RHS Lunar New Year Lion Dance hosted by AAPI Group
Fri, Feb 9 10:30am
Redwood Heights Elementary

RHS Lunar New Year Lion Dance! It's the Year of the Dragon! The AAPI Parents Group would like to celebrate by bringing the Yau Kung Moon Lion Dancers to RHS (see here for last year's performance, filmed by RHS parent Stephen Loewinsohn). Weather permitting, the lion dance will take place on the school yard, at 10:30AM on Friday, 2/9. Parents are invited to attend! 

  • **Please note that if rain is the forecast, the performance will be moved to the cafetorium, and parents will no longer be permitted to attend due to space constraints**
  • It is tradition to distribute red envelopes during Lunar New Year for good luck. Red envelopes will go home with your children next week, and they will be learning more about how to celebrate Lunar New Year traditions in class, including art, garden, and library. 
  • This is totally optional, but a way to celebrate traditionally includes feeding the "lion" a red envelope containing money (coins, dollar bills) for good luck. We will be providing some empty red envelopes on the day of the lion dance for anyone who would like to add add a small amount of money to the envelope.
  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact the AAPI Parents Group Lead, Marissa Dominguez.
