Literacy Week – From Jan 28th – 31st we are encouraging, promoting and celebrating Reading and our love of books at school and at home. At Bridge, we will be exploring Reading in different ways in our classrooms and throughout the school.

Parents – you are invited to send any photos you may have of your children reading at home with you and/or their siblings next week to our Teacher Librarian, Ms. Sugiarto, at She will be creating an exciting display board showing some of the Bulldogs enjoying their favourite books during Literacy Week.

Mid-Year Summary Reports – Teachers who are part of the Student Reporting Policy Pilot will be sending home a Mid-Year Summary of Learning with each student on Friday, January 31st. One part of the pilot project is the use of e-portfolios to communicate student learning. Please ensure that you are able to log-in to your child’s e-portfolio (either as a student or as a parent) to see snapshots of your child’s learning as well as additional assessment information. If you have difficulty logging in, please see your child’s teacher for a new invitation with a password.

Sun Run 2020 Information – Sunday, April 19th, 2020

We have already begun training for the Vancouver Sun Run, happening
on Sunday, April 19th, 2020 and we are hoping to have as many students as possible join the Bridge team. Practices for students in Grades 5-7, will take place at lunch on Tuesdays and Fridays, and at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday mornings. Please meet at the gym for lunch practices and outside of the front office for morning practices. Please note: the race is not a school field trip, so parents and guardians are ultimately responsible for their own children on race day. Bridge staff will not be providing supervision or transportation on the day of the race.

Students from K to 4: If you would like your child to run the race, you are welcome to sign them up for the 2.5 KM run under the “Bridge Bulldogs” youth team. Unfortunately, we cannot train with these students due to supervision restrictions, but they can train with a parent/guardian and be supervised by a parent/guardian on the day of the race.

Select “Join an existing team” and follow the directions from there. Our team name is “Bridge Bulldogs”. Your Sun Run T-Shirt and bib will be delivered to the school and given to your child before race day.

The early bird registration fee (until February 7th) is $22 for youth and $35 for adults. After February 7th, the fees become $32 for youth, and $40 for adults. Registration closes on March 13th, 2020. If you are accompanying a child in the 2.5 KM race, you can register for free but will not receive a shirt.
