Lunar New Year
Our Lunar New Year event to celebrate the Year of the Dog will be held at New School on February 15, from 5:30 to 6:45 pm, with classroom activities happening the week before and after. Contact Angela Wong, Katharina Yoon, or Kyu Ha Lim to get involved.
Schedule of Events
5:30-6:30 Bento Boxes and Dessert
5:30-6:15 Activities for Kids
6:15-6:45 Closing (with a possible performance)
Bento Boxes will include a few savory items such as dumplings, noodles, egg rolls, and stir fry. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available. Sample activities include name translation in Chinese calligraphy and making red lanterns.
Tickets are $2 each. Purchase online to save time at the door. We recommend 4 tickets per person for food — Bento Box (3 tickets) + Dessert (1 ticket) — and 4 tickets per child for activities (1 ticket per activity). Suggested total = $8 per adult, $16 per child. All proceeds benefit the school.
Todos Juntos events are fundraisers hosted by New School families for New School Families. They are an incredible way to build community while raising money for our school.
The kick-off event was a Moana movie night at New School on December 1. Stay tuned for more events.
If you would like to host an event, please contact Rica Thomas Antoniotti. (Looking for ideas? Last year's events included BBQ/Splash Party, Valentines Craft Party, Nature Walk in the Presidio, Tide Pooling, Hogwarts Annex, New School Sleepover, Adventure Playground Playdate, and Private Movie Screening at the Roxie.)
Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead
Thank you to everyone who joined in our Day of the Dead festivities on November 3, 2017, and especially to those who organized the dance, activities, altar, and food. In addition to giving our community a chance to celebrate, the event raised nearly $4,000 to support the school. See more photos in this gallery on Heard.
