        If you loved the cookie dough offers last year, the PTO will be offering the same merchandise this year for their fall fund raiser.  The PTO is helping fund field trips for our students to extend their learning outside the classroom.  They will also need volunteers to help distribute the food.  Check out the PTO Facebook page for more information. 

                Thank you for getting your children to school on time.  Attendance is critical to a child’s success at school.  Bridgeway is being honored at the Board meeting on Thursday, October 9, for our great attendance record. 

                Congratulations to our newly elected school site council members, Liliya Tovmassian and Lisa Vang.  They will be serving as school site council members from 2014-2016.

Bee Active!

Encouraging students to walk or bike to school.Ms. Van der Hiede's 1st period class scanned in a total of 96 times during October. We had 9 scan days.
Statistics for October
227 students scanned in 1158 times during the month. That's a little over 5 scans per student for the month. Together we walked and biked over 1624 miles.
Did you know that "one-way" miles count?
Did you know that you can make your miles count even if you just walk to school in the morning or walk home from school? Scan in before school starts at the Bee Active! table by the office, or look for someone by the back gate to scan you in. Not sure if you are registered? We can check.
Scan Days are Tuesdays and Thursdays this Year.
Where is everybody?
We have over 500 students and staff members that are registered for our program, but only 244 have actually scanned in this school year.
Tip of the Month
Wear your helmet! A bicycle helmet reduces the risk of serious head and brain injury by 85-88%. In California, children under 18 years of age must wear an approved helmet when riding bikes, scooters, skateboards or inline skates. It's the law! 

Trophy Winners for October

Attendance Procedure

Effective January 7, 2012, when your student is absent you will have up to 72 hours after your child has been absent to verify/clear your student’s absences (via note, email- slee@wusd.k12.ca.us, phone call to school, or submit a doctor’s note).  If absences are not verified within the 72 hours, the absent/absences will be considered unexcused.  Note: Once our attendance month accounting cycle closes due to non-verification we cannot overwrite or change that absent/absences.
