Chinese lanterns and dragons hung from the classroom walls and students donned masks as third graders at Abbey Lane Elementary School celebrated the Chinese New Year. For the past several weeks, the students have been studying the geography, government, culture, famous sites and history of China and have compared this newly acquired information with life in the United States. The students also studied what life as a child would be like in both countries.
As a culminating activity, class parents delivered Chinese food for all of the students to taste.

The winning teams, a grade 6 team and a grade 7- 8 team, then represent Salk at the countywide contest at the UCPN Roosevelt Center. Students participating are encouraged to bring in monetary contributions to sponsor them in the contest.
Each year the National Art Education Association sponsors a contest for students to design a flag for their annual conference.

Congratulations to Audrey for her fantastic work.
