Since most of the villages around here don’t even have supermarkets or libraries….there most certainly isn’t a veterinary hospital around! Once a month a veterinarian will visit the mountains to neuter and spay the dogs and cats for free. Well today was that day, and there was quite a line of cats and dogs outside.
By the way…I’m not sure if I’ve introduced her to you guys, but this is Dupi, Principal Hong’s dog. She comes to school every once in a while.
Since the classroom Principal Ma usually uses was used for spaying and neutering dogs and cats, today’s lessons was held in the school library. Most of the time was spent sharing journal entries the students had written about what they are grateful for. Many of these kids come from broken homes or have lost a mother or father early in their lives…..I almost couldn’t hold back the tears.
He is SUCH a fantastic singer….he was abandoned by his mother at a young age, and his grandma is the only one that looks after him.
When he first came to school….he couldn’t even do simple addition or subtraction. On his most recent math test….he got a 70 :)
I was so moved by all of the students who spoke, and all of them are so brave for being able to share such personal stories.
After lunch....English class!
I observed 4th grade’s English class
p.s. the answer is “ I love dragon boat festival”….it’s coming up!
