Principal's Notes

Happy week before vacation! We have a lot going on this week.


Students have completed the Winter MAP Testing session. I will be working with teachers to identify students who may need additional support to achieve their expected growth.


Our 3rd Grade will be hosting Mass this coming Tuesday at 9 am.


The last home games for our basketball teams will be Tuesday night, held at the Frolio Gym. Both teams will be playing St. Paul School, the Girls at 6:00 pm and Boys 7:00 pm.


Students in Grades K - 8 will have a presentation by the American Heart Association on Wednesday, and donations will be accepted to support the American Heart Association on Friday for the Dress Down Day - Wear Red!


Cardenio Consulting - recently we have begun a collaboration with Cardenio Consulting to help us reinforce our enrollment/retention practices and also to develop an Alumni database. We have been working with Dan Rocha, and he will be leading parent focus groups on Tuesday, February 25th. He is looking for 8 - 15 parents per session.


8 - 9 am - Early Childhood (Preschool +Pre-K) and Level 1 (Kindergarten, Grades 1 + 2)

9 - 10 am - Level 2 (Grades 3, 4 and 5)

10 - 11 am - Level 3 (Grades 6, 7 and 8)


If you are interested in volunteering for a parent focus group please RSVP to Mary Johnson in the school office at sbsoffice@stbridgetschool.us. First come first serve. Coffee and pastries will be available during the sessions which will be taking place in the Parish Hall.


Thank you in advance for your help in assessing our current programs and practices. Which is a step in the process of enhancing Saint Bridget School.


Don't forget...homework assignments, both assigned and missing, are available online via your Renweb account, under "Student".


All my best,

Matthew Collins

St. Patties Day Student Contest - DUE Monday

Dear SBS Students,


We are in need of a redesign for our St. Patrick’s Day Parade shirts and we need YOUR help! If you would like to participate, there is a shamrock template on the back of this page. Please use this to design what could be the new front of our shirts. Be creative!!!!

All entries need to be returned to school NO LATER THAN MONDAY 2/10/2020. Please return them to Mrs. Johnson’s office Attn: Mrs. Gerritsen.


The winner will be chosen at the PTO meeting on 2/11/2020. For your efforts, the artist who creates the winning design will receive a FREE DRESS DOWN DAY AND AN ICE-CREAM SUNDAE PARTY for your entire class!!!!


In addition, for our level 3 students, we also need something for the back of the shirt. Currently, the shirts say “WHERE FAITH, FRIENDSHIPS AND FUTURES ARE FORMED”. What else could we say about our school? You can use your great creative writing skills to design the back of our shirts, even if you don’t want to submit a front design.


We are looking forward to seeing your wonderful work!


Kristin Gerritsen
