New Lunar New Year stamp is symbol for all
Who needs a rabbit foot when you have a rabbit stamp for luck?
According to the students and teachers at I.S. 259, the William McKinley School, luck was only part of the equation that led the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to choose their school to host the ceremony unveiling the Lunar New Year: Year of the Rabbit commemorative stamp.
The other part, they say, is the community’s strength and harmony in diversity, which includes the fastest growing Chinese American population in New York City.
I think it’s important to [the kids] because with such a large Asian population, it is nice to see their culture recognized, said McKinley Assistant Principal Carney Haberman.
