From the Desk of Mrs. Rounds
It is hard to believe, but in four more wake ups we will begin the new school year! We are super excited for the changes we have in place and even more excited to have our halls filled with kids again.
As always, thank you for entrusting Bridge with your children's education.
See you Wednesday!
BASE - After School Program
Sara Tucker is our BASE Coordinator - please email her with questions or if you need to make changes to your child's BASE schedule.
Kindergarten - North Kiva
1st Grade - Middle Kiva
2nd Grade - Library
3rd - 6th Grades - remain in gym
During morning supervision students must sit quietly and watch a movie. Students are not allowed to run around, play outside, visit their classrooms or wander through the school.
FREE Meals and Home Lunch Program
Home Lunch Program - students who bring home lunch can choose fruit, veggie and milk for FREE to supplement their home lunch (they must take all three items).
Snack - Bridge has received a grant to provide a fresh fruit/vegetable snack each day for students. This program is designed to help students learn to make healthy, nutritional food choices and also to provide students with access to foods that may be new to them. Snack will be served beginning the second week of school and will be served Monday - Thursday.
Our menus are on our website:
FREE / REDUCED Meals Application
FREE / REDUCED status provides the school with extra funding to help support our Title I at-risk program which includes morning supervision and BASE as well as intervention support for struggling students. This past year it also provided additional assistance for some students in the form of an electronic debit card. It also ensures that if we are no longer able to offer free meals, parents are already qualified for free/reduced status.
Instructions for accessing ASPIRE can be found on our website or by calling the office (801)499-5180.
FREE Meals for Uniformed Military and First Responders - Lunch for Safety Program
Parents can donate to this program by dropping a check at the office with the notation "Lunch for Safety" or by using the DONATE icon on our website and paying online.

Bridge is ALWAYS in need of great subs! If you are interested in subbing at Bridge - lunchroom, recess, classrooms, special education, etc. please apply today through Ready2Teach using the button above. We pay $12 for all substitute positions.
Our student's will participate in weekly instruction of Bridge Elementary's Visible Learning traits. Students who display the traits are rewarded with a “Watch Me Learn” ticket. Tickets can be traded for prizes, dress down coupons and books. Each week a new trait will be featured in our newsletter so you can practice the skills at home with your students.
Our mission is to empower students to take ownership of their own learning. By learning, practicing and embracing these visible learning traits, students will have the skills needed to become accountable for their own lifelong learning. You can find the six Visible Learning traits on our website at Visible Learning
The mission of Bridge Elementary is to provide students with a personalized learning experience and empower them to take personal ownership and accountability for their own academic performance.
