Dear Bonneville High School Community,
I would like to thank the B-Ville community for all their support this academic year. As we look back at our 13/14 school year we say good bye to an extraordinary bunch of seniors. To the parents of the class of 2014, I want to personally thank you for entrusting our staff to educate and guide your student while they attended Bonneville.
As we close out the year we also say goodbye to three special staff members who are retiring; Becky Olsen - Math teacher, Mitsie Oka - Math teacher and Denise Carlson – Technology teacher. I want to thank each of them for their dedication and wish them a long and fulfilling retirement. There are other staff members who have taken different assignments also including, Robert Riley who will be going to Fremont High as a Chemistry teacher, Stacy Nye who has taken a position as an English teacher at Davis High, Bryan Weir will be going to Morgan Middle School as a Math Teacher, and Tom Paskett will be at Fremont High as their Drafting teacher. We would like to thank each of them for their service to our school and community.
We would like to welcome the following new teachers to the Bonneville High School; Tiffany Sowder (Math), McCall Eldredge (Math), Todd Smith (Math), Kevin Waters (Drafting) and Andie Tanner, who will teacher Agricultural Science. Agricultural Science is new to Bonneville High and we are expecting a great program and outcome. Bonneville would love to see an FFA chapter soon!
As we prepare for the 2014-2015 school year, we want to remind you that regular attendance at school is vital to our students’ success. Loss of attendance credit jeopardizes learning, student grades, their ability to participate in school athletics and events, and most importantly, graduation. Please familiarize yourself with our attendance policies and procedures, as some minor changes have been made. There will be some new changes to the attendance credit make up options this fall as well. Please make sure you and your student take time to review this important information as it becomes available.
Also, Laker Time has been revised. Our new program is, REAL INCREASE GROWTH/GRADUATION RATE (RIGR) and is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RIGR process will take place in the classroom. All learners (especially struggling learners) are provided with interventions to help increase academic achievement. RIGR will provide all students an opportunity to get help and create an atmosphere where all students can benefit from a change in the academic culture and school climate. RIGR will enable students to make a strong personal connection with their teachers and put the responsibility for seeking remediation on the student. More information is coming.
Thank you again for a wonderful year and have a safe, cool, and enjoyable summer.
Make good choices; Hold yourself accountable; Strive for excellence.
