    Why We Celebrate Global Awareness Week - Fulfilling our Mission

    John Suitor, Head of School
    The BCD mission states in part that we are committed to developing responsible, globally aware citizens. But this “ideal” isn’t just the catalyst we use to promote our desire to evolve, it is also very much a reaction to the existing diversity within.

    Celebration of Cultures Potluck – Wednesday, January 25th from 5:30pm – 7:30pm in the gymnasium
    All BCD families are invited to share in an international potluck as we celebrate the cultural diversity of the BCD community. Bring a dish to share that represents your family’s heritage or an international dish your family likes to eat. Heck bring pizza! We don’t care - but don’t miss out on this year’s event.
     
    Other fun ideas! Consider marking your dish with your family name, the country of origin (and flag), family member who passed the recipe down, family stories, etc. Not a chef? Well then bring other items to display and share such as: collections, family artwork, photos, artifacts, etc.
     
    Musical entertainment will include both from talent within our community as well as outside musicians we have hired. The lineup includes 3rd grade students singing traditional Swedish songs with Mr. Parker, a professional bag piper, and Hawaiian ukulele playing by 8th grader Hoben Chargualaf.
     
    Model United Nations – Thursday, January 26th

Parents are encouraged to come view this event from 11:00am – Noon in the gymnasium.
     
    Preschool Olympics – Friday, January 27th at 8:30am in the gymnasium

This year’s line-up includes: team relays, marathon, bobsled, rhythmic gymnastics, soccer, rowing, duathlon, and throwing sports. Below is a short video clip (only about 50 seconds) from a couple of years ago to help get you fired-up.
     
    The opening ceremony begins with a dramatic Parade of Nations as the children march into the gym on Friday, January 27th at 8:30am with “torches.” Please mark your calendar and plan to join us!
     
    Special Guest - Friday, February 3 from 1:45pm-2:30pm in the gymnasium
