Egg Drop Success

Some of our students utilized our Makerspace learning area and took on the challenge of designing something that would protect an egg that is thrown off of the roof. Here is a video to check out their work...

Lids

Our students at Bon Air are partnering with Kiwanis to collect plastic caps and lids...YOU CAN HELP! Please send in any plastic lids (drink, milk, medicines, toiletries, detergents) you have and we will add them to our collection. We hope to make a bench out of our recycled lids.

Our staff caught being SILLY!

Attendance

Attendance is vital to student learning! It is important for your child to be here on time, every day. We understand students are sick and have appointments at times. Please do your best to make appointments after school when possible. We are also concerned with student tardiness. In order to help increase student learning time, we have a new tardy policy. If a student is tardy 4 times, there will be a parent conference. If a student is tardy 5 times, he or she will serve detention. We appreciate your help in getting your children here ON time EVERY day! Thank you!
