Does a situation/event ever make you or your kids feel frustrated/upset/overwhelmed/etc? A strategy to try for adults and children, is to walk away, use calming strategies to help bring your heart rate down, & reset. #coping

Bonnie Brae

6th grade Curbside Ceremony, June 10th at 9:30 am

The "curbside" promotion ceremony will take place on the original date, June 10th at 9:30 am. The "curbside" celebration will take place in the bus loop. Teachers will be there to celebrate our 6th graders by handing out promotion certificates, awards, trophies and medals for all their accomplishments as you and your family drive thru.

There will not be opportunities to take photos with staff at this time.  FCPS must follow the strict guidelines from the health department on social distancing.  If that changes before June 10th, you'll be the first to know.

The school will be decorated with balloons and yard signs that you and your family can access before and after the entire celebration is over to commemorate their final days at Bonnie Brae. This is a small celebration to honor their hard work and the time we've spent together at Bonnie Brae over the years.  More details about this very special day will come soon so that you may plan accordingly.
