BHS Holiday Traditions 2011 Is Thursday

Guest Post from Mr. Chiocca - BHS Multicultural Club Advisor

On Thursday, December 22nd, 2011, the Multicultural Club will be holding their annual Holiday Traditions event in the cafeteria during the first three periods at Burlington High School.

Holiday Traditions is a school-wide event for over a 1,000+ students; that provides an opportunity for students to express their diverse cultures and backgrounds.  Students and their families may prepare food, design a poster and explain to others about their culture as well as go around and learn about the cultures of others.  There is music, fun, dancing from the BHS Hip Hop Dancers and drumming from our elite BHS Drum Line.

Some of the food served "pot luck" will be Simosas (from our Indian tables), Sushi (Japan), Hamantaschen (from our Jewish table), Baklava (Greece), Pierogis (Poland) and Empanadas (from Puerto Rico).  Burlington Florist was kind to pledge to donate flowers and vases for all event tables, and a few local Dunkin' Donuts have pledged boxes of Munchkins too.

So... it's this Thursday, Dec. 22nd, and it goes from Periods 1 - 4.  Seasons Greetings to all!
