Bridge Bulletin

September 17, 2021

From the Desk of Mrs. Rounds

I cannot believe we have already been in school for one month today! Please check your kid's backpacks for an envelope from the teacher. Inside the envelope you will find a yellow progress report. The progress report includes baseline data from Acadience reading and math, Imagine Learning reading and math, ESGI (kindergarten) and Galileo (1st - 6th). Please email your child's teacher if you did not receive a progress report.

Please keep reading for important updates and information.

As always, thank you for entrusting Bridge with your children's education.

See you Monday!

Progress Reports

Your student's progress reports show baseline data from our initial assessments. We are super excited to see their growth and will send home additional reports in January and June. Teachers will communicate student progress throughout the year via emails, notes home and personalized learning plans (grades 1 - 6).

You can compare your child's scores with the grade level benchmark scores shown on our website under the Student Data icon. Simply scroll down that page to Benchmark Data

Declaration of Household Income Form and Free/Reduced Lunch

Please take a moment to complete the free / reduced application through Aspire to determine if your student qualifies for free or reduced meals. This past school year this data was also used to provide qualifying parents with a debit card which included some COVID relief funds.

As an alternative, parents may also complete the Declaration of Household Income form which is found on our website or in the form box at the school. You can download the form using the link below. Completion of this form does not provide students with free or reduced meals.

Fresh Fruit and Veggie Program (FFVP)

This week our kiddos got to try dragon fruit, chocolate persimmon and a jujube fruit. The jujube fruit is also known as a Chinese date. Ask your kids about them!

Excuse an Absence

PLEASE excuse your child's absence by:

  • Calling our attendance line (801)499-5180
  • Using the online form found on our website under the Student Data icon
