NEW BRIDGE SCHOOL ~ ENSURING ALL STUDENTS ACHIEVE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE THROUGH RELEVANT LEARNING IN LITERACY BASED SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATH!
Welcome back New Bridge students and families! We are excited to get started on the 2021-22 school year and to partner with you in the education of your child. The theme we've chosen for this year to inspire our progress is "Knights Rising Higher." We will expect the best of ourselves and you so that our children receive the rich educational experiences they deserve!
Registration is open now, and we ask all returning and new students to complete this year's registration and permissions online as soon as possible. Please update any new address or contact information, including emergency contacts. Included this year in registration is the Utah Household Free & Reduced School Lunch application. We are asking that every family complete one of these. For the 2021-22 school year, funding has been made available to again provide free breakfast & lunch for all of our students. The lunch applications will help determine needs for the future. The form may be completed as part of the online registration or on a hard copy and turned into the office.
We are in the process of getting students placed into classes. Teachers will begin reaching out to you to schedule a back to school conference a few weeks before school starts. Our first day for 1st-6th grade is August 20, and for kindergarten it is August 27. Please be aware of the new 2021-22 bell schedule: Breakfast 7:45, Class Begins 8:00, Dismissal Monday-Thursday 2:45, Dismissal Friday 12:30.
You can expect to receive a letter from the school with more back to school information the first week of August.
We invite you to celebrate coming back to school with us at our "New Bridge Block Party" on August 18, 5:30-8:00. It will be held on our playground and will include bounce houses, an obstacle course, games and a climbing wall! The event is free to our school community. For families who need it, we will have a limited supply of gently used and new uniforms available for sale at your back to school appointment or block party, along with school t-shirts and hoodies. And of course, there will be food for purchase, so please save the date and bring your family to our Block Party, Wednesday, August 18!
As a reminder, each day our students stand and give the New Bridge pledge, which is:
I am a New Bridge Noble Knight. Today I pledge to be a respectful, responsible and safe learner. I will be an example of scholarship, leadership & moral excellence!
We will do all we can as a staff to help our Knights develop skills that will lead them to this daily end goal. We invite our parents to do the same. By committing ourselves to helping them become the best they can be, we will see them accomplish amazing things.
Here are three ways you can help us partner with you. First, help your student have excellent attendance. Being on time and present for their daily "job" is a life skill that will serve them well in the future. We also ask that you support us in our literacy efforts by ensuring every child reads on their level a minimum of 20-30 minutes at home each day. This extra reading each day helps students master their grade level in reading, which is so critical to their likelihood of graduating from high school and being college or career ready. Finally, we invite you to work with your child on helping others feel included, respected, and accepted at school. Being kind to others is a foundational skill that makes life so much more rewarding for all!
Thank you for choosing Ogden, and especially, thank you for choosing New Bridge!
