Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Many thanks to everyone who came out to make the Bishop School Clean Up Day and Electronics Recycling Fundraiser on Saturday, April 5 a huge success! It was great to see so many families, community members and school staff giving their time to make the school grounds so beautiful and our fundraiser so successful.

Thank you to Andra Shea for leading the grounds clean up and playground repair projects; Elena Jakubiak and Amy Moyer - our awesome Used Goods team; Chris Carlsmith and Brecky Peabody for their work on the Electronics Recycling Fundraiser; Sarah Lynch for her work on the Compost Give-away and Seed Fundraiser; Eliza Burden for her work planning the garden projects; Amy Speare and Skye Stewart for taking on all publicity and spreading the word to the community; Bill Moyer for taking pictures during the day (check the PTO's Facebook page!); custodian Greg Wright for his help all day long. Many thanks also to Stop & Shop for donating snacks and Not Your Average Joe's for providing lunch to everyone who turned out to help our school.

Last but certainly not least, a HUGE THANK YOU to Laura Fuller and Jayme Purinton for their leadership and coordination, making this day a huge success.
