Happy Mid-Autumn! While we couldn’t celebrate last week’s Mid-Autumn Festival at school in person as we would normally do, we were able to help our Grizzlies celebrate at home. Our team got together to provide students with classroom activities, videos, and a live Mid-Autumn Assembly on Tuesday, 21 September.

MID-AUTUMN ASSEMBLY

During our assembly, we had a special guest – the Jade Rabbit – talk about the diverse traditions of the festival throughout Asia. We also listened to a story about the origins of the festival in China. Finally, the assembly ended with a virtual “Screen Parade” for children to show their paper lanterns, costumes, or other MidAutumn-related crafts.

Check out our Elementary Assembly and Kindergarten Assembly!

AT-HOME ACTIVITIES FOR MID-AUTUMN

We have put together resources for our students for some festival-related activities and ways to get in the spirit with their families over the Mid-Autumn weekend.
