciation Week: April 24 – 26, 2018, is Teacher Appreciation Week! This is an event to show our appreciation to the teachers and office staff for their daily hard work. On April 24, 2018, give them small gifts such as chocolates, drinks, or some stationery.  On April 25, 2018, give thank-you cards to your teachers. On April 26, 2018, bring a food dish for the teachers and office staff for their brunch. Salads and desserts would be great to bring as well as staple foods.

  • Foods purchased from grocery stores would be also wonderful. Please bring your dish to the office at any time from the morning until the afternoon. You can also send the food with your child(ren). In that case, please tell your child(ren) to bring it to the office.
  • The purpose of this event is to show our appreciation to the teachers and staff for their everyday work. You can participate in the event by doing whatever you feel comfortable with. You are not required to participate for the whole 3 days.
  • Thank you, teachers, for always loving our children!
