chinese new year assembly

Students at Cherokee enjoyed an assembly on Thursday, February 15, to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Cherokee and DPM Mandarin students performed songs and dances to usher in the Year of the Dog while a professional team wowed students with a lively traditional Lion Dance.

This wonderful school wide event was made possible by a Spirit of 67 grant.
