TIPS Journal November 15, 2020

keeping our families in the school loop

Greetings from Tokyo International Progressive School

Dear Parent Community of TIPS,

Hello from the principal's desk. Any questions, please ask!

Thank you to all parents who came to see us (face-to-face or online) for our Parent/Student/Teacher interviews. We appreciate the good communication that benefits students when family and school are in close contact.

The end of November brings volleyball competition to TIPS, with two games at other schools this week. Additionally, see below for the photo shoot information for Wednesday.

Tokyo Coding Club will offer a Demo Day for students who want to take their coding skills to the next level, such as with 3D printing, app development and animation. You will be receiving more information as our students express interest.
