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.

Hello Bridges Charter School,

Our book fair is off to a great start! It has so far been packed with students during recesses, and students are getting the opportunity to browse with their classes, too. With every purchase you make, 65% of every dollar spent goes straight back into our library. You can also make purchases for your teachers' classroom library, and you have the opportunity, too, to make purchases for our new teachers joining us next year to help stock their classroom libraries!

The book fair will be open during Open House for you to browse too.

Director's Note, April 16th:

Good afternoon Bridges Charter Families!

We are quickly closing in on our biggest school fundraiser of the year! We are so proud of all of the parents, students, and teachers for making some groundbreaking leaps in the amount of money you have raised for our school for our upcoming Fun Run and After Party! In addition to getting some fun community-based exercise in the Fun Run, did you know that your students will have the opportunity to soak their teachers in the balloon drop? Your student will need to purchase tickets to join in the teacher-soaking fun! Tickets are for purchase before the event by texting "bridgesfunrun" to 71777. If we reach our community goal of $15,000 before Friday, PAC will donate a ticket to every student, so keep those donations coming!

Director's Note, April 3rd: Join us for Goal Setting Workshop, County Science Fair Winners, Women in History Recap, and More!

Welcome back to school, Bridges Families!

We hope you enjoyed a relaxing break together. It's exciting to hear all the stories that the students are bringing back from their time away from school. As we start this week, we have just 10 more weeks of school, and there is still so much learning left to do! Attending school every day is important for the internalization of the skills and concepts your child is learning in their classrooms. So long as your child is healthy, please make a concerted effort to attend school. Every day matters in the learning process!

We are coming off of an amazing weekend that showcased our students, parents, and community in ways that made us proud as they put on a production of James and the Giant Peach, Jr. They have been working so hard on this for the past 5 months. Kudos to Ms. Noreen, our Performing Arts Teacher and Musical Director, Ms. Deb, our Performing Arts Parent Committee Leader, all the other parents who put forward their collective efforts to making the show and event spectacular, and especially a big-high five to all of our 3rd-8th grade students who were involved either on the crew or up on stage in the show this weekend! You all were spectacular!
