Sunday Message

Week of 10/22/18

Greetings Twelve Bridges Elementary Families,


I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! Thanks to all of those who made the Mother/Son Dance a success.


We have a lot coming up and lot of information in this week's message. We have a district professional development day on Monday so there is no school for students. Red Ribbon week starts this Tuesday. Below, you'll find information on the upcoming Veterans Day Assembly and how to schedule your parent/teacher conferences.


Thanks for everything!

Veterans Day Assemblies

Veterans Day Assemblies – Due to the increased popularity and limited space for this event, this year we will have two Veterans Day assemblies.

The schedule is as follows:

Thursday, November 8, 2018 in the Multipurpose Room

8:30 am – Grades TK-2 Veterans Day Assembly. This is a shortened assembly without the photo slideshow. Students will be singing and showing their appreciation for our Veterans.

9:15 am – Grades 3-5 Veterans Day Assembly. This assembly will include the photo slideshow as well as students performing and showing their appreciation for our Veterans.

Family, friends, and community members are welcome to join at the assembly of their choosing.

Veteran Photos- Our annual Veterans Day Assemblies are coming soon! If you would like your veteran to be a part of the 3rd-5th grade assembly slideshow, please send the photo, name of veteran, and relation to your TBE student to Mrs. Gale at agale@wpusd.org. Due to the length of the slideshow, please limit your submission to only 3 photos. Deadline to get photos submitted is October 31st.

Proof of Residency

Yes, it’s that time of year once again! Time to renew your Proof of Residency here at Twelve Bridges Elementary. Please bring in a copy of a current utility bill showing your address. Newly enrolled Kinder, TK and new students do not need to participate. Thank you for responding to our request so promptly!
