Chinese New Year
For several years Miraloma Elementary students of all ages have proudly participated in San Francisco's annual Chinese New Year Parade. Under the auspices of the Chung Ngai Dance Troupe, a Chinese cultural and performing arts group based in Chinatown, students have learned a variety of traditional Chinese dance routines. Performing in the largest Chinese New Year parade that occurs outside of China has been an honor and unforgettable experience for our Miraloma children.
The Chung Ngai Dance Troupe also performs a Chinese lion dance at Miraloma, and Miraloma students perform the lantern dance prior to the lion dance at the upper yard. Parents are welcome to watch and enjoy the celebration for Chinese New Year.
The Scholastic Book Fair is held in the library. Miraloma receives a percentage of all books sold at the fair.
Volunteer! Parents are needed to help set up the books when they arrive, restock shelves, help kids check out and find books during the event and break down when the event is over.
