Lunar New YearMason Intermediate fourth graders in Jamie Dicks and April Raleigh's classes learned all about Lunar New Year traditions during a presentation on Thursday, February 15.

MI fourth grader Kyle Yan's mom, Weilan Wang, spoke to the classes about the Lunar New Year - sharing family traditions and cultural traditions that 'twenty percent of the world's population celebrates.' 

Lunar New Year is the most important holiday in China, and some of these holiday practices include cleaning the entire house, preparing a big dinner the night of the New Year with items like fish, Chinese soup, noodles, and rice. 

"The students were excited to learn about their Chinese Zodiac Sign, as this is the year of the dog," added Raleigh. "In our classroom, we always embrace things that are new to us and learn from those teachings. Hearing about the Chinese New Year was a way to bring diversity and a new perspective into the classroom."
