Mary Christine Mars (“Chris”) – Retired SAHS Faculty

The reason I’m such a fan of the KHS/SAHS Alumni Association:

I graduated from the American School in Japan in 1973. And while the school has a fantastic alumni association, keeping in touch via email and the website, reunions are almost impossible because the school is in Tokyo. So when I started teaching at SAHS in 1994, I decided to ‘adopt’ the school as “my school” by attending functions and donating to the associations Scholarship fund.
