The BASCS family of teachers, administrators, students and their families celebrated their Annual Staff/Family Thanksgiving dinner together at the Bergen Middle School campus. As families entered, students had an opportunity to post a leaf on a “Tree of Thanks” to write what they are thankful for this holiday season. The evening then began with Brennen Dopwell, Maria Cunneely, Jeschelle M., Darius T., and Aaron M., students from our high school, who performed a few songs for everyone to enjoy. Mrs. Cecere and Mr. Guvercin welcomed everyone and a prayer was led by Father George, from Our Lady of Mount Virgin Parish in Garfield.
Executive members of our iSupport Education Foundation, Mr. Philip Patire and Mr. Durim Memedi, then went on to honor and announce the winners of the Thanksgiving placemat contest. The three winners from our Bergen schools were third grader Adrianna R., seventh grader Matthew K., and twelfth grader Leonardo L..
As the evening progressed, it was nice to see everyone reconnect with staff, family and students as they enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal prepared by Maschios. This was joined by several other tasty dishes and desserts that were brought by many to enjoy.
We would like to thank our families, staff, Central Office staff, Maschios, and the iSupport Education Foundation who made this event a success. We would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
