Stage II Celebrates Year of Rooster with Heifer Project Contribution!

This February, Stage II students raised enough money to donate fifty flocks of chicks to Heifer International! As part of a study of the Lunar New Year, the students created special clay rooster tiles in honor of 2017- Year of the Rooster. On February 27, our project culminated in an official Red Rooster Day – they sang Chinese New Year songs, listened to some rooster experts in our own community, did a chicken dance together, and had a visit from a surprise rooster guest. After school, parents and staff were invited to view the display of our beautiful tile art and make a donation to Heifer to take their favorite tile home. It was a joyful culmination of our study and a wonderful way to- as first grader Zoe B. says- “Make the world a better place with our art.” Coordinator of the event, Jarie Ruddy wrote a letter to Heifer saying, “Thanks Heifer for helping us learn that art and roosters really can save lives!”
