Well, it's a wrap for the summer, with students finishing their exams this week. I hope that all my students have a great summer. We finished with World War II and I warned all students to be careful if they run into any FUGO bombs while out hiking in the great Northwest Forests. After learning about the people who were killed on May 7 1945 near Bly, Oregon, students are well aware that a FUGO bomb could still turn up...and if so, it would be a remnant from when the Japanese sent over the bombs to start forest fires in the United States.
Mrs. Olsen will also be traveling this summer to Japan. This has been on her bucket list for some time, so wish her luck. If she doesn't come back, she could be killed by a bullet train, or a Japanese zombie, or better yet, she will get lost in the forests of Mt. Fuji, and her restless spirit will haunt the tourists who visit there. Hopefully, though, she will come back in one piece.
Most of all, thank you students for being such great kids! You were a delight to teach. If you miss Mrs. Olsen, you might want to take a trip out to the goodwill bins on Portland Rd, where she will be looking for treasures to share with her students next year. You can grab some things for yourself, and also say hi and see how her summer is going.
