District Arts Night

Another great event for Bonny Eagle Wednesday evening---our Visual and Performing Arts District Arts Night!  Visual artwork from grades K-12 was displayed, and there were performances in both instrumental and choral music, dance, and musical theater.  There were slide shows of theater performances, and displays of photography work and video production.  Thank you to all in the community who joined us Wednesday evening to celebrate the amazing work of our students and acknowledge the hard work of our visual and performing arts teachers in MSAD #6.

Senior Citizen Dinner

A great night was had by all at the Senior Citizen Dinner last Thursday night.  Our district senior citizens were treated to a wonderful turkey dinner, prepared by the MSAD #6 food service department, and served by the district administrators.  Students from our Key Club and National Honor Society were also on hand to help out. Flowers from Snell's Greenhouses and pieces of student artwork, along with a wooden adirondack chair made by students, were donated to the event.  These were giveaways to lucky ticket-holding seniors.  Thank you to all who participated in making such a fantastic night possible!

Writers Tea

The 29th Annual District Writing Contest Writers Tea was held last evening at Bonny Eagle Middle School.  Over 500 entries were received, from grades pre-K through 8 and from Bonny Eagle staff members. Every piece was read by a panel of teachers, and 90 students emerged as winners.  Ten students per grade level (K-8), along with all 15 of our pre-K classroom writers and 10 staff members, were recognized for their excellence.  They were congratulated publicly with a ribbon ceremony, and by having their work printed in this year's anthology, of which they each received a copy.  Each of our pre-K authors also received their work framed.  A reception followed, for winners and their families, where cookies and juice were served.

An especially poignant moment came at the end of the night when a parent shared how much the night meant to her.  Her first grade son was a winner this year and her older son was a winner when he was in first grade a few years ago.  To make it extra special, she was a student in the Bonny Eagle system and was a writing contest winner in 1986---she still has her book!  She sent these pictures today---thank you Hanson family!!!
