Welcome the Year of the Ox! Lamplighter celebrated Lunar New Year in early February with books, crafts, and activities commemorating this cultural event. The Lamplighter Parents’ Association was instrumental in making this a special day for students by providing decorations, activity-based lessons, and video messages to use in the classrooms.

Early Childhood classrooms made paper lanterns, practiced writing Chinese characters, and learned how to draw an ox. The LPA also provided unique Lunar New Year gifts of red envelopes and plushies for all Lamplighter students. These favors were loved by the students and made for excellent mementos of this cultural celebration at school.
