As we do our best to keep in step with the times and technological advances, Bonner's newsletter, the "Pawprint" has been replaced with a combination of "Bonner News and Updates", our Facebook page, and Twitter. This news feed will be your primary place to check for up-to-date information. Please check back often for additions. Please also check our Bonner Calendar, located on the right side of our webpage, and our Extracurricular Opportunities webpage, listed on the left side of our webpage, for information.
Opportunities to Donate:________________________________________________________________________________________
All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend our meetings. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 22, 7 PM, in the Bonner Library (there is no meeting in December).
Please remember to send the "fab five" (coat, hat, warm mittens/gloves, snow pants, boots) with your child as we enter this season of chilly weather. These are all required when snow is on the ground and/or when temperatures warrant. Students are outside before school starts and during recess whenever the windchill is not below zero. Please also remember to send your child's shoes. An extra pair of socks and lip balm are helpful to have in their locker or backpack, as well.
A Skylert message will be sent to all families if school will be closed, has a late start, or closes early due to inclement weather. These events may also be found on KTTC's "Closings and Delays" list.
