Lunar New Year Celebration Was A Huge Success!

February 03, 2020

The Lunar New Year arrived on January 25th, marking the beginning of the lunar calendar and the “Year of the Mouse”.

The week of 1/26-1/31 is PS20 Lunar New Year Spirit Week. Students and families learned from their peers of Dual Language Mandarin Programs.

Through different activities, such as a multicultural potluck, interviews (see video link below), presentations, arts and crafts, traditional song and dance, etc., we learned how people from different cultures celebrate the new year in different ways, as well as the common value behind new year celebration.

Don’t forget to watch our Student-created video for the event:

PS20 is a multicultural community. We are proud of how diverse our school is!  Stay tuned for more upcoming cultural events!
