Happy Lunar New Year! Lafayette first-graders’ parade

Thanks to Luckie for sharing photos from a Lafayette Elementary tradition – the first graders’ Lunar New Year parade. She reports, “Children from the other grades lined the halls to watch, cheer, and sound their noisemakers. Included in the parade was a dragon, musicians playing drums, and lots of rabbits, as the Year of the Rabbit has just begun. The first graders also enjoyed Chinese noodles, oranges, and sweets.”

    I attended Lafayette Elementary back in the 50’s, but moved to MN, my home state after first grade, where I currently live. What fun to see my old school doing well these many years later!! Thank you for brightening my day! I work in an elementary school in suburban Minneapolis and our Chinese Immersion students celebrated the New Year this week as well.

Sorry, comment time is over.
