Ann Bolger

Ann Bolger (1939-2001) was, for 27 years, the Parent Coordinator at the Graham and Parks Alternative Public School. The parent liaison positions that are now a universal feature of Cambridge schools are based on the job she created, and her work is nationally recognized as a model for family involvement in schools. She did much to make Graham & Parks what it is. Our library was named in her honor because she was a tireless promoter of reading, when children are presented with so many other ways to spend their time. She was the force behind an innovative book bag program, in which each child from grades K-2 was sent home with a different canvas bag of paperback books every other week throughout the year.
