|Hiking Field Trip on Children's Day|
You may have guessed it - today was Teacher's Day!!! Student's are supposed to thank their teachers and wish them well. It's the sweetest thing! Consequently, this also usually results in student's mom's buying presents (sometimes shockingly lavish ones) for teachers. My school in particular sent out letters to families stating a no-gift policy. Apparently some schools now close on Teacher's Day because of bribery issues and mounting competition among parents to have the best gift.
Luckily though for me flowers, food, and little trinkets were okay to accept. ^-^ Over Monday and Tuesday I received many little gifts from students and I feel so special! I was especially excited to receive a new scarf, a bottle of white wine, and a cute new headband. The gifts are very nice, but the best part is getting homemade cards from students - they're too adorable!
That's all for today! I've got some essays to grade and it's already after midnight (-:
