Gilbert High School’s Japanese classes have banded together to support Rinka Hirayama, the young Japanese national recently orphaned in a terrible accident in northern Arizona. It is likely that many of you have already heard the news surrounding Rinka, but for those who have not, a brief summary of the tragedy is included in the attached flyer.
School Carwash Flyer
Students have organized a car wash/bake sale to support Rinka and “show her the love and sympathy of the state of Arizona.” It will be held on Friday, April 18th (this Friday!) from 8:00am to 12:00pm at the Walgreens at the SE corner of Val Vista and Warner, close to the Denny’s restaurant. Come to support our cause, leave with a clean car and a treat! See the attached flyer for a map to the location.
We are also collecting donations and well-wishes in room 1604 of Gilbert High. If you do not have a student attending the school, we welcome your donations by mail. Please address checks to “JBAA” and send to:
