Our Rokko Island High School neighbors are busily preparing for their sports day. Please be advised that on Thursday, Sept. 21 and on Tuesday, Sept. 26, their students will be crossing the northwest intersection, possibly causing delays. If you are driving, we recommend approaching the school from the northeast on those days in order to avoid frustration.
If your child walks or bikes to school, their normal route will be fine.

Dear ES Parents,
You are invited to join the Juanita Copley maths workshop on Tuesday Sept. 26th in the ELAC Multi-Purpose Room from 8:40-10:00. This workshop is aimed at learning maths from PreK to grade two, but would benefit all parents who wish to learn about the latest research in learning maths.
Ms. Copley's focus will be on using concrete materials to develop number and spatial sense. This supports our use of manipulatives and modelling to develop strategies for problem solving and communicating understanding.
We hope you will be able to join us!
Any grade 11 student who wishes to take the PSAT needs to pay 2,000 yen to the Finance Office by or before Monday, Sept. 25th. Students can then pick up a booklet from the Counseling Office. Sitting this exam is the best practice you can get for the SAT, and universities never see practice score results. Tenth graders are already registered and will be receiving booklets shortly.
