Dear Bonneville Community,
Happy holiday season! Fall is my favorite time of the year. It signals the start of the skiing and snowboarding season, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is also a time when we can enjoy our family and friends and recall the many things for which we are so thankful. Fall also brought us to the end of a great sports season. Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in a fall sport.
I want to express my sincere thanks to the students of Bonneville High School, for making the first quarter of our school year great! They come to school each day and work hard. My admin staff and I enjoy greeting our students every day, spending time in classrooms, and talking with students during lunches. Our hope is that students will focus on learning so they can keep their grades up and stay on track. We want our students to attend each and every class and to get there promptly. These good habits will carry into their life after high school.
I am also thankful for our faculty and staff. As an administrator, I am fortunate to work with great educators. Our teachers bring their “A”-game every day, and they provide and create an excellent learning environment for students.
Veterans Day was November 11th, and on-behalf of my staff and I, we want to thank the men and women of our Armed Forces who serve our country. Because of their service, we can prepare and teach our students about honor, sacrifice and freedom. We are extremely thankful for our Veterans and their service.
As we approach mid-term of the 2nd Quarter, now would be a great time for parents to take a few minutes to evaluate their student’s academic progress. It is imperative that parents sit down with their student to make sure they are on line with both academic credit and attendance credit. Please call the counseling department at 801-452-4064 for more specifics concerning credit and remediation opportunities.
Also, our school wide Christmas fund raiser “Shop with a Cop,” kicks off in November, which helps all of us learn about the joys of service and making someone’s Christmas more worthwhile. We appreciate all of the support we receive for this fundraiser.
In closing, I want to express my thanks; I love and appreciate the support and the opportunity to work with the students at Bonneville High. They truly are hard workers. Thank you and have a happy holiday.
