So, the week began fine. Tuesday we had Student Led Conferences. Students and parents come to school and the students share the progress they have made so far through the school year. I heard positive comments from parents who enjoyed listening their child's perspective on his or her learning.
Wednesday was the Middle School Brain Bowl competition at AOBA school in Hikarigaoka. At the middle school level, the students are put into mixed groups with students from other schools. The group works together to find answers to questions, many of them are trivia type questions. There were three rounds with varying types of questions. The second round was the buzzer round where one group goes up against another group. On the ride back to school, the students' comments were quite positive, saying how much they enjoyed the day and were able to make new friends.

|Same shoe as last week, maybe not quite the same amount of snow.|
|Someone going for a walk?|
|Lots of snow, but it's starting to melt already|
|Satruday morning when I got up. Taken out of the bedroom window.|

I'm glad for weekends and Winter Break. It does give rest, although with this snow, not always physical rest, but still good physical activity.
