The fall session of the Japanese Conversation Club ended on a high note with some students performing at the Japan Carefund Fall Bazaar on November 20, 2016.
Conversation Club will start its winter session in January. The winter session will meet after school on Tuesday, but the location will likely change. Keep an eye out for the sign up sheet!
In January we will start training interested kids to compete in the Junior Japan Bowl. Japan Bowl is a national Japanese language competition that is held at the high school level every year. I have been working with the Japan-America Society to sponsor a Japan Bowl competition between GFES and Fox Mill ES. Junior Japan Bowl will be held at the Fox Mill Matsuri (Festival) in May 2017. Training should be a lot of fun, and the winning school gets to take home a trophy!
