Principal's Pen

Dr. Catherine Gardner

Welcome to Bonaire Elementary School!

Bonaire Elementary is a school rooted in rich traditions and has demonstrated academic excellence through the years. I truly believe that all our students are capable of learning and achieving at high levels if provided a positive and nurturing environment rooted in a culture of collaboration. I am thankful to work with this community of educators, students, parents, and local community partners to provide our children with the best educational experience possible! It's GREAT to be a Bonaire Wildcat!
