Director's Note, February 4th: Coffee with the Directors, Smart Bench Sponsorship, Middle School Info Night and More!

We hope you’ve enjoyed the time in the rain with your children and have been able to see some of the magnificent rainbows in the area these past few days! Even though we do love these rainy days, our students and teachers are very much looking forward to the sun returning so that we can resume more outdoor activities including outdoor recess! These past few weeks have held many moments to celebrate the accomplishments of Bridges students! Mr. John, our Middle School Science teacher hosted our annual Science and Engineering Fair where our 6th-8th graders successfully presented their research to judges. A good number of these students plan to attend the County Science Fair! We also held our school wide Spelling Bee last week, wherein the classroom winners from our kindergarten through 8th grade spelling bees competed. The students put in so much effort and demonstrated confidence, poise, and teamwork. Ultimately, 8th grader Hiral Choudhary won the bee by correctly spelling the word “Pennant”. She will go on to represent Bridges Charter School on Saturday, March 2nd at the County Spelling Bee! Congratulations Hiral and to all of our students who participated. Thank you to our teachers, Ms. Rebekah and Ms. Tina along with our parent volunteers, Cassie Moungey and Leah Ingersoll for coordinating an impressive event!

Director's Note, December 14th: Hot Lunch Program, Choral Concert, Literary Magazine, and more!

For the first part of the week, I was up in San Francisco with other Charter leaders at a conference where I spent a lot of time learning more about new legislation, funding, accountability systems, and the political climate around Charter schools. A major area of discussion at the conference was around the political climate of Charter schools. As you have chosen a Public Charter school for your children, we know that you already believe in the value of Charter schools for your children. The value of Charter schools in our public school ecosystem is vast. Not only do Charter schools provide students and families with more choice, but we also serve as wayshowers for innovative teaching and learning methods and in doing so provide healthy competition for other public schools. Having our own Board of Directors also allows us the capacity to innovate and focus on underserved populations. Despite many political lobbying tactics and electoral strategies, it is important to remember that Charter schools do have bi-partisan support and we serve an important role in communities!
