The halls of May Moore Elementary School were transformed into the paths of a cultural celebration as students dressed in red, wore decorative masks and headdresses and played percussion instruments during their annual Chinese New Year celebration.

To commence the Year of the Tiger, students paraded through the halls singing out
Gung Hay Fat Choy!, the call of Happy New Year, and waved their origami umbrellas and lantern crafts. The dance of the Lion-Dragon highlighted the celebration as students dressed up as the mystical creature, hoisting the head and body in the air and marching together. Following the lively parade, students sampled Chinese cuisine and listened to ancient tales of the Chinese culture, learning their history and heritage.
