Sunny Hills Hosts Chinese New Year Celebration

Sunny Hills Hosts Chinese New Year Celebration

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 21 March, 2018
Sunny Hills Elementary hosted its first Chinese New Year Celebration this year. Parent Biwei Dong met with Principal Leslie Lederman earlier in the school year, asking for a way to celebrate Chinese New Year due to the importance of the holiday in the Chinese community. Through Ms. Dong’s hard work, and the work of many families who also volunteered their time, Sunny Hills was able to share this festive holiday with its students. Families provided all the decorations, set up and took down the event, and organized a kung fu presentation for students to watch. The celebration was held during afternoon recesses so not to conflict with instructional time, giving students the option to go to recess or come to the celebration. Both kung fu presentations were well attended! Sunny Hills is very grateful to its families for providing this opportunity for all students, and welcomes more celebrations like this one from other groups within the community!
