Confucius Institute Day and the opening of Pathfinder K-8’s Confucius classroom is Saturday, November 16th from 1:00 to 4:00.

Each year a different school offering a Chinese program hosts Confucius Institute Day. It is Pathfinder’s turn this year. Our theme is learning about Chinese culture through sports and leisure.

We will start at 1:00 with a celebration of our Confucius classroom and a few kind words from our principal. The day will also feature performances by the Dearborn Park student lion dance team and various martial arts demonstrations. Following these presentations, families will be invited to participate in activities at various stations, including Chinese jump rope, Tai Chi, and more. As families move through the stations, they will earn stamps on their passports and Chinese coins!

We will also have a drawings for fun activity books provided by Beijing University Press.
