First a BIG Thank You to all who are Fun Run Family T-Shirt Sponsors! We had a record number this year and the PTC and our school greatly appreciate it!!
We can’t wait for the school kick-off on Friday, September 13th and the FUN event two weeks later on Friday, September 27th!
We know it’s early, but for all of you planners who have already been reaching out to us, Harvest Festival Vendors are being accepted NOW! This amazing family night will be on Friday, October 18th @ 5-8pm. If you are interested, please complete the attached form. We will have no duplicate companies, so first come first served!
Please contact Leah Bassett, our PTC President, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Pick-up and Drop-off Procedures
Teachers and staff members are on supervision duty beginning at 7:55 AM. Please do not have students arrive before that time. When students arrive, they are to head out to the playground until the morning bell rings at 8:10. Backpacks can be dropped off at the designated location for lining up. Since there is no supervision in the clusters, students need to stay on the playground prior to the start of school. At the end of the day, we ask parents to refrain from entering the campus prior to 2:40.
Traffic only flows one way in the parking lots in front of school and near the park with both parking lots exiting at the same location. With regards to the Eastridge entrance to the school, we are asking everyone to obey the posted green sign and refrain from turning right directly out of our parking lot during the hours of 7:30-8:15 AM and 2:30-3:15 PM as this poses a direct risk to our students and crossing guard. If you need to turn right, please go straight through Eastridge, then turn right on Letterkenny Drive. Letterkenny will exit out onto Eastridge just east of the school utilizing Bradborne Drive. Please drive carefully and slowly down our neighboring streets out of consideration and safety for our neighbors and children!
The area in front of the Multipurpose room is a red curb “Fire Lane”. Please refrain from parking in these and other red curb areas at all times. Also, please keep the green loading zone in front of school open during the hours of 7:45-8:15 AM and 2:30-3:00 PM for any service trucks, delivery vehicles, and students or visitors with disabilities that may be stopping in at that time. If seen there, you will be respectfully asked to move your vehicle. The green loading zone remains open for loading and unloading of students and items during all other times.
For walkers or bike riders, the entrance at the Arroyo Madrone cul-de-sac adjacent to our school will be open as well. Please note that during pick-up and drop-off times, the Arroyo Madrone entrance is not for dropping off or picking up students by car, but rather for walkers and bike riders only. Parents must drop-off or pick up their children at the corner of Arroyo Madrone and Briarton as it is a much easier location from which to get in and out and does not cause traffic congestion for back gate neighbors.
Choir will start September 9th with Mrs. Gale! This year choir will be held during all Early Release Mondays from 1:45-2:50 pm. We will be meeting on the stage in the Multi.
If interested, please fill out and return the choir sign-up form to Mrs. Gale or the office. Choir sign-up forms need to be in by Friday, August 30st. I am only able to take 60 students, so 4th and 5th graders will be placed first as long as their forms are in by August 30st. Interested 3rd grade students will be placed “first come-first serve” so get those sign-up forms turned in!
Mrs. Gale has created a private Instagram account for her music classroom! If you are interested in seeing what your students are doing in music, request to follow this account: tbemusicroom
There will be no student faces in any of the posts.

A doctor’s note is asked for all medical appointments where the student misses school time or 3 or more consecutive illness days.
Proof of Residency
Proof of Residency Due By 9/30/19
Every year, we ask our families to submit Proof of Residency. This gives us the opportunity to ensure we have your current address and live within the Twelve Bridges Elementary School boundaries. If you ae residing outside of these boundaries, this gives us the opportunity to make sure we have the proper transfer paper work on file. Proper Proof of Residency is a current utility bill (dated August or September 2019). If you are residing with another family, you must provide a McKinney-Vento Homeless Declaration Form (this form is available in the office).
You may submit this by:
· Dropping a copy off in the office (please note the name of your child(ren) on the copy)
· Email copy to firstname.lastname@example.org (please note the name of your child(ren) in the message)
Thank you for your timely response.
Adopt a Planter
ADOPT A PLANTER!!!!!
Please consider “Stepping Up” to adopt a planter for the school year. Your job will be basic maintenance of your area. Checking for weeds, removing leaves, trash, branches etc.
Your participation is greatly appreciated. It’s a way to model community service to your kids.

Dear TBES students, families, and staff,
It is time to start collecting box tops for education. We are expecting great things with box tops this year!
A collection sheet with a letter was sent home on Friday. Please be sure to read the letter. Changes with how box tops will be collected have been implemented. We have already collected 75 box tops, $7.50 for this school year.
If you have any questions or concerns about collecting box tops for TBES please feel free to call, text or email me.
Thank you for your help and support in earning money for our school.
