Weekly Update December 30, 2018

posted Jan 1, 2019, 9:59 AM by Lee Newman

Dear Bon Air Families,

We hope all of our families are enjoying their winter break!  We had a lot of fun at school celebrating holidays from around the world and other fun activities before break.  To see highlights from our fun week, please click here. We can’t wait to see our Bon Air Eagles back at school on Wednesday!

As 2018 comes to an end, I want to thank all of our families for making the first part of the school year so fantastic!  BAES has the best teachers, families, and students, and it is so wonderful to see everyone work together to make our school such a special place to be.  


Coordinator of Special Education Update:  Amy Lawson, our Coordinator of Special Education, has accepted a promotion within the county.  We wish her well in her new position, and we will certainly miss her at BAES. Until a new Coordinator of Special Education begins, please contact our Assistant Principal, Dr. Klyce, with any meeting requests or questions that would be handled by the CSE.  =


We have REALLY amazing student leaders at Bon Air Elementary!  Below is some information from some of the fantastic projects they are leading.  


Change the World

The Student Lighthouse Team is collecting spare change--coins or bills--to send a donation to Burgaw Elementary School in Pender County, North Carolina to help replace classroom materials and books after the devastation of Hurricane Florence. We want to use our change to change the world! We will collect money for the project December 10, 2018--February 1, 2019.  Student can just bring the money to their homerooms and the Student Lighthouse Team will take care of the rest.


Dear parents, our school is donating soda bottle tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. Please remind your kids to bring them in. Thank you, Danny Arel and River Klammer
