Otisville Elementary school's smallest learners celebrated Chinese New Year in a big way.  Students explored the Chinese culture through music, literature, and art projects.  They used their penmanship skills to write Chinese language characters that represent numbers 1-5.  Students explored the Chinese Zodiac and learned that each year is represented by an animal.  This year is the year of the goat.    The activities were culminated by a celebratory parade led by a luck filled red dragon.  Gung Hay Fat Choy!
