  • New Year’s party at Family Strengths Network

     

    For the third year, Elena Lapteva, an instructor at Family Strengths Network, organized a New Year’s party for the Russian play group she instructs. The children gave a performance based on a Russian fairytale and narrated poems, had contests and were visited by Grandfather Frost (Russian Santa Claus) and his granddaughter Snegurochka (which can be translated as snow maiden), who brought presents for the children. There was also New Year tree decorating. The play group is for Russian and international children and their families living in Los Alamos and White Rock, who are interested in supporting their native language.
