Fun with Bridges

Wow it has been a long time since we've posted! Ooops! Sorry about our lack of communication. It has been busy around here. After we all came back from a hopefully restful Spring Break, we dove right back into the action. On Tuesday and Thursday of this week, every student took achievement tests. These tests help us as a school see how our curriculum is comparing with the national norms, and identify areas for improvement. To our students, it helps us see if there are any problem areas developing for any of our students. 

We are so grateful to all of our parents who sent breakfast foods, snacks, and helped clean and serve. We couldn't have done it without you! The kids were well-fed and well-rested. It did get pretty interesting when the fire alarm went off during the tests on Thursday, but the students seemed to manage well despite the distraction.

On Tuesday and Thursday after the achievement tests, middle schoolers completed service projects: writing letters of encouragement to the upper school, decorating school hallways with encouraging signs, cleaning up common areas, and more. We also had Bridges come in to run some team-building and leadership development activities. We all had a good time, and students began to work and think about their strengths and weaknesses as team players.

Report cards should go out today (Friday), and fourth quarter is now officially under way. Let's finish the year out strong!
