Asahi Festival (English and Japanese)

October 13, 2022


Dear Parents,


NLIS is planning an exciting project for the students. We are going to set up a booth at the Asahi festival on Wednesday, November 23 to sell used goods to the public. All proceeds will go toward a new building for the secondary students. We have run out of classrooms and are in badly need of more! Can you donate any gently-used goods, or handmade items to sell? The festival managers suggest toys, games, electronic appliances, blankets, clothes, jewelry, and books.


The students will mark all the donated items during the weeks of November 14 through the 22nd. Could you please start bringing items from October 31? Please put your items in the spare room upstairs across from the junior high room.

On Wednesday, November 23, we hope that everyone can come volunteer for at least 30 minutes to work with a teacher and/or parent. The students (and not the adults) will take the money, put items in a bag, and give the correct change. This is a wonderful work opportunity all done in Japanese. The festival is open from 10:00 to 4:00, but we also need help carrying the items from 9:00 and putting them away when we run out of items to sell.


Please see the sign-up sheet attached and sign up when your child can come and help operate the booth. We will park at the school and walk over. Asahi Dori will be closed, so we have to come to school from Yamanote Dori. Please return the signed sheet soon so we can make our plans and teach the children what to do.


Thank you for all your support!


Sincerely,


Suzy Brown

親愛なるご父兄の皆様


NLISでは、生徒たちがわくわくするようなプロジェクトを計画しています。

来たる11月23日(水)に朝日通り祭りにブースを設置し、一般向けにグッズを販売します。全ての目的は、高校生用の建物の基金です。教室の数が足りなくなる緊急を要する状況にあります!ご家庭にあります遊休品、手作りのものなどのご寄付をお願いいたします。お祭り責任者のおすすめ出品物は、おもちゃ、ゲーム、家電、毛布、衣料、宝石、書籍だそうです。


生徒たちは、11月14日から22日にかけて、値札をつける等、販売品の準備をいたします。10月31日(月)より品物の受取りを開始いたしますので、プレハブ2階、中学生教室の向かいの収納スペースに搬入してください。


当日の11月23日(水)には、参加される皆様は少なくとも30分のボランティアをお願いしたいと思います。本番の販売、袋詰め、金銭のやり取り等、すべて生徒が行い、大人が手を出さないようにします。生徒たちにとって、日本語を実践する素晴らしい機会となることでしょう。お祭り開催時間は午前10:00~午後4:00ですので、9:00から全てのものの搬出、陳列を開始しますのでお手伝いのご協力をお願いします。


ブースでの販売を希望されるお子様は、3ページ目のボランティア申込用紙に名前のご記入をお願いいたします。駐車はスクールの敷地をお願いいたします。朝日通りまでは歩いていきます。当日、朝日通りは進入禁止となりますので、山の手通りから左折してお越しください。


申込用紙は、計画、生徒への指導等、準備のため時間を要しますのでなるべく早くご提出ください。


皆様のご協力に感謝を申し上げます。


何卒、よろしくお願いいたします。
