My Students

Our school district has focused on offering foreign languages to elementary school children for over 30 years. We are honored that the partial Mandarin Chinese immersion program is at our school, which includes about 300 students. In the program, our students learn Mandarin Chinese language through listening, speaking, reading, writing.

Our Chinese New Year Celebration is an annual program, which provides a great opportunity for all the students, teachers, and parents to enjoy and experience Chinese culture.

The week-long celebration includes various activities to make learning meaningful and fun. This opportunity will impact approximately 1200 people and more.

Our Chinese New Year Celebration program has become a tradition at our school since 2007. It has been enhancing the students' language learning and global awareness to better prepare them to be 21st century citizens, learners, and leaders.

My Project

Our 2020 Chinese New Year Celebration will include a variety of activities: a school assembly, professional lion dance, guest speakers regarding language learning, Chinese food tasting, and school decorations. Our students will create Chinese artworks to decorate our hallways, stage, learning commons, and classrooms.

The Chinese lanterns will add a great touch on our students’ artwork to create an authentic traditional Chinese holiday environment.

Also, we will save the lanterns and reuse them every year.

We believe our annual Chinese New Year Celebration provides a great opportunity for all the students, teachers, and parents to enjoy and experience Chinese culture. Decorations play a big role bringing this to life!
