Carlisle celebrates Chinese New Year

On January 26 the Corey dining room and auditorium were filled with the colorful celebration of the Chinese New Year. Students, teachers, parents and visitors enjoyed an afternoon of Chinese food, arts and dance. Led by Carlisle teacher and Chinese dancer Chiao Bin Huang, the public was treated to dances and music from the first to eighth graders, as well as guest artists. This year the eighth-grade Chinese class assumed many leadership roles for this event.

Members of the eighth-grade Chinese class perform a flag dance.

Students from Mr. Darasz's second-grade class perform a ribbon dance to celebrate the Year of the Rat.

Phoebe Jolly, Pam Zhou and Amanda Wang watch as calligraphers paint pictures and write characters commemorating the New Year.
