New Bridge Middle School

Tis' The Season December 2021

Principal's Message

As we continue to move through all the challenges of COVID, our students and staff have shown great resilience. They are continuing to work hard and experience learning and growing each day. As we finish this last month of 2021, we will be supporting our local food pantry with a canned food drive, sharing musical presentations from our orchestra, band, and chorus, and enjoying a long-earned rest before the New Year! Happy Holidays from the administration to our BEAR families.
