The Chinese New Year officially begins February 5 through February 19, 2019 – the year of the Pig. Memorial Hall School will be closed, Tuesday, February 5th in observance of the Lunar New Year.
he Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.
The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch, and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang, the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.
Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.
Thank you Jessica Cao for asking the SAT Prep class to help the Mercer Arboretum with their greenhouses!
Something teachers or students can learn from my experience is that we have to overcome our fears and not let them control ourselves because we can’t know our capabilities if we are afraid. – Leslie Servin
