Join us for TAW 2021 Open Meeting

Teacher Appreciation Week (TAW) is coming up soon. TAW is PATO’s way to thank the CDC and SAP teachers for all their efforts rising our children. These last two years have been especially challenging for them, and it is now more important than ever to recognize their work.
We need your contribution to make this event a success.
We are holding an open meeting on Wednesday July 28, from 12:00 to 13:00 in C209, Center Building, either in person or on Zoom.



“PATOグリーン・フューチャーズ賞”の立ち上げを記念して、PATOはナターシャ・トカチェンコにグリーン・フューチャーズ賞を授与したいと考えています。2年前、ナターシャはCDCでスナックタイムから残ったバナナの皮を集め始め、OISTガーデニングクラブが世話をするキャンパスにある堆肥でそれらをリサイクルしました。全ての教師と教室のアシスタント全員が参加しており、現在しんかクラスの子供たちはリサイクルに関する学習の一環として、週に一度バナナの皮を堆肥に持って行きます。 PATOは、彼女の素晴らしいイニシアチブと、これを一緒に成功に導いたすべての教師、スタッフ、しんかクラスに感謝いたします! ナターシャの努力は、この年次賞を立ち上げるにあたりPATOにインスピレーションを与えました。

Come hang out on Slack with PATO members

Dear PATO members and allies,

We have recently created a Slack channel for the PATO committee members and it made our internal communication so much easier that we decided to invite all members as well. Click here to join the channel.

Let's hang out and chat about anything, CDC, SAP, parenting tips, concers, life in Okinawa... Looking forward to seeing you there.
