ARCHIVE: Thank you for your support of WinterFest!

Thanks to all who came out and supported WinterFest!

A very special thanks to the all-volunteer WinterFest committee who worked tirelessly for the last 4 months including:  Co-Chairs Ellen Langan and Amy Stringer-Mowat;  Seema Aghera, Lil Amatore, Olivia Annicq, Defne Aydintasbas, Alice Chung, Carolina Della Valle, Liz Edelstein, Camilla Enders, Maiken Erstad, Linda Hager, Katie Murray, Rachel Quitkin, Kim Riback and Samantha Slarskey.

Thanks to all the set-up, break-down and day-of volunteers – both students and parents – this event couldn’t have happened without your participation!

Thanks to all those who donated tasty treats to the bake sale, and to Brandon and Katie Conovitz for the great WinterFest tote bags!

And thanks to BFS Staff Superstars Karen Edelman, Emily Cowles and the Business Office; Tony Soll, Jeremy Hawkins, David Gardella, Peter Soto, Thomas Keasling, Andres Puigbo and Don Hovey;  the PS and LS teachers and students who made crafts for the fair; the MS classes and dance teachers that entrusted us with their space; and the amazing Facilities and Security team for working all those extra hours to help put this show on.

Special thanks to Spark of Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Construction Kids, and Chess at Three for the fantastic workshops they conducted at the event!
