BPS community celebrates winning the Broad Prize

Several hundred members of the BPS community -- including students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators and partners -- attended a "Winter Wonderland" at the Boston Convention Center to celebrate Boston winning the Broad Prize for Urban Education.

The event, sponsored by the Broad Foundation and hosted by Mayor Menino, the Boston School Committee and Superintendent Contompasis, paid tribute to the top city school district in the country. Guests brought contributions to Toys For Tots and enjoyed ice cream sundaes.
