Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
Happy Chinese New Year! The Students at the Renascence School International Orange County campus celebrated the year of the Dragon with Chinese paper cutting, creating colorful dragons, writing Chinese calligraphy and experiencing the traditional receiving of red pockets with a Chinese dollar in them. The children learned about the Lunar New Year Festival and the many festivities that take place during the most celebrated holiday in Chinese culture. They also learned to say Happy Spring Festival “春节好!,” Blessing “福” and many other words that are related to this special celebration.
