Welcome to Bonham Elementary School!  We are excited to be a LIGHTHOUSE – Leader in Me school.  The Leader in Me schools teach Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to provide students and educators the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.  Reminders of the seven habits and leadership quotes decorate our school, and educators plan to guide students in developing the habits throughout the year.

     One tool students and faculty will use to develop leadership skills is the Leadership Notebook.  Through use of the notebooks, all Bonham Bulldogs will showcase progress and pinpoint areas in which improvement is needed.  During the spring semester, each child will share their progress with their parents through a student-led conference.  We are excited to build on this initiative and look forward to encouraging students to take greater responsibility for their learning.  During the  school year, our student leaders will be encouraged to develop these habits:

Be Proactive

Begin With the End in Mind 

Put First Things First

Think Win-Win

Seek First to Understand, Then be Understood


 Sharpen the Saw

      At Bonham, our goal is to achieve excellence in leadership and scholarship.

We are the Bulldogs!

Our colors are Red and White.

Our school motto is “Learn! Lead! Succeed!”

Join us in making Bonham the best it can be.

The Leader in Me


Learn! Lead! Succeed!
As a Leader in Me school, we have set the following school-wide leadership goals for the 2019-2020 school year:
  • Bonham will increase attendance from 95.82% for the 2016-2017 school year to 96% attendance for the 2019-2020 school year.
  • Bonham students will achieve 100% reading growth goals using Accelerated Reader during the 2019-2020 school year. (We will check progress each six weeks.)
  • Bonham students will achieve 100% grade level appropriate math fact fluency growth goals during the 2019-2020 school year.  (We will check progress each six weeks.)

We are excited about tracking these goals throughout the year.  As a student in a Leader in Me Lighthouse School, your child will be tracking individual goals as well.  Ask about them!
