A Virtual Recultivation of the Bosque School Community
Join us in honoring our past, celebrating our present, and embracing our future during our Founder’s Days celebration on Thursday, May 6, and Friday, May 7. In honor of Bosque School’s founder, Dr. Peggie Findlay, we welcome all of our Bosque School community members of past and present—alumni, parents and guardians, grandparents and grandfriends, staffulty, trustees, supporters, and friends—to reconnect with the Bosque School community during this two-day virtual event.

If you only have one hour, be sure to register for our Grand Finale event on May 7 at 7:00 pm.
If you have two hours, add on the Outstanding Alumni Awards ceremony on May 6 at 6:00 pm.
If you have more time, consider visiting some classes.
26 Hours for 26 Years
Our Founder’s Days celebration kicks off Thursday at 8:00 am with a virtual visit to our original campus—where we will reflect on the school’s first ever Morning Meeting—and will conclude Friday at 7:00 pm with an exciting grand finale event. We will also host our inaugural Outstanding Alumni Awards ceremony on Thursday at 6:00 pm, followed by alumni class gatherings. 

From 8:00 am to 9:00 pm each day, we will be releasing a story every hour, representing one year of Bosque School’s history. These stories will be curated by our Milestone Sponsors. Stay connected to our social media channels and web pages throughout the day as we will be sharing Bosque School’s robust history.

This match will double the impact of each contribution. Additionally, an anonymous donor will give $10,000 if we reach our goal of 260 donors. Every gift helps support our students and mission.

Please help us spread the word about Founder's Days to all your Bosque School friends and family! 
We can’t wait to gather virtually with all of you as we launch our Founder’s Days celebration. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Philanthropy Team.
