Students in Lauren Behan’s class at the Kindergarten Center in the Lynbrook Public School District marked the Lunar New Year via a celebratory parade on Jan. 17.
Students learned all about the Lunar New Year, which signifies the beginning of a new lunar calendar and involves a large celebration in China. Celebrations typically include a parade with entertainers dressed and dancing in elaborate dragon costumes.
With their own papier-mâché dragon, the class led a parade through the halls of the Kindergarten Center, helping to give their peers a taste of the holiday. Classes gathered outside of their classrooms to catch a glimpse of the colorful display that mimicked dance moves associated with the holiday.
