Chinese New Year Celebration

The Foreign Language Department, Asian Cultural Club, and parents of Mandarin students are once again preparing our annual Chinese New Year celebration, to be held on January 27, 11:00am–12:30pm in the Parsley Center. These are always great festivities!

The Chinese New Year is the biggest holiday throughout Asia, celebrated at the turn of the Lunar New Year. The year 2020 will be the year of the Rat. At Strake Jesuit, we are celebrating by offering a special feast filled with symbolic flavors of the New Year.

We are expecting over 175 Mandarin students & Asian Culture Club members, as well as faculty, administration and volunteers. The event will cost over $1500.

No one needs to pay to attend. However, if you would like to donate towards the event's costs, you may make a credit card donation  below. Extra funds raised will be used for other Mandarin class or Asian Cultural Club activities. Thank you for your support and your help!
