Wu Ning (Ewa Makai Middle School, 2018-2019) and LeeAnn Manuel (Ewa Makai Middle School, 2018-2019) received a CLP grant to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The celebration was part of our school’s project “Tiger Fest.” On the day of the celebration there were events to attract students and community members. They were able to taste Chinese food like dumplings and Tanyuan and have some tea with the food. They made art crafts, such as papercutting, Chinese knotting, lanterns, and hanging ornaments. They were also able to try calligraphy by writing spring couplets and Fu sign. During the celebration there was a display of students’ work and a performance for the audience, showing what the students have learned in Chinese class and club. We also conducted a field trip to Chinatown on February 5th to watch the New Year Parade and enjoy authentic Chinese food.
