SECTION II: 5th Grade “Leave a Legacy” Campaign
Dear BHE Fifth Grade Families,
It’s hard to believe our fifth graders will soon spread their wings and fly off to middle school! From itty bitty kindergarteners to pre-teenagers, Bunker Hill Elementary school has provided an environment that has allowed our children to thrive. In an effort to “Leave a Legacy” and show gratitude for the wonderful years at BHE, the fifth graders have participated in a beautiful art project which will leave a lasting impression!
Bunker Hill, along with several other area schools and community patrons, has purchased one of 50 supersized butterflies, to be part of the Butterfly Festival project by Newspring. These beautiful butterflies are popping up around our community as symbols of transformation and represent Newpring’s mission of making positive social and economic impact in the Spring Branch community. Our fifth grade students have had the amazing opportunity to breathe life into our very own 5-foot-wide, solid metal BHE butterfly. Inspired by our talented art teacher, Sarah Rimboch, our 5th grade students uniquely designed circular, collaged patterns and were given the choice to sign their motif. Ms. Rimboch brought the students’ unique and individual designs together creating a unified piece of collaborative art which will be superimposed onto the butterfly structure and displayed at BHE for many years to come. The butterfly is affixed to an upright structure and can be relocated in the event our school is rebuilt. For more information about this special project go to the link newspringcenter.org/butterfly-festival/
We are asking 5th grade parents to support the “Leave a Legacy” campaign with a monetary donation. The funds raised in association with this project will continue to sustain the great programs, and experiences that make Bunker Hill such a tremendous elementary school.

We are hopeful that all BHE 5th grade families will make a monetary donation to our “Leave a Legacy” campaign. Your donation will assure that our Fifth Graders and the families of the Class of 2018 will continue to impact this school long after we have said our final goodbye.
With grateful hearts,
