Greetings and Bienvenido!
This school year brings with it many exciting beginnings. As the newly appointed Principal I am looking forward to collaborating with the teachers, families, and students to create a school year filled with learning and opportunities for growth.
The theme for this year is "Bonneville in Bloom" because I believe every student is blossoming into his/her greatest potential each day. As educators in the building, we are supporting this potential with social emotional learning skills, celebrating the dual languages represented in the school, and updated school expectations.
At Bonneville, we believe connection, clarity, collaboration, and culture to be the cornerstones of success. We plan to implement these in the following ways.
We will foster opportunities for authentic connections to build strong relationships among faculty, students, parents, and community members. We recognize that relationships are the cornerstone for success in all areas and that we function best when the whole person is nurtured, celebrated, and encouraged to grow.
We will promote clarity in expectations through transparent communication, using data to make informed decisions, and providing relevant professional learning opportunities. We recognize that empowered decision-making is key in sustaining this plan.
We will promote collaboration by using the shared leadership model. We recognize that all voices matter and will approach all learning, teaching, and decision making in a way that represents the diversity and highest interests of the school.
We will promote cultural diversity by providing an environment that celebrates diversity, fosters an inclusive community, and encourages creativity. We recognize that our school tells a story of language and we embrace the heritage of Bonneville Elementary.
Whenever I interact with a student I share that my job is make sure students are learning and safe. To help me with this important mission, I have updated the school expectations. Each student is expected to:
I feel fortunate to be leading this amazing team of teachers ans students. This is going to be a wonderful year of growth and learning for our Bonneville Scholars!
Bonneville Elementary, built in 1964, has been an important fixture at the center of our community for many years. We strive to provide the best possible educational experience for our students and families. Bonneville is a Spanish Dual Language Immersion magnet program, and provides exceptional instruction to neighborhood students.
The Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Program is designed to build academic and language fluency in both English and Spanish. All students with varying abilities and backgrounds have the opportunity to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in two languages. Dual language immersion offers a rich bilingual experience for young learners when their minds are developmentally best able to acquire a second language.
Our regular education program is rich with high quality curriculum and specially designed learning experiences for all of our scholars. Teachers and staff stay “student focused” as they plan, make decisions, and interact with one another and our students.
We invite you to partner with us as we make 2017-18 the best year ever!
