On Thursday afternoon, second graders at Stoddard Elementary, along with nearly a quarter of the world's population, celebrated the Spring Festival or Chinese New Year.

Susan Bao was on hand to teach the students about Chinese New Year traditions. Bao is a native of China and gave the students a quick lesson on Chinese foods, activities and zodiac symbols, and she discussed the meaning behind the traditional red envelopes stuffed with cash that are given to children.

Second grade teacher Mary Camacho-Cook said it was a great way to introduce the kids to new traditions.
