Manabiya Iowa

We are back to our full swing of learning!  
One of our biggest cultural event, the summer festival was full of joy,
tasty food and networking for all of us.  The participants had a chance 
got to see how our students were learning.  After this summer festival, two new students joined us.

We also had our second Hiyoko Club in this semester.  This is where the younger kids to enjoy language and cultural learning through songs, story telling, crafts etc with their parents and Manabiya students.  The theme was mini Sports Day and they had fun with some traditional activities.

Next Hiyoko Club will be on November 10th with the theme "Shichi-go-san."
This is a celebration for seven, five and three year old kids for wishing their healthy growth.
There will be a story telling, singing some songs, crafts and more!
