Chinese New Year

MIMS 2021 Chinese New Year - Year of the Metal OxChinese New Year is the most important holiday on the Chinese calendar.  Each year, MIMS PTO hosts a festival to celebrate with our families and to raise money for the school. The event usually takes place on a Saturday during the 15 days of the Chinese New Year. Look for performances from all the students, a dragon dance, great food, inflatables or other fun children’s activities, and more. Students may also have a Chinese New Year party during the week.

For 2021, MIMS is curating performances from MIMS students and hosting our festival both online and drive-in movie style.
