2023 Cherry Blossom Fair Kick-Off

What a great Cherry Blossom Fair kick-off we had during the assembly last week! It was fun and exciting to see Gary, Howard, and Tess surprised us in their pink outfits (from head to toe…literally)! The TFC Team Leads then wowed the crowd with their amazingly entertaining Kick-off Dance.

The founders of our chosen charities, Mr. Michael Anop from Playground of Hope and Ms. Christey West (who is a current TIS mom) from Just Peoples, joined us to speak about the projects that our fundraising efforts would support.

Please take a look at the video clips below from both charities – you will get to learn more about how our fundraising efforts will impact many children and their communities within Japan as well as abroad.

Let’s hit our fundraising goal!

Like previous years, the raffle is one of our most important ways of raising funds for our charities. The goal this year is to sell 8000 tickets (two times what we achieved last year)! Each student was sent home with a packet containing more details as well as their first batch of raffle tickets to sell.

To ensure we have a real FUN-raising experience, there are prizes for the top-selling PYP and MYP students, as well as a Grand Prize for the top-selling grade!
