Mrs. Okamoto Day

Mrs. Okamoto Day is a party that we have to celebrate a previous Hillwood teacher Mrs. Okamoto. Mrs. Okamoto had Ms. Caine's job when she taught at Hillwood. We always celebrate her on the opening day of the Giants because of her love for baseball and the Giants. We wear Giants themed clothes, and if people don't have anything that has to do with the Giants then they just wear something orange so that they can still celebrate her. A huge banner is made by Ms. Caine, and she paints Ms. Okaoto Day in orange and black, which are the Giants colors. We also always eat hot dogs outside for lunch as a fun treat. I interviewed Mr. Grantz so that he could tell us a few more things about Mrs. Okamoto.

so much?
