      Thank you for supporting our PTO’s annual cookie dough fund raising event.  The PTO earned approximately $12,000 and has offered $1000 to each grade level for use towards field trips or school supplies for our students.  Special thanks to Mrs. Jeanette Ali for coordinating this successful fund raiser and for all the volunteers who helped distribute the ordered merchandise. 

Our annual holiday craft fair is on Wednesday, December 3, from 5:30-6:30 p.m.  Come and enjoy an evening making holiday decorations with your student.

If your child loved the movie Frozen, this year’s winter musical extravaganza will delight your family.  Our Frozen Musical Program is on Tuesday, December 16, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria.  This wonderful program will highlight the talents of our Bridgeway students. 

Our 3rd-8th grade students competed in our site’s spelling bee.  The final spelling bee contest will be on Tuesday, December 9, at 1:15.  The top three students from the each contest will move on to compete in the finals.

One of the school’s core values is providing students with opportunities to give back to the community.  Our leadership students had a successful Hug a Bear drive collecting bears for the patients at Shriners hospital.  They collected over 426 bears for holiday distribution.  Thank you for supporting our leadership students’ community service project.

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!
