What did your school do this year to celebrate the Chinese New Year that just occurred? If you are like most of us who don’t live in China, probably not much! However, over at the Blountstown Elementary School (http://www.blountstownelementary.org) they decided to go all out this year.

Their Chinese New Year celebration consisted of having the children create traditional face masks to welcome in the new year, create hand-held signs with the different animal symbols for each of the the years, and celebrate with traditional Chinese food. The best part of this program is that they had a photographer on hand to capture all of the festivities. These photos have now been uploaded to the school’s website and parents and guardians can now take part in the festivities which will live on long past the start of the new year!
