We love pets and understand that they are part of many families! Pets are always welcome at the front of the building at drop off and pick up times-- it's wonderful to see how happy our students are to see their pet waiting for them. However, we have been finding dog waste in the sandboxes, on the playgrounds and playing fields.
Please do not bring your pet beyond the front of the school without permission from the headmaster or a principal for recreational purposes (especially on our fields and playgrounds) as this creates both safety and health risks for our children.
Thank you for keeping our children (and pets!) safe, happy, and healthy.

As most of you know, November and December are the fundraising months for the Thai Village Children's Fund campaign. This fund was established by a Thai, Jeannie Vogt, to support Thai children in the northern Thailand to continue their secondary education. Junior high schools are compulsory in Thai, but only 30% of the students can attend schools as many families in villages cannot afford to buy necessities such as uniforms, shoes, textbooks and stationary. High schools are not compulsory and cost more, so only a few families can afford to send their children to high school. CA has been supporting this project since 2004 and each year it has grown; last year we raised 2,282,838 yen.
We are looking for new sponsors for HS students, which is 10,000 yen per year. If you could help, please email Midori Nishizawa (N208) by Wednesday, December 11th.
Also, please do not miss the Pottery Sale for Thai Kids on Friday, November 29th from 17:30 to 19:30 in the atrium by Canadian Academy's Japanese teacher, Mrs. Kuni Labrecque. Pots donated by professional potters will be sold in addition to Mrs. Labrecque's works. All the profit will go to Thai Kids' fund. If you are looking for a traditional holiday gift, this would be a great opportunity.
Without education, the Thai children will not get a job and have to struggle with poverty throughout their life. Your help will make a difference to their life!!
Thank you for your support for the Thai children!
