Greetings, Bonita Unified community,

I am thrilled to share with you that the second half of the school year is off to an excellent start, as our students and staff continue to exceed expectations in academics, arts, athletics and activities.

In fact, it is because of our amazing teachers, staff, faculty and administrators that Bonita Unified School District was honored as a 2019 recipient of the Top Workplace Award! Thank you for making our school District a great place for our community to work, learn and live their purpose.

Preparing students to live their purpose through rigorous instruction has earned Oak Mesa Elementary the prestigious designation of California Distinguished School. We are proud of our teachers, staff, administrators, parents and families, and students for being an exemplary and inspiring school.

Middle School science teachers at Lone Hill and Ramona Middle School are also inspiring and engaging students through Amplify Science; a state-of-the-art digital program that uses an interactive curriculum and hands-on activities to teach students to think critically and collaborate like scientists and engineers.
In addition to academics, arts and activities, our student athletes have also been hard at work. Congratulations to our San Dimas High School Cheer team, which earned the CIF Division 2A title for the second year in a row.
All of these achievements are possible only through the dedicated support of our Board of Education, parents, community partners, teachers, classified staff and administrators, who all make BUSD an incredible place to learn and work.
I look forward to continuing this new year alongside so many dedicated professionals, together in our purpose to prepare every student to live their purpose.
Carl J. Coles
