The Grade 4 class has kicked off the school year in Physical Education class exploring Net Games in the Volleyball Unit and overcoming challenges in the Adventure Challenge Unit.

4B has been introduced to the skills needed to play the sport of volleyball.  They have learned about how to underhand pass (bump), overhead pass (set) and underhand serve.  The students are learning more about how being an active member on a team you need to demonstrated responsibility and leadership while using communication and cooperation. They were able to show their skills and put them into action during a volleyball game in Physical Education class!

As the reality of another week of distance learning and disruption of our regular routines sets in this week, I’d like to focus on keeping it simple and go back to some parenting basics.

Whether in Tokyo or abroad, many of us are under self-quarantine. It is important to be aware of cabin fever syndrome – rooted in the feeling of confinement and isolation for an uncertain period of time.

At this time, we would like to encourage our community to take the time to practice self-care.  We might find this to be a highly stressful and challenging period.  We can help manage our anxiety by acknowledging and discussing our feelings about this situation with loved ones or with myself as the KG/ Elementary counselor who is trained and equipped to deal with stressful situations like this.

Art in the library

It has been great to see the art contributions and hear the important discussions that have taken place and note how this competition has supported learning.
