2024 is the year of the Dragon  

Saturday, February 10th, marked the beginning of the Lunar New Year, which is celebrated throughout the world and is the biggest holiday in many Asian countries. 

Each year is associated with an animal as well as one of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. 2024 is the year of the Wood Dragon.

Programs recognized the Lunar New Year in age-appropriate ways.

Toddlers listened to stories and learned about traditional foods, created dragon-themed work, and looked at beautiful Chinese calligraphy.

Primary children had special works and parents visited the classroom to share their traditions when celebrating the Lunar New Year.
Lower Elementary students learned about how the Lunar New Year is celebrated in many countries in East Asia. Students enjoyed making a dragon puppet.
Mrs.Zhang, a Primary teacher, was the Upper Elementary special guest during their Lunar New Year presentation. Engaging students in an interactive activity, Mrs.Zhang guided them through an activity involving paper tiles that represented the 15-day festivities.  This hands-on experience provided an insightful exploration of the rich traditions associated with the Lunar New Year celebration.
