Directors Note, April 1st: Bridges Board Resolutions for AB1505-1508, New Coffee Chat Time, Spring Carnival, and More!

Bridges Board Resolutions for Assembly Bills 1505-1508
State legislatures are currently considering voting on bills that have the potential to significantly impact the operation and existence of Charter Schools. The state Education Committee will be voting on these proposed bills in April and May. Last week, the Bridges board voted to adopt resolutions about these proposed Assembly Bills. If you want to be a part of these conversations, please read the attached documents.

Membership in Charter Nation
Bridges families have the option to join Charter Nation where you will receive communications welcoming you into the California charter school community. This is an organization that is operated by the California Charter School Advocates whose mission is to increase the involvement of the charter school community in the public policy arena, to create a pipeline of charter school supporters and activists, to elect public officials who support California charter schools, and to grow the political influence of the California charter school movement. More information about how to opt-out if you wish not to be a member will be forthcoming.

Coffee with the Directors TOMORROW at a NEW TIME! Meet with us from 1:30-2:30!
Get in the scoop with the inner workings of our school, hear about new directions we are heading, and take opportunities share your concerns and ideas for the future development of our school! Tomorrow we will be talking about our authorization process, looking at student achievement data, and sharing some input from our Charter Renewal Committee. Join us for an informal, yet informative dialogue!

Spring Carnival April 12th 12:30-5pm
Don’t forget about our Spring Carnival that is just around the corner! Our Spring Carnival is the second part of our Fun Run Fundraiser. We will have games, prizes, bounce houses, a cake walk, a balloon drop, and so much more. Kindergarteners will be able to attend from 12:30 onward, and all other grades can join at 1:30. Parents are responsible for supervising their children. Remember, donations that we receive for fundraising during the Spring Carnival are being matched by our anonymous donor!
