Joon Ko heading the ball. This was a drill we did with Coach Fujita-San. Tricia Kim, from the 2nd and 3rd grade class room is heading the ball. Coach Fujita-San telling us how to NOT head a ball. This was a game that you would have to dribble the ball around and Coach Fujita-San would blow the whistle and say 3, then you would have to sit on the ball with 2 people around you. Coach Fujita-San thanking us for enjoying football with him and Coach Jason, and they will be coming back to play with us.

Tang, Cutie and Beauty Whispering Palms School was adopted by an orange cat a year ago. Although she was afraid of all people she soon learned to trust because of the big hearts of our students and Staff (especially Auntie Goril). The students learned to care for her. They named her Beauty and fed her their left-overs. Soon Beauty's boyfriend "Cutie" moved in. Before we knew it, Beauty became a mom to baby Tang. We have tried to find the cats a good home but so far we have been unsuccessful. We now have 3 cats. We fear that if we don't take action the cat population will continue to rise. The only veterinarian still performing these operations will do the female surgeries for $260.00 and the male surgeries for $200.00. Our target is to raise $720.00. We have two females and one male and we fear Beauty might be pregnant again.
Morning Bake Sale. So far we have raised $140.00! We are almost able to get one cat fixed!

Please help us reach our goal of $720.00 by visiting our bake sale every Friday from 7:30 AM-8:05 AM at Whispering Palms School.
Today we went to Taste of India, we ate Indian food. We also got to look at their tandoori oven. We learned a lot about the food they eat in India! The Indian food was colorful and scented because of the many spices they used such as saffron.
Everyone liked comparing the restaurant's food to what we had learned about in our books. The food at the restaurant looked like a traditional Indian meal. The food was tasty. It was interesting to compare the Indian movies to our movies. Whoops, Raina got caught eating on camera! Some of the food was really sour or spicy. Some of our parents came too.
We also got to try special rice pudding, it tasted like chai.
The tandoori oven is really hot! The employees said it was very expensive to bring the Tandoori oven to Saipan. Tandoori ovens are the way many breads and meats are cooked in India. Traditionally they are made of clay.
