From the Desk of Mrs. Rounds
What a difference a year makes! Teachers have been practicing procedures and kids have settled in. There's a ton of learning and fun happening in every room!
Please keep reading for important updates and information.
As always, thank you for entrusting Bridge with your children's education.
See you Monday!
Background Checks for Parent Vounteers
Parking Lot Reminders
This is a reminder that we ALL need to work together to keep our families safe! Something VERY concerning is parents parking on Midland Drive (the road in front of the school) heading north and then flipping a U Turn instead of going to, and waiting at the stop sign to turn right. Roy City police have been informed about the matter in order to increase patrols on Midland Drive to ensure the safety of all of our families.
- Traffic only flows one way - please look at the picture.
- Turn right ONLY when leaving the parking lot.
- Be patient - take turns
- Pull ALL THE WAY forward
- Do NOT motion kids to your car. Pick them up from the curb only. Motioning them to your car puts them at risk of injury.
- Be patient - take turns
- Remind kiddos to stay alert and look for your car. Nothing slows down the pick up lane more than a car having to wait for kids.
Parents are always invited to volunteer to help in the parking lot.Just show up 15 minutes before school is out, grab a yellow vest and ask the office how you can assist.

Personalized Learning Plans (PLP) and Advisory
The PLP is shared digitally with parents. Once every quarter parents can join a PLP meeting with their student. Your child's advisor is the teacher your child is assigned to in Aspire. Advisory officially begins Friday, September 10 and is held 8:45 - 10:45.
Students will also have their picture placed on a name badge to wear during school. Students should NOT bring their name badges home. In January we will send home information to purchase a yearbook. Retake picture day is scheduled for Friday, October 22.
NOTE: During spring pictures students will be able to wear non-dress code clothing.
NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6
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.
