Week 1

Hello All,

The first four days of the Albert Bridge 2013-2014 school year have been busy and productive. Students are stepping up to the plate and showing what a great community West Windsor and Brownsville are.

The afterschool program is up and running.  Please contact us if you are interested!

Tuesday was our  first assembly of the year and we began a discussion about what a community is. A group of people who work together, help each other, and take care of each other were thoughts our students shared with each other.  We also read one of my favorite books about meeting someone new.

On Wednesday Albert Bridge Students and Faculty participated in a nation wide bell ringing to celebrate and commemorate the 50th anniversary of the "March on Washington".  Many thoughtful and challenging conversations took place in our walls about civil rights and how much work we still need to do as a nation to make sure ALL people are given the same opportunities. 

Soccer practice has started off with some good hustle! Grades 3-6 have practice this Saturday.  Thank you Matt, Eli, and  Anne for getting this off the ground this year!  Also, student athletes showed their leadership skills as they worked with the k-1 kids practice.  

Friday will be our second assembly and we will continue our discussion around what a community is and what our responsibilities are in our community!  Teachers have been working with the students to understand how our actions impact others.  I will be sharing a book about taking care of others during the Friday assembly.

Congratulations Albert Bridge School~Excellent start to the school year!
