Dear Budlong Families,
As we close out another school year, let us celebrate the accomplishments of our students. From singing and dancing in Budlong Meets Broadway, viewing the Bud-ing Artists Gallery, performing in Budlong Takes Broadway, attending awards assemblies, conducting science experiments, taking college visits, to walking in the graduation processional, 2017-18 gave us memories that will make us smile for years to come.
Thank you to all of our parent groups and parent volunteers. Your help and input is greatly appreciated. We cannot do all we do for our students without you! We are happy to announce that FOB is now a 501c3 not for profit organization. We will be sending out information on our new Amazon Smile account soon. We hope that with every purchase you make, you will make our students smile through your donation. We will be hosting one final meeting of the year for FOB, Friends of Budlong, on Wednesday, July 18th, 6:30 p.m. at The Atlantic located on 5062 N. Lincoln Ave. I encourage you to attend and meet current and prospective Budlong families.
