Hmong New Year Celebration at ESAA
Elementary School for the Arts and Academics (ESAA) 4th and 5th Grade students in Mrs. Helen Timm’s class participated in many events to celebrate Hmong New Year. Students heard a traditional Hmong Folktale told in Hmong by an Elder and then translated into English by his high school son who attends North High School. After hearing the folktale, the class listed the main events in the story and created a Story Quilt depicting the story elements.
Students also attended a presentation by North High students that showcased the Hmong culture. After the presentation, students from Grant and ESAA performed a traditional Hmong dance.
