Parent Association of Japanese School

Parents Association of Japanese School of Detroit (JSD) has been taking a special role to maintain and enhance our school system. Each year, dedicated parent volunteers are actively involved in one of the five committees; Executive Council, General Affairs, Security, Cultural Communication, and Kindergarten Education. Their contributions are an integral part of children's education and operations of the school system.

JSD TODAY is the publication issued once or twice a year by Cultural Communication Committee members. The purpose of JSD TODAY is to provide the local educators better cultural and educational understanding of Japanese students. Its articles include news and events at JSD, Japanese cultures, essays by Japanese students and summary report of ETJ (Educator To Japan) program participants.
