THANK YOU: Heights PTO Lion Parade
A huge thank you to Julia Li and Jessie Fang for organizing the Lion Parade to celebrate the Chinese New Year, as well as Jenny Xue from Cottage, who coordinated this event through the all the elementary and preschools. Thank you to Ning Luo, Rita Chen, and Melanie Young for performing the lion parade, and other parent volunteers who assisted, along with students Wynne L., Charles H, Emma Z., Yulin C., Elsa Y., Michelle Z., Sophia H., Charlie Q. who provided the music, colors and energy to the parade!
THANK YOU: Educational Programming
The educational programming committee planned a fun event for the second grade this week: Physical Changes in Matter via the Discovery Museum. The children had the opportunity to learn about solids, liquids and gases in a hands on workshop using dry ice and liquid nitrogen.
Some fun recaps: each child got a chance to feel carbon dioxide gas in their hands. They did experiments with dry ice and liquid nitrogen. The fruit shown, were immersed in liquid nitrogen. The banana becomes hard (frozen solid), which is then used to hammer a nail into a wooden board. The balloon deflates on contact with the very cold liquid nitrogen.
Thank you to Andi W., Jen E. and Vinu K. for organizing this and all such programs throughout the year! Students have such fun while learning!
