  • Dear Bridlemile Community,

     

    The staff at Bridlemile Elementary School warmly welcomes you and your family to the 2016-2017 school year.  The Bridlemile philosophy supports the value that each student has a right to develop to their fullest potential.  Helping each child become a participating and contributing member of the school, the community and the world is our number one goal.  It is our responsibility to create a positive and nurturing school climate that promotes a sense of well-being, self-confidence and individual and collective awareness that connects students to our learning community.  The learning environment at Bridlemile strives to meet each student’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth patterns using high academic and behavioral expectations coupled with a sensitivity to each child’s unique needs and learning style.  Through cooperative support of the staff, the teacher and the parents, we expect each child to reach their maximum potential by:

     

    -                      Learning problem-solving skills in a positive, enriching setting

    -                      Working cooperatively to develop academically, socially, and emotionally

    -                      Becoming challenged through a curriculum that developmentally meets the needs of our students

    -                      Motivating and inspiring students to become life-long learners

    -                      Appreciating cultural diversities and respecting individual differences

    -                      Becoming contributing members of immediate and global communities

    -                      Becoming self-aware, empathetic and responsible

    -                      Developing and understanding feelings and being able to express them freely, respectfully and confidently

     

    Our core program includes:

    -                      Music with a Music Specialist each week plus an optional band program for fifth graders and a strings program for third, fourth and fifth graders

    -                      Music programs for K/1, 2/3, 4/5, and Band/Strings

    -                      Library with a Media Specialist once a week

    -                      Technology with a Technology Teacher 50 minutes a week

    -                      Physical Education with a PE Specialist at least one time per week

    -                      Art with classroom teachers and professional artists through the Artist in Residency Program

    -                      Mandarin/Chinese language and culture with a Mandarin teacher one time per week

     

    On behalf of the staff at Bridlemile, we look forward to partnering with you to make this an excellent school year for our students.  Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our school.

     

    Sincerely,

    Brad Pearson

    This was a difficult decision. We know that school closures impact families in many ways, disrupting work schedules, childcare, in addition to classroom instruction for the nearly 49,000 students we serve.

      Facilities staff have been clearing parking lots and pathways, like here at West Sylvan.

    We continue to work to get schools ready to open tomorrow. Ice is our biggest barrier and concern, and the safety of students and staff is our priority.

    The vast majority of our schools have been cleared of snow yet, there are still a significant number that have walkways and other paths covered in ice, which we are working to clear today.

    We want to update you on the status of our work to prepare our schools for the safe return of staff and students. Since Wednesday, our dedicated custodians and maintenance staff have been working very long hours to clear pathways, manage building power, plumbing and heat to ensure all of our utilities are operational given the freezing conditions that can impact pipes and electricity.
