In celebration of the Lunar New Year, the High School East Asian Arts and Craft mentorship students visited the K-8 Campus.
"We were happy when we saw the note on the white board at the school entrance welcoming us to the lower campus," said one of the High School mentorship students.
They wished some former teachers a Happy Lunar New Year.
The mentorship students also taught some of the younger students about the crafts they learned in mentorship.
East Asian Arts and Craft mentorship students taught one group of students in kindergarten to second grade to make a red lantern using recycled water bottles.
“The red lanterns represent wealth, fame and prosperity,” said High School East Asian Arts and Craft Mentorship leader Mengling Moulden, who also teaches math. “Red lanterns are used to celebrate all kinds of occasions of joy and harmony in festivals such as the Chinese New Year and the Mid-AutumnFestival. They are also used at weddings, grand openings, and other special occasions such as family reunions.”
The mentorship students taught another group of second and third graders how to make a replica of firecrackers.
Moulden said one of the goals of the visit is to build a positive relationship between the students at both campuses.
“The most touching part is when some youngsters hugged the high school students after they made the lantern,” said Moulden.
"We loved the little ones," said several of the mentorship students as they returned to the High School campus.
