 Reading Keeps Your Imagination Blooming! 

IMG_8833

All it takes is a stack of great books and a commitment to read every day. Vacation reading will keep your child’s learning moving forward and there’s no better time for them to develop a lifelong habit of finding pleasure in books.

To support our students with their summer reading goals, the ASIJ Elementary Library annually allows returning students and their families to check out books during summer vacation.  If your family is interested in participating, summer checkout is June 3rd-5th this year. Please complete the summer checkout permission form below.

All books are due August 23, 2019 during ES Orientation.

Thank You!

The ASIJ Book Bowl Traveling Team went to Makuhari International School last Thursday to participate in the 10th annual Sakura Book Bowl Tournament.  The team has been preparing since December with Mrs. Fields and Mrs Cosgrove and the team’s hard work and dedication paid off. The tournament was a real nail biter, but in the end the team came through edging out St. Mary’s International School by 5 points.

Congratulations!  The following classes read the most Sakura Books this year:

Grade 1 – 1H

Grade 2 – 2D

Grade 3 – 3B/J

Grade 4 – 4S

Grade 5 – 5V
