It is time for the annual OCSI Walkathon.  This is our school's biggest fundraiser of the year.  It is a 17 kilometer walk from the school all the way to Cape Zampa.

The funds go to improve the school.  Last year we built a new kitchen.  The year before we were able to put projectors into each classroom.  This year's goal?  A/C!  Some rooms are already air conditioned, but some classes (like Dan's on the 3rd floor) are not.  It does get rather hot in the summer months, so this would definitely be a much appreciated improvement.

Well, we'll all be walking on November 12th.  Hope to see you there!

Sweet Potato Digging

Our school goes on an annual Sweet Potato Dig.  It is only for Kindergarten through 2nd grade, but both Emi and Mika got to go.

There were several varieties of sweet potatoes, including the Okinawan Beniimo.

They all had a great time, as we did eating them later!
