Our next 1st grade event is Japan Day on Friday, February 10th from 9:30-11:20am.
The first graders have been learning about Japan and we are excited to have several presenters share their knowledge of the Japanese culture to the students. We will have three presentations:
1. Japanese Tea Ceremony
Every child will rotate through all 3 rooms. Each session will be 30 minutes long. We are in need of parent volunteers to help out with the Origami portion of the rotation as well as the Tea Ceremony. The Tea ceremony parent volunteers will have a wonderful opportunity to participate in a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. The volunteers need to be able to sit on tatami mats for about 15 minutes. They will also be removing their shoes before coming onto the tatami mats. If you could bring socks ( white socks are preferred, but any color is fine).
