BMS Staff Thanks Parents & PTO

The BMS teachers were treated to a wonderful lunch last Friday in the library, courtesy of the PTO, and it was a huge hit -- and much appreciated during Teacher Appreciation Week. Salerno’s and Super Sub collaborated on our meal and knocked it out of the park! Todd Rotondo and Paul Guanci, both BMS parents, were a pleasure to work with and made it so easy.  BMS students and families sent in delicious desserts along with a beautiful cookie tray donated from Woodbery Food Market. Thank you also to Ann Gavin, Rose Simeone and Kristin Guanci for coordinating and decorating.  The tables were set with tablecloths and flowers, which made it extra-elegant!
