    Niji-Iro Update 6-24-19

    Dear Niji-Iro Families,

    にじいろ小学校 保護者の皆様へ


    Sixth grade graduation! We said goodbye to our sixth grade students following their graduation ceremony on Thursday. It was a beautiful ceremony where the kindergarten students sang to our sixth graders, and each graduate gave a speech in both Japanese and English. As I said in my speech, I could not be more proud to send this group of students off to middle school. This is an amazing group of kind, supportive, friendly, and talented students. These are the types of students you want in your schools and the people you want in your community. They will all be missed next year, and I hope they will come back to visit because they will always be part of our Niji-Iro Family.

    先週の木曜日に執り行われた6年生の卒業式では、キンダーの児童たちが6年生の為に歌を歌い、他の学年の児童たちは送辞の言葉を日本語と英語で述べました。私自身のスピーチでも述べさせていただきましたが、中学校へと旅立つ6年生の児童たちを本当に誇りに思います。優しく、サポーティブであり、フレンドリー且つ才能に溢れた児童たちは将来、他の学校は無論のこと、コミュニティにもポジティブな影響を与えられる貴重な存在となることでしょう。来年度には当校にじいろの児童でないのはとても残念ですが、学校に遊びに来てくれることを楽しみにしています。卒業しても、にじいろ家族の一員であることを忘れずにいてくださいね。


    Music Concert DVDs/音楽会DVD

    We are aware that two songs from the music concert were omitted from the DVDs that went home and that the quality is not as good as last year. I have spoken with the staff at Churchill, and they will be burning new copies that include all the songs. If you would like to exchange the disc you have for a new one or would like to return your disc, I will be at Holmes Middle School Monday through Wednesday this week. Please arrive between 8:00-12:00 as the staff has shorter hours in the summer. If you cannot make it to Holmes this week, we will have copies that can be exchanged or purchased when school starts in August. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    ご購入になられた方はお気づきかと思いますが、音楽会のDVDには2曲が入っておらず、また、画像の質も昨年度より劣っておりましたので、チャーチル高校のスタッフと話しましたところ、全曲入りのDVDを新たに作成してもらえることになりました。既に購入されたDVDの交換を今週の月曜日から水曜日まで、午前8時~正午の間にホームズ中学校にて私自ら行いますので、お手数ですがDVDをご持参の上、ホームズ中学校オフィスにお立ち寄りください。今週お越しになられない方は、8月の始業式後にも当校にじいろオフィスにて交換して頂けます。多大なるご迷惑をお掛け致しました事、お詫び申し上げます。

    Summer Literacy Activities/夏休みの読書アクティビティ

    It is important that students continue reading for 20 minutes each day to prevent the summer slide. https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/the_summer_slide_of_knowledge_true_or_false

    Reading can very much be a family activity. Find time to read as a family or even listen to books if you are traveling by car this summer. I have included a few links below with some summer reading activities.

    夏休み中も毎日20分の読書をすることはとても大切です。 https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/the_summer_slide_of_knowledge_true_or_false

    読書は家族ぐるみで出来るアクティビティですので、一緒に本を読む、車で旅行中にオーディオブックを聴くなど、読書の時間を確保してあげてください。以下は夏休み中に出来る読書アクティビティですので、是非ご覧ください。
