February 8, 2016 marks the first day of the Chinese New Year and it celebrates one of the most ancient calendars still in existence today. The lunisolar calendar also marks a new zodiac year, ending the 2015 year of the goat and bringing on the year of the monkey! Students at the Renascence School International enjoyed celebrating this special Chinese holiday with in-class activities such as calligraphy and traditional Chinese songs and poetry. The students made dumplings and traditional food like sticky rice and wontons with a little help from teachers and parents!
