This Friday, January 28, we will have a Chinese New Year (CNY) Celebration Event throughout the day. All of our faculty members and students are now busy preparing for this event. On that day, students will participate in performances in the Auditorium as well as the Dragon Dance Parade. Students from each class will make their own “living breathing” dragon by using cardboard boxes, glitter, tissue paper, ribbon, and balloons, then they will perform the Dragon Dance for the AXIS community. Another important activity this week for our students is Door Decorating! Many classes have already put the CNY decorations on their classroom door. Some of them made dragon papercuttings. Some of them put on the traditional decorations – such as the couplet. The Door Decorating will be completed by next Monday, so students and staff can have a CNY door tour at AXIS anytime next week. Cannot wait to see these wonderful celebrations happen!
