Braving the cold for a final photo before returning to Japan.

Braving the cold for a final photo before returning to Japan.

It was an exciting week at East-West with the visit of ten students and three staff members from our sister school in Japan.  Our school community welcomed them with open arms and were eager to share and exchange cultural experiences and best practices in education.   As in years past, our families have hosted each delegation and helped make them feel at home.  The goal of developing a deeper understanding of each other’s differences and similarities while giving them a wider perspective of tolerance and acceptance was achieved.  We will continue to build our relationship with Nishio High School and look forward to visiting them in the Summer of 2018.

Some photos during their visit.

Ms. Marinos and student government organized a special assembly to welcome Nishio High School.

Let the battles begin!

Let the battles begin!

On Wednesday, March 4th, our Student Government hosted another fun filled event, Clash of the Classes.  Selected students from each grade competed with chosen staff members in an all out battle of activities ranging from basketball knock-out, musical chairs, balloon stomping, lip-syncing and “everything you got” tug-of-war.

This is going to be a tough battle.

Spirit Week, five days of diversity.  Days to express one’s personality in unique ways, and get everyone involved. Teachers, students, staff members and administrators all got engaged in Spirit Week.  The core of the school was bound closer together as everyone competed to be the most unique.  Everyone did an amazing job.  Our teachers were the hallmark of the Spirit Week, which is what makes East-West an extraordinary school.

SGVT Video Game Night revised

By Nafees Rahman, 11th Grader

The video game tournament has been an ongoing staple at East-West every year where students get to enjoy themselves, settling “grudges” in certain games and allows for inter-grade relationships to strengthen with a more free interaction.

Students may look forward to it as an excuse to merely hangout or subsequently brag or in this case, challenge a teacher!
