Principal Message

I want to thank everyone for making my first days as a principal so special. I have really felt lifted up by our community. I want to share some information that may answer some of your wonderings.

Bridger has 536 students this year to date. We have 22 K-8 classes, with the average class size of 24 students. Our smallest class has 18 students and our largest class has 37 students. We are in the process of hiring two Educational Assistants for two of the largest classes. Our student population is 39% White, 38% Latino, 9% Multi, 7% Asian, 5% Black, 2% Pacific Islander and 1% Native American.

Our new Kindergarten teacher Brenda Morales-Galicia went on maternity leave earlier than planned and Rigler School kindly loaned us a Dual Language Certified Teacher to teach until our planned Dual Language Certified Teacher arrived. We want to welcome Silvia Rendon Navas, she will be our guest K teacher until January 2nd when Brenda Morales-Galicia returns.

We are in the process of getting a 2-classroom portable sometime this Winter. I will share more details as they are finalized.

Our arrival/dismissal times are different from last year:

8:15-8:40am Breakfast- To maximize instruction time, we ask that you eat breakfast during this time in the cafeteria, not the classroom. ALL STUDENTS MAY EAT BREAKFAST FREE OF CHARGE, they do not need to know their ID number.

8:40am Arrival

8:45am Start of School Day

8:55am Tardy

3:00pm K-5 Dismissal, bus students go to the library to wait until bus arrives at 3:10pm.

3:15pm 6-8 Dismissal

3:20pm Bus leaves


I am looking forward to meeting more of our community at Back to School Night on September 28th from 6-7:30pm.

Me gustaria darles las gracias a todos por hacer mis primeros dias como directora tan especial. Me he sentido realmente animada por nuestra comunidad. Me gustaria compartir alguna informacion que quizas conteste algunas de sus preguntas. Bridger tiene 536 estudiantes en este momento. Tenemos 22 salones de classes para grados de K-8, con cada salon teniendo un promedio de 24 estudiantes. Nuestro salon mas pequeño consiste de 18 estudiantes, y el mas grande consiste de 37 estudiantes. Estamos en proceso de contratar a dos asistentes educativos para dos de los salones mas grandes. Nuestra poblacion estudiantil es 39% Blanca, 38% Latina, 9% Multi, 7% Asiatica, 5% Morena, 2% Isleños del pacifico y 1% Nativo Americano.

Nuestra nueva maestra de kinder immersion tomo su licensia de maternidad mas pronto de lo esperado, la escuela Rigler amablemente nos presto una maestra certificada para enseñar en los programas de lenguage dual hasta que nuestra maestra temporal pudiera llegar. Nos gustaria darle la bienvenida a Silvia Rendon Navas, ella sera nuestra maestra temporal hasta que regrese Brenda Morales-Galicia.

Estamos en el proceso de adquirir un portable de dos cuartos para este invierno. Compartire mas detalles en cuanto se han finalizados.

Nuestros tiempos de Llegada/Despedida han cambiado desde el año pasado:

8:15am Desayuno- Para maximar el tiempo instruccional, pedimos que coman el desayuno durante este tiempo en la cafeteria, no en el salon de clases. TODOS LOS ESTUDIANTES PUEDEN COMER DESAYUNO SIN CARGO, no necesitan saber su numero ID

8:40am Llegada

8:45am Empieza el dia escolar

8:55am Campana Tardia

3:00pm Despedida de K-5, estudiantes que toman el camion van a la biblioteca a esperar hasta que llegue el camion a las 3:10pm

3:15pm Despedida de 6-8

3:20pm El camion se va


Anhelo conocer a mas de nuestra comunidad en la Noche de Regreso a Clases el 28 de Septiembre de 6-7:30pm.
