Dear Twelve Bridges Families,

We’re about halfway through our Fun Run program! Thank you to everyone who’s already pledged their support.

Just so you know, students have been given a special WEEKEND CHALLENGE! If a student receives a total of $2 per lap in NEW pledges ($60 in flat donations) or more over the weekend, he/she will receive a bonus prize in addition to their normal prizes.

Enter all pledges on FUNRUN.COM, and be sure to watch the MindSpark videos with your child, too. Thanks again for your support!

Our candidates for the officer positions in Tiger Crew did an excellent job with their speeches. It takes a lot of courage to speak in front of the whole school. After all of the votes have been tallied, we have the results. Here are this year's Tiger Crew officers:

  • President: Sophie Bassett
  • Vice President: Gabby Perry
  • Secretary: Tessa Gardin
  • Treasurer: Riogan Hector

Congratulations to them all! I'm looking forward to hearing your great ideas. The first Tiger Crew meeting will be this Thursday, September 26th from 2:45-3:45, in room 205.

Thanks for everything!

Mr. Middleton

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.
Let’s continue having the OUTSIDE of the school reflect the great things happening INSIDE!

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 (please note the name of your child(ren) in the message)

Thank you for your timely response.

Box Tops

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.
