Happy Chinese New Year!

This year (2012) is a Year of the Dragon. The dragon is considered the luckiest year in the Chinese zodiac. Normally, CISS celebrates the CNY all-school assembly with local performers from the Shanghai community. However this year was a bit different. The students learned various traditional dances such as the Ta Ge (Green) Dance, Kung Fu Fan Dance, Lion Dance and Dragon Dance. The students were extremely proud to showcase the performances they were working so hard on, and it was great way to show respect and appreciation for Chinese culture. I am proud to be part of a community that has such dedicated students and staff, and can only wonder how we'll ever be able to top this year's performance next year!
