Bridges Academy hosts monthly parent meetings on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 6:00pm and 7:00pm. We want to make time for our parents and this is the perfect opportunity to hear school updates and meet with school administration. Each month, the school administration may include guest speakers or certain topics of discussion. Engage with us! We want to hear from you.
The School Site Council is a decision-making body made up of parents, community representatives, and school staff members. The School Site Council's primary responsibility is to oversee the funds the school receives under the School Improvement Program (SIP) act. The funds are designed to improve student performance as measured by standardized tests, the District's State & Federal Program, and classroom performance. The Council meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 5:00pm and 6:00pm. To become a part of the School Site Council, please attend the first Cafecito of the 2016-2017 school year on September 27, 2016. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm.
Helping in the classroom or around the school is a great way to stay involved and support our Bridges Academy community. To volunteer in the classroom, please contact your student's teacher so a schedule can be arranged. The teacher will need to add your name in the volunteer log so your visit will be expected by the front office. To volunteer around the school, please contact the front office. Here are just a few ideas of the kind of roles we need on a regular basis:
1. Parking Lot Supervision
2. Field Trip Chaperones
3. School Event Volunteers (i.e. Annual Band and Show Choir Concert, College & Career Day)
