Mandarin Chinese Immersion School celebrates Moon Festival
The Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion School of the Houston Independent School District invited parents, students and staff to their campus Friday, Sept. 28 for a variety of festivals.
Attendees enjoyed the presentations of the mid-autumn festival, also known as the Moon Festival, Chinese Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival, a popular lunar celebration of the Chinese people.
To celebrate the heritage and culture of China, the students planted seeds in the school garden, made paper lanterns, ate mooncakes and listened to storytellers in Chinese.
"We want to make sure that in addition to the language instruction, our students also get cultural instruction," said PTO President Leslie Culhane, in a district press release. "We want to make sure they are exposed to a broad range of cultures, most importantly the Chinese culture, which is what this school is all about."
The Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School serves children from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. It is at 6300 Ave. B, in Bellaire.
