We are excited to once again be hosting our Chinese Lantern Festival! This year’s Festival will be taking place on Feb. 12th from 5 to 7 pm at our school. Come and participate in a fun evening of Chinese arts and crafts, and admire the many lanterns our students have created. We need several parent volunteers to help hang the lanterns and have hardly received any sign ups – please sign up here. If we don’t get volunteers to help, we can’t hang the lanterns! Hanging the lanterns will take place from 9:30 am to noon on Feb. 12th, and take down will take place on Feb. 16th from 10 to 11:30 am. Student lanterns are due to their classrooms by Feb. 9th.
