elcome to the 2012 Green Ball, the annual fundraising
and friend-raising gala of the Charles H. Bullock School
(the “Green School”) in Montclair, New Jersey.
“Let’s Play!” is tonight’s theme, as we raise funds to enhance the
indoor and outdoor play experience for our children. After all, it’s
through creative play that children truly learn, grow and flourish!
Watch the slideshow tonight to see images of the driveway stencils,
free-form climbing structures, vine tunnel and outdoor drums and
chimes that are part of our vision for the CHB play space.
Tonight we honor our magnificent staff, especially Dr. Barbara Elder
Weller, founding principal of the Charles H. Bullock School, who was
recently promoted to Assistant Superintendent of Montclair Schools.
We will miss her strong leadership and dedication to our children.
Thank you all for making miracles of learning happen in our
classrooms every day!
