Words From Our Principal
Dear Parents and Students,
In a few days we will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day. This is a great opportunity to reflect on all the wonderful things we have and to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. They have all been working very hard this semester in and out of school with academics, sports, and other activities. I also want to acknowledge our great staff for making a difference in our students’ lives on a daily basis. I wish all of you and your families a great Thanksgiving and a well-deserved break.
Eduardo Reyes, Ed.D.

Dia de los Muertos Festival
The Dia de los Muertos took place on Friday Oct. 28th, here at Bonita Vista Middle School. The purpose of the festival was to have a fun filled night with our community. Students from the dual language immersion program explained the history behind Dia de los Muertos and the significance of the Ofrendas (altars). Many students entered our Ofrenda competition and costume competition. The winners went home with gift cards and pumpkin pie. Thank you to the BVM Band and Mariachi for performing, the support of the Dual Language Immersion, AVID and Robotics students and teachers, and for our amazing dual language immersion parents. The festival was a great success!

Staff of the Month
I would like to wish all of the families of Bonita Vista Middle School a very Happy Thanksgiving. This is a wonderful time to relax and spend with family and friends before the busy December holidays begin.
November is also Diabetes awareness month. Talk to your health care provider about the risk factors within your family history, take precautions, and help support those persons you know with Diabetes.
Enjoy your break,
