Bridge's Week at a Glance, April 27 - May 1

Week at a Glance: April 27th – May 1st, 2020

Thank you so much for your continued support of your child’s learning at home. We know that this can be very challenging for families and we appreciate that every family situation is different in terms of their availability to work directly with their child(ren) to assist them with their assignments and learning activities. We are working to provide fun and interesting opportunities for our students.   In so doing, we are continuing to make the physical and emotional well-being of our students and their families our first priority. Therefore, we hope that the amount of work provided is manageable and not creating too much stress and/or too great a burden for you to support your child’s learning.




Welcome to Week #4 of “At-Home” Learning

Many classes have tried or will be Videoconferencing through the Zoom app with their students this week. We hope your child(ren) enjoy the chance to see their teacher and classmates using this technology.

Happy May – let’s hope for some great May weather to make the flowers bloom and cross our fingers for some positive news regarding a return to more normal life in our beautiful province. 

And speaking of good news, we have some very exciting news for our community… 

1) New Playground At Bridge To Be Built Next Year:

At the School District Board meeting on April 22nd, the construction of a $125,000 brand new universally accessible playground at Bridge was approved - to be completed by May 2021!

Our PAC has worked hard to fundraise over many years and has set aside about $25,000 or so to enhance the Provincial and District funding for $125,000. This means we have total of at least $150,000 or more so far to build what will certainly be a universally accessible and state of the art new playground at Bridge. 

Stay tuned for info on the planning process, which will include input from all stakeholders. We are looking forward to unveiling an awesome new playground with you at some point in 2020-2021!

2) No plans to close McRoberts or change the neighbourhood catchment areas:

We have received news from the District that the School Board will not be pursuing significant changes to School facilities in Richmond. Specifically, there are no plans to consolidate Secondary schools in this region and no plans to close McRoberts Secondary school.

Yahoo! … In these trying times, we can all use a little good news to lift our spirits – and so we hope this information has brightened your day. Let’s hope this is the beginning of more good things to come.

Have a wonderful weekend and an awesome few days of learning next week. Stay safe and stay connected.
