Chinese New Year @ Driscoll 2/14

Dear Driscoll Families:

I am excited to share that the Driscoll School will hold its annual Chinese New Year celebration on February 14, 2018. Chinese New Year is the first day of the New Year on the Chinese calendar. It is also known as Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival.

Two 45-minute assemblies will be held for our Pre-K through 8th grade students and faculty next Wednesday. Students learning Mandarin have been preparing in their classes for this event and will sing songs, perform dances, and watch student made videos in honor of Chinese culture and language. The assemblies will also include a spectacular lion dance, which should be a treat for all in attendance.

Below is the program for each performance:

8:30am Show (Pre-K, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8)
