Fourth graders in Annette Lopez’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School celebrated Chinese New Year. One student in the class shared a PowerPoint presentation in Chinese, which he then explained to the class in English. He also spoke to the students about the meaning behind the Chinese traditions that are followed during Chinese New Year, such as red envelopes with yen inside. The student’s parent brought in decorations for the classroom as well as dumplings and noodles for the students to try with chopsticks.
