Chinese New Year

 For Chinese New Year Ms. Vickie visited Antioch and gave a presentation about Chinese New Year customs.  For lunch we enjoyed Chinese food from Vickies Restaurant in Swansea.

Now that the snow season has finally arrived, please remember that the Antioch School follows Fall River's school closing decision.  If the Fall River schools have a snow cancellation, we will also.  In the event that Antioch needs to cancel school independently of Fall River, we will let you know!
