CCSI Newsletter - CCSI ニュースレター May 2nd

Dear Parents,
Our Wednesday morning devotional schedule is the most diverse.  On the first Wednesday of each month we pray for our school.  We often talk about things we are thankful for and things that we want to ask God for CCSI.  The second Wednesday every month we pray for a different prefecture in Japan.  This is part of a series that was started last year, and we are almost finished with the entire country of Japan.  It is wonderful to think that the children have prayed for almost every prefecture, specifically by prayer needs.  The third Wednesday every month is English worship with the Keiyo Team.  We start classes at 8:30 AM and then at 10:30 AM we have a worship service together.  The 4th week is Concert of Prayer, and we gather together and pray for the first 30 minutes of the day.  If there is a 5th Wednesday, there is a special devotional.  I would like to give a special thanks to Kevin Pitz who volunteers to translate most Wednesday mornings.
Students who will not attend school on May 30, in order to go to the CheaJapan conference, will not be marked absent for the day.  Please note that there will be school on May 30, for the families who are unable to attend the conference.
Upcoming E-Zones:  E-Zone will start up again on May 9th.
Once again, we will be concentrating an the different countries of the world.  However, this semester we will not be providing lunch for the students.  If your students are staying for lunch, please send a packed lunch.
We will be studying the following countries:
May 9:  England
May 16:  Mexico
May 23:  Bangladesh
May 30:  Madagascar
Also, the elementary grades will be performing a dance number for the talent show.  We will be practicing during the last hour of the upcoming E-Zone days.
June 6th E-Zone will be used for student Talent show rehearsal.  (Parents/family are not required to attend.) 
Please sign up for the talent show by the May 24th deadline.
