Happy Chinese New Year!

This week we are celebrating the beginning of Chinese New Year (The Lunar New Year). We are entering the year of the Rabbit. We will be having a little parade around the school on Friday. We are hoping to wear as much read as possible (it's a lucky colour).

If you would like to learn a bit more about the celebration of the new year, try this website. It is very straighforward. Gung Hey Fat Choy! (orKung Hei Fat Choi -- it's a phonetic translation so you might see it spelled many ways) It means "wishing you prosperity".

The children are born in the year of the Dog (juniors) or Rooster (seniors). Two seniors were born in the year of the Monkey (they have both already turned 6!).

Here is what we are reading this week!

(as you can see, I snuck in a Groundhog day book --for Wednesday)
