News - Celebrating Asian Pacific Islander Heritage

IMG_3914The month of May was packed with events and extracurricular activities celebrating the Asian Pacific heritage of the Carlos Rosario School’s student body and staff.
Professionals from the Chinese Community Cultural Center came to both campuses to give multiple Tai Chi classes, while Taiko drummer Mark H. Rooney taught an interactive workshop about this Japanese style of percussion. Students also learned about Polynesian dance, the traditional Chinese Lion dance, and Chinese calligraphy. The month culminated with a 2-hour festival where students showcased their cultures through music and dancing. The event also served as a tribute to the late school administrator and teacher Eddy Sandjaja, who passed away earlier this year.
