Happy Lunar New Year!
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, the Dixie Chinese Dance Club was invited to perform at the Downtown Lexington Public Library on January 22. They represented Dixie very well.
The FCPS STARTALK pre-camp activities began on January 9th. The theme is Explore Chinese through STEAM. It hosts two activities monthly. There are a total of 43 participants including students in kindergarten to 5th grade. The participants made and tasted dumplings and noodles in January. They had a lot of fun with the hand-on activities.
Students in K-3rd grade experienced Chinese New Year celebrations as well. They did paper cutting and origami, made lanterns and practiced lion dance. They also can retell the zodiac animal story, name and identify animals.
4th grade students are learning about their favorite sports/games. 5th graders are learning about cities around the world. All 4th-5th graders learned about Beijing opera in the Chinese class and made Beijing opera masks in the art class.
