Words From Our Principal
We started this semester with great excitement and rigor. We had three awards luncheons where we recognized students with Perfect Attendance, Straight A’s, Rising Stars, and our students who participated in fall sports. It’s was great to see so many students being recognized for their efforts and achievements. The strong collaboration of parents, our amazing staff, and students truly helps making our school so successful. I am sure this will be a great semester!! Go Crusaders!!!
Eduardo Reyes, Ed.D.

Staff of the Month
EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
Hello Bonita Vista Middle families, I hope the New Year has found you well. I wanted to post a reminder for everyone to keep your family and emergency contact numbers updated. I often find that when I need to contact a parent for a health-related concern, the contact and emergency numbers are no longer valid. It is very important to have current and accurate contact information in case of a student illness or emergency. Be sure that those persons authorized to pick up your child have the “pick up” student icon by their name. Please take a moment to review and update your emergency contact information online or call the school office to make any necessary changes. You can come by the school in person to update your contacts as well. Also, please remember to keep the nurse updated on any health concerns or changes throughout the school year.

Notability has a great way to let you organize your notes using dividers and subjects.
One way to stay organized is to create a divider for each class and subjects for each unit of study in a particular class. Setting this up is really easy and a great way not to "lose" something in your digital notebook.
1. Tap the "+" at the top on the left.
2. Select "Divider". Name the divider after your class (for example : Science)
3. Tap the "+" again at the top left
4. This time select "Subject". Name the subject after the unit for that class (for example: Unit 5 Energy)
5. To move the Dividers or Subjects, tap "Edit" at the top left. Tap and hold the three lines to move them around.
6. To move notes into various folders, tap and hold a note to move it into a subject folder.
Staying organized makes it easier to be successful in school. If you need help, come the the Genius Bar during advisory. Ask your advisory teacher for a pass.
