This is how Dual Language model for the 17-18 school year at Bonham Academy will be implemented. Middle School will continue Dual Language at a 50/50 rate in core courses. Two of the four core courses will be in Spanish – SLA and Social Studies. Art will also be a Spanish Elective. We are administering a short assessment to our 4-7th Graders to determine whether their Spanish is sufficient to the upcoming challenges.
BIENVENIDOS A LA ACADEMIA DE BONHAM
WELCOME TO BONHAM ACADEMY
Letter from the principal
August is Here, and Back to School is Near
Students worked on academics, Spanish fluency and having fun this summer during our first ACE summer program. Ms. Rodriguez is our ACE facilitator and Dr. Kennedy was the facilitator for the Spanish instruction section of the summer program. The ACE program is a state grant that allows our school to offer no cost after school care and summer academics.
Back to school signs have sprung up around the city. The first day of the 2017-2018 school year is August 14th. School begins at 7:55. Dismissal is at 3:20. New beginnings and sharp pencils will be ready to take on the challenges of this school year.
We will continue morning drop off and afternoon pickup on Cedar Street this year. Students may enter campus from the Cedar Street gate and proceed to the cafeteria or gym in the mornings. When parents notify their child’s teacher that they will be a car rider, the children will wait on campus for their name to be called on the radio and then walk to the Cedar Street loading area. This should ease traffic on St. Mary’s at dismissal time.
Every year, Bonham Academy’s students receive support from our local Kiwanis chapter, in the form of school supplies. The Kiwanians provide filled backpacks and other supplies for students who need a little assistance getting ready for back to school. In addition, throughout the school year, our Kiwanians act as reading mentors to our First graders.
Once each week, the members of the Kiwanis club come to Bonham to read to, and with students in the First Grade. At the end of the school year, they celebrate the success of the children in developing and honing their reading skills. This is but one more example of the importance of our community to Bonham Academy.
At Bonham, education is a community affair. From the opening of the Garden Street School over 125 years ago, which would become Bonham Elementary, this school at 925 S. St. Mary’s has been an integral part of the King William community. “Thank you” to our community which supports our school and our children. Let’s have a great school year filled with learning and adventure.
