An Update From Principal Melissa Rohr

Hello Families!


Spring conferences are just around the corner. This is a wonderful time for you to discuss your student's progress over the year and what the next steps are to finish out the 2021-2022 school year. Conferences will be online this spring. Teachers should have communicated with you around their schedule.


Spring conferences also mean we are almost to spring testing. This year our SBAC testing will take place after Spring Break. Students in grades 3-8 will test in both Math and Language Arts. Students in grades 5 and 8 will be testing in Science as well. We are excited to see how they have progressed and share with you.

FREE therapy available to all Bremerton School District students and staff

The mental health of our students is a top priority. That’s why we’re offering a free new service: Gaggle Teletherapy.


If your student is feeling sad, hopeless, angry, or anxious—or having challenges with family, friends, or relationships—therapy could help.


Gaggle Therapy is a free, confidential option to connect weekly with a therapist online and on your student’s schedule. Students can be referred by a teacher, counselor or parent, and students age 13 and older can self-refer.


Getting started is easy and only takes a few minutes. Learn more or sign-up your student here.
