Principal Chat

The first week of May and the weather has been just as we expected "It MAY be warm", "It MAY be cold", "iI MAY be sunny", "It MAY be rainy".

Today we had a BMX Stunt group come to the school and perform during part of our student's advisory period. This was absolutely spectacular! Ask your kiddos about it.

Next Wednesday, May 11, is our Math in May Night, 6:00 - 7:30 pm. We will have lots of fun math games for families to play, drawings to enter and FREE dinner! See below for more information.

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!

Math in May Family Night

MARK YOUR CALENDARS - We are hosting a fun filled "Math in May" family night on May 11, 6:00 - 7:30 pm.

We will serve FREE dinner to all who attend! Dinner includes, orange chicken, rice, stir fried vegetables, fortune cookie and juice!!!

Families will have multiple stations to visit to play math games - tables with information regarding the math curriculum used at Bridge and resources for parents - and an estimation station in the foyer for a chance to win prizes by guessing how many items are in a jar. Each time a student visits a station and completes an activity they will earn a ticket for a prize drawing. Parents and guardians who attend will also receive tickets for an adult prize drawing.

StuntMaster BMX Assembly

Our kids had a terrific time at today's assembly presented by StuntMasters. They learned about parts of a bike and the spokes of good character traits such as communication, respect and encouragement.

Alphabet Count Down

One thing our 2nd graders look forward to is the Alphabet Count Down at the end of the school year. They start with A (Art - painting t-shirts using glow paint) and end with Z (Zoom home). The pics below show A (art), F (fun in the sun) and G (glow party).

How Can I Help My Kiddo This Summer?

Parents always ask WHAT can kids do over the summer to reduce the "summer slide"? We are SUPER lucky at Bridge as our Imagine Learning vendor will keep student access available until about July 30. Even our 6th graders who are leaving us for bigger pastures can still use Imagine Learning. Imagine is such a great option as it is adaptive and knows what students know and what they need to learn. If your child uses Imagine Learning just 20 - 30 minutes, 4X week over the summer, they could potentially eliminate the academic regression that occurs over the summer.

Closed Toe Shoes

Just a reminder - students cannot wear shoes with open toes (sandals, flip flops, etc.) to school - even on dress down days. Students are required to wear closed toe shoes every day to school.

Breakfast & Lunch Next School Year

Our hearts are broken to announce this.....the flyer below explains that beginning NEXT school year, breakfast and lunch are no longer automatically free for students. Instead, parents will need to complete the free/reduced meal application through Aspire. The new application will be available in July. We will notify parents when the application is available. FREE or REDUCED meals will apply to students based on parent income, homeless status, and SNAP status.

Dinner, which students receive when attending BASE, our after school program, will still be FREE for students.

Vision Screening

This year the state requires all students in grade K, 1, 3 and 5 to have their vision screened at the school. When you completed registration you provided the school permission to complete the vision screening. A few parents selected the "opt out" of vision screening option. If you selected this option your child was not screened.

Our school nurse has been completing these vision screenings. If there is a suspected "issue" with your child's long distance vision, you will receive an email from our school nurse, Vicki Ross.

Library Books

All library books are due back by May 13th. If parents have questions regarding what book their child has, they can email Mrs. Langhaim or students can check in with the librarian to determine which books are still checked out.

Last Book Fair of the Year - Buy One Get One FREE May 17 - 20

Our last book fair is BOGO!!! This is everyone's favorite book fair of the year!

May 17 - May 19 AFTER school 3:20 - 4:30 PM

May 20 Friday - 1:30 - 6:00 PM

Testing has Started

We are in the final stretch of the school year with no more breaks until Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.

End of year testing started on Monday and will continue for the next couple of weeks. End of year testing includes ESGI and KEEP (kindergarten), Imagine Learning Reading and Math (K-6), Galileo (1st - 6th), Acadience reading and math (K-6), and RISE (3rd - 6th). In between testing sessions students will continue with their regular rotations and instruction.

It is ESSENTIAL that your kids attend school, on time, well rested and well fed during testing.

The end of year progress report will be sent home the last week of June. We choose to use a progress report as it allows us to show the student's growth from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. Growth is more indicative of what a child has learned than a traditional grade of A, B or C, especially for students who are not grade level proficient in language arts or math.

Aspire will be updated at the end of the school year to include a grade based on the child's mastery of grade level content. More information about the Aspire data will be provided towards the end of the year.

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.
