    Happy Lunar New Year! This last weekend many Cascadia families celebrated Lunar New Year! Welcome to the year of the rat! Today at community meeting we heard from a handful of students all about how their families celebrate! One of our students told the story of the monster Nian from Chinese culture. We learned about yummy foods, red envelopes, and sweeping! Does your family celebrate Lunar New Year? What are your special traditions?

     We are always looking to highlight special cultural traditions that our students and families celebrate! If you have something you'd like to share don't hesitate to reach out to your students teacher!

    This Wednesday at Community Meeting we learned all about the Hindu Festival of Lights. We watched two video's that shared about the tradition of Diwali. You can check the video's out yourself below! Several 5th grade students who celebrate Diwali also shared with us their family traditions. We learned about some of the yummy foods (lots of food!) and the lights and the noise that make up part of celebrating Diwali. Students also had a question and answer session.

    Our Race and Equity Team is working with families and students to highlight the special celebrations and traditions our students celebrate. If your family has a tradition you'd like to share please let us know! You can fill out the online survey here.
