Batesville students to celebrate Chinese New Year 

Parents invited to the celebrations

(BATESVILLE, Ind.) – Students enrolled in Batesville’s Mandarin dual language immersion (DLI) program will celebrate the traditional Chinese New Year on February 9. 


Batesville Primary students will kick off the festivities with a school-wide parade in traditional red clothing. 


After the parade, Kindergarten children will participate in making dumplings, a staple of Chinese cuisine. First graders will learn about the Lunar New Year and participate in traditional activities such as family feasting and dancing. 


Meanwhile, second graders will participate in rice ball making, make bubble tea and play a chopsticks game. 


All BPS DLI students will receive the customary gift of red envelopes containing chocolate coins. 


Parents of current DLI students are invited to participate in the celebrations with their children.


Batesville Intermediate and Batesville Middle School students will also participate in a variety of activities and celebrations throughout the week.. 


Registration for the DLI program starts on February 5 and parents are encouraged to contact the school to learn more information. 


“We are excited about offering incoming kindergarten families the unique opportunity to be in

the ninth cohort of this Mandarin DLI program, the only one of its kind in an Indiana public K-12

school system,” said Paul Ketcham, BCSC superintendent. “The foundation the DLI program

provides will lead to the opportunity for students to earn college credits in Mandarin when they reach Batesville High School.”
