Mariko Visits Mia's Class

Mariko visited Mia's sixth grade class at Obiyama Elementary School.

All of the students read essays about their experiences in elementary school, their families, what they want to accomplish in junior high school, and their dreams for the future. In Japan, the school year ends in March and the new school year starts in April so the kids are thinking about taking that big step from elementary school to junior high school.

Mia has her hand raised.
Mrs. Matsuda -- a great teacher!
