Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
On Monday, February 11, students at the Renascence School International Orange County campus celebrated a very important Chinese holiday, the Chinese New Year! According to the Chinese Zodiac 2013 is the Year of the Snake, which begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014. The Snake, also called the Junior Dragon, is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. All of the classrooms were filled with festive decorations. The students sang Chinese New Year songs and did some fun activities related to the New Year. Lots of red pockets were given out, some of them contained real Chinese dollar bills. They children enjoyed learning about some of the Chinese New Year traditions.
