Hello Bonneville Families!
It was wonderful to see so many of you at our Back-to-School Night! We have been working hard for your child's return on Monday and have fabulous things planned for this school year. In your child's back-to-school folder there is important information, including a note about how we will participate in the solar eclipse. This is a profound astronomical event! I have purchased safety glasses that meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standards for all of our students and staff who attend that day. All students will participate in classroom lessons about the eclipse and view a portion of the eclipse unless a parent returns the parent notice requesting that their child NOT participate. I’m confident our children will always remember the first day of school in 2017 as a safe, positive and exciting learning experience!
The first day of school is Monday, August 21.
As a school that is always trying to improve, we are implementing some procedural changes at the school and invite you to read about them here. Please note the school start-time change, information about the teacher/home visits, and the format for back-to-school night. We also invite you to view the Bonneville Parent & Family Handbook to answer common questions you might have.
Most importantly, we invite you to join us in our commitment to make 2017-18 the best school year yet for our students and families! We will do this by staying true to our vision and mission as educators.
Thank you for all you do, and we look forward to a fantastic year together!
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!
