Happy Earth Day!

We hope to see you at skate night TONIGHT

Classic Fun Center - Layton - 5:00 - 8:00 pm.

We are in the final stretch of the school year with no more breaks until Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day. Although the end of the year is approaching please know, KIDS ARE STILL LEARNING - in fact, the last few weeks of school are some of the most critical days of school for gathering data to determine what your kids learned and what we still need to teach. The data is also extremely helpful for us to know where to focus our efforts next school year.

End of year testing will begin the first of May and will include ESGI and KEEP (kindergarten), Imagine Learning Reading and Math (K-6), Galileo (1st - 6th), Acadience reading and math (K-6), and RISE (3rd - 6th). It is ESSENTIAL that your kids attend school, on time, well rested and well fed during testing.


  • BLUE BOTTOMS are not a thing - the colors for bottoms are, and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, black or tan.
  • Shoes MUST be closed toe - sandals are cute but toes are exposed and can get smooshed.

Please keep up on your emails and social media if possible as these are the first methods of communication with parents.

Have a terrific weekend!

Building Connections with Students

Our staff try really hard to build connections with students. Our mantra is "Connections Before Curriculum". This month we have a Connections Canter Challenge. Staff members are encouraged to walk laps on the scooter path, WITH STUDENTS. The objective is not only to increase wellness with staff but also to find another way to connect with kids.

Registration for Next School Year

If your child is registered to attend Bridge next year, your circumstances have changed and your child will no longer be attending Bridge, PLEASE let the office know ASAP. We are full in every grade except 5th grade and still have 100s of kiddos in the lottery waiting for a spot to open up.

ID Required to Check Out Students

PLEASE make sure you, or whomever is checking out your students, have their ID ready. Our office staff know MANY parents, but we do not know every person on your checkout list. Also, make sure the person who is checking out your child is listed in Aspire with a GREEN arrow indicating they are allowed to check out your student. If you are unsure how to navigate Aspire, contact our office staff (801)499-5180.

BMX Assembly

We are super excited to have the Stunt Masters BMX team at Bridge on May 6th for an outdoor assembly!

4th Grade Field Trip

Our 4th graders went on a field trip to Red Butte Gardens and the Museum of Natural History. Each class gets $500 to fund a field trip during the school year. Teachers determine if there is a field trip available that supports core instruction. Classes which do not use their field trip budget use their field trip funds to support the cost of assemblies, such as the BMX Assembly coming in May, and support our field day activities including bounce house rental and the cost of the magician.
