Weekly Update Jan. 6, 2018

posted Jan 7, 2019, 4:12 AM by Lee Newman

Dear Bon Air Families,

We were so excited to welcome our Eagles back to school on Wednesday!  Please click here to see a video with some exciting highlights from this past week.

Winter Family STEAM and Inclusive Schools Event:  We hope all of our families can join us on Wednesday, January 16th from 6:00-7:00 PM for a fun family event at Bon Air Elementary School. Each grade level team has fun STEAM activities planned for students and families to complete together.  Our Special Education team will have Disability Awareness training activities for families to engage in as well as information to share with our parents. Our ESOL teachers will have computer stations set up for families to learn more about new speaker experiences.  Our resource team will have Minute to Win it activities for our families. It will be a fun and informative night, and we hope to see you there!


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
