Slideshow: All-State Parade
On February 7, 2014 there were two interesting events that were held at BMU - A Chinese New Year's Dragon Dance and a reenactment of the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Parade. Have a look!
Blue Mountain elementary students celebrated the lunar new year with a dragon dance. The dragon was borrowed from the Asian Studies Outreach Program at UVM. One of the program's scholars, Gerry Gatz, gave presentations about Chinese dragons to grades k-5 earlier in the day. The pre-school met the dragon with “fire-breathing” dragon puppets they had made. Delicious traditional almond cookies were made by the BMU APPS class to share with the dragon-watchers. As part of her senior exit project Cindy Hoang was chief dragon handler.
Ms. Burn's fourth grade class reenacted the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Parade.
