Village Fair Volunteers Needed

The Village Fair will be here before we know it!  Please consider volunteering a couple of hours of your time on October 17th (or on the 16th for set-up).  The Village Fair chairmen have put together a sign-up genius of all the tasks that are needed to be fulfilled to make the BAES Village Fair happen – it really does take a Village!

Thanks in advance for volunteering a few hours.  This is also a great opportunity for our BAES alum to come back Bon Air and earn volunteer hours!

Back to School Night K-2

Dear Bon Air Families,

This is a reminder our Back to School Night for Kindergarten, First and Second grade is Monday, September 28th at 6:30.  This meeting is for parents only and we will start the meeting in the cafeteria.  This year we are starting early so the teachers and I can share some information about our new elementary report card being introduced in Chesterfield County this year.  I hope you will be able to come and learn more about your child’s class and grade level this year.

Thank you and have a good evening.

Mr. Tetlow

Parent Resources

Chesterfield County Public Schools has two free apps to help students, parents and the community easily access information about career and technical education and about breakfasts and lunches in school cafeterias.

Career and technical education

A new app is available for career and technical education in Chesterfield County Public Schools. The app enables parents, students, alumni, faculty and staff members to quickly access the who, what, when and where for career and technical education. The app, offered in partnership with SchoolInfoApp, is free and features

  • announcements and information
  • student tools
  • links to divisionwide information about career and technical education
  • picture galleries and other media

Go to to download the Chesterfield Career and Technical Education app. It is also available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

School menus and nutritional information

A mobile app makes it easy to find out what is on the menu in the cafeterias of Chesterfield County Public Schools. The free app — School Lunch by Nutrislice — can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play. The school system’s website also provides a link:

The app replaces printed menus for middle schools and high schools and supplements the printed menus that elementary families receive at the beginning of the school year.

Providing information in English and in Spanish, the app offers details about school breakfasts and lunches. Users simply choose the school they are interested in, select breakfast or lunch, then view detailed nutritional information (including possible allergens) about the entrees and side dishes available each day. New this year is a feature called MyMealPlan that enables parents and students to build a meal using the daily menu options to get a nutrient summary of the foods they choose.
