Chinese New Year Parade & Celebration

K-8th grade students are participating in a multicultural arts project with Tina Gramann. Thanks in part to a grant from Salida Council for the Arts as well as local businesses, the students will participate in a movement and arts project called Happy Chinese New Year, Salida!  Students will explore traditional dragon and lion movements, and will develop movement, costumes, and props in January.

The project culminates in an opportunity for students to present their work to the public at a community event and celebration on Saturday, February 4 at Longfellow Elementary. Students from other schools in the community will also participate. The event begins with a parade showcasing the students’ movement and costume construction, and after the parade, families are invited to stay for arts and crafts, music, and a multicultural potluck. The event is free to the community. We hope you can join us! The event begins at 6:00pm, however students will be asked to arrive a little earlier to get into places, approximately 5:15pm. More of those details will be coming soon.
