    New Kindergarten Families: PTA Communications- Stay Connected!  

    Bridlemile school has a program called 'Peace Pals' where older students are paired with our younger Beagles and serve as role models, mentors, and partners in activities in the classrooms. The 'Peace Pals' program has been so successful for our students that our PTA would like to provide a similar opportunity for our new Bridlemile parents!  The PTA would love to connect your family with some of our existing families to help foster relationships and connections. 

    In addition, our PTA and parent welcome committee would love to connect with you and also keep you posted on upcoming summer events.
     
     
    a. if you would like to be included in a PTA beagle buddies program to be connected with a mentor family.
     
    b. if you want to opt in to receive email communication from our pta and parent welcome committee regarding upcoming kindergarten summer events.
