 Thurgood Marshall Students Celebrate Chinese New Year

2/6/2020 1:00 AM

​Students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades studying Mandarin at Thurgood Marshall School learned Chinese calligraphy and traditional paper cut to decorate for the Chinese New Year. The celebration started Jan. 25 with New Year's Eve and will end on Feb. 8 with the Lantern Festival. Students learned that other Asian countries besides China celebrate the New Year and call it the Spring Festival. Students cut out the character 春, chun means spring and looks like a plant above a warm sun. The character 福 means blessing. The eighth grade class used bamboo brushes to make couplets to hang beside our classroom door to wish others peace during all seasons. Seventh grade students made Chinese friendship knots, and the sixth grade students made lanterns to celebrate.
