      Congratulations

      congats-2020-2

While the end-of-year events and Bush Class of 2020 Commencement we all anticipated changed, students’ accomplishments—and our desire to celebrate them—did not. We created this webpage as a place for students, families, faculty, and staff to see all the fun videos, photos, and gratitude boards celebrating these amazing students.
 
Drop in an encouraging note or favorite picture onto the KudoBoard for the Class of 2020, 2024, and 2027. Give a shout out on Padlet to Janet Bisignano, Jay Franklin, Melissa Manning,  Esther Reiquam, and Ben Wheeler for their dedication and service to Bush students and families over the years.

Please email communications@bush.edu with any questions or follow-up. 
We hope you enjoy seeing all the fun photos and videos from the end-of-year, and have a great start to summer.

We could not be any more proud of the Bush Class of 2020. They are fearless, opinionated, creative, brave, loving, open-minded, adaptable, clever, fun, eclectic, and much, much more. Take a peak at this video from yesterday’s virtual Commencement ceremony in which together they describe their class, and turn their tassels from right to left to make the transition from Bush students to alumni.

      Daisy Chain

      daisy chain


The junior class daisy chain is a long-standing Bush graduation tradition. On the morning of Commencement, juniors gather together to weave daisy chains, creating an aisle of flowers. The seniors process down this aisle, making their final walk as Bush students into the ceremony. This year’s Commencement was held virtually, and the Eleventh Grade students continued this tradition. With love and creativity, juniors wove their flowers together through film. The virtual daisy chain held the same space at Commencement—featured at the beginning of the ceremony to honor this exceptional class.

The Upper School Athletics Awards Program took place on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.  While the Athletics Department staff would have preferred to host the event in person, it was a pleasure to share the evening with the Blazers Athletics community online via a Zoom webinar. Close to 200 devices were logged in to follow the program, which included the celebration of this year’s Blazers sports accomplishments, and a keynote address given by former NCAA and WNBA basketball standout and Blazers basketball coach Talia Walton. Click here to view the program, and here to view the recorded video of the event

We want to share a special thank you to the faculty who are retiring this year, and share our gratitude with Middle School Director Jay Franklin for his years of service. Since we won’t be able to gather in person, we have created gratitude boards on Padlet where you can post photos, artwork, and words of thanks to this great group of Bush educators.
