Dear BBMS Families,
I would like to take a moment to share with you some personal news about my health. Those of you who are new to Bonnie Branch this year may not know this, but I was diagnosed with cancer last October. Last year I underwent surgery and a treatment plan and that lasted through this August. Thankfully, I am happy to report that my first scans after treatment revealed that I am officially cancer free. There will be one more surgery to finalize my recovery which is scheduled for next week. This will require me to be away from BBMS for about 4 to 6 weeks.
During my absence, Mrs. Shawn Hastings will be the acting principal and Mr. Jon Dupski will become the acting assistant principal. I hope you’ve had the chance to read their personal bio’s that we emailed to you recently. Mrs. Hastings and Mr. Dupski have jumped right in at BBMS, know many of our students, and are showing how prepared they are to keep things moving in a positive direction at school. I am sure you will see more of them as we have events coming up in November which will bring our community together (American Education Week, Music Concerts, and Parent Conferences to name a few). Please do not hesitate to reach out to them if you need anything.
I cannot thank you enough for the care and support that you’ve shown to me throughout this past year and I am so excited to be near the “finish line” with this surgery. Your support means so much to me and I look forward to seeing you all when I get back. BBMS is a special school and community because of you, our students, and staff. See you soon!
