Students held a traditional parade to celebrate the arrival of Chinese New Year. Some of the youngest students at the private school wore red shirts and carried brightly-colored lantern art pieces. They also got to operate Nian the dragon as they paraded around the school. "We like to kick off the new year with a festive cultural celebration," Lizette Augustine, early childhood director at Henderson International School, said in a news release. "The younger students enjoy showing off artwork created by their own Visual Arts team and being 'chased' by the dragon monster." This Lunar New Year marks the Year of the Rabbit, which is a symbol of prosperity in Chinese culture.
