In the World Language Department of Arlington Public Schools, we seek to develop in
students the ability to communicate effectively, think critically, and participate actively
and responsibly in a multilingual global society.
Despite a delay due to a snow day, Ottoson Mandarin students celebrated the Chinese New Year in style this year! Mandarin teacher, Na Lu-Hogan, organized an evening event that included games, calligraphy, a trivia contest, as well as a martial arts performance and student songs and skits. The event was well attended and a fun and festive way to ring in the new year!
