Hello Families,

We had a terrific first week of school!  Our brilliant students figured out how to livestream their classes (no easy task) and it was really nice to have kids in the building again.

AFTER SCHOOL

We are beginning our after school program next week with Strength and Conditioning Club starting on Monday from right after school until 2:15.

We are also hosting a Computer Club for parents; if you are interested in learning about Google and all of its wonderful apps, join us on Tuesday nights from 6:00 to 7:00 here at Bridge Academy.  Participating parents are given a free google chromebook in order to do the class and to keep afterwards. Please respond to this email if you are interested and I will give you further details!

We are also offering free swim lessons at the Cardinal Shehan Center on Saturdays from 11:00 to 11:30 and from 11:30 to 12:00 beginning later this month.  If you, your child or a relative are interested in participating in this six week program, please let me know!

We will send you a complete list of After School offerings as soon as they are all up and running.

FREE FOOD

If your child is a FULL DISTANCE LEARNER, please fill out this survey: https://forms.gle/EajCbFDUiiUoiMYz6

If your child comes to in-person school, please encourage them to take the free meals we offer at the end of each day. This food is intended to make up for the food students are not receiving in school; your tax dollars pay for it so please take advantage of it!

We are holding another online information session for families next Wednesday, September 16.

The MIDDLE SCHOOL meeting is from 5:30 until 6:30.  You can join the Google Meet by clicking on this link next Wednesday at 5:30: https://meet.google.com/jft-rvxy-kyh?hs=122&authuser=0
