Sunday Message

Week of 10/1/18

Greetings Twelve Bridges Elementary Families,


Our Fun Run was a huge success on Friday! Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer and cheer on the kids. I would also like to thank you all for your generous donations. The money raised through events like the Fun Run support our PTC which is the main source of funding for so much that we do. Specifically, they help support and offset our class field trips and assemblies, purchase supplemental curriculum for teachers, pay for professional development opportunities for our staff, and purchase technology for the school.


Thanks for all of your support!


Your proud principal,


Mr. Middleton

Parents/Guardians please help us out!

We currently have 649 students and we still need 185 students’ information updated. If you haven't already created an account on the Parent Portal, please do so right away. Once you are in your child's account, select on the left hand side "TBE returning student". Update any information that needs to be updated. Please check off if you give your child permission for internet usage, photo in the yearbooks, and if there is an emergency. Please use this link to create your account. https://powerschool.wpusd.org/public/ If you need help please contact the office and we would be happy to help you!

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.
