VBS has kicked off today in the midst of the summer heat!
We are limiting outdoor play to about 20 minutes for safety and health reasons. Students will have longer outdoor play time on Pool Days.

Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before VBS days so they have enough energy for activities. Also, to prevent dehydration, have your child drink plenty of liquid before coming to school every morning.

Tomorrow, July 24, is T-shirt Day, so please have your child wear the Red VBS T-shirts that were distributed today.

Our VBS Director Ms. Emi will hold a Parents Class this Wednesday (7/25) from 9:30am. We especially recommend parents of students who are participating in VBS for the first time to attend. To reserve, please email us at info@aischool or call us at 0797-35-5011.
We look forward to meeting you!
