Grade 1: A Campus Kite Parade!

On a beautiful sunny day in March, first graders got to fly their homemade Japanese carp (koi fish) kites that they made in art class.
In Japan, Children's Day is celebrated each spring by flying colorful windsocks that resemble koi fish. The koi fish, a highly regarded symbol in Japanese culture, embodies good luck and qualities that parents want for their children, including perseverance, courage, and strength. When flown, the carp kites look as if the fish are swimming in the sky. Take a look at the first graders' creations!
