The students welcomed in the new year by reading Chinese folktales, fairytales and tall tales. Using their Chromebooks to research China, students learned about the Chinese culture. To celebrate, the students received traditional red envelopes and made Chinese new year banners and crowns.

The fourth and fifth grade student council members at Tooker Aveune, led by advisor Mrs. Christiansen, discussed the pros and cons of social media. After discussing some of the negatives, the students acted on one of the positives. Fred Arsenault, a WWII veteran now living in Canada, posted on social media that he will be celebrating his 100th birthday next month. His one request was to receive 100 birthday cards. The students helped make his wish come true by creating 37 cards.
