Chinese New Year, Four Winds, and Musical!

We've had a PACKED last two weeks before vacation begins. Here are some highlights!

We celebrated Chinese New Year on the 16th. Students challenged themselves to make the illusive Tangram perfect square,

used math to color Chinese lanterns,

and created their own lanterns to bring luck and happiness in the new year!

On Monday, our Four Winds team came to teach the students about skulls. First, the students learned about how animal teeth are adapted to what they eat, and practiced eating foods with different parts of their mouths.


Unfortunately, some of the kids were missing their front "nippers!"

Then they had a chance to check out some real animal skulls! They were fascinated!

Finally, it was On With the Snow for Wednesday's performance night. I didn't get a good stage pic, but here is our behind-the-scenes photo! I couldn't be prouder of our group and thought the show was fantastic. I hope you enjoyed it!
