Hi Panther Parents!
I am extremely proud to let you know that BLHS has had a fantastic start! The staff is focused on creating positive relationships, rigorous coursework, and supporting students as they learn. We are celebrating students stretching themselves academically, making mistakes, learning from them, and growing. We are celebrating students authentically caring about one another and showing that on a daily basis. We are celebrating every opportunity we have to connect with parents and the community as well. Bonney Lake High School is a fantastic place to be!
At our open house on September 22 we had approximately 400 parents who came in to meet teachers, walk through their student’s schedule, and learn about BLHS. This was a fantastic event. We have our Fall Conferences scheduled for October 28, from 3:00 to 4:30pm and 5:00 to 7:30pm. They are arena style. The counselors and administrators will also be available all evening to assist you in any way we can. Your student’s first six week grade report will come home next week, so please take this opportunity to team with your student’s teacher(s) and resolve any rising issues. I have a goal that 100% of BLHS students graduate. To reach this goal, I will need your help. Our attendance rate for September was 83%. This means that 17% of our students have been absent 10% or more of the time. I enthusiastically applaud the efforts to get to school and those who are here consistently. I am very concerned with the 17% who are chronically absent (10% or greater is considered chronically absent).

It will be a wonderful way to start the Thanksgiving season."
