Five Reasons Why You Want to Register Now for Founder's Days

Dr. Jessie Barrie, Head of School
Dear Bosque School community members of past and present—alumni, parents and guardians, grandparents and grandfriends, staffulty, trustees, supporters, and friends,

You all should have received an email on Monday, April 19, announcing that registration is now open for our upcoming Founder’s Days celebration taking place May 6 & 7. Here are five reasons I hope EVERY one of you will register today to join us:

  1. It’s good for your health. As humans, we are wired to connect and connection helps strengthen our emotional and physical health. Joining the Founder’s Days events is a great way to connect with others whose lives have been impacted by their relationship to Bosque School. 
  2. It’s convenient. Regardless of where you are, you can come “back to Bosque” without leaving your couch through this year’s virtual events, while we eagerly wait for a future in which we can gather in person again. 
  3. It’s togetherness. After over a year of social separation and isolation, we are all in need of being in community. This video provides a great metaphor for how Founder’s Days will bring us all back together. 
  4. It’s recultivation. Research shows us that students learn from people they love. Alumni, visit the class of a favorite teacher. Celebrate the accomplishments of fellow outstanding alumni. Reconnect with your classmates in virtual reunions.
  5. It’s connection time. You each have a unique connection to Bosque School—to favorite teachers, to classmates or fellow parents and guardians, to grandparents and grandfriends who share a love and support of their grandchildren’s success, or to community partners who believe in the value of an outstanding educational opportunity to foster opportunities for youth and economic development. Each of you is part of Bosque School’s fabric over the past 26 years, and we hope you will engage in this opportunity to honor Bosque School’s past, celebrate our present, and embrace our future. We would not be the school we are without YOUR influence and impact.

Review the full schedule of events for Founder’s Days and then CLICK HERE to register today. Encourage your Bosque School friends to join you in attending events together; your extension of a personal invitation could be just what they need to feel connected.

I can’t wait to celebrate Bosque School with YOU on May 6 & 7!
