The fourth grade students were treated to a Chinese New Year presentation by two of our students’ parents. They shared with the students the history of China, some cultural aspects, the traditions of the Chinese New Year, and some interesting facts. The students were able to sample some traditional snacks, received lucky red packets, and practiced writing their Chinese Zodiac animal in calligraphy. The students learned so much about another culture and gained a stronger appreciation for the diversity within their own classroom.
