Director's Notes 2-25-15

February 25, 2015 Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. — Albert Camus Thank You and Appreciations Thank you to the extraordinary Ms. Boni our outstanding CORE Science Teacher.  Her love of learning and teaching has inspired her to lead our middle school students on two extraordinary journeys.  One to Yosemite focusing on Earth Science and the other to Catalina to study Marine Biology.  This is some serious hands-on education. Thank you also goes our amazing chaperones Morgann Martinson, Jeff Del Bosque, Greg Knorr, and Lisa Bell. Notice to Cure and Correct Rescinded On Monday, February 23rd the Ventura County Board of Education voted to rescind the Notice to Cure and Correct.  The entire board was quite satisfied that we had appropriately addressed the concerns listed in the original Notice.  The county and board have full confidence in Bridges and the continuation of our Extensions child care program. After School Enrichment Classes The new after school enrichment classes will start the week of March 9th and extend until the end of May.  We have several exciting new offerings including Sky High Origami, Sky High Athletics, Comic Book Movies, and Special Effects.
