OGLA (Girls) have plans for a season opening Jamboree’s on April 10th and having a full season thru June 10th. Field availability is going to be a challenge this year. Field space will dictate practice locations and times so practice locations and times are unknown at this time. This is also making it difficult to start our practice season on time.

Mr. Karr's Counseling Corner

Hi Bridgeport families,

I hope you are doing well. I created a space where members of our community could find counseling, food, and other community resources. I hope this website will help us stay connected during this unsettling time. On the website you will find resources for supporting students at home, such as breathing and relaxation tools, ways to support children in identifying their emotions, and strategies for managing difficult behaviors. I will also post read alouds periodically and will be picking stories that seem relevant to the current time and the current needs of our students.

Thank you,

Jordan Karr
