Lunar New Year Celebration
The Brookvale community participated in PTA’s cultural celebration to welcome the Year of the Rat. The school courtyard came alive with festivity, red and gold colors, lanterns, a display of traditional Chinese paper-cuts, and a very friendly dragon from Ms. Ynzunza’s 1st grade class. The highlight was the Lion Dances performed by Thunder Kung Fu Academy. We sincerely thank the parents who have donated money and time to make this event possible!
