Dear Twelve Bridges Elementary families,

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you hard working moms out there! I hope you spend the day relaxing and surrounded by those who love you the most.

Thank you so much to Leah Bassett, our PTC, and all of the parents who contributed to make an over the top, amazing Staff Appreciation week for all of us at TBE. We are so grateful for the thoughtful gestures, kind acts, and wonderful surprises throughout the week. Our staff was definitely feeling the love!

Our state testing for 3rd-5th graders will start this week. We are working hard to create an environment where students will put their best effort forward. We are excited to welcome students to school tomorrow with a positive and encouraging atmosphere. Please make sure your students get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive on time. Testing will take place over the next two weeks for 3rd and 4th graders and over the next three weeks for our 5th graders. We are excited to see what our hard working students have learned this year.

Let’s have another great week!

Mr. Middleton
