Letter From the Assistant Principal

Dear BMECW families,

I am honored to have the opportunity to briefly introduce myself.  My name is Tom Bonner, and I have the privilege of fulfilling the role as Assistant Principal of Blue Mountain Elementary West and Cressona.

I am a Blue Mountain graduate and have been working in the Blue Mountain School District for the past 8 years.  My professional experience has included working with students from grades 4-12, with the majority of it being a science teacher at our middle school.

I currently live in the Blue Mountain School District with my wife Katie and three children Kailin (7), Quinn (5) and Maddox (1).

I am a graduate of Alvernia University, where I attained a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I achieved my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with Principal Certification from Wilkes University. My goal is to maintain a positive learning environment where all students feel safe and have the resources they need to be successful.

I am very confident that the BMECW staff will continue to meet the intellectual, physical, and social/ emotional needs of your children, our students.  Partnering with you and your children, I am looking forward to the rest of the 2016-2017 school year. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to call our main office or email me.  I believe open communication is very essential in a school and encourage you to reach out to myself or Mrs. Frederick with any questions you may have.  I look forward to meeting you and thank you in advance for welcoming me into this remarkable learning community.

HONESTY, RESPECT, and RESPONSIBILITY defines the “The Eagle Way” here at Blue Mountain. You can be assured that I will uphold these values personally, as your Assistant Principal. Thank you for your time and your continued support.
