I was one of the Bunker parents who had an opportunity to see the helicopter land. I never thought a helicopter would land in our school. It was exciting to see that. It was especially great to see the students faces light up when they saw the helicopter and learn about it. Perfect day to start a morning at Bunker! Thank you to our Principal, Michele Brynjulson to arrange all this!

Thanks for sharing, Leonora! It was fun watching the kids run toward the chopper on KTVU 2's report last night!
