Vivian Banks Charter School celebrated Native American Day on Friday, September 28th.  As part of this celebration, we hosted a community Lunch on the Lawn.  Students hosted a Native American Art Show and shared Cupeno Songs with families.  It was an outstanding event as the entire community came together to celebrate the Native American culture.       
Dear BUSD Parents,
This is a reminder before voting day that the Bonsall Unified School District placed a bond measure on the November 6th ballot.  In order for the bond to pass, 55% or more of voters must vote in favor of the measure.  There are three purposes for our bond:
1. Build phase 1 of the new Bonsall High School.
2. Improve safety and security at each of the five schools.
3. Build a new track at Bonsall West School, and renovate the track and fields each of the other four Bonsall schools.
I recently completed several community meetings in order to communicate important facts related to our school district, and facts related to the bond measure.  My staff and I have utilized a variety of communication methods (live videos “Super Live”, letters mailed to local residents, Bonsall Bridge monthly newsletter, social media, and in person community meetings) over the course of several months in an effort to ensure our parents, staff, and the broader Bonsall community have received accurate information about the current reality and needs of Bonsall Unified School District.  I would like to extend my appreciation to our community.  You have taken the time to listen, discuss, understand, and share what is in the best interest of the children we educate and the families we serve every day. 
Please remember that voting day is November 6th. 
A special thank you to our teachers for their hard work and preparation for parent conferences.  The feedback teachers provide at this point in the school year is very important as it prepares you and your child with the next steps necessary to improve each student’s learning at the highest level possible and to the best of his/her ability.   Thank you for your involvement in your child’s education and your support of the Bonsall teaching staff.

This past month has been a busy one at Bonsall West Elementary! Our 6th graders ran for ASB offices and delivered eloquent speeches.  We held a 9-11 ceremony to thank our first responders serving in fire/police departments and the military.  We also held our first book fair of the year and enjoyed lunch on the lawn. Updates will be coming soon about our jog-a-thon and PTA membership drive! 
Bonsall Elementary School Staff recently wrote a new school song! The song goes along with the rhythm of "I Got This Feeling" from the Trolls movie!  It will be sung at our all student assemblies!
"I’ve got this spirit inside my heart
It grows inside me when I put my backpack on
All through the school, all through the halls
We’ve got school spirit even though we may be small
I’ve got that caring friend beside me
Got respect for everybody
I’ll be fair to all around me and won’t stop (woooh)
I’m a small piece of a many and take pride in my community
Bonsall Bears you know we got it, we’re on top!"
Sullivan Middle School athletics are in full swing.  Girls Volleyball, Boys Flag Football, and Cross Country are all having outstanding seasons.  Our student-athletes continue to set the standard for the league in performance, academics, and character. 
Bonsall High School held its first ever Senior Information Night earlier this month. The event was very well attended. Parents and students learned about post-high school educational pathways including 4-year universities, community colleges, vocational programs, and military service. The presentation covered the college application process, the FAFSA and the California Dream Act. Parents felt it was very informative and that the event helped take some of the mystery out of the college application process and post-secondary options. BHS staff will be holding a FAFSA workshop on Saturday, November 10th.
