Bonner wins ‘Cool School Award’

  • Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Octavia Mitchell visited Bonner Elementary School on May 5 to present the News 2 Cool School Award.

This award highlights the positive and successful initiatives that are implemented at Bonner. The Art Integration Initiative was a focal point of the visit.

Principal Natalie Lockliear accepted the award on behalf of staff and students. “This is an honor especially because we were nominated by parents,” she said.

Spring Showcase

The Bonner Elementary Showcase at Timberland High School is set for May 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The Academy of Arts at Bonner has been hard at work putting together a spectacular showcase featuring groups such as Toe the Line, dancers who have worked together to come up with fantastic line dances, artistic foxes who have worked together to create wonderful backdrops that will make you feel like you are truly in wonderland, as well as wonderful shadow puppets to add to the excitement of the showcase.

The showcase will also include foxy chefs who have been hard at work in their kitchens making special treats for the guests.

Come and enjoy these treats as well as other surprises.


The community sends heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family of Victoria (Vicky) Thomas Litchfield, who passed away on Tuesday, April 29. She will be deeply missed by many friends and family.
