Photos of students at the lunar new year celebration

Happy year of the rabbit! 

The Lunar New Year is an important holiday celebrated in China and other Asian countries. The festival originated thousands of years ago and marks a new annual cycle based on the lunisolar calendar. The traditional Lunar New Year festivities last about 15 days, beginning in mid to late January and ending in February. 

In celebration of the Lunar New Year and the diversity of our school district, students from Kromrey and Glacier Creek Middle School and Middleton High School hosted a festival in the MHS north commons. 

Thanks to the support of local businesses and community members, families and other guests enjoyed a variety of fun stations and performances, including: 

  • Dumpling Making stations 
  • Bubble tea and Chinese cuisine 
  • Dragon dances 
  • Lantern riddles 
  • Photo booth 
  • Face painting 
  • Calligraphy station 
  • Raffles and more!
