We hope you are planning to attend our elementary students’ Cultural Awareness Performance on March 30. The performance is the culmination of months of academic and enriching study about the island nation of Japan. In recent weeks students, preschool through fifth grade, have created beautiful and vibrant works in different mediums and styles, including Japanese-inspired ceramics, fans, Kabuki stage set pieces, paintings and silhouettes. Many of these works will be on display, and guests will have the opportunity to purchase them, with proceeds being donated to the Japan Society. The Japan Society is a nonprofit organization supporting earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan.
