Bridge Point Elementary



Dear BPE Families,


Week three has been exceptional. At this point it seems that most of us have adjusted the earlier start time. Thank you so much for getting your children to school on time each day. I'm happy to report that bus routes have been finalized and carpool is running much quicker in the afternoon. Morning assembly is in full swing. This week we added the Friday patriotic song, PE Leader of the Pack, and the Life Skills recognition. When students are recognized for showing respect during the month of September, they will put a Bobcat head on the Wirht Wall of Fame located in the main hall by library.


SMART TAG UPDATE:  Parents please continue to call the front office to make dismissal changes. The Smart Tag app will not be ready for parents to use for dismissal changes on September 11th. We will keep you updated and send out communication as soon as all the bugs are fixed and everything is up and ready.


Have a wonderful weekend.


Heather Meek


Approval will lower District's total tax rate by 1.25 cents and increase amount of local tax revenue that stays in the community

We are excited to officially kick off the program this year, which will streamline services including transportation and cafeteria meal transactions as well as coordinate campus dismissal preferences electronically with parents of elementary students.


Counselors' Corner

This week we introduced our first Life Skill of the year: Respect! Ten brave fifth grade leaders presented during assembly;  they explained how to earn a Respect Bobcat Head cutout and what it means to show respect. Teachers began passing out Bobcat Heads to recognize students demonstrating respectful behavior. Students will continue to focus on showing Respect throughout the month of September.

This week we also began our counselor led SEL lessons in kindergarten and second grade classrooms. We read the book One, by Kathryn Otoshi, which facilitated discussion on respect and how to stand up for oneself and others. Please visit our Bridge Point SEL website at to see when we will be visiting your child's classroom!
