Chinese New Year At Public School 47
After learning about some Chinese traditions, the kindergarten classes at PS 47 started the Chinese New Year off with a bang. Students created red envelopes (red symbolizes good luck in the New Year) in which their teachers, Mrs. Daudelin and Ms. Folchetti, placed coins. As part of the Chinese tradition, students ate noodles with chopsticks and had their very own parade, led by a paper dragon. The students wished everyone "Gung Hay Fat Choy," a Happy New Year.
