Mrs. Hardin’s Class Celebrates the Chinese New Year with our International Students

The International Bible Class visited with Mrs. Hardin’s four-year-old class on Friday, January 27, to celebrate the Chinese New Year.  Mrs. Hardin’s class made Chinese lanterns and fire breathing dragons in honor of the celebratory traditions in China.  The Chinese students were able to teach the little ones words like “ni hao” (hello), “xiè xie” (thank you), and “zai jian” (good-bye) in Chinese.

It is a tradition in China for children to receive money in red envelopes from their elders to ring in the new year.  The international students wrote notes in English and Chinese to the four-year-olds to wish them a Happy New Year and put the notes in traditional red envelopes with chocolate coins.

Mr. Huitt’s eighth grade students have been studying renewable energy in their science classes.  As part of their study they designed renewable energy cars.  Each group developed a process that enabled the car to run using only renewable energy such as wind, water, or solar power.  At the end of the project groups then built an electric car and raced their designs in the gym to see whose design worked the best.  Congratulations to these winning car designers: Caleb Armstrong, Dalton Beasley, Thomas Crawford, Ryan Olson, and Ethan Thrower.
