Lynbrook High School students in the Diversity Club and Culture Club rang off the Lunar New Year at Marion Street Elementary School as they led an engaging craft activity on Feb. 16.

Through their visits to elementary students, Diversity Club and Culture Club members get experience hosting lessons that they put together. Starting off, they walked students in grades 1-5 through the traditions and history surrounding the Lunar New Year, including why the current year is the year of the dragon. The high schoolers then handed out materials and helped their younger peers put together craft dragons in celebration of the holiday. In Christine Castellano’s class, fourth graders got creative with colors before cutting out their dragons and making puppets for a parade. Several high schoolers got the chance to visit younger relatives in the classroom, such as freshman Evan Cao who spent time with his younger brother, Christopher.
