We are excited to announce the return of our online days of support for Bosque School—Founder’s Days 2022. This year, we are kicking off the celebration on March 31, 2022, at 6 pm, and culminating with our Spring Into Fall Fiesta on April 1, from 6–9 pm, in Sanchez Park.

Over 27 hours, we will recognize our past 27 years of Bosque School, celebrate our present, and help raise support for our students, programs, staffulty, and mission through the Bosque Fund. These days are all about participation: every gift matters and, when combined with the gifts of others, has a significant effect on our school.

Mary Kay Pera, longtime Bosque School friend and supporter, in honor of her husband and former trustee Rod J. Pera, has agreed to kick off this year’s festivities by matching the first $10,000 in gifts. By making your contribution early in this campaign, you will be able to double your impact thanks to the generosity of this leadership gift.

To celebrate our community banding together in support, we will be releasing fun videos featuring our Bosque Challenge series each time we reach another donor milestone. At the end of the event, if we hit our ultimate donor goal, our Head of School Dr. Jessie Barrie, will find herself in a sticky situation. 


What an incredible two days! Thank you all for celebrating 27 years of Bosque School with us during this year’s Founder’s Days event. We raised $45,433 from 215 donors!

We had so much fun closing our giving days together at Spring Into Fall Fiesta—thank you to everyone who joined us. We are incredibly grateful for all of you and the contributions you have made to our school.

We have officially had 200 donors make a Founder's Days contribution! Given that Spring Into Fall Fiesta is in full swing, we wanted to share a few of our favorite Fall Fiesta photos from over the years. Can you spot any familiar faces?

With about 30 minutes left until Founder’s Days ends, help us reach our ultimate goal of 270 donors! If we do, you’ll get to enjoy a very memorable video of our head of school in a sticky situation. You won’t want to miss it.

Wow, 100 donors have made a Founder’s Days gift so far! To celebrate this milestone, let’s take a look back at our first official Fall Fiesta circa 2010. 

You won’t want to miss the next video we have in store. We can’t wait to share it with you when we reach 150 donors!

In honor of reaching 50 donors, we have our first video to share with you! Please enjoy our very own Bosque School game show with contestants and a host who may look a little familiar…
