Last Friday, CCAI’s Joyous Chinese Cultural Center celebrated the Chinese New Year in high form! Families fought rush hour from all over Colorado to help ring in the Year of the Snake with their children. Watching all of our beautiful JCCC students perform their songs and dances that they had been working so hard on; You could not help but smile and maybe even get a little bit teary-eyed! For some of our oldest students, this Chinese New Year celebration was their last as JCCC students as they prepare to head off to college. It is hard to believe that it has been 16 1/2 years since JCCC opened its doors in September 1996. To see our students graduate high school and go on to do great things in college…it is a beautiful thing and we are proud beyond words.
The Joyous Chinese Cultural Center and all of our events would not be possible if it wasn’t for the fantastic, passionate, dedicated parents who drop off and pick up their amazing children every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday! If you’ve just started or have been making the trip for 16 1/2 years, thank you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the opportunity to teach your children and learn what joy and love feels like.
Happy Chinese New Year! We will see you soon!
