Somerset Winterfest 2021 Wrap-up

Big shout thank-you to our Somerset Superstar staff and volunteers. We had a great night of our winter fest, Light up the Night. More than 600 students and their family members attended this wonderful event. This wonderful event brought our diverse cultures together to celebrate the many winter festivals and holidays held throughout the world! It has affirmed the identities of students and built their cultural competency. It was an evening that SHINE and illuminated what makes Somerset shine in our darkest months. 

Many families donated a lot of items such as glow sticks, and provided fantastic lights and kiddie pools. Our Somerset Superstar staff spent days in setting up the light and decorating the school, and have been serving students with hot chocolate during the event. A number of volunteers spent hours in setting up the exhibition stands and interpreting the culture to audience. Special thanks to Bellevue Fire Station 4 (Factoria) for demonstration, providing education, and their support to this event. We would like to extend our thanks to Cub scout 629 for helping decorate the classroom with all kinds of lights and clean up Somerset Garden for this event. All these efforts make us a strong community. Thank you all for your contributions to making it a great and fun event!
