PK-4 Celebrates Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is China’s most important festival and holiday time.  There are 12 Chinese zodiac animals used to represent years.  2019 is the year of the Pig.  Pigs are a symbol of wealth.  Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.  To mark this special occasion, Michelle Polovich, PK-4 Teacher, assisted her class in making special decorations and headgear to honor Chinese culture.  Students were also encouraged to wear red or traditional Chinese clothes.   The students began the celebration with a parade through the school.
