Support Our School

Students visit the climber room several times
each day where they climb, slide, create their
own plays, and dance.  Each fall, the climber
room is transformed into a grocery store
where students can both stock and shop
for their favorite foods.

Bethesda students act out a scene from
"Caps for Sale" in the Climber Room.

In June 2009, our dear friend and mentor, Mary Ann Bonenberger, retired as director of Bethesda Nursery School after 30 years of devotion to children and dedication to our school.  In celebration of her career—and her creation of the school that we are today—a special fund has been established in her honor at the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to support financial aid to Bethesda students.  To contribute to the Mary Ann Bonenberger Fund, please click here to visit the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven’s website or call them directly at (203) 777-2386.
