Director's Note, March 18th: Programmatic Audit, CCSA Conference Early Release, Musical, and More!

Finally, some sunshine! I hope you were able to join us on Friday for our annual Bridges Fun Run which is far more than just a fundraiser. Our community came together to cheer each other on and to celebrate fitness, health, togetherness, and our wellbeing! Typically we end the day with an After Party, but unfortunately, due to the high winds, our vendors could not setup the bounce houses and other activities, so we have rescheduled the After Party/Spring Carnival to Friday, April 12th.

Director's Note, March 4: Social Media Alerts, Whole Learner Symposium, Coffee Chat with the Directors, and More!

One of the very unique aspects of Bridges is the experiential learning that students have the opportunity to engage in. As a school, we are always looking for ways that we can expand student learning outside of the classroom. Our overnight field trips start in 4th grade, and one of the most monumental overnight trips our students take in their time at Bridges is to Yosemite. Our 6th graders are just returning from their weeklong excursion to Yosemite where they had the unique opportunity this year to experience team building activities and other adventure in the snow! Welcome back to Mr. John, Coach Lindsay, Ms. Maria and our 6th grade explorers!Another small group of Bridges students competed against students from LA, Santa Barbara, and Ventura County in the Regional Odyssey of the Minds tournament over the weekend and earned 2nd place in the competition! These students along with their coach, Erin Morrissey, are heading to the state competition at UC Riverside. Congratulations to these thought leaders from Bridges Charter School! 8th grade student, Hiral Choudhary, also represented Bridges Charter School at the County Spelling Bee over the weekend at California Lutheran University!Please congratulate these students when you see them next!

Director's Note, February 19th: 2019-2020 School Calendar, Crazy Hair Day, Class Photos, and More!

Welcome back from the long weekend! With this chilly and rainy weather it seems that there are so many different illnesses going around. Please remember, though, if your child is not sick, they are expected to be at school and on time. Family vacations and day trips are unexcused absences and need to be scheduled on non-school days. Missing school can have a significant impact on a students’ academic and social development.

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!
