CHINESE NEW YEAR PARADE
The 2024 San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade will be on February 24, 2024! CLIP will participate.
Practices will happen weekly after school starting early December 2023. Stay tuned for more information!
The Muir/CLIP San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade Team was started by CLIP parent volunteers in the fall of 2004. The parade team is a self-funded and volunteer-run program. Participation is open to all students at Muir and to CLIP middle school students.
Volunteering is critical to the success of the parade team. Volunteers ensure that practices run smoothly and that all logistical details are handled so that the students can shine during their performance on the big day.
ABOUT CLIP ART
CLIP Art is a language/cultural enrichment art class funded by parents’ direct donations to CLIPCO. CLIP students get CLIP Art (taught in Mandarin), as well as regular art (taught in English, and funded by parents’ donations to PTA). CLIP Art is taught once a month, and each class is 1 ½ hour-long. The class structure is comprised of presentation, discussion, application and debriefing.
CLIP ART CURRICULUM
Each month our CLIP Art teachers show the students a presentation on a different artist or art form. The teachers make sure to tie in elements from the students’ curriculum, such as language arts, geography, science, history and social studies. During the presentation, a lively dialogue in Mandarin almost always ensues!

Twice a year, Muir holds a Scholastic Book Fair. Parents can pre-pay for their children or the students may bring money in to buy books.
Along with the Scholastic Book Fair, there is also a Chinese book fair for students to buy Chinese books.
