How can I keep up with what's going on with my child in class?
Each week, every teacher sends out a newsletter to keep parents up to date on everything that is happening in their classroom . The school office publishes a monthly newsletter to keep parents up to date on school wide news and events.
Parents are encouraged to “like” our Facebook page to see photos and announcements that are posted. Our website is another great resource to see the school calendar, check on enrichment classes or make payments.
How can parents help throughout the year?
Parent volunteers are an integral part of our school. We love to have our parents involved and believe it helps to strengthen our home-school connection. From being a room parent, to mystery reader, to serving on our playground committee, we can find a way for you to help that fits your time and talents.
Do we have to attend Bon Air United Methodist Church to enroll?
No, we welcome all families to The Bon View School.
How do we register?
As your first step to enrollment, we recommend that parents set up a time to visit our school. This gives parents a chance to visit our classrooms, meet our teachers and see our program in action. At that time, parents will be given the Application for Admission.
Parents can also print the Application for Admission from our website and submit it to the school office, along with the $25.00 application fee.
What's the youngest age to enroll?
Children must be 2 years old by September 1st of the current school year to be eligible for enrollment.
