BKW introductory letter from new Secondary Principal Kane

Dear Berne-Knox-Westerlo Secondary School families,

My name is Bonnie Kane and it is with great delight that I write this letter of introduction, for those who may not have met me, as your new Secondary School Principal. I’m honored to join the administrative team of a district that is so devoted to the success of all students. For the past 15 years, I have been a middle and high school English and social studies teacher, as well as the district’s Career and College Readiness Coordinator. My passion lies in educating all students to their fullest potential. I’m confident that my new role will provide me with the opportunity to work with all students within the building to ensure their engagement, growth, and success. I will work diligently to spend time with students, get to know their interests and abilities, and advocate for them tirelessly.

This summer, I’ll be working with our administrative team and staff members to identify goals for growth for our future, while still honoring the district’s strong traditions and emphasis on community.

This year promises to be extremely successful as we continue to regain a sense of normalcy following two years of the pandemic. You can expect that I will continue to work with teachers to ensure that your child(ren) has the tools and support that they need to be most successful. Our extremely talented staff will continue to offer our students world class instruction that will provide them with ample preparation for college and career pursuits.

In addition to working with students, I’m excited to develop a partnership with you. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges and rewards that come with the relationships with our children. I assure you that my door is always open, and I welcome your positive contributions to our learning community. I hope that our collaboration will foster the absolute best learning experience for your student. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns that you may have as the school year progresses.

Bonnie Kane
Berne-Knox-Westerlo Secondary School Principal
