It’s the Year of the Rooster 4714! Happy New Year!

 


Chinese New Year
Gung Hay Fatt Choy!  Thank you families who sent some goodies for us to try, and parents who came to help.  We tried some new foods and learned how to use chopsticks.  We learned about different cultural traditions and compared them to other cultural celebrations and practices.  It is always so interesting to see how we are alike and different in our mixed American traditions.

Here are some other places students can find out more:

You can also learn how to write the “fook” symbol, which means blessing and good fortune near the bottom of this page.

Here is a page with some foods people eat during the New Year and what the food symbolizes. http://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/chinese-food/chinese-new-year-food.htm
