LIVING TRADITIONS WEEK this year is focused on Asia.  With this in mind, we recognize the beginning of the Lunar New Year in many Asian countries.  The Chinese Lunar New Year is a two week celebration starting on the first new moon of the calendar year January 22 and ending on the full moon February 5.   2023 is the year of the Rabbit and in Chinese culture the rabbit represents peace, prosperity and longevity.  The Lantern festival comes at the end of the new year festivities and it celebrates family gatherings and society.  Here at East Midvale, our Living Traditions night falls during the lantern festival and families can make lanterns that will fill our halls and represent our school family!

LIVING TRADITIONS FAMILY NIGHT – Families are invited on Thursday February 2 from 5:30-7:00 pm to see and learn about countries in Asia.  There will be grade level displays on Thailand, Afghanistan, Maldives, Kuwait, Nepal and Japan.   There will also be food, an art walk, a fun activity and entertainment.
