Director's Note, January 29th: 6th Grade for a Day, Middle School Science Fair, Intent to Re-Enroll, and More!

This is an exciting time to be a part of our community. We are finishing out the month of January, and as we do so many of our upper grade classes are preparing for extended field trips. These field trips are ones that the teachers consciously integrate into their curriculum so that student learning is extended into the field and out of the classroom. Field trips are an integral part of our curriculum from grades K-8; the opportunity to engage in so many field experiences outside of the classroom is just one more thing that makes Bridges Charter School unique.

Our 4th Graders, for example, are planning a trip to The Ocean Institute where they will have the opportunity to relive the Gold Rush and experience what it would have been like to be living in The Great Horn Spoon, a novel they have read. The 7th graders are preparing for an overnight adventure to Catalina Island. Our 5th graders are also preparing for an overnight excursion in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, and the 8th graders are beginning preparations for their landmark trip to Washington DC.

Director's Note: January 22nd

We have a lot to share with you; the big event from last week was our school-wide assembly on Bullying Prevention. The actors were funny and engaging -- be sure to ask your child what they learned about their role in stopping bullying and what they can do to help prevent it! We are always conscious of building respectful and empathetic young citizens who will be voices of compassion in our world!

Welcome back from the long weekend! We hope you enjoyed some time outdoors in the warm weather and some extra quality time together. In honor of Martin Luther King day, students at Bridges have been talking in their classrooms about his messages, life, and vision that still resonate so deeply with us today.
