Easton Thomas is a delightful boy who brightens up any room he walks into. Like most first-graders, he loves sports, outdoor activities, and playing with friends. He is affectionately referred to as “cool Easton” by his teacher, upon Easton’s request. He is also a six-year-old who happens to be defying many odds. Easton has a rare genetic disorder called Hunter’s Syndrome or MPS II. His body lacks an enzyme that helps break down long chain sugars called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the body.

Otter Pops

Third grade students at Sierra Bonita sung "Otter Pops, Otter Pops, come get your Otter Pops" in hope of selling ice cold Otter Pops.  They sold Otter Pops everyday at lunch recess at the start of the school year.  In two weeks they earned $250 which will be used for field trips.  The third grade students loved selling the Otter Pops and the other students enjoyed the cold treat on those hot days!

Our school has a wonderful website where you can access information such as the school’s Newsletter, Staff and Faculty, PTA, school hours, phone number and address, lunch menu, important dates, etc. If you haven’t had a chance to see our website, we encourage you to take the opportunity to view it at . As our school continues to grow, and in order to cut costs so that we can better serve our students’ needs here at Sierra Bonita Elementary, we will no longer send home a printed copy of the school’s newsletter beginning in October.

Sierra Bonita’s third grade classes had the privilege of spending time with Ryan Woodward.  Ryan is a very talented local artist/animator who has worked on well-known movies such as Where the Wild Things Are, Ironman 2, Superman 2 & 3, and most recently The Avengers.  He is currently working on a zombie commercial for Ford vehicles.
