Dear Parents,

Your child will be coming home with a parent survey for you to fill out. In order to help New Life International School be the best school that we can be, we need to hear your opinions and ideas for the school. Could you please return the completed survey by January 21? Mr. Rasson will put the results in graph form and publish the results.

We are also asking for parent reviews. Please write a sentence or two about your experience with NLIS, so we can post it for other parents who are considering our school. This can be in English or Japanese, and it can be anonymous. If you need any examples, Aiko has some at her desk. We appreciate your help in promoting NLIS.

It’s hard to believe that this school year is coming to an end in just eight short weeks. The children have grown so much and we hope that you are proud of their achievements. There are a lot of great things planned for the rest of the year. Please see below:

Personal Safety Week: Children will be separated by ages and gender for the personal safety training. We have found that the children feel more comfortable talking and asking questions this way.

Grades K-4 will discuss the following:

· What is a Stranger?

· Who is a Safe Stranger?

· What is a Safe Place?

· When is it Safe to Talk to Strangers?

· Staying Safe Rules

· No, Go, Yell, and Tell Strategy

· What’s My Number?

· Calling for Help

Grades 5-9 will discuss the following:

· Healthy Relationships: boundaries and signs to be aware in unhealthy relationships

· Puberty

· Menstrual Cycle for the girls

· Endocrine System

· Stranger Danger Internet Safety

Thank you for helping our school community be safer, friendlier, and a great place to belong!

Warmest regards,

Suzy Brown

Principal of NLIS
