Mothers Pack the Halls at Boulder Hill Elementary

The fourth annual Bring Your Mom to School Day last Friday drew about 240 mothers, who got to sit in on classes with their sons and daughters.

It was Mother’s Day a week early at on Friday.

For the fourth year in a row, the school opened its doors to mothers – about 240 of them accompanied their kids to school for the morning, and got to sit in on classes and find out just how their sons and daughters spend their day at Boulder Hill.

Bring Your Mom to School Day was a natural outgrowth of Boulder Hill’s popular Bring Your Dad to School Day, and is organized each year by the Boulder Hill Fathers Forum.

“It gives them a snapshot of what their kids’ experience at Boulder Hill is like,” said Principal Jeff Schafermeyer.

The school also hosted a Heartland Blood Centers blood drive on Friday, and mothers – who stayed at the school from 8:30 to 10 a.m. – took the opportunity to donate blood on their way home.

Another great story, Andres! Boulder does such great stuff for the kids, the parents and staff. Boulder Hill Bobcats ROCK!!! A great day to spend the morning with my 3 sons on my birthday!

What a great event planned by Boulder Hill! I'm sure the students and their moms have great memories from such a special day. Thanks for always inviting the community into your school. Keep it up, Boulder Hill.
