Dear BHSEC Families,
The end of this school year has been hard and each grade has had its challenges. My daughter, a Year 2, was not able to say goodbye to her teachers or friends in person, did not have a prom, and is attending her graduation in front of a computer. I have heard from parents in other grades that their kids have equally heartbreaking stories. But I remain optimistic for the year ahead and confident that the capable administrators of BHSEC Manhattan will find a way to engage with our students and families in a meaningful way. I have never for a moment ceased to feel grateful that my daughter attended this school, even during the quarantine.
This will be my final letter on the PTA Website as the Board is turning over and new leadership is stepping in. I want to thank everyone on the Executive Board (which happily functioned as a team rather than a hierarchy): Davis Cayenne, Anne Colantuoni, Jesse Erlbaum, Pranav Ghai, Brian O’Gorman, Beverly Miller, Rosana Pena, Shawn Starbuck, and Jessica Van Vorhees.
Congratulations to the BHSEC class of 2020 and best wishes for all. Stay safe and healthy.
Alison Bowers, President
