For the Love of Our Sponsors

Main writing by Jared Pangier; sponsors provided their own words

Toward the start of the 2023-2024 school year, Hokkaido International School Sapporo Huskies ran up to the fourth-floor gym to howl "We are Huskies!" Students from ages 3 to 19 were decked out in lime green, daisy, blue, and pink. A week later, those same Huskies dashed around Makkomanai Park in their flashy new first official Husky shirt. This would have not been possible without the spring of 2023. It could not have happened without the support of our community, the PTA, or the love of our four sponsors: 

  • Holiday Niseko 
  • H2 Group 
  • Sun Trap, Inc
  • BananaArt 

As Hokkaido International School came through the pandemic in the spring of 2023, we turned back to rediscover who we are: a school that values the development of the whole person. With pandemic restrictions off, the Huskies began emerging beyond the school walls. They hiked mountains, they hit the bike trails, they surged down the ski slopes, they floated across fields of white on their snowshoes. The experience-based trips reminded us of our beautiful place and our own place in our surrounding world. The increase in events brought an idea back to the surface: an official shirt letting the world know that we are who we howl we are. Huskies. With that idea resurfaced, HIS reached out for support from our community. The school leadership gave their approval, the PTA provided support, and four companies stepped up. Our first sponsor even provided support for our 2022-2023 yearbook!

Holiday Niseko

Holiday Niseko, is excited to announce its sponsorship of the HIS yearbook and the first official HIS T-shirt. This collaboration reflects our commitment to the community and a shared belief in the importance of education in nurturing young minds.
