Visitors from Japan
On March 8th, we had a visit from 11 students from Okazaki High School, Japan. They were each paired with a Hayfield student whom they shadowed to experience a typical day at Hayfield.
There happened to have been a Pep Rally that day, which made the experience extra fun and unique. They very much enjoyed living a day in the life as an American student.
