All around the globe, more than a fifth of the world’s population celebrates Lunar New Year, a public holiday in China, Hong Kong, Macau and nine other Asian countries.
At BASIS Independent Fremont, parents, teachers, students, and guests enjoyed a “great cultural experience for the entire family” with a Lion Dance, Magic Face Changer and magic show, traditional Chinese folk music, a Kung Fu performance, a Chinese folk dance, and a Lunar New Year fashion show.
“This event is significant in that it brings the community together as one,” said Helena Shen, 4th grade parent and organizer of the Lunar New Year celebration. “Silicon Valley is rich with diversity and this is a great opportunity to promote cultural awareness and share our traditions.”
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Fremont is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
