Current and former Educators from the Bogota Public School  District met with some Alumni and enrolled Student of Bogota Schools.

One example of the family feel of  Bogota was retired teacher Ms. Pat Burns attended this event with her Daughter, Steen Teacher, Cornelia Geraghty and grandson Quinn Geraghty who is a Volunteer Coach for the Bogota Cross Country teams.
   Attendees had a chance to view history class photos  and photos of past teachers.  There was time talk to old classmates, catch up on what the former Teachers, and find about about life beyond the classroom. Near the end of the event April Klemm introduced Miss Allen who led the room in a sing a long with some of  her "Bogota Songs".
