Parker Daley, News Editor

On Tuesday, February 5, the community celebrated Chinese New Year with traditional activities, decorations, and food, all sponsored by the Chinese Knot Club.

Club president Wendy Hu says “[Chinese New Year] is our big event for this club.” It offers students the opportunity to experience a small fraction of a different culture.

Hu says, “We decided to decorate the school first. We put all the lanterns in the dining room, and some Chinese words in front of the library door.” They also set up stations both in the Innovation lab and the small gym” where they led activities and games, such as calligraphy and ring toss. They also had a fashion station, featuring traditional Chinese clothes; a Chinese knot tying station; and a paper lantern-making station.

In addition, Epicurean prepared a meal that included traditional Chinese dishes, complete with fortune cookies.
