ASM’s annual Chinese New Year celebration, also known as Lunar New Year, is one of our community’s favorite traditions! The event is sponsored by our parents’ association, PACE, and it unites our community with delicious food, performances, arts and crafts, and more! The celebration continued throughout the classrooms as well. Since 2024 is the year of the dragon, our kindergartners created their own dragon made of their handprints. After School Care students created paper lanterns to honor the last day of the New year, which is the Festival of Lanterns. Some classrooms incorporated traditional Asian elements into their practical life shelves. Our community is rich in diversity and embraces the opportunity to highlight cultural traditions!
