To celebrate the year of the Ram, the school community gathered for a delicious Chinese meal thanks to Chef Steph, Taylor and Cécile Williams, the Parents Association, and many parent volunteers. We'd like to thank Cindy Han, a board member of the Chinese & American Friendship Association of Maine, who presented the traditions of Chinese New Year to the school community.
The community hall was adorned with festive decorations made by parents and students.
The menu included: wonton soup, dumplings, fried rice, egg rolls, and Chinese pork.
We ended the meal with oranges for a sweet life and fortune cookies. Students especially enjoyed stepping on sheets of bubble wrap to simulate the sound of firecrackers!
Thank you to all who helped make this event such a success. The students had a wonderful time along with the parents, grandparents and special friends who joined us for this wonderful treat! We could not have done it without all of the helping hands who pitched in to set up, prepare, serve and clean up afterwards. Happy New Year!
