Bond Elementary School Community,
Welcome parents and students to a new school year and great expectations for success. There is a lot that is new regarding Bond Elementary School this year. We have a new principal (Mr. Patrick Wright), a new assistant principal (Mrs. Terri Martin), a new guidance counselor (Mrs. Wilson-Montgomery), and a host of new teachers and support staff, who, along with returning teachers and staff, are all ready to greet your child tomorrow, Monday, August 14th, the first day of school.
It is important to note that classroom instruction begins every morning at 8:15. All Bond students receive breakfast and lunch free of charge. The cafeteria will serve breakfast between 7:30 am and 8 am. Please insure that your child arrives early enough to receive breakfast without running into instructional time.
We have a strong belief that “WE CAN DO ALL THINGS” this year. This requires our parents to be strong and consistent participants in the education of their student. Help the staff at Bond by ensuring students are reading at home, and that you are taking the time to listen to them read. Ask your child questions about what is being learned in school. By recalling the information, it helps students to retain the information, and helps us get that much closer to all of our students proficiently reading and attaining academic goals.
Finally, if you have questions, stop by or contact the school or teacher. The only way to achieve the success we know is possible is by all of us working together to make it happen. To this end, please consider joining our School Advisory Council (SAC) and/or Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Just let a member of our office staff know about your interest. Remember, it will take a great effort on the part of all stakeholders to make a difference. The hard work put in by our teachers thus far leads to our great expectations for this new school year. We truly believe that together “WE CAN DO ALL THINGS”.
“We stopped by the annual Science teachers meeting and spoke to a few teachers about how their class will be participating in the Great American Solar Eclipse. Many of our schools will have lesson plans focused on this event, here are three examples…” August 16, 2017
If you didn’t know, Tallahassee is home to a famous weather expert who is very excited about the Eclipse. During our interview with him, we learned some great facts about the event this Monday. Plus, he is sharing a live stream from his massive telescope to anyone who wants to watch. See the Squirrel? Press his nose to play the video.
