Posted on October 27, 2015 by Scot Allen

Mid-Pacific Social Studies Teacher Cy Oh Young '97 visited the Japanese language class of Melvina Kurashige Thursday, Oct. 8, to teach her 8th graders the art of Bon Dance. The traditional dance provided a vibrant connection with the Language Arts novel they are reading, "The Language Inside," by Holly Thompson.
