Big picture

Dear Twelve Bridges families,

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! We have our first Sami's Circuit tomorrow at school. Please make sure your students wear comfortable clothes, bring water, and are ready to work out!

This past week, Kris Wyatt, representative from the Lincoln Potters Baseball team, came out to talk to students about our Potters Fundraiser. Students should have brought home packets to explain how it works. Students will be selling ticket vouchers for home games. On May 27th, there will be a Twelve Bridges Elementary Night at the Potters game. Our choir will be singing the national anthem and the student who sells the most vouchers will throw out the first pitch!

Last year's event was a lot of fun and I'm hoping we can fill up the stadium with TBE Tigers that night.

There will be no Tiger Crew meeting on Thursday.

Looking forward to a great week!


Mr. Middleton

Parking Lot

Parents and caregivers: please do not park along the green curb during pick up/drop off times. Our parking lot gets extremely congested during these times.

Our parking lot is very busy from 7:50-8:15 and 2:30-3:00.

Thank you for your help on this!
