The students of Oxford Prep-Saddleback Valley ended a week of Lunar New Year celebrations with a special morning assembly in Honour Hall at our Lake Forest campus. Here, traditional dances were performed for our Kindergarten through 8th grade students. Professors and Champions became part of the performance when volunteers were brought on stage to learn a few new steps as well.
Oxford’s fourth grade Champions were next to dazzle the audience with a performance in Mandarin. All students at Oxford Prep are exposed to the benefits of world languages, including Mandarin, to develop a facility for understanding, speaking, reading, and writing in a particular language.
Thank you to World Language instructor, Mrs. Shawna, as well as the professor and parent volunteers who made this Lunar New Year celebration memorable!
