Laughter filled the classrooms of Cherry Lane School as students participated in Global School Play Day on Feb. 1. Students around the world celebrate Global School Play Day each year. It began in 2015 by educators who were influenced by a TED Talk by Peter Gray about the positive impact that play has on children.

At Cherry Lane, the day consisted of unstructured play throughout the school day. Each student was encouraged to bring in their favorite game or toy. They engaged in play in their classrooms, while some rotated to other classrooms during the day to interact with other toys. Students played board games, colored, made bracelets, engaged in imagination play and more.

“The goal of thisdayis to foster creativity, imagination and problem solving as students navigate differentplayopportunities,” said Cherry Lane Principal Lauren Moriarty.

Throughout the day, teachers were encouraged to allow students to explore and figure out ways toplayon their own. It was a fun-filled day for the entire school community.

Students at Cherry Lane School celebrated Lunar New Year on Jan. 27. Kindergarten classes participated in a high-energy Lunar New Year parade around the school building as first and second grade students lined the hallways and cheered them on with paper dragons.  

The kindergartners dressed in their best red outfits and wore paper hats designed for the Year of the Rabbit. Some students also held red paper lanterns and played instruments such as tambourines and cymbals as they paraded down the hallways. In addition, each kindergarten class was led by a beautifully created dragon head, as seen during Lunar New Year celebrations.

Leading up to parade, the kindergarten students learned about Lunar New Year traditions and its history. Cherry Lane had parent volunteers visit the school to educate the students on this special Chinese holiday. The kindergartners also engaged in different Lunar New Year crafts and reading and writing activities throughout the month.
