Bonita Vista Middle School

Another year has ended and a new page will be turned for those who may be promoting from middle school, as well as those who may be continuing on as a Crusader. Looking back, feel the emotions that are captured with each memory. Feel the victories and smiles that you shared with your friends. Reflect on the year that is now behind you. Are you the person you envisioned yourself to be when you started the year? If you answered no, we encourage you to try new things! Learn, achieve, and always shoot for the stars. Proceed to be who you want to be.

Words from our Principal

Congratulations Class of 2020!

I know this wasn't the way you expected your last semester of 8th grade to end, but we are very proud of you and the success you have achieved and I am confident you will do great things in high school.

You have made this a great two years for me as your principal. You are the first class of students I have seen go all the way through BVM. I had so much fun spending my days with you and I wish you every success in your future!

Please review the important information below regarding end-of-the-year activities. We want to make sure we celebrate your accomplishments in style and following all health and safety procedures.

Go out there and change the world, Crusaders! Represent BVM with pride!

7th grade students, I can't wait to welcome you back next year. I will keep you posted on what our re-opening will look like. Have a great summer!

This is the last week to retrieve items from your PE lockers. Please contact your assistant principal for an appointment to collect your belongings. You must have an appointment for this so we can make sure your items are ready.

Staff Appreciation

We had a chance to say thank you and farewell to our BVM staff today. Many of them will be returning next year, but some will not. It was a bittersweet end to the year. Thank you to the incredible staff at BVM for everything you do for our students. I am proud to be a part of this team!
