    Hello Bridlemile Families!


    It's hard to believe that we are here yet again! It seems like only yesterday that we were preparing to receive our students for Hybrid instruction.  Although times have been difficult, we have shown resilience, perseverance, dedication and most of all the will to rise above adversity to do the best we can to ensure student success.  So, I am confident that we will take on any challenge that may come during this 2021-22 school year as we all continue to work together.

    As you prepare your family for the start of school, we hope that there remains excitement for students who will be starting their educational journey and for those who will continue, moving on to the next grade.  Although things are changing rapidly, we will continue to keep you abreast of any new guidance that we receive from the district. We anticipate there being adjustments that will be made throughout these first days so I ask that you all continue to be flexible and remain positive as we will all need to lean on one another this year.

    We will continue to follow guidance from OHA and PPS to ensure that students, staff and families are as safe as possible. Please be sure to follow all communication and updates as you receive them.

    Here's to another great year of teaching and learning and we look forward to seeing you all as we start this 2021-22 school year at Bridlemile Elementary!

    Bridlemile Philosophy and Core Values

    The Bridlemile philosophy supports the fact that each student has a right to develop to his/her fullest potential.  Helping each child become a participating and contributing member of the school, community, and world is our Number 1 goal.  It is our responsibility to create a nurturing, positive school climate that promotes self-confidence and positive self-esteem.  The learning environment at Bridlemile strives to meet the student's intellectual, emotional, social, 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 teachers, and the parents, we expect each child to reach his/her maximum potential by embracing our core values.

    Bridlemile core values:

    • Community - Caring about other people in a group
    • Diversity - The inclusion and celebration of all people
    • Integrity - Quality of being honest and fair
    • Kindness - A gentle nature and a desire to help others
    • Knowledge - Information, understanding or skill

    Our core program includes:

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