Final Director's Note of 2017/2018, June 4th: Wrapping up the year, Looking to Next Year, Parent Appreciation, and more!

Wow! We have almost made it through the school year. As we reach the end of the year, we want to thank you for entrusting us with your children's learning and well being through the year. I speak for all of the teachers and staff when I say that we have been humbled by the opportunity to be with your children every day that they are here; they are each so beautifully unique. They allow us the opportunity to learn more about ourselves, to be in a profession that brings us joy, and to make differences every day. As we move into this last week, I want to acknowledge each of you for being such an instrumental part of this wonderful community that we call Bridges. The end of a school year naturally brings us to a point where we have to say goodbye. A few of our teachers will be leaving town, our incredible 8th graders will be heading off to high school, and some of our families will be moving in different directions too. We will miss you all, and it has been an honor experiencing this slice of time with you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart too, for being so supportive through my first year as Director. I am looking forward to returning in August on an even stronger foundation, and leading us even more closely toward the mission and vision of our school.

Director's Note, May 21st: Tech Trek Scholarships Awarded, Spirit Day Tomorrow, Middle School Band Performance, and more!

Greetings, Bridges Families! We are finding it difficult to believe there are just 13 days of school left! As we race toward the end of the year, many classes still have exciting field trips planned and big projects that are wrapping up. Today the middle school students stood on stage and gave speeches about their "truths" as an end of year class project in ELA, the 5th graders are just returning back to school from their adventures in Dana Point, our 4th graders are gearing up for their field trip to re-enact the California Gold Rush as they read about in "By the Great Horn Spoon", our first graders are off riding the metro to experience the diverse cultures that are at our fingertips in downtown LA, and many of our 8th graders will be heading out tonight on a red-eye to Washington DC. We still have so much excitement packed into these final few weeks of school for ALL of our students! Our attendance today in K-5 is low at 92%. We are hoping to rebound from this tomorrow so that we continue to finish out the year well above 95%! So long as your children are healthy, please be sure to get them to school on time.
