Bringing the World To Our Students

Bringing the World To Our Students

During the first four weeks of the new school year, our LaSalle II Chinese Program introduced China to our kindergarteners. The photos show how happy the 5-year children are holding flags of US and China as they dance and sing Hello to China and Hello to the United States. First graders were introduced to eight countries around the world.  Notice how they enjoy locating countries on the world map. Our seventh graders performed in a dance program at the 2019 Chinese Cultural Festival on September 28th at Whitney Young High School.  All of these students had a good time and said it was a lot of fun.  Bobby and Sophia commented that learning to coordinate with each other as members of a team was a valuable lesson. Natalie and Eleanor mentioned that they put a lot of hard work into practicing but they learned a lot of “cool things” about Chinese culture. This is the third time these students had an opportunity to bring what they learned in class to an outside audience.
