Phone-A-Thon 2016 was a great success, and we were so happy to find that people really do still answer their phones!
Our tireless volunteers ate more than a few pizzas and had lots of fun and laughs while making over 400 phone calls. We got to talk with committed donors, from 1950’s graduates to parents of current freshman — and all were enthusiastic to support the critical work the Fund does for BHS. Including our two generous anonymous match donors, we raised approximately 75% of the cost of one innovative pilot class for one year.
It really does take a village to continue our important work. We thank our volunteers for their time and effort and our generous donors for their support. Our grateful teachers and students thank you!
We invite parents of seniors to contribute to the 21st Century Fund’s Senior Gift, supporting BHS teachers as they explore their professional dreams and work so creatively with our kids. And PLEASE DON’T FORGET: email us a baby picture of your soon-to-be graduate. We’ll post on our website (click here) and our Facebook page (click here) with their names, so everyone can share in wishing them the best after June 5th.
Save the date for the Fund’s annual Gala on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at Jillian’s Lucky Strike. Same fun as before… and with a few new tricks up our sleeve! We hope you’ll join us for the only community-wide party to celebrate academic innovation at BHS.
