Our 5th grade students celebrated Chinese New Year 2021, "Year of the Ox" after learning about the holiday. This year Chinese New Year fell on Feb. 12th. The students learned about the customs and traditions associated with Chinese New Year. They used origami to fold the ox for decorations and used chopsticks to eat their noodles and dumplings. The noodles symbolize "Long Life" and the dumplings represent "Prosperity". Students were excited to learn about a new culture that they hadn't been previously exposed to.
