The mission of Bridgepoint Elementary is to provide a child-centered learning environment which develops a high level of academic and social achievement based on the individuality and uniqueness of each student.
Our mission will be achieved by:
Providing a child-centered, caring environment which enhances academic, social, and individual growth.
Empowering the instructional staff to create an environment that provides a variety of educational experiences which foster learning skills through a diversified curriculum.
Enabling each student to function in the educational environment appropriate for his or her unique need.
Preparing students to be responsible citizens by working cooperatively with home, school, and community.
Bridgepoint Elementary believes each student will develop his/her highest potential as a life-long learner and responsible citizen in the home, school, community, and beyond through:
- a highly-qualified professional learning community.
- a balanced standards-based program.
- home/school support.
- community involvement.
- all-inclusive programs that focus on student needs.
Each day at Bridgepoint begins with the Bridgepoint Pledge to remind all students of expectations for learning and for behavior.
Our Bridgepoint PledgeTeacher starts by saying: “Good Morning” Students: “ I am a responsible and trustworthy Bridgepoint student” “I am here to persevere and learn” “I will work hard EVERY DAY to be a compassionate and respectful student! “I will show self control!” “I have PRIDE. I am Proud to be a Bridgepoint Bear!” “Let’s Work”
Bridgepoint Elementary School (BES) houses students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and has an enrollment of approximately 385 students. The mission of BES is to provide a child-centered learning environment which develops a high level of academic and social achievement based on the individuality and uniqueness of each student. BES believes each student will develop his/her highest potential as a life-long learner and responsible citizen in the home, school, community, and beyond. BES takes pride in its highly-qualified professional faculty and staff, its balanced standards–based academic program, its home-school support, community involvement, and all inclusive programs that focuses on “keeping kids first”.
As a Title I school, BES provides an additional 30 to 45 minutes of intervention in reading and math is provided every day. The intervention curriculum includes such programs as Read 180, Systems 44, LIPS, Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention, as well as teacher-created materials to supplement the grade level standards.
Our PRIDE Program is used to help our students develop and maintain appropriate behaviors. PRIDE stands for Persistence, Respectfulness, Initiative, Dependability, and Efficiency. Throughout the school year, additional character traits (responsibility, perseverance, respect, compassion, trustworthiness, and self-control) are taught and rewarded as part of our Bridgepoint PRIDE Program. School-wide student expectations are followed to make BES a safe and successful learning environment.
In addition to a top notch academic curriculum, extra-curricular activities offered at BES include cross country, track, girls’/boys’ basketball, wrestling, spirit club and BES Boppers. Students may also participate in chorus and other activities each year, as planned.
