Celebrating the Moon Festival with and old friend!
The Upper Elementary class welcomed our friend, Hong-Yu, back to Princeton Montessori School! He is visiting from China for two weeks, and he brought a special treat to celebrate the Moon Festival. Hong-Yu confidently presented information about the important holiday to his friends before he and his mother, Lucy, served delicious pastries that they brought with them all the way from Beijing. It was a wonderful cultural experience for everyone!
Hong-Yu spent last February in the Upper Elementary classroom when he and his family were in Princeton over the Chinese winter break. Hong-Yu previously attended our summer camp and also attended the International Montessori School (MSB) in Beijing, which is an AMS-accredited school. Please welcome back Hong-Yu, mother Lucy Luo, and father Chiang Hsien when you see them!
