It’s time for our thirtieth reunion on June 17! Mark your calendars and make your travel arrangements.
Many of our classmates said that they will attend, and we want YOU to be a part of this reunion! Please plan to join us on the evening of Saturday, June 17. Significant others and kids are welcome. To RSVP please click here. Have a great spring and we’ll see you soon!
Inexplicably, it seems we have arrived at our 15-year high school reunion. Many of you are probably pretty dumbfounded its been so long!
We will be holding the reunion on the evening of June 10th, 2017. We are currently trying to determine a venue for the reunion, the reason being that a good venue largely depends on how many of us are able to make it.
Walk by the big, glass windows of the Benaroya Theater lobby (nicknamed “The Fishbowl” for this reason) at nearly any hour of the school day, and you will likely see students studying and socializing. Throughout the school year, students gather in the Fishbowl, whether or not a play is in production, and laughter can be heard around the clock as students work, play, and converse. The community that emerges from The Bush School Drama Department exists nearly independently of the show cycle, and is something that Upper School Drama Teacher and director Jeremy Bryan and his students put a great deal of thought into fostering. Jeremy notes, “I think just the act of putting on a show creates a community because we’re doing something very difficult and very rewarding as a group. Sometimes those people are your friends, sometimes they’re people you just met, but at the end of the show, you feel close to all of them.”
On Monday, April 17, Upper School students participated in Wellness Day. Students began the day by viewing Screenagers, and then went to two breakout sessions. Students could attend two of twenty-three different sessions by guest speakers covering physical health, community health and activism, mental health, nutrition, the workplace, and life as an independent adult. Thirty alumnae/i, parents, parents of alumnae/i, and one current student contributed their time and wisdom to make the day a success.
Thank you to everyone who supported Celebrate Bush – Funding Flight. Together, we raised over $420,000 for financial aid at The Bush School! Thank you for coming together to bid on auction items, raise your paddles, and make a difference as a community.
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!
