The library is looking for art submissions for the Sakura Medal Art Competition.
If you would like to enter please speak to your art teacher, or deliver your artwork as a hi res image (at least 1 MB) via email directly to Mrs. Hayakawa by April 9th.  We will choose six pieces to represent ASIJ. These pieces will then be voted on by all the schools participating in the Sakura Medal. The winning artwork will be sent to the author who wins the medal.
Artists who participate get a vote in the art competition and an invitation to the HS Sakura Medal Voting Party at the end of April.

Exams today! For 50 years students have been rubbing the nose on the plaque of Dr. Fred Harris, our former headmaster, for good luck on their tests. Hence the shiny nose!!!!

We had some fun today. More than fifty students played our Holiday Kahoot! Quiz inside the library after hot chocolate and holiday music in the HS lobby. We’re in the spirit of the season!!

Chris facilitated writing workshops in the HS and MS, and gave a very moving talk in the HS library about his work as a counselor for abused kids, and how that experience informed his writing.
