Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
On February 19th, the Chinese teachers shared the Chinese New Year traditions with students at the Renascence School International. This marked the start of a new year in China and the turn of the lunar calendar. The L4 & L5 students made crafts for the Year of the Goat and students enjoyed some traditional food such as mandarin oranges, dumplings, and fish (fish crackers). The L10 students learned the basics of Chinese calligraphy, while the older students learned to make red pockets, a traditional Chinese greeting, with special holiday messages inside.
