Champaign County Elementary Schools Outreach

Lunar New Year is the most significant and widely celebrated holiday for many Asian cultures. It marks the beginning of a new year and is associated with a myriad of cultural traditions. The Lunar New Year Celebration program is a growing collaboration between the Asian American Cultural Center and local Champaign and Urbana elementary schools and libraries. While many children know about popular holidays, such as Thanksgiving, not many know about Lunar New Year. This program teaches local children and families about the cultural significance and history of Lunar New Year. It also engages college students in the community through civic engagement and sharing the wealth of their cultural backgrounds. If you are a teacher who is interested in having your local Champaign- Urbana elementary school be a part of this program, we will be having two teacher in-services at the Asian American Cultural Center on Monday December 3rd and Tuesday December 4th, 2017 at 5pm. Please RSVP with our Assistant Director, Christina Carpio, by November 30th, 2018.
