RSI kids celebrating the Chinese Moon Festival

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson

Students at the Renascence School International celebrated the Chinese Moon Festival in class last Friday. During Chinese class, teachers shared the Moon Festival story with their students. Some classes colored the picture of moon cakes and “cheng-e” (the main character in the story of moon festival). Other classes created and decorated their own Chinese lanterns. In Chinese culture, the Lantern is a symbol for family reunion and prayer for good fortune. Trying different flavored moon cookies is always a fun treat for the students on this special holiday!

RSI Welcomes International Students to Summer Camp

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson

This summer RSI students have enjoyed spending time with international student visitors from China! The international students have been mixing and mingling with RSI campers. They have been fully immersed in our English program and have developed conversational skills throughout the day by gardening, writing, and playing with new friends.
During their time here, students and staff all formed special bonds with these students and made many fun memories together. RSI creates a unique environment where international students can learn English by playing and interacting with RSI students, while RSI students also get a chance to practice their Chinese language skills. These special friends will be missed! RSI wishes them the best on their journey and can’t wait to see them again soon! Read More
