In celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration, third-grade students from Academy Street Elementary School recently attended a fun and interactive in-school field trip, titled "Let's Go to China.”

With assistance from presenter Patricia Shih, the students “explored” China as they were immersed in the history, music, arts and culture of the country. Additionally, Mrs. Shih allowed a number of students to participate in ribbon dancing and traditional Chinese instruments, such as the gong. 

Prior to the conclusion of the educational event, the students engaged in a Chinese New Year Dragon parade and were given "lucky" red envelopes as tokens of appreciation for their diligent work.
