How You Can Get Involved In
Bay Park's School Committees

I always wondered why somebody didn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

Would you like to become more involved at Bay Park Elementary? Would you like to volunteer in your child's classroom, share your expertise, work on a committee or the School Site Council or perhaps work in the school gardens? We have several opportunities for you to be an active participant in your child's education here at Bay Park Elementary School.

Someone asked the anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978), "What is the first sign you look for, to tell you of an ancient civilization?" The interviewer had in mind a tool or article of clothing. Ms. Mead surprised him by answering, a "healed femur". When someone breaks a femur, they can't survive to hunt, fish or escape enemies unless they have help from someone else. Thus, a healed femur indicates that someone else helped that person, rather than abandoning them and saving themselves. Isn't that what we in philanthropy are all about? Healing femurs of one sort or another?
