Welcome from the Elementary Principal

A beloved children’s book, Chrysanthemum; by Kevin Henkes begins with these words, “ The day she was born was the happiest day in her parents’ lives. ‘She’s perfect,’ said her mother. ‘Absolutely’, said her father. And she was. She was absolutely perfect.” Our children are precious and when it comes time for their school life to begin we desire for it to be a joy filled and successful one.

Welcome to the Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ). You have become a member of a community in which we aspire to be Christ-like and caring towards one another. I trust you will feel welcome and a part of our community.

It is our school’s mission to equip students to impact the world for Christ. We equip students to be responsible learners, discerning thinkers, productive collaborators, effective communicators and faithful caretakers. In elementary school we aim to establish the essential foundation needed for future achievement and lifelong learning.

This handbook is intended to be a helpful introduction to our life together in this community. It describes who we are and what we can expect from each other as we live and work together. Reading through this handbook and keeping it handy for reference will answer many of your questions and help you feel at home more quickly.

CAJ reserves the right to change any policy herein at any time, at its sole discretion (or at the discretion of the Board, where applicable), whenever it determines that it is in the best interests of the school to change the policy.

I am looking forward to partnering with you to make elementary school joy filled and successful for your child.

Sincerely,

Jacquie Willson
