A Solar Term is a period of time in the lunar calendar that's based on the sun's position that reflects the changes in climatic conditions. At MSB, our Dual Language students benefit from learning about all 24 Solar Terms, their historical and current function.  

Saturday, October 23 marks the term of Frost's Descent. It is the last solar term of autumn, referring to the transition from autumn to winter. The dew is turned into frost because of the plunging temperature. It’s the time to admire chrysanthemum blossoms.
