Taste of Bear Creek

This is a very fun event celebrating our wonderful diverse school community.

We have seen so many yummy possibilities over the past 3 years and have learned so much about all of the wonderful cultures that make up Bear Creek. 

 

The PTA will provide the serving plates, forks, etc.
