2015-16 District Calendar
If your student(s) will not be returning to BPE or continuing on to HCMS, please notify Lisa Thomas by May 27, 2016 at email@example.com with the student(s) name and school they will be attending.
Saturday morning the entire Bridge Point staff gathers for our closing staff meeting. It marks the beginning of summer break. During this time we close a school year, recognize accomplishments and continue preparation for next year. Significantly we use this time to say farewell to Bridge Point staff who will be moving on to other schools or transfer to other stages in their lives. This last meeting will be particularly tough.
Shelly Dennington, Behavior Support Teacher, Ann Root, 5th Grade teacher, Linda Rose, PE Teacher and I are retiring. They do not want me to tell you how many years we have served students in public education (close to 125 total), but each of us has been a part of our Bridge Point for each day it has been a school. We worked together with many lifelong friends to create a school out of a shiny building and establish a high standard of commitment and service to students and families. Nina Revering, also a founding Bridge Pointer but MUCH too young to retire, has resigned to pursue more fully multiple opportunities in the music and choral direction world. My dear friend, trusted colleague and brilliant partner, Dr. Shannon Lynch is also resigning as Assistant Principal. Into the private world she goes. Joining her out there will be Kristina Carmona and Debbie Higgins, teacher assistants.
Thanks to all of you who prepared your children each day to be ready to
learn. We had an especially great year
and that results from a mighty parent and school connection which melds in a
wholesome and purposeful community we are all proud to be part of. Again, huge thanks to our Booster Club and
co-presidents Stephanie Krpec and Heather McElhaney. Best EEF season ever for BPE because of Jenny
Aghamalian and Shannon Dawson. Think
Bobcat Welcome, BPE Family Picnic, FOBP, Golf, Arts Days, Science Day, Bingo,
Bobcat Fest and more. Oh my gosh, what
smarts, effort and good hearts have been applied to create a rich elementary
school experience for our students.
This summer pay attention to the Bridge Point website. Back-to-school dates are established but these big four…Class Posting on August 17, Kindergarten Back to School on August 18, Bobcat Welcome on August 19 and FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL on August 22…are musts for your calendar.
Now it is time to go. As
you read this, interviews for my successor are complete and Dr. Leonard is
finalizing his recommendation to the board.
With the counsel of nine students, 10 teachers, 10 parents and district
leadership, he will select a great leader for this very special school. He or she will be a person who recognizes and
respects what Bridge Point is and will elevate it higher. The new principal will be announced June 7th. I implore your open minds, welcoming nature,
assumption of “good intent” and benefit of the doubt for the new Bridge Point
principal. Never, ever say or think…or
tolerate those with you who say or think….”This isn’t how Brad would do
it”. Be who you are; fair, encouraging,
giving and understanding. That is what I
received from you over these sweet 19 years.
My wife, Lou Dove, and I now open a new chapter. You hope your life’s work is something that contributes, fulfills and is important. For me it has been all that and to me it has been a true blessing from God. Thank you, dear friends. I can’t wait for the time our paths cross again.
