Dear Twelve Bridges families,

Just a reminder that there is no school tomorrow for a staff professional development day.

I hope to see you all at the Harvest Festival this Friday!


Mr. Middleton

Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival

Friday, October 18th at 5-8pm is our annual Harvest Festival! This is one of our most popular and well-attended family events of the year, so get your bracelets now! Cash accepted at the “door”. We will have a pre-paid line and in-person payment line to speed up entry.

Tickets on sale now! One bracelet gets you access to unlimited games, prizes and activities (kids 3 and under are free). Come hungry! Food trucks will be on site (food cost separate). 20% of the food proceeds go back to the school! Fantastic DJ, inflatables, trackless train, some old and new games, amazing vendors and a silent auction!

Calling all Vendors! Please contact Leah Bassett at if you would like to participate in this big family event. No businesses duplicated. First come first served.

Harvest Festival volunteers are needed! One hour shifts. The PTC would like to ask any parents or grandparents who are available to help during the festival to please contact Leah Bassett at to sign up.

Cake Walk desserts are needed! It wouldn't be a Harvest Festival without the cake walk! Anyone who can donate cookies, brownies, cupcakes or cakes for the cake walk please drop off your donations at the front office between the dates of 10/16-10/18 (no nuts please). This year we ask that you separate the smaller baked goods such as cookies/brownies/etc. into smaller portions (small wrapped plates or disposable containers work well). Do not drop off desserts any earlier than the 16th or later than 10am on the 18th.

We are excited for our fall family night!!

Travel Study

We are receiving many travel study requests in the office. I wanted to review the travel study requirements that are in the TBE handbook.

  • Travel must be for five or more school days
  • The travel study request must be made at least two weeks in advance of the trip to allow the teacher adequate time to prepare the work
  • Student must be in good academic standing and meet attendance requirements
  • All work is due the day the student returns to school

Thank you!

Volunteers for ROAR Store

Dear TBE Families,

We would love to have our ROAR store open every Friday. Our ROAR store is open on Fridays during 1st through 5th grade lunch recess. Please consider signing up for one of our open slots. The ROAR store only happens once a week on Fridays and if we do not have volunteers the store has to be closed.

If you are interested but have questions, please email Kathleen Cummings at

Thank you!

Adopt a Planter


Please consider “Stepping Up” to adopt a planter for the school year. Your job will be basic maintenance of your area. Checking for weeds, removing leaves, trash, branches etc.

Your participation is greatly appreciated. It’s a way to model community service to your kids.
Let’s continue having the OUTSIDE of the school reflect the great things happening INSIDE!

For more information, please contact Ashley Indrieri at (530) 844-2310.

Box Tops

Hello TBES students, families, staff, and friends! Thank you for your support with box tops. Especially with the changes with going digital. To date we have collected $41 with digital box tops! This equals 4,100 box tops! Digital box tops are SO easy to collect. You just need an app on your phone and scan your receipts each time you shop. That’s all there is to it! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

I will be submitting physical box tops by November 1st. So if you have the “old school” box tops please please please turn them in as soon as possible. They are still being accepted and will earn our school money. Thank you once again for your help and support. Please let me know if you have any questions and/or concerns.
