I can’t trust anyone now. What’s next? My mom has a name instead of ‘mom’?” – Jaxtyn Bae, G2

“Ms. Downie introduced herself as Ms. Downie — not Nicole Downie. The only real one left is Santa.” – Benjamin Bartolay, G1

“Nothing seems real. My dad said I’m ‘in denial.’ I live in Korea. Is that a lie too?” – Michelle Chun, G2

    HAHA this is soooo cute and fun! To be honest, it’s also shocking for me to understand sometimes that students exist outside of school. I’ve run into some families at airports, stores, or the train station and it’s always surprising! Love the photos of the younger elementary students!! And how could you not love Ms. Nicole Downie??!
