We would like to send a special thanks to Mr. Suzuki and Mrs. Mizoguchi for hosting the International College Fair. It was a huge success, and we truly appreciate all the parents, teachers, and students who volunteered to make this event happen. We hope we can continue to assist our students in college planning and preparing for their futures.

We had an amazing time of camaraderie between the students, teachers, and parents. We would especially like to thank Grace and Catcus Bagel for selling delicious cinnamon rolls to raise money for books to donate to our school library. In addition, we are happy to announce our donation of $100 and supplies to the Kodomo Cafe which feeds hungry kids in Okinawa. A special thanks to the people who supported this cause by either donating their money, or their time at the booth, and/or items to sell.

Lastly, the school welcomes volunteers throughout the year. So if you would like to help monitor elementary students during their lunch and recess times, please sign up through this link. It’s a great chance to serve and see your children interact with each other in our school environment. Thank you for your support 🙂 We are truly blessed by our OCSI families.
