Tsukuba International School is a community supported school for English-speaking, elementary school-aged children in the Tsukuba area. TIS receives no public funds and is dependent on contributions plus student tuition for all of its operating expenses. One of the ways the international community can help TIS keep expenses down is to volunteer to help with specific needs of the school. Over the years, people with specific skills and expertise have donated their time on a once-a-week or occasional time basis.
Recently, TIS has lost several of its volunteers. TIS would especially like to thank John and Debbie Saxon for the many hours they contributed, with John coming in occasionally to help with computer problems and Debbie both serving on the Board of Advisors as well as helping in the classroom oncea week as an ESL teacher. Likewise, TIS is losing both Youn-Kyong Lee, who taught an art class once a week, and Aki Arai, who was a volunteer Japanese-language teacher for the children. The TIS community will certainly miss all of these dedicated people.
Needless to say, finding people who can take over what they were doing is a top priority. If any of our readers would be interested in exploring the possibility of helping out at TIS in any of these areas, please contact the school at 47-0330 or IHMelissa[at]aol.com.
