Last week our school had an assembly to honor the sixth graders, who graduate next week (the Japanese school year starts in April and ends in March). Each grade did a different dance or presentation for their onissan and oneesan — older brothers and sisters. It was super cute.

The sixth graders sang this song — I don’t know anything about it and there is no academic purpose for linking it here, it’s just cute.

The staff formed a band and covered “Shimanchu nu Takara” by BEGIN. It’s a good thing we got here when we did, because the band had no drummer before Jojo, who made his drumming debut here. The vocal microphone was sub-par, but the music teacher did a wicked sax solo.
