Principal’s Message- August 14, 2019

We are looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow evening at our Back to School Night!  This is an opportunity for students to drop off supplies, meet their teachers, and for parents to hear about curriculum.  Please see below for details.

We are excited to share that Dooley School will be welcoming two college age students from Waseda University in Japan.  Both internships will take place September 1st – September 28th.  Oyanokai Parent group is seeking host families for each of the students.  Student interns would spend the school day at Dooley and would stay with their host family during the evenings and weekends.  Both students are advanced in their English language.  This opportunity is open to our dual language and base school families.  There is a stipend available through Oyanokai.  Please contact the office or respond to this email if you are interested in helping in any way.

Dooley小の皆様

Dooley Schoolでは、9月1日〜9月28日まで、早稲田大学より2名の大学生をインターンとして迎える事になりました。 その為シャンバーグ親の会では、それぞれの学生のためのホストファミリーを探しています。両名とも英語が堪能な学生です。親の会からの金銭的なサポートも検討しております。

ご興味・ご質問・何らかの形でご協力頂ける方は、このメールまで返信いただくか、Dooleyオフィスまでご連絡ください。よろしくお願い致します。
