Mine were normal and tasty, but across the hall in the 11yo room, one mom sent in a KFC meal for each kid and another ...
... of “Happy Halloween.” I went to a few of my own
classes, grade 2 English, and we did a fashion show, took pictures, and “played”
trick or treat. It was a great time, and the kids really took up to the whole
spirit of Halloween.
Other notes, a lot of the kids also dressed up as Spiderman,
so it was a nice connection to see and take to take pictures with. Another good

Zhenhai Tower, better known among the locals as the Five-Story Tower, is one of the landmarks of the city. An interesting historical record has it that Zhu Liangzu, Yongjia Marquis of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), saw yellow and purple air rising over Yuexiu Mountain and ...
