Lunar New Year Assembly - Year of the Rabbit

Lunar New Year Assembly - Year of the Rabbit

On Tuesday, January 24, The Grauer School had a special assembly to celebrate the Lunar New Year and welcome the Year of the Rabbit. The event began with an introduction about the Lunar New Year by emcee and event organizer Paul-Michael Ogburn, Global Insights teacher. Mimi Robinson, World Languages teacher, introduced the movements of Tai Chi and gave a demonstration. The students watched three fun and informational videos created by Mandarin Chinese students Brandon D. '25, Kate Z. '25, Nicholas H. '24, and Anthony B. '25. Their teacher, Fupen Huang, taught some traditional Chinese greetings and movements to the students at the assembly. All of the Mandarin Chinese students also performed a fun dance, led by Amber J. '24.

At the conclusion of the assembly, students learned about Asian culture and the traditions of Lunar New Year at booths led by 7th grade Global Insights students. The 7th grade students created flyers about the activity at their table to hand out to other students, and they gave lessons, answered questions, and led the creative activities. The booths covered a variety of different aspects of Lunar New Year such as the Chinese Zodiac, Lanterns and Spring Couplets, and Chinese Calligraphy. Booths also covered aspects of Asian culture either commonly unknown or misrepresented such as Tai Chi, fortune cookies, boba tapioca balls, and orange chicken. 

This annual assembly is always an entertaining opportunity for Grauer students to learn more about Asian cultures and honor the diversity that our international students and faculty bring to our school community.
