Big picture

Dear Twelve Bridges families,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It is with mixed feelings that I would like to announce that our Assistant Principal, Mark Rodriguez, has been named interim Principal of Creekside Oaks Elementary School. We are all sad to see Mr. Rodriguez go, but we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor. I know Mr. Rodriguez will do an excellent job for the students, staff, and families of Creekside Oaks. We are currently working on a plan to get some additional administration help soon.

Tomorrow night is our Sami Circuit Family Night at 6:00pm. Bring your family to the multipurpose for a great workout. We hope to see you and your family there! RSVP's are not necessary.

There is a dangerous viral challenge showing up on social media recently. This may be a good opportunity to talk to your students about the dangers of these types of challenges. Here is a link for more information on the "Skullbreaker/Trip Jump" challenge.

Earlier today, I sent out directions on how to participate in the California School Parent Survey. For your convenience, I have also included those directions below.

Looking forward to a great week!


Mr. Middleton

California School Parent Survey Directions

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. If you are a STAR parent, you are welcome to use the green area for pick up/drop off as long as it is outside of our typical pick up/drop off time. Our parking lot is very busy from 7:50-8:15 and 2:30-3:00.

Thank you for your help on this!

Box Tops Update

Hello there TBES students, staff, families, friends! By March 2nd I need to submit all physical box tops we as a school community have collected. Please turn in box tops to the office as soon as possible. It will be very helpful if they are not expired, trimmed neatly, and glued or taped to a box top collection paper. But of course they will be accepted any way you have them. The final submission date for digital and physical box tops this school year March 2nd. After that we will continue to collect and save up toward our goal of 2,020 box tops for the school year. We have until July 1st to reach this goal. After I submit on March 2nd I will send out an update on our progress. Thanks so very much for supporting TBES with collecting!!!
