A lot of great things are happening at Bonner School this fall! Some of them are immediately noticeable, and others are behind the scenes. Most obvious, and very exciting for our students, is the hole in the ground where our new Cafeteria will be. What has been a concept on paper is now on the way to becoming a reality! Our students will enjoy keeping up with the project from the safety of our breezeway passage.
Behind the scenes, a lot of exciting learning is happening in our classrooms, and at Bonner School, the classroom includes a good dose of the Great Outdoors! Our students enjoy the excellent curriculum teachers have developed to use with the Bonner Learning Park and other resources in the area. Our hallways are already full of fine displays of student work and creativity.
The fall athletics schedule is winding up, as the football team, cross-country and volleyball teams have had excellent seasons. But there are several great after-school opportunities for your child to be involved in. We encourage them to join the Art Club, the Book Club, the Outdoor Club, Student Council, the Pokémon Club, or the Science Club. Boys basketball is getting under way as well. Research shows a strong connection between student involvement in after-school activities and achievement.
And speaking of achievement, Bonner kids are doing a fantastic job! We want to support their efforts in every way we can, and the best thing we can do is work with parents to ensure student success. Parents, please make sure you are taking advantage of our PASS system, where you can check your child’s grades online. Our counselor, Ms. Sproull, can help you access your account and provide some information on navigating that site.
We welcome you to stop in, see the construction progress, or touch base with your child’s teacher. And my door is always open if you have questions or concerns, so stop by for a cup of coffee, or feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com.
