Dear Bonneville Families:
Another wonderful school year has come and gone. Our theme this year was, “Pulling Together!” The students and teachers took hold of this theme and made great efforts to help Bonneville Elementary pull to a new level of success. Students earned “road to Success” reading parties and a Channel 5 assembly with Nadine Wimmer for their exceptional reading minutes with Americorp’s STARS reading program. The students also made great growth with Bonneville’s FLEX program. The FLEX program helped the confidence of every child in the building to grow because of the extra support that was given in a timely manner.
It is also notable that students at Bonneville have improved in every area of the curriculum with the end of level state testing. The area of math was most impressive with 80.5% attaining successful growth. Congratulations go out to students, parents, and the Bonneville teaching staff for this terrific accomplishment.
Now for a couple items that you may be wondering about as we close out this school year.
First of all, on the last day of school, May 30th, we will send promotion slips and report cards home with your student. If your student cannot attend school the last day, all materials will be saved and available for pickup at the school during the summer months. The school office will be open on Mondays from 10:00am until 12:00pm.
Finally, this year we have several Bonneville Elementary educators leaving. You need to know that Mr. Paul Porter has decided to retire from teaching after 30 years at Bonneville. Mrs. Mandi Taylor is going to North Carolina with her husband for medical school. Mrs. Heather Crisp will be leaving the computer specialty position at Bonneville to teach second grade at another school. Mrs. Cayce Thill, Mrs. Keri Beirdnea, and Mrs. Kim Court all have plans to stay home and be with their families. Mrs. James is pursuing other teaching interests and Mrs. Charlene Farnworth has decided to take a sabbatical to finish her doctorate program at B.Y.U. and will be back in a year.
It is never easy to say goodbye to great teachers. They have all contributed to the success of Bonneville Elementary and they will all be missed.
Thank you for helping make this a successful year at Bonneville. Have a great summer and we will see everyone in the fall.
