PERFORMING ARTS

On Tuesday,  March 26 , 2019,  a group of Japanese students and teachers from Nagasaki Kita High School visited Pacifica High School to experience a day in the life of an American student.  The day began with a meet and greet at the flag pole and then a campus tour.  PHS students from athletics and  the dance department volunteered to be buddies.  Our visitors shadowed their buddy for the day and were treated to a hip hop class lead by advanced dance students.   It was a day of great interaction between students from two very different cultures.    PHS student Josh Carranza stated, “I thought Japanese students were so serious, but my buddy would make funny faces to make me laugh.”
