On Wednesday, April 17, Bridger was alive with the 350 parents, students, and neighbors who came to celebrate the different cultures represented at Bridger. We enjoyed performances by several classes (Maestra Yesenia, Julia, Ms. Jessica, and Mr. T), as well as student performances with their families. Seventh graders Tenzin Dhargyal and Tia Joseph both performed dances with their family members- what a treat! The crowd was wowed by the Mexican folkloric dance of the troupe El Ballet Folklorico Sol Azteca, with their bright dresses and lively performance.
After the performances, families got to enjoy some time making crafts together (paper lanterns, Indian rangolis, woven bracelets and tissue paper flowers). It was so fun to see adults and children together getting creative! The end of the evening was the "sweetest" part with tastes of desserts from around the world. We enjoyed Vietnamese butter cookies, Hong Kong rolls from China, Honey Cake from Russia and Mexican Tres Leches cake.
A big thank you to all of the Bridger staff, community volunteers and parents who spent countless hours to make the night run smoothly. Also, we are especially grateful for PTA's support, who provided the funding for the evening.
