Will this get stuck in the throat? これは喉に詰まりはしないか?
In a recent seminar, information was shared about the danger of objects getting stuck in children’s throats. To
prevent this from occurring it is best to keep ball-shaped objects less than 5.5cm in diameter away from children
(less than 3.9cm for children under age 3). Also, slicing mini tomatoes in half for little children is recommended.
Besides mini tomatoes, other objects that have caused suffocation are: grapes, peanuts, candy and mochi.
Please keep this in mind when preparing meals for children.
ものは、ぶどう、ピーナツ、あめ、白玉、 などです。日頃から注意して子どもの安全に努めましょう。

Easter Celebration
We have begun the final month of the 2nd term, and our school will enter an Easter Celebration
mode. Easter is a Christian festival celebrating Jesus Christ’s resurrection on the third day after
being being crucified on the cross, as written in the New Testament. At AIS, we observe Easter on
the final Saturday of March each year. Globally, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the
full moon, following the spring equinox falling between March 22 and April 25. This year, Easter
Sunday falls on April 5.
Rabbits and eggs are symbols of Easter, as they symbolize fertility. We are preparing to provide all
children an opportunity to freely participate in an Easter Egg Hunt game during the PTA Easter
I thank all parents who have been generous with their time to prepare for the fair and provide raffle
items. PTA representatives have also been working hard to plan for the fair, and will need each
parent’s help this month to make the fair an enjoyable one for all who participate! We still have
decorative Easter Fair fliers to help you invite your friends if necessary. Thank you for helping
distribute them.
God bless you.
