Josiah Quincy students ring in Year of the Snake
By Ling-Mei Wong
The Josiah Quincy Elementary School students celebrated the Year of the Snake on March 1, after Winter Storm Nemo postponed the event originally planned for Feb. 14.
Fifth grade students performed a lion dance, followed by Chinese songs. A Chinese zodiac chant from the second grade was performed in Mandarin. Several dances showcased the students’ talent and a recorder ensemble accompanied a chorus.
“Our school has a lot of extracurricular activities that are part of our education, not just academics,” said Principal Joshua Ho.
The celebration included tumbling and dancing by the Flying Dragons gymnastics students.
“You are one of the best schools in Boston and I’m so proud to represent you at the state legislature,” said Aaron Michlewitz, state representative for the 3rd Suffolk district. He joined the students in performing “Gangnam Style,” along with Principal Ho and Felix Arroyo, at-large Boston city councilor.
