Dear Parents and the Bonneville Community,
I want to give a hearty “B-ville” shout out to our senior students who are preparing for graduation. I am proud of you, but I need you to make sure you are really ready for graduation. Do you have issues such as attendance credit or academic credit loss? If you have concerns about either of these areas, please contact either your administrator or counselor.
Our school year is moving along quickly and as I take time to catch a breath, I am grateful for the opportunity to work with a wonderful staff of educators and to see the talents of great students. Bonneville High School is a tremendous place to work and learn.
In addressing the challenges of school safety, I need to remind all students they are required to wear their current ID badge above the waist during school hours. For the safety of the students and staff at Bonneville High School, all visitors are required to report to the main office. This includes, but is not limited to: parents, PTSA members, community council members, vendors, and anyone who has business with Bonneville High School personnel.
To further build a culture of excellence and improve the graduation rate, I want to encourage our students to take rigorous classes, including Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses next year. Research has shown students who take at least one AP course during high school are better prepared for college. In addition to more rigorous classes, I would also like our students to commit themselves to improve their attendance. Being on-time and attending everyday is important for student success.
Parents, please, if you have senior students, now is the time to ensure they are on track for graduation. Please don’t take for granted that students have things under control. Parents and students must be aware of each student’s status with regard to meeting BHS’s graduation requirements. These requirements include 27 academic credits and no more than .75 attendance credit loss. If you have any concerns about your child’s academic credit please contact his/her counselor at 801-452-4059. For attendance credit make-up options please contact our attendance secretary at 801-452-4061. Please call the school if you have any questions. We do not want anyone to miss out on graduation from Bonneville High School.
I am proud of our winter sports teams! Our girls’ basketball team won the Region 5 title with an impressive 21-0 record. Good luck at state!
Thank you for your support and for letting us work with your students.
