Chinese New Year Celebration! Join us this year on February 15th for our Fourth Chinese New Year Celebration! T-shirts are now on sale until Dec. 20th. Check out the cool design! Order forms have been sent home and are also attached here. It will take place on February 15th from 6:00 to 8:00 in the evening. We will have live entertainment and many activities for the students. The students will also be performing Chinese folk songs. Each class from grades 1 to 5 will be singing. The middle school band will perform a selection of Chinese songs. Internationally renowned storyteller Dan Keding will be sharing stories with us as well. Some of the other activities will be Chinese calligraphy, Chinese chess, Chinese riddle competition, Beijing opera mask painting, as well as Chinese landscape painting and fan and lantern designing. The students will spend a good deal of time in class helping to get ready for the New Year’s, both by learning their songs and also helping to make decorations for the school. We will also need some parent volunteers to help with activities. There will be some requests later for volunteers but if you already know you’d like to help, please contact me (Mai Laoshi) Mark your calendars for February 15th and get ready for some Chinese New Year’s fun!
