Chinese Lantern Character Counts Ceremony 2:12-2:45

Students will go outside and have a seat (weather permitting). Teachers will announce each character trait and the Dream Team and Cool Ray student who was voted on by their peers.

  • Teachers will light the lanterns
  • We will announce each person
  • When everyone has been called we will then have the students release the lanterns.

We will probably need to talk to Kevin about a fire extinguisher.
