TIPS Journal February 1, 2022
on the school year so far
Greetings from Tokyo International Progressive School
After the upcoming Valentine's Day February 14th event, we will be turning our attention to the Variety Show, our afternoon of performances and applause on Friday, April 1. Co-directors are Mr. Brock Spore and Mr. Jason Wan. Practices will begin soon as students and teachers firm up the acts. This year our Variety Show will be held in an auditorium in the ShimoKitazawa area.
As COVID infection rates continue to be unprecedented, please make wise decisions with your family as you balance risks and benefits of your activities. Updates to our COVID policy can be found on our website, here:
New information includes definitions of close-contact persons and requirements for those in that category. As always, we appreciate frank and open communication regarding your family's health situation.
Thanks for reading. Any questions, please ask!
If you plan on helping at the sale itself, please note our lunchroom has a strict "no talking" rule which we enforce because of the rising COVID infection rates. The bake sale will be in the Meeting Room, however, where masks will be worn, so we can speak to one another there as we shop.

STUDENT COUNCIL ACTIVITIES
Instead of having to write orders, the cashier will simply press a couple of buttons which will cut the time to order in half. We are planning to implement this system within this quarter. We look forward to students experiencing a smoother ordering system.
Also, we would like to mention there is an exciting upcoming event in the middle of February. Students will know more details closer to the day!
