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.
