An Update From Principal Melissa Rohr

Hello Families!


We are so excited that we have already reached the second semester of school! Last week you should have received your child's report card. Please let us know if you had any trouble reviewing it online.


Report cards are a great time to visit with your student about the progress they are making in their classroom. They are also a great time to reach out and communicate any concerns or questions you may have with the teacher. Also a great way to track your student's progress is by looking at their iReady work. Every student knows how to access their iReady on their district Chromebook. Next month we will have teacher conferences as well to check in one more time before the year comes to a close. Please be sure that you sign up!

FREE therapy available to all Bremerton School District students and staff

The mental health of our students is a top priority. That’s why we’re offering a free new service: Gaggle Teletherapy.


If your student is feeling sad, hopeless, angry, or anxious—or having challenges with family, friends, or relationships—therapy could help.


Gaggle Therapy is a free, confidential option to connect weekly with a therapist online and on your student’s schedule. Students can be referred by a teacher, counselor or parent, and students age 13 and older can self-refer.


Getting started is easy and only takes a few minutes. Learn more or sign-up your student here.
