The Bush Alumnae/i Community Keeps Growing
A big congratulations to the Class of 2014 on joining our caring, engaged and accomplished alumnae/i community on June 8, 2014! Class of 2014 graduates are heading to great colleges this summer.

We want to thank many of you for your involvement in the life of the school during this past 2013-2014 academic year. Our Career Day, featuring a number of incredible alumnae/i, as well as Alumnae/i Speaker Series and College Brunch were great highlights for Upper School students. Many thanks to everyone who made our Reunion Weekend 2014 a success. The Tour of Hidden Art on the Bush Campus was memorable and would not have happened without alumnae/i interest in this project. Special thanks to past teacher Chick Chickadel for being an outstanding Hidden Art tour guide and to Dennis Evans for doing research of artworks on our campus.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our alumnae/i events during 2014-2015 academic year. If you want to organize an event, or have a great idea for our alumnae/i program, please let us know. We love hearing from you!
