As we welcome the fall season of the 2018-19 school year, we continue to work hard to provide learning opportunities across our schools that encourage and challenge our students to reach new academic heights.
Our District is celebrating the tremendous success of our students for their performance on the California standardized tests. For three consecutive years, our students improved their test scores in English language arts and math and we are continuing to head in the right direction with gains in every area.
At the high school level, the Advanced Placement (AP) program recognized a number of our high-achieving scholars, with 148 Bonita High School students and 93 San Dimas High School students earning AP Scholar Awards.
These achievements would not be possible without the continual support of our Bonita Unified teachers, staff and administrators.
Across the District, we are eagerly preparing for the annual Great ShakeOut, a statewide initiative that encourages everyone to prepare for an earthquake. All of our students and staff will participate in the drill at 10:18 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18.
We look forward to the approaching holiday season and I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween.
