Celebrating Chinese New Year at McDowell Elementary

On Jan. 26 McDowell elementary school celebrated the Chinese New Year. There was a dragon parade down the halls and every class got fortune cookies. The hall was filled with Chinese decorations that Mrs. Valcov had put up. That afternoon, Japanese musicians, Ryoko Itabashi and Sasha Ayers visited the school and played different Japanese instruments. They also spoke to the students about life in Japan and showed them their beautiful kimonos. It was a super fun day at Dr. S. E. McDowell School.
