PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE


 

 

Janice Bukey, New Bridge School principal
NEW BRIDGE SCHOOL ~ ENSURING ALL STUDENTS ACHIEVE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE THROUGH RELEVANT LEARNING IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATH!

AUGUST 2019

Welcome back to our returning students and families, and we extend a special welcome to all our new students and families joining our New Bridge family. We are excited to get started on the 2019-20 school year and to partner with you in the education of your child.

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.

Three ways you can help do this is by ensuring your student has 95% attendance each quarter. 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 a minimum of 20-30 minutes at home each day. The research fully supports the idea that this extra reading each day helps students to meet mastery levels at each 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 of us!

Thank you for choosing Ogden, and especially, thank you for choosing New Bridge!

February 2019

To our New Bridge Family,

I hope you're enjoying this winter weather we're having and staying warm! Inside and outside the school there are lots of wonderful things happening. Teachers are providing engaging experiences for your students, and students are working hard and loving the learning.

We want to thank you for supporting your students with their Science & Engineering Fair projects. We had incredible participation and some truly exciting ideas presented. Thank you to Ms. Robinson, our STEM coach, and Mrs. Harris, our science specialist, for their organization of the event. Congratulations to our six 6th graders who qualified to advance to the next level of competition at the district.

As we look forward to the rest of this 3rd quarter, I want to bring a few things to your attention and also invite you to view the current Principal's Praises to celebrate some of our recent events. We hope parents will take advantage of this quarter's Parent STEM Workshop, where you'll design and build an engineering structure, AND it will help you with this month's home STEM challenge! (Feb 12, 10:00am)

We also want you to be aware of the Idle Free Campaign coming up this week. Help support our safety patrol as they bring awareness to being idle free during the pick-up line.

As a reminder, there is no school Feb 18-19 for students and parent/teacher conferences will be held Feb 27-28, with early out on those days and March 1. (see New Bridge calendar)

We also look forward to our Scholastic Book Fair, 6th grade New Bridge hoodies fundraiser, grandparents lunch, STEM Family days, field trips, and our CIA (interim testing) this month! Whew! This is a great place to work and learn!

Thanks for all your support and for being a partner with us in your child's education. Let's have a Fabulous February!

To our New Bridge Family,

Happy New Year to all of you! I truly hope you've had a fabulous holiday with your families. Before we left for break, we were hard at work with academics, attendance, and developing our social skills. We focused on kindness during the month of December along with ways to problem solve in our relationships with others. Teachers completed a "data dive" with our second set of interim tests and prepared to begin our next block of instruction. We now welcome you all back as we wind up our 2nd quarter and push into our 3rd quarter of learning and achievement for our Knights. We have had a full semester and are on track for achieving many of our goals for this year. I invite you to continue to support your students in their home reading, home STEM challenges, Family STEM days, and daily work. Motivating our students with highly engaging learning experiences is our priority at New Bridge while ensuring that foundational skills are mastered. As always, we recognize that our partnership with you in your child's learning is critical to their success. I want to make a special plea to have your child participate in the 2019 STEM & Science Fair, which takes the place of our monthly Family days and home STEM challenge for the month of January. Thanks so much for your continued support and efforts to make New Bridge the best school ever! I wish I could capture all the good going on each day at New Bridge to share with you, but please enjoy just a few of these highlights from the past few months.

To Our New Bridge Family,

I want to give a huge thank you to all our staff, parents, and community who have contributed to a great start to a new school year. Your commitment to our New Bridge scholars has been overwhelming, and believe me, it makes a difference! As we enter our first interim testing session, we recognize how critical each and every minute of instruction is. Our teachers are diligent in their planning and lesson delivery, and we thank our parents for making arrangements to have students at school, every day, and on time. We invite and encourage all parents to participate in parent/teacher conferences coming this week, to join our fabulous PTA, to join the quarterly Parent STEM classes being offered by our STEM coach, Shawnee Robinson, and to visit your child's class during their STEM Family Days. As partners in our students' education, together we are providing great opportunities for their success and growth! Please enjoy just a few of the highlights from the past month.
