During the Lunar New Year (also known as the Chinese New Year), the MICDS campus buzzes with activity! In the Lower School, 1st graders had their chance to take part in an annual tradition—the Lunar New Year Parade. Students walked around the Beasley cafeteria carrying traditional symbols of the New Year and playing percussion instruments. The Upper Schoolers had their own celebration in the Blanke Room the same day.
On Thursday evening, Head of School Lisa Lyle also hosted Chinese students for a celebration in her home. There, students and families enjoyed traditional Chinese food and participated in a few New Year rituals. A great time had by all!
