Chinese Dragon Visits Foothills

Kate Elliott

Mrs. Elliott’s class has loved learning about ancient China. They spent time learning about the archeological find of the Terracotta Army created by the first Chinese emperor for whom China was named, Qin (pronounced Chin) in the year 246 BCE. Then, on January 31st, the students celebrated Lunar New Year by performing a lion dance in all the classrooms of the school. The students also made lucky red envelopes for each student in the school and put a surprise inside each envelope to wish every child "fu" (luck) and wished all students “Gong Hei Fat Choi” (Happy New Year).
