Tsukuba International School begins its 11th year of operation this fall, continuing in the facilities offered by Shuei High School since 1996. TIS is off to a good beginning this year with 14 students enrolled and 2 or 3 more likely to join. The lower elementary teacher, Brian Hartman, is returning this year, and for the upper elementary students, TIS is trying a new pattern, with two part-time teachers sharing the teaching load. Jackie Hieb will be concentrating on the language arts and social studies, while Jonie Clave will handle math and science.
If you are interested in checking out the possibilities of putting your child in TIS, or if you can contribute to the school in some way through volunteer work (such as helping with the lunch hour or helping individual children who need special attention, etc.) please contact the school (contact information available on the school's website).
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
