A portrait of Carl Coles
Dear Bonita Unified Community,

As the start of the new school year quickly approaches, I want to thank our staff and students for all their behind-the-scenes work over the summer break to prepare for an outstanding 2019-20 school year.
Thanks to our dedicated staff and a shared vision for academic excellence, Bonita Unified school libraries were open throughout the summer for students to check out books and use educational software.
Across the district, sports teams met during summer vacation for practice and in conditioning in preparation for their upcoming seasons. We wish them success!
Our school facilities are a source of pride for the communities of La Verne and San Dimas. Over the summer, empty classrooms provided the opportunity for maintenance projects at some of our sites. Crews put the finishing touches on the upgrades to Bonita’s Glenn Davis Stadium, marking the completion of the projects supported by our bond measures.
Please join me in welcoming new staff members into our Bonita Unified family, including eight mental health professionals who will support the social and emotional support needs of every student.
The first day of school for students is August 19, and the schedule of our back-to-school nights is provided below.

Enjoy the remainder of summer vacation!
Carl J. Coles
