The Portland Public Schools has been named a Confucius Classroom in concert with the University of Southern Maine’s Confucius Institute. In becoming a Confucius Classroom, the district is able to enrich its offerings in Chinese language and culture and expand Mandarin classes at Deering and Casco Bay high schools.

To formally celebrate this recognition from Hanban, the Confucius Institute Headquarters affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education, an inaugural ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 21, at 10:30 a.m. at Deering High School auditorium.

The program ceremony will include tree planting, ribbon cutting, and Chinese performances. A Confucius Classroom plaque will also be awarded to the Portland Public Schools. Leaders from the Portland Public Schools, the University of Southern Maine and the city of Portland, and dignitaries from the Chinese Consulate will be attending the event. A reception will immediately follow after the program.
