Gates Celebrates Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year

On Wednesday February 28th, Gates students enjoyed a Lunar New Year Celebration thanks to a generous cultural enrichment grant from the Gates PTO. Lion Dancers and Kung Fu performers from Wai Lum Kung Fu and Tai Chi demonstrated their skills. Students learned the significance of this popular Chinese celebration while dancing and cheering on the amazing performers. Some of our students were lucky enough to catch flying fruit and vegetables that the Lion launched into the crowd of Gates students. Mr. Beattie was presented with a red dragon to commemorate the year of the dragon. The Gates students and staff are thankful to our generous PTO for this amazing show.
