Thank you Mrs. Leslie and Mrs. Burnett, inspiring and providing the resources for Casady students to surprise our guests.
Mrs. Mari Leslie and Mrs. Carmen Clay attended this year's Oklahoma University Japanese Day Event. The Japanese student Association took participants on an imaginary trip to Japan. The kimono fashion show was organized by Mrs. Yukiko Burnett, Taste of Japan's Ikebana instructor. Mrs. Clay was so impressed by the kimono fashion show that she asked Mrs. Burnett to consider allowing a few Casady students to model her kimonos at the beginning of the food sampling, as an opener to the entertainment and as part of the Casady surprise. Mrs. Burnett agreed and the Casady surprise now has a wider representation of the student body.
