Happy Lunar New Year!

Dear Families:



To all those who celebrate Lunar New Year, we would like to wish you and your families a very happy celebration.


February 16, marks the Lunar New Year for members of the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese communities.
To celebrate, people may light firecrackers, hang poetry, enjoy a family feast (oranges and apples are considered lucky fruits), exchange gifts (adults may give children laisee, red envelopes filled with money), and buy new clothes or new shoes. Fossil Hill PS will acknowledge this occasion through various activities that promote sharing and understanding.
We wish all staff, students and Fossil Hill community members celebrating Lunar New Year a happy and joyful celebration in the company of family and friends.
Carolyn Lamy and Joanne Lomanno-Aprile





Lunar New Year is a cultural and religious celebration for many Chinese, Koreans and Vietnamese. This is the year of the Dog. People born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006 were also born in the year of the “Dog”. Many rituals are associated with this festive occasion. They include cleaning house, paying off debts, settling old arguments, and other means of making a "fresh start."
