Happy Thanksgiving!

To our Amazing Bridges Family: As we take a moment to reflect on all of our blessings this year, our Bridges students and families are at the top of our list. The Bridges community is unlike any other, and no matter what or how you give to our school, we are so blessed to have you in our circle of people and to work aside your sparkling, inquisitive, and generous children every day...

Director's Note, November 20th: History Bee, Family Math Night, Makerspace, and so much more!

It seems impossible that Thanksgiving Break is right around the corner. To honor the month of November, students have been engaging in activities and conversations around the theme of gratitude. Ms. Alanna’s 3rd grade class and Ms. Marsi’s 1st grade class led the school assembly this month by sharing a traditional Native American Thanksgiving Address. Students in all grades have also been co-constructing a gratitude tree that you can view in our front office. This is an incredibly busy time of year at Bridges, and we are grateful to be sharing it with you and your incredible children!  We have recently announced dates and times for tours and orientations for families new to Bridges for the 2020-2021 school year.

Director's Note, November 6th: Important November Events, Report Cards, Healthy Kids Survey Data, and more!

Though we are on minimum days for conferences this week, we are grateful to be back after the extraordinary circumstances last week with the local fires. Thank you to everyone who offered help to displaced families, and we extend a special thanks to first responders and their spouses in our community who made many sacrifices last week to keep our precious homes, families, and pets safe. We so appreciate you!

SCHOOL CLOSING, THURSDAY OCTOBER 31ST

Bridges Community -- We hope that you are all staying safe and have not felt the impact of the fires too significantly. Because of continued air quality concerns, local fires, and mandatory local evacuations, we have made the decision to close school on Thursday, October 31st. Please remember that we have a staff development day scheduled on November 1st, so we will not see students back at school until Monday, November 4th. For those in our community who are first responders, or who have significant others who are first responders, please know that we are so grateful for the sacrifices you are making, and we continue to send our support and love. Updates will be made regularly as more information becomes available. -- Dr. Kelly and Ms. Cindy
