We would like to say thank you for all of your help and generous donations to our “Shop with a Heroes Program” Christmas fundraising project. Many children were able to enjoy a brighter holiday, because of the efforts of everyone involved! January was another busy month here at the school. Please check the school calendar for all activities.
It is time again to review our school Trust Lands Plan and to formulate and refocus our plan for the coming year. For the upcoming year, we will continue our focus on literacy, mathematics, science, and technology. We will also focus on adding additional wireless hot spots, to make it easier for students to use mobile devices throughout the building. We will also look at any additional areas the committee feels are needed, along with providing resources to implement the Common Core State Standards. If you have any questions or suggestions; please get in touch with a committee member.
Parents if you have a senior student, now is the time to really focus to ensure that they are on track for graduation. Please don’t take for granted that they may have things under control. It is imperative that you and your student understand where they are with regard to meeting the graduation requirements of Bonneville High School and Weber School District. These requirements include 27 academic credits and no more than .75 attendance credit loss. If you have any concerns about your child’s academic or attendance credit, please contact your student’s counselor. Ms. Melissa Miller coordinates all of the attendance credit makeup, and you can contact her directly to inquire about makeup options. Please call the school if you have any questions. We do not want anyone to miss out on graduation.
All of our winter sports teams are in full swing. We want to wish them continued success and good luck. We also want to wish our cheerleaders the best of luck in their competitions and congratulate our drill team, Lakettes, on their wonderful season. Both of these groups work hard to perfect their sport.
Our final Parent Teachers Conference will be on February 19th, from 1:00 -6:00 p.m. Please come to check on your student’s progress. All juniors will take the ACT Test on March 4, 2014 at Bonneville High School. This is a state-wide test for juniors. We want our juniors to report to school and be ready to test at 7:30 a.m. on March 4th. We want this to be a successful opportunity for our students. Parents, I really appreciate the opportunity that you have entrusted with the staff of Bonneville High School to educate your students. We have some of the finest teachers in the district who care about your students!
Again, we would like to welcome you back, and as usual, we thank you for letting us work with your kids!
