East-West celebrated Lunar New Year with activities on February 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
February 1st- Gallery walk by Japanese language classes to view Lunar New Year projects on display by Korean and Chinese classes.
February 2nd- Students in Chinese and Korean language classes gave presentations on the Lunar New Year. Students from each of those languages, as well as Japanese language students, rotated between the Chinese and Korean presentations. There were trivia quizzes with traditional dumplings and rice cake soup served as prizes for trivia answers.
February 3rd- Each Chinese and Korean language class hosted its own celebration during class time.
On the second day of celebrations, we were fortunate to have members of the community and the press join us: Vivian Warfield, Alfred Rankins, Dennis So, World Journal, Korea Times, and Sino Television.
