On Friday, February 2, 2018, during homeroom, BMS staff and students gathered in the theater where they were introduced to Project Henry. Several family members and friends of former middle school library assistant Mrs. Beth Ann Typer were also in attendance. The first Project Henry Kindness Ambassador, Kara Reinagle, was introduced. Finally, students were excited to see Henry as he came on stage at the end of the presentation. Below is an explanation of Project Henry, a copy of the project explanation that was read to students, Project Henry shirt order forms, and pictures from the event. Thanks to everyone who helped get this initiative started and to all of those who have or will support this wonderful BMS project.
Project Henry is an initiative to promote an atmosphere of kindness and acceptance within our school
community. Project Henry is based out of our Middle School Library. It was created as a way to honor the
memory of Mrs. Beth Ann Typer, our former middle school library assistant, and her faithful service dog, Henry.
Mrs. Typer was one of the kindest people to ever grace our hallways. Kindness was truly her way of life.
She always put our students’ needs first and went out of her way to help others. The example she set is one
that we could all hope to follow and is most definitely worth teaching. Funds raised though Project Henry will
be used to provide students and/or classrooms with materials that support literacy and teach kindness.
