Admiral's Letter - September 2017


It is so nice to have the students back in the building. The energy they bring, their ideas, thoughts and
laughs radiate through the building. We have had a great start to our 2017-18 school year. We have so
many events going on this month, please review the calendar on our website
I want to highlight some important dates for you. Jostens will be at Bonneville September 6 th to talk
with our junior and senior classes during their Anchor Time period. September 7 th will kick off our post-
high day for our senior students. Homecoming week will be September 11-15. We have made a few
calendar changes to homecoming, we will be announcing the changes to our students starting next
week. September 26 th is our community night at Bonneville and our first Parent Teacher Conference day
will be September 27 th . The last big date of the month will be our final picture retake day which will be
September 29 th . Please remind your student that this retake day is our last retakes of the year.

Besides all of the events going on, we have some great initiatives taking place inside the school. Our
new Anchor Time is up and running. We are two weeks into the program and we are seeing some very
positive things. Anchor Times has been established for students to be able to pick up a pass from their
teachers to make up assignments or tests, get extra help on a concept or check for understanding. Our
teachers are doing a fabulous job of increasing opportunities for students to be successful. We can use
your help in this endeavor. Please talk with your student about coming to school and when at school to
be on time. Have your student take advantage of our Anchor Time period. Your help is the best help we
can receive to having all students at Bonneville be successful.

Parents I want to thank all of those that are participating with our PTSA and our community council.
These two groups provide a valuable service for our students and for all stakeholders. We want to
support our PTSA and the reflections contest, this is a great way for our students to showcase their
talents. At this time I want to thank our custodial staff. They have done a fantastic job with our
grounds. The football field and all of our fields look great. We are excited for the improvements that
have taken place in and outside of the building. We are currently working on building new dugouts for
our softball team. The plans have been approved and the process is moving forward. Thanks to all
those who have donated to this cause and if you would like to donate please contact us at 801-452-
4050. I’m so excited with our start to the school year, I can’t express my gratitude enough for the wide
felt support we have felt from the community.

September is upon us, what a busy month for all of our stakeholders here at Bonneville. One last date
for you. We will be having a safety drill (fire drill) Tuesday, September 5 th . You may hear sirens and
horns and you might see fire trucks at our school. This will be our first safety drill of the year. We want
to make sure all of our safety procedures are in place for our students.

A short video concerning our bond proposal has been posted to our website. Please take a moment to
view the video. The bond is an important issue to all district stakeholders. I hope we all have a great
month. Please enjoy your Labor Day break, if you are traveling, travel safe. See you all out to our parent
teacher conference night, if not sooner at one of our many activities. We are off and running here at
Bonneville High School.
