A Little School News


A project that I procrastinated for too long but finally got done for BT!
Thanks to those tireless workers who implemented and finished it in just two days!

Driving Alone For the First Time

A sunny afternoon. The licensed young driver was jolly. Considering the weather condition, her supplication for the first-time driving alone to a local place was approved. So we tailed that white car sneakily to the community center, about 3 miles away from our home. And it turned out to be a good trip, although I sat in the car behind, feeling as if someone had taken my heart away...


BT took part in a peaceful gathering for Gun Control and school safety today. It was an internal activity at school organized by students and not open to public or parents. The route was from students' homeroom walking to fieldhouse (gym). Sadly, not many peers of the same grade joined her; however, she gladly found many senior friends standing with her in the gym. I'm so proud of those students there who took the chance to stand up & speak up for what is right.

Let's dance :)
