Let’s CeleBAArate!

lunar_new_year_TM2014Gather at school on Friday, February 6, at 4:30 pm to welcome the Year of the Sheep! Ms. Chow, Ms. Gano, Ms. McChesney, and the School Spirit Team have been hard at work planning a spectacular Lunar New Year Celebration, which will include Trays of Togetherness, ribbon dancing, face painting, awesome art stations, and performances by the Franklin High School Lion Dance Team and the extracurricular enrichment karate class.

Dana Varon has coordinated a mouth-watering line-up of food trucks for the event: Chopstixmobile (Asian fusion), Wicked Pies (pizza), and Curb Jumper Street Eats (sliders) will be parked on Findlay. Happy New Year, Falcons!

MATERIALS, FOOD, AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

During Chinese New Year, guests are o ered an assortment of treats from a Tray of Togetherness (chuen-hop) – a tray filled with
an assortment of symbolic foods to begin the New Year. Our trays will feature some traditional foods (red melon seeds for happiness,
candied melon for health, kumquats for prosperity), but other easy snacks as well. Families are invited to contribute dried fruit,
mandarins, kumquats and other easy to eat healthy snacks (no nuts please!). Please leave any contributions in the front office in the box marked Lunar New Year Monday through Wednesday of next week. We’d also love to borrow any sectioned trays!

There are lots of opportunities to help out with Arts and Crafts Tables and pre-event materials preparation. Help is also needed for set-up and clean-up. Please click here to sign up.
