Chinese Lantern Festival – Jan. 30th from 6 to 8 pm
Our PTA is excited to host our annual Chinese Lantern Festival! Students are encouraged to get creative and make lanterns that will be hung the week of Jan. 30 – Feb. 3. As always, the class that creates the most lanterns will win an in-class pizza party! Lanterns will be due back to classrooms on or before Jan. 27th. Monday, Jan. 30th, from 6 to 8 pm, families are invited to come and see the lanterns and visit the Chinese language classrooms to take part in various Chinese arts and crafts. It is sure to be a fun, festive evening!
Parent Volunteers Needed for Lanterns – We are in great need of parent volunteers to come help us hang lanterns the morning of Jan. 30th, and take down lanterns the morning of Feb. 3rd. Please sign up here if you could help us out! Last year, we hung over 2,000 lanterns, so the more helpers, the easier and faster it will be!
