With Thanksgiving approaching this week, I can’t help but think about how thankful I am for all the wonderful BHE volunteers. It has been a busy month and we have much to be thankful for at Bunker Hill.
To Rebecca Howard, our Corresponding Secretary, for spreading sunshine around our BHE community and taking good care of our families through correspondence and kind gestures:
To Patty Hart for great Red Ribbon Week decorations and a fun, meaningful week for our students;
To Fred Keinz for donating his time and talent to photograph Bunker Hill families for the Auction brochure; to Alice Hopkins for coordinating the photo sessions; and to Kelly and Bryan Basham for the use of their lovely yard as the setting for the photographs;
To the International Day Committee Chairs: Cathy Amoruso, Allison Brandt, Wendi Duty, Shawn Hays, Jackie Jenvey, Namrata Kothari, Jennifer Mountjoy, and Kristie Van Arsdel for a FANTASTIC day for our students to learn about the cultures of Australia, Germany, Lebanon, Trinidad/Tobago and West Africa.
To Taryn Jones and Valerie Lynn for coordinating the coat drive and Box Tops for Thornwood;
To Shawn Hays for filling the BHE “Food for Thought” cookbook orders to families who purchased them through our Big Form;
To Julie Bergen, Allison Brandt, and Jennifer Pruett for coordinating a fun and educational Colonial Day for our 5th graders and to the following Colonial Day event chairs: Kathy Carter & Donna Jackson - Doll Making, Suzanne Stiles – Candle Making, Patty Hart, Eva Gomez & Michelle Majewski – Pomanders,
Tammy Hampton – Silhouettes, Lisa Navarro-Hines – Food, Kerri Kenne – Johnnycakes, Valerie Lynn – Games, Lara Finnila – Medicine, Marcy Crapitto & Lorraine Peterson – Sewing, Rachel Matthews – Lunch Set Up and the many volunteers who made Colonial Day run so smoothly;
To those parents who brought food for the November Teacher Appreciation lunch, the teachers loved the Tailgating Favorites and to the fabulous Teacher Appreciation Committee (Kara Barrow, Nancy Carney, Karen Fraser, Kerri Kenne, Margaret Murphy, Kristin Parks and Ali Survant) who coordinate the lunches;
To the Newcomers Committee for hosting a wonderful dinner for the new parents at BHE;
To Amanda Davison, Webmaster, and Erin Brenner, E-blast Chair, for keeping our website up to date and informed with our weekly emails.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I am very thankful to be part of the BHE community.
