Chinese language students celebrate the Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year—or Spring Festival—is China’s most important holiday. This year, the Year of the Rabbit, the celebration began on Sunday, January 22. Our students spent a week studying the traditions of this holiday in our Middle School Chinese classes. 

The eighth-grade students recently shared what they’ve been learning during assembly. They introduced the customs and legends of the holiday and even performed a traditional Dragon Dance!
