Happy Lunar New Year!

Cook Elementary celebrated it's annual Lunar New Year festival with the Bolsa Grande High School VSA Club as our special guests! Additional performances were enjoyed by Ms. Wolf's 1st graders who were directed by Mr. Pham, our Vietnamese Bilingual Aide. A large group of 2nd - 6th grade Boys and Girls Club Students shared 2 traditional Tet songs, as well.  Cook takes special pride in this annual celebration, as it was the first school to begin the tradition in GGUSD started in the early 1980's by our own legendary retired teacher, Mrs. Thanh-Thuy Le. A very special note of gratitude to all who helped make this celebration so wonderful, including many parents who donated funds to help pay for the bus to bring the Bolsa Grande students to Cook. So many parents, staff members and community members contributed to make this a truly special celebration!!  Thank you!!
