A letter from Jordan Mills

Dear Bridgeport Families,

It was wonderful seeing so many of you a couple of weeks ago at our pick-up event! Having students on campus, even for just a few minutes, filled our hearts. Thank you for taking the time to come by! Thank you also for your participation in our virtual conferences this year. We are encouraged by the growth your students are showing and really appreciate your honesty and thoughtful input on this new school situation.

I would like to share just a few quick reminders about a couple of important upcoming events. First, please mark your calendars for next Thursday, November 19th at 6:00 for a virtual technology night. Families will have a chance to learn more about the Canvas Observer tools that can be used to track your child’s assignments. If you are hoping to learn more about how to navigate Canvas as a parent, this is for you!

Also, please mark your calendars for next Tuesday, November 17th from 5:00-9:00 for our Bridgeport PTO restaurant night at Chipotle. This will take place at the Nyberg location. A portion of the proceeds will go to our PTO who has been supporting our Bridgeport students and community with donations that support the purchase of schools supplies, meals, and other basic needs for our students.

As always, we are here to help. If you have questions, requests, or ideas, please do not hesitate to reach out to your student’s teacher, our phenomenal office team, our family partnership advocate, Vilma Madrigal, or contact me directly. Have a wonderful weekend!

Library News from Mrs. Anton.....

We are ready to start Curbside Service for the library! Starting Monday, November 9th we began checking out books from the Bridgeport Library. Don’t forget to turn in any books that you might still have from last school year to the dropbox outside the front door. Follow the directions in the infographic for putting books on hold in Destiny. It’s that easy. Please remember to wait for me to email or call you to let you know the book is ready. Then just come by the school during office hours, M-F 8:00am - 4:00pm. You will find your books on the blue cart next to the dropbox.

Happy Reading Bulldogs!

Mr. Karr's Counseling Corner

Hi Bridgeport families,

I hope you are doing well. I created a space where members of our community could find counseling, food, and other community resources. I hope this website will help us stay connected during this unsettling time. On the website you will find resources for supporting students at home, such as breathing and relaxation tools, ways to support children in identifying their emotions, and strategies for managing difficult behaviors. I will also post read alouds periodically and will be picking stories that seem relevant to the current time and the current needs of our students.

Thank you,

Jordan Karr

Here are the Family videos for this week: Self-Management, I Can Manage My Emotions!

Self-management is managing your thoughts and actions to help you make positive choices, accomplish your goals, and meet expectations.

A good question to ask everyone at home would be:

How can you be more responsible for your own choices?
