PTF Connections:

Last month, the PTF held its second general meeting. We are very thankful for the parents that were able to attend and provide feedback on our events like Coin War, Holiday Market, and Fall Flea Market. For those who were unable to attend, the link for the presentation is posted on the school website under PTF and in our LINE group.

This month, the school held another Japanese college guidance session. We appreciate all the parents that were able to attend and hope the information was useful. Please feel free to contact Mr. Suzuki and/or Mrs. Lopez for college guidance information.

Also, please remember March 12th is our International College Fair. This is a very important event for our high schoolers, middle schoolers, and parents. We are looking for volunteers to help the event – please contact the office for more info!

College guidance

This week is a very exciting week for the Elementary kids, as it will be Reading Week. The kids will be able to dress up as their favorite characters from books, bring in their favorite books, and share the magic of reading. On Thursday, February 21st at 5:00 – 6:00 pm, Mrs. Woolery, our literacy support teacher, will be hosting Family Reading Night, which will include story time, crafts, and snacks. PTF will be donating new books for this event for kids to take home. Hope to see many friendly faces there!

Flea Market

Next month on the 21st of March during Student-Led Conferences, PTF will be hosting the Spring Flea Market. This is a great opportunity for parents and students to get rid of their used items, find good bargain, and also get experience as sellers and buyers.

  • If you are interested in participating in this event, please email us and submit an application free of charge.
  • If you do not have a table and would rather not be on the ground, simply rent one from us for $5.00 or ¥500.
  • In addition, there will be snacks and drinks for purchase/donations and hopefully some fun games for the kids.
  • Would you like to introduce your business to the rest of OCSI? We will save a table at the Flea Market so bring in your flyers, business cards, coupons, etc. before or on that day so other parents can pick up your information!

If you have any questions, suggestions, comments, or concerns, please email us at Please continue to check our Facebook, LINE, and the OCSI website for updates.
