Thank You For Building Bridges With Us!

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Helen Keller

27 classes, 39 amazing volunteers, 5 assemblies (and one service dog!)- Building Bridges’ 6th year was a big success!

Thank you to everybody who has made it possible. Thank you to Mr. Morash and Mr. Kilgallen for
organizing the schedules with us, Ms. Derbin for all the support with the classroom activities, Mr. Solivan for organizing our panel of HS students, our Cottle teachers and staff for warmly welcoming us in their
classrooms.

Finally, we are so grateful to the league of extraordinary parents and students who not only volunteered their time but put in hard work, their expertise and their positive energy into this program. Thank you for your invaluable help.

Special thanks to Mrs. Aimee Hoffman who shared her personal story to the 4th graders and to the group of amazing HS students (Christos Bobolakis, John Bobolakis, James Galati, Anthony Gjelaj, Liana Sypher, Lily Tyler) who gave a wonderful presentation to the 5th graders. We could not have done this program without you!

Thank you for building bridges with us!
