PTF Connections:

ptf-tshirtThe Holiday Market is almost here!  Thank you to all the parents who have already been helping with preparations! We will continue to need help in different areas over the next few weeks. Please stop by our PTF table (outside the office) on Thursday when you come to Parent Teacher Conferences. We will have sign up sheets to help at the Holiday Market, flyers to give to your friends, and our new PTF T-shirts for sale! Please buy a T-shirt to wear at school events and show how proud you are to be an OCSI parent! T-shirts are ¥2000 each.

Every Friday in October parents gathered to make crafts to sell at the Holiday Market. One parent told me, “It’s fun to come and learn something new. But the best part is meeting and talking with other parents. Before this, I only knew parents from my child’s class, but now I am meeting parents from many other classes. It is so much fun to talk together.” The purpose of the Holiday Market is to raise money for school projects, but it is also a great time to connect with other parents! I hope you will be able to join us as we have fun at the Holiday Market and meet new friends at the same time.

We are still collecting prizes for our raffle table. Please ask your favorite restaurant or bakery if they would be willing to donate a gift certificate. You may bring donations to the PTF table at parent-teacher conferences or email if you have any questions.
