Bridger’s Administrative Staff are committed to engaging 100% of Bridger families impacted by the transition of Bridger to a K-5 for the next school year.
This week we started the Neighborhood Middle School Transition.
We had a virtual meeting on Monday evening:
On Thursday evening families were invited to a virtual meeting with Harrison Park:
Here is the survey so that we can know what families are thinking about this transition and so that we know if you have any questions that need to be answered.
Madison HS wants your opinion!
Community Feedback on School Name Finalists
The committee for the renaming of Madison High School has thoroughly reviewed all community input received for a recommendation of names. A list of finalists who meet district policy, committee principles, and vision for the new name of our school has been selected and those are below.
Now the committee is seeking community feedback to help inform their final proposal to the superintendent and the school board. Your input is greatly appreciated. The Renaming Committee will begin deliberations on 2/11, but will still consider input as late as 2/14. This survey will close at 9 a.m. on 2/15.

MAP Testing (Math and Reading)
We haven't administered the assessment since last winter due to COVID and Distance Learning.
This is a low stakes test and is not the state SBAC assessment students usually take in the spring.
Week of February 8th students will be taking the one for math and
Week of February 15th students will be taking one for reading.
Your student's Math and Language Arts teachers will be, or have communicated with students and families when during the week that will happen for them.
Administering this assessment virtually is new for all of us so if you have questions, please feel free to email Ms. Roletto at email@example.com

Student Emails and Google Calendar
- Mr. Roletto will be sending information about activities throughout the year
- Teachers will confirm appointments with students
It's a skill they will need to have when they get to high school and expected to use.
Also it will be important for students to use their email because we WANT to text students, but we aren't able to use REMIND messaging directly with students as some parents have asked because their is an age requirement that most of our students don't meet.
