Marathon 2020!

Rounding the corner of the final lap

Winter Sports Day was a success today!

Every morning at International Language House, we do running practice after our morning taiso routines. But this past month, we have been doing a little extra running to get ready for the big day.

It was a little chilly in Shin-Yokohama park, but we warmed up quickly after our first few meters.

As all our volunteer mamas and teachers ran alongside the kids, we saw so many runners trying their hardest! Thank you to everyone who came to cheer us on throughout the course.

Our top winners from each class were announced after arriving back at the kindergarten, receiving a trophy per winner, as well as badges for the rest of us.

We are so proud of all our kids today for doing their best!

Welcome to 2020!

Welcome to 2020!

Happy Holidays!

How was your Winter break? Did you travel anywhere or visit relatives?

Some of our teachers spent the holidays in their home countries with their families, while some of us stayed in Japan to celebrate the Japanese way.

Over the break, our teachers sent everyone a New Year’s card. We also received a lot of New Year’s cards from you all, and it made us very happy!

Today was our first day back from break, and all our Language House friends were SO excited to reunite with each other!

During our Opening Ceremony, we talked about New Years traditions, other special days coming up, and expectations for the third term. There are a lot of expectations we have that we hope to reach together.

What are your new year’s goals and resolutions?

明けましておめでとうございます!今年もよろしくお願いします〜
