Superintendent’s Message

As we just finished celebrating a time for giving thanks to those who support our students and our community, we are quickly moving forward to the holiday season and to the end of 2017. It is important not to get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season that we miss the opportunity to celebrate.

Remember the adage, “It is better to give than to receive.” As a child we may not have understood this meaning, however as adults, the importance of this statement is greatly realized. In Bonita Unified, students, staff, and community members are excellent examples of those who give many times over without the thought of receiving. Our schools’ ASBs and PTAs are hosting food and toy drives to help provide to those who may need an extra boost during this season. Opportunities for outreach are within the District and community.  Children can write letters, postcards, or draw pictures to send to the men and women who are away from home serving in the military. Send notes of encouragement to a child who is sick in a hospital, donate food to a local food bank, or take time to visit a senior center to share some holiday cheer. These are all excellent moments that can be shared while at the same time, teach the importance of giving and begin a new family holiday tradition.

Bonita Unified students are busy practicing their holiday performances to showcase to parents and our community that will be sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Please plan to attend one of the many performances held at our beautiful Bonita Center for the Arts or your child’s school.

I wish each of you a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season and an exciting New Year!

Sincerely,

 

Christina (Christy) Goennier, Ed.D.
