Message from the Principal

I am so excited for another great year at Bon Air Elementary! My background in education includes eleven years as an elementary teacher in 3rd and 4th grade, an assistant principal at a primary school, three years as a principal at an intermediate school, and I am in my second year as principal at Bon Air Elementary. I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in special education, a master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Regent University, and I am currently finishing my doctoral degree in instructional leadership through the College of William and Mary. I strongly believe in the power of relationships. Our theme at Bon Air is:  Growing a village, one relationship at a time. My door is always open, and I am always willing to help. I am looking forward to building on the successes we experienced last year as we focus on relationships that will benefit our students and our school for many years to come.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Heather Gentry, Principal
