Year of the Rooster.

English:

"I wish all those celebrating across the Asian diaspora a happy and healthy Lunar New Year. As the proud city of immigrants, we cherish every opportunity to come together and embrace our city’s rich heritage. That is why we made Lunar New Year an official school holiday. While we celebrate on a Saturday this year, we hope everyone is able to share this special time with their loved ones. Happy year of the rooster, a symbol of hard work and diligence.”

Chinese:

我祝願所有慶祝農曆新年的亞裔人士新年快樂和健康。在這個令人自豪的移民城市,我們珍惜每一個讓大家一起迎接本市豐富傳統的機會。這就是我們爲什麽把農曆新年定為一個正式的學校假日。我們今年是在一個星期六慶祝這個節日,我們希望每一個人都能與其親人共度這個特別的時光。雄雞是刻苦努力的象徵,祝大家雞年愉快!

Korean:

"음력 설을 쇠는 아시아계 가족 여러분께 행복하고 건강한 명절이 되기를 기원합니다. 이민자들의 도시로써 뉴욕시는 커뮤니티가 하나가 될 수 있는 모든 기회를 소중히 여기며 뉴욕시민들의 풍부한 문화유산을 공유합니다.이 때문에 뉴욕시는 음력 설을 공식 학교 휴일로 지정하였습니다. 올해 설은 토요일이며 이 특별한 시간을 사랑하는 가족과 함께 보내시기 바랍니다. 근면 성실의 상징인 닭의 해를 맞이하여 복 많이 받으십시오.
