Forest Avenue fourth graders, who have studied Mandarin since the first grade, performed a skit in Mandarin entitled, “Little Tadpoles Look for their Mother”. The event gave students an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations in Mandarin and learn about different aspects of Chinese life and culture by participating in traditional activities including Chinese Yo Yo and Hacky Sack as well as origami and calligraphy.

The event was sponsored in part with a grant from the Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence. For more information about VFEE, or to make a tax-deductible donation, visit its Web site.
