I am Shigekatsu Kimura and I have been appointed as Chairman to run this year’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at MIS. Firstly, I’d like to give you my most sincere thanks to all of you for giving your understanding and cooperation with PTA activities. I’d like each of our children to have happy times at the school, that’s my reason for working hard and is one of the pleasures of being PTA board member.

We feel that because we have been able to see the lives of the children in school very well, we feel very close to the school and we can understand what goes on there. The growth of a child is very rapid and they become adults very soon. So, I’m happy that through some of the PTA activities you may be able to make some really good memories at school with your children. We are planning five meetings and one family event during this school year. We also support the Bazaar with different stalls and activities.

You will be able to experience the wonderful atmosphere at MIS, so we are looking forward to seeing you at some of these events. Furthermore, we would like all of you to share any ideas that can improve or benefit PTA so we have created our PTA’s exclusive e-mail address.
