Director's Note, May 20th: Parent Education Nights, Fundraising Updates, Bridging Ceremony, Parent Survey Results and More!
There are just 13 days of school left with so much good stuff to come in these final weeks. If you haven’t yet made plans for your children for June, why not try out our new Lego Robotics summer camp open to students in grades 2-8? The first week of the camp starts June 10th. We only have one or two spots open in each week, so if you’re on the fence about registration, do it soon! Registration is open here: https://www.parentsquare.com/feeds/1493383

And once again we are flying into the end of the school year with just three and a half weeks to go! There are so many opportunities for you and your children in these coming weeks, you won’t want to miss out. Here are just a few of our school-wide events, but make sure you are checking your class parent square page for more grade-level specific End-of-Year celebrations!
Hello Bridges Family! And Happy Earth Day! 🌎 Spring is in the air, our poppies are blooming, and it seems that everyone is returning after spring break with positive energy to complete the school year. Spring is a busy time for us at Bridges with State Testing, Overnight Field Trips that include visits to Catalina, Dana Point, Yosemite, Washington DC, and Astro Camp, preparations for Bridging Ceremony, and lots of planning for next year. Read on for some re-caps and for more information on upcoming events! 🏕️

Directors Note, April 1st: Bridges Board Resolutions for AB1505-1508, New Coffee Chat Time, Spring Carnival, and More!
I hope you were able to catch one of the fantastic performances of Aladdin Jr. over the weekend that was sponsored by our Performing Arts Parent Committee and that featured performances by more than 60 Bridges students. It was a spectacular show that was professionally executed with amazing costumes, sets, choreography, songs, and performances. Well done to all the parents and students involved!
It's hard to believe how close we are to the end of the school year. At this time of year, we start an inventory of teachers who are moving or transitioning for other reasons in order to determine how many positions we will need to fill for next school year. We have such a solid team of teachers who are very invested in Bridges' philosophies and who care deeply about your children and your families. I am pleased to let you know that we only have one teacher choosing to transition after the 2018/2019 school year. Unfortunately, the teacher who is leaving has a long tenure at Bridges and will leave a hole in many of our hearts. Our beloved Ms. Tori has made the decision to move in with her fiancé in Palmdale following this school year.
