Happy Lunar New Year!

The Lunar New Year is celebrated in China, Korea and Vietnam. This year is the Year of the Dragon!

The grade 1's were born in the Year of the Rooster (Chicken) (EXCEPT FOR THE 2 STUDENTS WHO WERE BORN IN JANUARY -- they are Monkeys! ) . The Grade 2's were born in the Year of the Monkey.

We made some streetscapes complete with fireworks in the night sky, lanterns waving in the breeze, and a dragon parade (or a lion dance).

Gung Hay Fat Choy! (the spelling is phonetic, so you may see many different ways of spelling this message) -- it means "wishing you good fortune and happiness"
