On the first day of school,everything was awesome and normal.I saw Lloyd,Nathaniel,Sateen,and many other classmates in my class from P.s.119.Now that I’m in middle school,everything has changed.Every time when the bell rings,we go to different periods until the late bell rings after a good 10-15 minutes and then the period starts.
I also met my homeroom teacher Mr.Josaphat. He is a nice teacher who teaches me math and French.My school year has been great so far and I can’t wait to tell you guys more after a couple of weeks.
P.s.119 has been my home for 4 years and now Hudde is the school I have to get used to.
I hope when I have the time I can post some more stats of what’s going on in my new school.
Today we listened to traditional Japanese music. One of the instruments was correctly identified by Elijah as a flute called a shakuhachi. Mr. Jump remembered working with a Japanese-American shakuhachi player by the name of Gengi Ito. We looked him up on the Internet and sadly found out he died in 2001. Here is a picture of a shakuchachi:
The shakuhachi flute is usually very large and carved out of bamboo.
