There is such a sense of anticipation and excitement in the days surrounding the start of a new school year! That has certainly been true in recent days as the 2016-17 year has gotten under way here at Bonner School. I hope your children have brought home some of that enthusiasm with conversations about new friends, their new teachers, and the exciting things they will be learning in the coming year!
We are all enjoying the new cafeteria space! It is truly a concrete example of the deep commitment the people of this community have toward the students of Bonner School, made possible with the passage of the construction bond last year. That completed project provides a spacious and welcoming area for students’ mealtime. And the versatility of the addition was evident last week when our staff enjoyed the air-conditioned space for our teacher inservice trainings. We are confident that it will also serve our community for a multitude of community events and celebrations.
And while we like to show off Bonner School’s fine facility and new cafeteria, what I’m most proud of here is the excellent team of educators and support staff who make this school what it is. Parents, your children are blessed to have such dedicated and kind people serving as teachers, bus drivers, aides, cooks, and support staff. They are all committed to providing Bonner students with the very best educational opportunity.
Our upcoming Open House is a great opportunity for you to come visit our school, meet our staff, and see the completed cafeteria project. That event will be Thursday, September 15th, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We hope to see you then.
Until then, don’t hesitate to stop by our school and introduce yourself again to me or to our new principal, Mrs. Shelley Andres. We’d love to answer any questions or address any concerns you might have.
It’s going to be a great year at Bonner School!
