This week, the Parents’ Association Passport Series hosted a Chinese New Year Celebration, where approximately 60 parents attended along with faculty and staff. Head of School Lisa Lyle kicked off the celebration by blowing the 8-foot Tibetan horn. In addition, attendees learned about the various traditions and symbolism of the Chinese New Year. They enjoyed a variety of Chinese foods and desserts, thanks to the parents who provided them.
“We are so enriched by your families’ presence in our MICDS community, and we are honored that you have chosen to be a part of our School,” said Lisa Lyle during the event, where parents from a variety of nationalities were in attendance. “It is important that we as adults celebrate one another and model what it looks like to interact and learn from those whose backgrounds are different from ours.”
