May 29, 2018 7:59 AM -
The BRIDGE Graduation Tea, held in early May, is a long-standing tradition at Leyden. An event known for heartfelt, candid stories about academic, social and emotional growth, it is a time for remembrance. Students speak individually of the challenges they face, and how they have managed to overcome obstacles thanks to their teachers' guidance and dedication. Teachers share funny anecdotes, and speak with pride about their students and how they've matured and mastered skills that lead to independent living. They also give each student an award that reflects his or her strength, such as Best Writer, Best Sense of Humor and Most Responsible.
