Moon Cakes and Hot Potatoes


Fourth Grade students select their own slices of Moon Cake, the special treat of the annual Moon Cake Festival.





Moon Cake tastes a lot different than American cakes, but they are still tasty!


First graders play Hot Potato, a game that develops rapid recall of Mandarin Chinese vocabulary and confidence communicating in Chinese among friends and classmates.

Google Expeditions

Thank you to our technology team for making this amazing opportunity possible for 4th and 5th graders across the district!

Chinese New Year and Friendship Groups

Wellman Elementary's K-5 Friendship Group celebrated Chinese New Year. They drew posters and learned about the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac (this is the Year of the Rooster).


Since Chinese New Year was celebrated in late January, students have kept busy learning the Chinese language - and the Chinese culture - in every classroom at all three schools.
