The Kindergarten classes of Franklin School held a Lunar New Year parade on Friday, January 24. Leading up to the parade, the classes learned about the difference between the Lunar New Year and the Solar New Year and the traditions associated with each. The students learned that in China traditional Lunar New Year celebrations include fireworks, dragons, red lanterns, red envelopes filled with money and so much more. The classes worked hard to prepare for their parade by creating banners, red lanterns, paper dragons and Chinese rattle drums. The other classes lined the halls as the kindergarten classes played their drums, displayed their lanterns, and made their dragons dance to traditional music. It was a fun event for the entire school.
