We will be learning a lot about chinese culture and customs in preparation for celebrating Chinese new year on February 3rd. The school-wide celebration of Chinese New Year will be the evening of February 10th. The chinese classes will be doing a performance that night, so be sure to mark your calendars.
As part of the discussion on community, we will be talking a lot about doing our jobs well, being polite, and contributing. So if you have time, it would be great to talk with your child about the jobs they have, the people they effect, and about the people in their community that help them. Also about traditions they may have and not be aware of, since we will be learning about many Chinese traditions and traditions from other cultures that differ from their own.
