Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, June 8 was the first in-person elementary promotion for both Hawthorne Elementary School and Horace Mann Elementary School. The promotion ceremonies for fifth-grade students were the first events of their kind since the district-wide reconfiguration in 2019.
In attendance at both ceremonies were Board of Education President Rachelle Marcus, Vice President Tristen Walker-Shuman and board member Noah Margo, as well as BHUSD administration officials Michael Bregy, superintendent; Dustin Seemann, assistant superintendent of education services; Laura Chism, assistant superintendent of student services; Matt Horvath, assistant superintendent of personnel services; David Damico, executive director of technology services; Rebecca Starkins, director of public relations; and Tim Ellis, director of athletics.
Hawthorne Elementary Principal Sarah Kaber and Assistant Principal Kevin Painter spoke, along with several students and fifth-grade teachers.
Horace Mann Elementary Principal Craig Bugbee hosted the event alongside Assistant Principals Samantha Jung and Chris Regan. Many students and fifth-grade teachers spoke, including a moving tribute to fifth-grade student, Mason Duncan-Book, who tragically passed away in November.
