BONSALL – Fall has been a fantastic time of year for fun happenings in the Bonsall Unified School District. In addition to Back to School nights, students, educators, and families were offered a vast array of activities to celebrate their community.
Bonsall's elementary schools hosted fundraisers sponsored by their PTA organizations. Bonsall West students had their annual jogathon and were treated to their principal, Mr. Camacho, participating in "Colt Pride" by wearing a horse costume. At Bonsall Elementary School, the PTA produced their annual Monster Mash featuring a dunk tank for teachers as well as many fun rides and games.
The ASB organizations at the secondary schools hosted dances to reflect the time of year. Sullivan Middle School hosted a costume dance for Halloween, while Bonsall High School enjoyed a classic Homecoming Dance, "Under the Lights." The high school also conducted a costume contest with the winner being voted on by the students.
Vivian Banks Charter School's Ballet Folklorico performed with the other elementary dancers at the school board meeting and BHS car show. The more experienced Folklorico performers from Sullivan Middle and Bonsall High School entertained audiences at the Hispanic Heritage Cultural Night.
The cultural night also gave Spanish Language students from the 8th grade's Spanish 1 to the high school's Advanced Placement Spanish an opportunity to display some of their knowledge of Spanish speaking cultures around the world.
The anti-drug "Red Ribbon Week" was a success on all campuses, with Bonsall West orchestrating an aerial shot where students arranged themselves on the blacktop to spell out, "Just Say No." Doors were decorated with drug awareness slogans and the week was capped off with a BMX Bike event where professional bike riders performed high flying tricks while promoting a message of staying healthy and safe.
The season was capped off with Bonsall West's annual Hat Parade where students design and wear hats inspired by their favorite books.
