International Leadership of Texas Students to Celebrate Lunar New Year

Richardson, Texas, Jan. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It’s not just a year of resolutions, but also the Year of the Rabbit! At International Leadership of Texas (ILTexas), our students are excited to celebrate the Chinese New Year, commonly referred to as, Lunar New Year. At ILTexas, all students learn English, Spanish and Chinese as part of their everyday curriculum. These charter-wide Lunar New Year celebrations allow students to immerse themselves deeper into the Chinese culture, while showing off their language and performance skills.

Our campuses will come alive this weekend with events showcasing the traditional and bright Chinese culture. Activities and games for b-roll and interviews will include: Dragon Dance, Loop the Rabbit, Beijing Opera Mask Painting, Chinese Calligraphy, Handmade Chinese Paper Lanterns, Dumpling-Making, and much more!

We invite members of the media to join us at whichever location is most convenient. If you plan to attend, please call or text Ally Crutcher or Caitlin Madison and we will arrange for interviews.
