On October 27, 2017 the students of Mr. Wilson and Ms. Sturdivant’s room experienced a bit of Japan. The students dressed in traditional festival coats (happicoats), summer wear (yukota), and headbands (Hachimaki). After the students dressed, members of The Japan-American Society of Pennsylvania introduced Kamishibai, the Japanese art of storytelling. They read two stories “Peach Boy” and “How the Years Were Named”. The presentation finished with the students receiving a name plate with their name written in Japanese. Thanks to Katsuko Shellhammer and the others for sharing their culture with us!
